Only an idiot pays more than meter in Cebu as they have a taxi line so why would anyone. Manila is different at Term. 1 just check with your hotel the average rate then offer a bit more and you will be there before people with checked bags even get out of airport

@  mamser : (27 May 2015 - 02:17 PM)

haha lazybugger that's the funniest thing i heard all day

@  lazybugger : (27 May 2015 - 01:33 PM)

on the plus side, a trike terminal is about the only place in the country where you'll find an orderly line

@  lazybugger : (27 May 2015 - 01:32 PM)

the main problem with trikes is that there are way too many of them

@  bobbydown : (27 May 2015 - 09:38 AM)

make her walk lol ( in heels ) BUT my girl takes a trike and i walk

@  Mentalist : (27 May 2015 - 09:36 AM)

at least we dont have to wait when we have a LBFM hand in hand

@  FurryFriend : (27 May 2015 - 09:36 AM)

but if a guy spends a lot of time there or even lives there, it's stupid not riding it as the primary means of transport

@  FurryFriend : (27 May 2015 - 09:35 AM)

to be fair, jeepneys are hard to figure out...so i can see why someone new in a location or someone who won't stay long won't bother to learn how to ride them

@  bobbydown : (27 May 2015 - 09:33 AM)

taxi prices are perplexing,,10000 usd car ride costs 200p.. A 55000 php trike in ac and the drivers ask 100 p when you can take an 8 pesos jeep

@  loverboy181 : (27 May 2015 - 09:32 AM)

Maybe this is why those companies still taking bookings.

@  loverboy181 : (27 May 2015 - 09:32 AM)

FG - ok thanks for that. Will see if I can find it

@  FurryFriend : (27 May 2015 - 09:31 AM)

The metered rate from Cebu airport to downtown is about P255. So I may offer P280. But I'd bet some drivers will try for P600, and I'm sure many newbies would do it.

@  loverboy181 : (27 May 2015 - 09:29 AM)

Guy picked me up once. Wanted 150 and I said no way. Put the meter on. Cost me 170. Just laughed and so did he. Should of taken my offer Sir.

@  bobbydown : (27 May 2015 - 09:29 AM)

eg term 3 to pasay is 85php but becomes 150. naia to ermita is 160 metered they want 250..

@  bobbydown : (27 May 2015 - 09:27 AM)

the driver want a 50 % mark up,paying in advance also stops them repeatedly saying traffic traffic,,

@  FurryFriend : (27 May 2015 - 09:25 AM)

No driver will agree to a fixed rate if it's remotely equal or less than the metered rate.

@  FurryFriend : (27 May 2015 - 09:25 AM)

A fixed taxi rate is only great if you already know approx how much the fare would be...and you can agree to a tad more to make sure he also has an incentive to get there in reasonable time. But if you don't know where you're going, asking for a fixed rate will only guarantee you'll get ass raped.

@  bobbydown : (27 May 2015 - 09:24 AM)

furry,,i was once take around an island on a 90 min taxi ride, the trip should have taken 10 mins, i could even understand his language that he was taking me round and round,,i had no choice except get out in the middle of nowhere,

@  fieldsguy : (27 May 2015 - 09:24 AM)

Now called Fields walking street hotel

@  loverboy181 : (27 May 2015 - 09:23 AM)

Have they knocked the actual hotel to the ground? Guess it was a waste at only 5 rooms but private.

Hi guys

Next May I will go for the first time to Cebu. I will stay in Cebu city.

Now I am searching for a hotel there. I travel alone so the hotel must be girlfriendly. I want to stay not to far from the 'action'
It must be a safe hotel and have WIFI and if possible also a a swimming pool. Price about P1000 - P1300.

can anybody advice me a good hotel?

i think your budget is far too low for a hotel with a pool but i could be wrong.

try Mango hotel it is close to the action and has a roof top pool. Google them see what you get.

Have been to Cebu and I always hotel hop, stay at one for 3 or 4 nights, then move on to another. Its good to see different areas. If I like the hotel, I go back to it next trip, if I dont, then never to return. I always use trip advisor, it gives you all the facilities, location, price and reviews. Please remember, Mango is a hsort, cheap taxi ride from any hotel in Cebu City, u dont have to stay within walking distance of it. Also check past hotel reviews via this site, it has given me good info.
Im back in Cebu in May as well, you will love it

Except for the price, Mango Park Hotel is what you are seeking. The website says P1850 for the standard room. I checked Agoda and AsiaTravel. They are not much better. Agoda was P1826 in May and AsiaTravel was P1840 in May.

Metro Park has rooms as low as P800 and it has a swimming pool.
http://metroparkhotelcebu.com
However, it is not next to any bikini bars but it is easy walking distance to Sunflower Disco, the discos at IT park and the casino at the Waterfront Hotel.

Otherwise, with no swimming pool, check these places in Cebu City, all P1000 or less per night. For some of them, you have to check the promo rate and compare on Agoda

Try the Hotel Pier Quatro...... 950p per night..... very cosy, quiet, friendly staff with security and gal friendly....japanese owned so I do not know how they retail to the westerners..... during my stay there the clientele were mostly asians...... although no swimming pool but it is located next to the pier (I have seen locals in the waters there)..... directly across the hotel is the Arena bar and some others within walking distance. :P

Hey guys

Since 1996, I have only stayed at the Cebu Century Hotel so can't help with what it is like to stay in the other hotels. However, I know the location.

It is easy walking distance to Mango Square where you will find several discos. It will be an easy walk to the bikini bars in that area such as Maverick (formerly the Silver Dollar). Many foreigners will catch a taxi but I personally would walk to the Mango Avenue bars from there.

If I was to stay in that same area, I believe I would stay at the Sampaguita Suites as it is much better located for everything.
