I have been regularly visiting Cebu for the past 8 years both for work and leisure purposes. I have always struggled with value hotels in the past. Now, this doesn't seem to be a problem anymore for the Queen City of the South, with the opening of new hotels such as the Alpa Suites, Elizabeth Hotel, Harolds and now, Quest Hotel.
I usually book in Harolds, but when Quest opened, and offered an irresistible rate, I couldn't pass the chance to give them a try. I am a sucker for promotions, especially if the hotel is new. So I booked a room under their promo opening rate of P2,300 nett with breakfast.
Quest Hotel is located in front of Ayala Center Cebu. You practically cross the street to get to the mall. So location is really a big plus for Quest. It is positioning itself as a business hotel, as it also has a convention center. I haven't seen it though, so I cannot mention its size.
But seeing their restaurant, I knew that the hotel is huge. The restaurant can probably fit 500 guests. It's spacious and lacking in charm almost because of its enormity.
The rooms are also very basic. I actually like Harolds better overall, but for the location and the price, Quest competes in value. It's still new, so it's clean and functional. Quest just doesn't have a lot of amenities open yet. I think the pool is not yet open, so there's really nothing much to do here. If you want value for your money, think of staying in Quest. Take the advantage now with their opening rates.
