Staycation: Cebu Parklane International Hotel

As I mentioned in my previous post, we were supposed to be in Bantayan Island for 3 days and 2 nights but since there was no more room available, we just book one night in Cebu Parklane International Hotel and one night in Crimson Mactan Resort and Spa

After our check-out in Cebu City Marriott Hotel, off we went to Cebu Parklane International Hotel. If it is not hot and if we don’t have luggage we can just walk (long walk) to our next hotel but we still rode taxi.

Akala siguro ng taxi, maliligaw niya kami, he was supposed to turn left tapos bigla nagright. My husband said, boss, nasa left yung hotel di ba. Taxi driver said “no left turn po.” Hmmm, wala naman sign na no left turn and bigla siya nag-U-Turn, na mas nagcause ng traffic kaysa sa simpleng left turn lang. Wala pa kasi P50 ang metro kaya siguro gusto kami paikot-ikutin. 

Every time my husband goes to Cebu, he always stays in Cebu Parklane International Hotel since this is just near their Cebu office. We went to the reception and I was glad that the room was ready already. The lobby was crowded because there were politicians and supporters who also stay in the hotel. #campaignperiod 

The room was not that big and it looks so dark. Parang ang lungkot lang ng dating. I even asked my husband, ganito ba talaga yung room? He said no, mas ok daw yung mga naging room niya dati.

The bed is good for 2 persons only and not good for a family of 3. 

The bathroom is small but it has bath tub. 

We just took a rest and off we went out for our Cebu City Tour

After our city tour, we slept and my husband woke me up and asking me kung san kami magdinner. We’re supposed to eat at Kuya J Restaurant pero tamad na ko maglakad pa so he just bought dinner at Sinangag Express

One thing that I look forward in Cebu Parklane International Hotel is the buffet breakfast at Manuel’s restaurant because we don’t have free buffet breakfast in Cebu City Marriott Hotel. Hehehe! 

The buffet spread is good naman, may danggit din. :)

We’re supposed to check the swimming pool but we decided to check-out early at baka matraffic na naman kami on our way to Mactan. 


1. The location is near Ayala Mall. 

2. They have 3 restaurants; Manuel’s Restaurants, Bean Date and Kan-Anan
3. If you want to save money, there are restaurants outside, walking distance from the hotel. 
4. The service and food are good. 


1. We are a family of 3 and the bed is so small, ang layo sa website photos nila. Room 1111 

2. The room looks dark and amoy kulob din pagpasok, maybe because of the carpet near the bathroom. 
3. Free wifi but only good for 2 gadgets.

Tip: If your company has a corporate account that you can use in a hotel, use it to get a better rate. 

Update February 2018:

My husband stayed in this hotel for three days and he borrowed iron para alisin yung gusot sa damit niya. He was advised that they will get the iron after 30 minutes. Waah! May time limit ang paggamit, hehehe!. I just hope they will provide iron and iron board in the guest room just like other international hotels. 

Anyway, there is a seafood buffet restaurant near this hotel. You might want to try the Isla Sugbu Seafood City Paluto All You Can


  1. It looks nice pero ang pangit pag amoy kulob. hehe. We're also a family of 3 so we would need a bigger space as well.

  2. Yeah the rooms so dark nga. It should be brighter. But having a bathtub on my restroom. Im super duper okay with that. No. 1 talaga sakin ang nice cr :) Thanks for the tips :)
