Golden Peak Hotel

Recommended Posts

motorboy

I am thinking of staying at Golden Peak Hotel for a month. They have a 30 day package for 25,000. This includes everything, from water, electricity, internet, and cable t.v. The location seems nice, and the rooms they offered my is on the 19th floor. They have a roof top grill and a place to eat on the second floor. Could I get your opinion on this place, and does this seem like a good deal for the price? Do you know of a similar or better deal in the area.  Would like to stay in Ayala area if possible. Thanks Jim

I looked at a condo there a couple of years ago.

 

The building is a little bit dated, but the location is really very good.  I think that package represents good value for a high floor, with everything thrown in.

 

The building is mixed condotel, so condos and hotel rooms.  Somebody told me it's the oldest tall building in Cebu.

They have a roof top grill

 

They finally did something with the roof top!?! How about the Jacuzzi they had there? Pictures, man, pictures.

We had dinner up rooftop resto few times last year. Live music.  Nice view around city. Food was good and reasonably priced. Parking is a pain in this rathole under the building.  Open only on weekends I think.

Do you get a kitchenette for 25k?

 Yes, the location is great. I used to live very near there and would walk to Ayala. There are quite a few places to grab a drink and eat there, you don't need to take taxis all the time while living there, although if you need one, there are plenty. 25,000 is a good deal for a serviced room.

For a relaxing evening try the rooftop restaurant and linger for a few beers. As noted, the view of the city is very good.

It sounds like a pretty good deal to me. Good find there, motorboy (Jim)!

no, but it does come with a small fridge. As I can't even eat my own cooking, not having a kitchen is a plus. The room was decent sized.

you might want to reach out to golden prince hotel, wellcome hotel and mandarin suites. I have stayed at all 3 and they are very close to ayala. they all also off free breakfast. you might want to talk to a manager to see about a monthly rate, but if you can get a free breakfast it might be worth looking into.

There are some things that would be expected while renting a room for 25,000 pesos per month room, in Cebu, though. Many of the hotel rooms which I found in the city centre (in that particular area, or not far away) would charge you 25,000 or 28,000 for a hotel room which would have a 20 year old TV (no joke, like the big old ones), and the bathroom would be filthy and the room itself would have barely enough space to walk around in. If the room is better than that, then consider yourself lucky. If however it is as how I described it, then I would feel terribly dissapointed, again. As I know places in other SEA countries in cities which are similar to Cebu on many levels, where you would get a much better room for even cheaper than that.

i stayed there twice about 6 years ago.

 

the first time i stayed i kind of liked it.  it was kind of oldy worldy and different so it seemed exciting.

 

the second time i stayed there i thought it was a dump.  the breakfast on both occasions was crap.  the receptionist was drop dead gorgeous.... but she will have moved on by now.

 

ive been at the rooftop for the barbie since....... i enjoyed it and its a real nice place to have a few beers.   a terrace at altitude in down town cebu could be real nice.

and it is a good location.... you can get wood fired pizza just across the road.

 

note they may have refurnished the rooms since i stayed there....... i havent even seen one, let alone stayed in it.

I doubt it. They usually dont care unless it all starts falling apart.

i stay  there all the time, and good deal,just watch out they not try to give u to single beds??  i use the 1000 night promo as u get lower floors ,i have been to all the hotels around there ,and its the best deal about,though the lifts can be slow to the top floors as the bottom 9 are offices ,there is  a way to get free internet ,but if u wanna know just pm me ,but not sure on the 19th floor as i use smart wifi, if i cant get theres, but it only just works some times?as does the wifi in the lobby,

lemme know when you get settled in there as we live only a short drive up the road. if you are finding yourself craving some good ole American style cooking my wife is always got something good planned for dinner. be warned tho...her conversations will make your brother's sound like walt disney.

Or, rather than going through and booking a stay for a couple of nights, etc., just ask them to show you the specific room you would be renting?

that's what I did. I said if I rented right now, show me my room. Will do the same thing when renting. They also offer a 10% discount on food ordered, hotel transportation, and free incoming faxes.

Free incoming faxes, eh? Ask 'em about 90 day rentals!

just checked in here at hotel. I am on the 19th floor, facing the mountain. Excellent view.  25,000 php, no extra charges or fees were thrown on. Room has a fridge, sink, and small counter. Nice sized bathroom with a tub. You can shower without getting the floor all wet. Cabinet for putting your clothes, couple of night stands with pull out drawers for more storage. Also small round table with one chair. Air works great. I had to put it on low cool as room became freezing quickly. Skycable is the t.v. programming they use.

 

Now the not so good: t.v. is older 19" model, room is outdated, and food sold on second floor is bland and expensive. San Miguel lights are 70 pesos. I will not eat there, better deals around for food. Internet seems to have its moments where it goes rather slow. I imagine heavy traffic right now

 

Everything is close by. I even found a laundry that will let you do your own with machines, but for some reason it costs more then to let them do it for you. If I were going to stay for a few months in room, I would throw a fresh coat of paint on (don't know if they would allow it though). Several companies work in the building, and seems like a place to meet a nice girl.

 

Will post pics when I unpack and dig out camera
