Cebu Accomodation: Sampaguita Suites Plaza Garcia

One of the most affordable place to stay in Cebu is Sampaguita Suites Plaza Garcia.  It is conveniently located in the city capitol grounds and a few steps away from Cebu's famous and historical landmarks like Basilica de Sto. Nino and Magellan's Cross and the chapel that houses it, along Magallanes Street, fronting the MCWD office.  A few blocks away, you'll find another historical site of Fort . What I also do like about Sampaguita Suites aside from the affordable accommodation rates, is that they have free Wi-Fi internet service that lets you go online and in touch with your family and friends through internet anytime you want. Plus one of their amenities is Glam Nails, a hand and foot spa that offers massage services, reflexology, body scrub, praffin treatment, waxing,  nail art, foot and hand spa, manicure and pedicure. My travel mates tried their room service body massage during our visit.

Sampaguita Suites Plaza Garcia is conveniently located in downtown Cebu.

During our visit in Cebu we availed their "Barkada Room" where 4 people can be accommodated for only P1,298 per room per night. Isn't it affordable for friends traveling on a budget but still gets quality hotel services? The furnishings of the hotels are new and well-maintained.  Staffs are friendly and accommodating too even during we had to be charge for not checking out on-time.  Moreover, The room that we stayed also a had a good view of the Cebu City Hall building overlooking with the famed Cebu's landmark - the chapel that houses Magellan's Cross.  Their location is very convenient for tourists who want to visit the must-see landmarks in Cebu as it is just near the hotel.  Access to public vehicles is also easy with the hotel's location as it is just near the main roads where various public vehicles can be taken by visitors.
