Toyoko Inn, Mandaue

We stayed here for three nights this past week. Place was chosen solely because of its proximity to the J Centre mall immigration office. The hotel is above the mall. Free shuttle from Mactan airport took twenty minutes both ways.

Rooms were a bit small for my liking but immaculately clean and well-organized (it's part of a massive Japanese hotel chain). 

Check-in/check out very efficient. They got nearly 600 rooms so it had better be.

If you're traveling with young kids, there's a water park on the 6th floor with those giant slides. Free for guests. 24h convenience store on the 6th floor as well

The breakfast buffet was sufficient but not exactly intimate. Think 300 people at a time eating breakfast off trays in a cafeteria setting. A bit jarring eating your breakfast with a few hundred strangers unless you've done prison time, I guess. Guests about 90% Korean/Japanese.

Five high-speed elevators couldn't keep up with all the people coming and going. Spent a lot of time waiting for the elevators.

Wife liked the place more than I did. But if you need the convenience of getting to immigration when they open at 8:30 AM then this is your spot. Especially if you got small kids. Pools and cafeteria very family friendly. 2k a night.

We'll stay somewhere else next time but I'd recommend the Toyoko Inn for the above reasons/circumstances.

they have free airport shuttle as well.. on the hour..   and discount for loyalty card holders..  5% in week 10% on weekends..   I usually stay there the night before departure now..  

I dislike breakfast there..  edible..  just.

elevators are a pain.

rooms quite nice..  never a complaint about the rooms

I think immigration opens at 8..  not 8.30

Its more a business style hotel - not really for holidays.

I found the mattreses are very hard, not nice to sleep on - but maybe that was because it had just opened 2 years ago.
Its only good when they offer a promo with free entrance to the waterpark - othrwise its totally overpriced, especially for the breakfast buffet!
