Video review of Paragon Suites in Cebu

Paragon Suites is a 6 storey, 37 roomed hotel on Juana Osmeña St. Along this street and side streets there are plenty of budget to mid ranged hotels all competing for your hard earned Dollar (Peso). So if you’re not happy with this hotel there are plenty of other options such as Premiere Citi Suites and NS Royal Pensionne to name a couple. I have a list of other hotels in Cebu here. It is a fairly popular area here due to the fact it is walking distance to Mango Square a popular night spot with numerous bars and discos.  Around Fuente Osmena Cirlce (again walking distance) you can find a number of restaurants and shops. There are also a couple of mid sized shopping malls.  There are also a number of hospitals nearby including Cebu Doctors and Chong Hua Hospitals, two of the best private hospitals in Cebu.  During January when Cebu holds its Sinulog Festival, this area of Cebu is one of the most popular places to be. If you plan on staying during the festival make sure to book early and expect to pay 2 or 3 times more. You will probably also need to stay a minimum amount of nights. To get from Cebu’s Airport to Paragon Suites expect to take around 45 minutes by (white) taxi and pay around 250 PHP or so depending on traffic.

Paragon Suites has its own Café Lucita (open 6:30AM to 10PM), a stand-by generator for lights and air conditioning, free WiFi access, room service, laundry and function room (for corporate functions, birthdays etc- can hold up to 30 people). The only difference between Standard and Superior rooms is the Superior has a window (and you pay extra for this privilege!). If you’re a returning guest make sure you let them know as there is a 5% discount (at the time I went). The cheapest room rate is there Economy Rooms which at times they have promo rates on. They offer room rates with or without breakfast. When I booked via Agoda they generally all seemed to include a breakfast which I just had the pancakes.

I don’t mind staying at this hotel at all. I found the font reception staff friendly and helpful and the location of the Paragon is in a fairly decent spot too, easy walking distance to many places to eat and shop. The rooms while nothing fancy are decent enough for the price.  I do prefer the Superior and above as you do get a window in the room. Overall I think Paragon Suites is an above average place to stay in Cebu.
