Together with a colleague, I flew to Cagayan de Oro this February to check out Healthy Options in Centrio Mall. (It’s one of our team’s mission this year to visit all our stores across the Philippines.) Part of the experience was an overnight stay at Seda Centrio Hotel. Fortunately, this hotel is located just right beside the mall, so we didn’t have to travel far and spend more time elsewhere. Because of its strategic location and first-rate facilities, Seda Centrio – Cagayan De Oro is a popular pick for both business and leisure travelers. It offers quality accommodation in the business, shopping, and restaurants district of CDO.
Review of Seda Centrio Hotel (Cagayan De Oro, Misamis Oriental)
Right at the center of one of the most progressive hubs and the gateway of northern Mindanao Island, Seda Centrio melds an excellent location, outstanding customer service, and superior quality into a memorable hospitality experience.
Seda Centrio shares a roof with the upscale Centrio Mall. Though connected to the mall, it ensures security and exclusivity with a private entrance that leads to the Front Desk at the 4th floor where guests are greeted by a contemporary open layout connecting the lobby seamlessly into an e-lounge with its bank of iMacs and Misto restaurant and bar. Further up are the meeting rooms while outdoors, the “al fresco” dining area leads up to the adult and children’s pools.
Tastefully decorated with elegance, each room at this hotel is air-conditioned and is fitted with a flat-screen TV. There’s also a kettle, a vault, and a mini refrigerator. The private bathroom has a neat layout with a shower enclosure and conveniences: electrical hairdryer, bathrobe and slippers, towels, and basic toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush kit, body wash, shaver kit, and napkins. The beds were comfortable and the atmosphere was quiet. The Wi-Fi connection was fast, stable, and reliable. I could work here all day! Overall, Seda Centrio has well exceeded my expectation. 🙂
The staff were straightforward, nice, and efficient. We had a mix-up while checking in (we were mistakenly booked at Seda Abreeza in Davao), and the receptionist helped in checking for available accommodation and transferring the booked location to CDO. We tried calling the phone to ask where the hairdryer was and it was answered in just one ring. Servers at Misto Restaurant were also pleasant and very welcoming. Everyone greeted us amiably with a smile.
Our booking included breakfast buffet in Misto Restaurant, and we were spoiled for choices. 🙂 Misto had an extensive selection of comfort food for breakfast: eggs, bacon, cured meat, yogurt, bread, waffles, pancakes, salads, rice, sausages, cereals, adobo chicken, veggies, fruits, soup, and more. I love the mix of Filipino and Continental food variety. The arrangement of the dining area was great; there’s a lot of privacy and it’s notable that the servers take pride in making our experience relaxing and enjoyable. Two thumbs up!

Price for Value:
Seda Centrio is truly a premier lifestyle destination, a perfect place for de-stressing, family bonding (staycation), or staying in for a business trip. It has a close proximity not only to Centrio Mall, but it’s also easy walking disance away from SM CDO Downtown Premier and Gaisano City Mall CDO.
Prices are not bad. The deluxe room (twin room – 1 king bed or two single beds) costs around P4500/night. No wonder why it is rated for the best value in Cagayan de Oro. If you’re visiting CDO soon and want to stay in an oasis in the middle of the bustling city, you can’t go wrong with choosing Seda Centrio as your home away from home! It delivers on all of the expected staples of the brand. Nice and friendly staff, delectable food, modern, streamlined design, and the homey, personal vibe all help make it a solid value stay. 😉 Highly recommended!
