With a handily location in Cebu City, Cebu Parklane International Hotel sits as a polished contemporary building that’s only about two minutes of walk away from the Ayala Center Mall and a 30-minute drive from Mactan-Cebu International Airport. We stayed here for a night and had a comfortable, quiet, and restful sleep. This hotel features conservative rooms and suites that have free Wi-Fi connection, flat-screen TV and coffee-making facilities. Upgraded quarters offer access to a lounge with free cocktails. Cebu Parklane International Hotel is highly recommended for vacations that combine leisure, business, and pleasure altogether.
Review of Cebu Parklane International Hotel (N Escario Street, Cebu City)
Cebu Parklane International Hotel opened in 2006, yet this 10-year-old establishment still looks fresh and modern today. With an atmospheric and inviting air, the ground floor houses the concierge, reception area, lobby, and a slick yet cozy restaurant.
The interior design offers a touch of luxury without commanding the sort of sky-high prices you’ll find at the city’s five-star hotels. To enhance guests’ stay, Cebu Parklane International Hotel also has recreational facilities such as garden, gym, outdoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna, and pool for kids. Other recreational amenities include a fitness center, bicycle rentals nearby, playground on site, mountain biking nearby, laundry, and spa services.
Every floor and room gets guests a glimpse of the rich Cebuano culture as there are murals and photos depicting the history, various activities and festivities in Cebu. Smart, well-furnished upholstered rooms are tastefully decked out in a muted color palette. They’re quite spacious and stylish, just enough to calm the eyes after a busy day. Hot/cold shower, tub, complete bathroom toiletries, and clean towels are available. Beds have high-quality mattress that give premium support. What’s most amazing is that the 241 hotel rooms are soundproofed!
Parklane Hotel is proud to claim that it is the first and the only hotel owned and managed by an all Filipino staff, comprised primarily of Cebuanos. Thus, Parklane stands firm to its tagline being “A Hotel in Cebu that Stands for Cebu.” The staff were all nice and accommodating. Checking in and out was easy and hassle-free. The guards/concierge helped us book and arrange taxicabs to drive us to our destinations.
The breakfast buffet (complimentary for hotel guests) at Manuel’s Restaurant inside the hotel was excellent. With a good variety of delicious food, portions were ample and tasty. You won’t need to search for any other restaurants early in the morning to solve and satisfy your hunger. From appetizers, mains, drinks and desserts, the hearty meal will make your taste buds jump for joy. 🙂
