Harolds Hotel, Comfort and Good Taste while doing business

Having a business trip in Cebu? Harolds Hotel is a premiere business hotel that you may want to try for a change.

It is relatively small than the other business hotels that came before it but it doesn't necessarily mean that it offers less especially when it comes to comfort.

With comfort, I am talking about the rooms. It is elegant-looking befitting a business executive. It is sound-proof I think since I was not able to hear outside noise from the room where I was staying.

The bed is made of memory foam thus one is assured of a good night's sleep. Beside the bed is a dock for your smartphone that can serve as a speaker for playing music or as an alarm clock of sorts.

Inside the room are the following for your use:

There is also a safety deposit box, a working desk, 32-inch LCD screen with cable TV programming and complimentary wired internet connection.

The minibar is complete with coffee or tea setup.
The comfort room is very nice although I wish that the bath tub was bigger or a little longer.
In some rooms, one can control the "cover" of the bathroom so that from one's bed, the bathtub and the bathroom can be seen. (Obviously, these are for couples on a honeymoon of sorts.)

Dining at the H Hotel will make you forget about dieting. They offer set menu this Summer as well as buffets. Looking at just the pictures below, I am sure you would want to take a bite.

The buffet offers a wide selection of food and may include lechon.

Parties can be held at the Highlights on the roof deck where live entertainment is offered also late in the evening.

There is also a fitness center in the hotel but I haven't personally tried it. There are also meeting facilities and function rooms.

For those looking for a swimming pool however, there is none.

Want to know more of Harolds and perhaps make a booking? You can visit their website here where you can do online booking.

Harolds Hotel is located at Gorordo Avenue corner Rosal street. Jeeps plying the Lahug route pass the area.
