Last July 2013, I had the chance to revisit Cebu with my family. The trip was my brother’s and cousin’s first in Visayas so I wanted them to have the best experience. Although the hotel where I stayed on my last trip was good, I decided to look for a new one. My previous hotel is located in a crowded area and the ambience is not relaxing that is why I decided to search for the recommended but not-so-expensive hotels. I visited blogs and tripadvisor and then I discovered Escario Central Hotel.
Escario Central Hotel is a relatively new hotel with 46 guestrooms. Some cab drivers are not yet familiar with the location. Just mention the Zubuchon and Escario Central Mall and they will know where to take you.
RATE and RESERVATIONS – Booking is relatively easy. I just emailed them and they replied fast. No need for deposit to confirm the reservation and all payments should be made upon arrival at the hotel.
Red Room Php 1,500 net (2 double beds good for 2)
Orange Room Php 1,800 net (2 queen size beds good for 2)

11 above – 500php
Early Check in:

AMENITIES – The rooms are all brand new and the beds are comfortable and soft. All amenities including the bathroom and air conditioner are well-maintained. Hot and cold shower is available. The rooms also have complimentary bottled water, wi-fi, cable tv, soap and shampoo.
Aside from the basic room amenities, they also have other guest amenities outside. The garden has tables and chairs where guests can hang anytime of the day. The reception area also has a television and computer.
STAFF – The staff are all nice and very accommodating. They helped us in carrying our luggage and in getting cabs. You can ask for free hot water and utensils if you are planning to eat in the garden.
ACCESSIBILITY – The hotel is very accessble as it is near the Ayala mall. Many multicabs, jeepneys and cabs are passing by the area so commuting is not a hassle. Beside the hotel are the establishments at the Escario Central Mall. There are restaurants like the zubuchon and a pasta place, mcdonald’s, 7-11, a bar and a milk tea shop.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay and I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Escario Central Hotel is located at N. Escario Street Kamputhaw Cebu City 6000 Philippines.
