Sampaguita Suites JRG is located on Gen. Maxilom Ave in the uptown area of Cebu. The hotel offers budget accommodation in a popular area of Cebu, close to Mango Square (for nightlife), shopping, restaurants and hospitals.  The larger shopping malls of Ayala and SM are about a 10 to 15 minute drive away.

If you are looking for cheap accommodation during Sinulog, Sampaguita Suites is in a perfect location as you are right in the action. A lot of the hotels in Cebu do require a minimum stay of 3 nights, so if you are booking online you may have to enter this.  Expect large crowds in front of the hotel. As it is on a main street, getting transport from the hotel to other parts of Cebu are pretty easy. This includes both taxi and jeepney.  Traffic at times can get a bit chaotic in the area as well. If you plan on catching a taxi (the white ones) from the airport to the hotel, expect to pay around 250 PHP which should take around 30-40 minutes depending on traffic.

All rooms have air conditioning, cable TV and hot/cold shower; they start from the single room with a single sized bed up to their larger Executive Rooms which also come with mini bar. Sampaguita Suites has a coffee shop, restaurant and a back-up generator. Wi-Fi is available in the lobby.

Sampaguita Suites Plaza Garcia is its sister hotel located in the downtown area, if you catching a taxi from anywhere to the hotel make sure you specify which branch of the Sampaguita Suites you want to be taken to or you may end up at the wrong one!

My Review of the Sampaguita Suites in Cebu.

For the price you pay, Sampaguita Suites offers some good value for money in Cebu. The rooms simple but are pretty reasonable and the location is hard to bet.  Most things are within walking distance.  It makes for a pretty popular budget hotel in Cebu. Definitely a hotel worth some thought if you are planning to stay in Cebu. Overall I give it a rating of ABOVE AVERAGE.
