I was asked by a friend to look around the internet for a nice and comfortable place to stay in while they will be Cebu City, Philippines. So I let my fingers do the walking and I found this rather cool place called Elicon House.
I would love to talk more about it but I would rather that you read it from the source of someone that has stayed in the house and tried their services.
But for quick reference here are their contact details:
P. Del Rosario Street, Cebu City, 6000 Cebu, Philippines
Phone: (032) 255-0300
Fax: (032) 253-0367

As a special treat for those that are planning to visit this Island in the South of Luzon here are some quick facts:
Often called the Queen City of the South and the Seat of Christianity in the Philippines , Cebu is the country's oldest city. Exploring Cebu City , one encounters a rich historic past. Cebuanos are extremely proud of their cultural and historical heritage, a legacy which has endured through the centuries from the time the great explorer Ferdinand Magellan first planted the cross on Cebu 's shore. Time has been kind to Cebu . From Zubu, the busy trading port in 1521, it has evolved into a highly urbanized metropolitan center which now serves as focal point of growth and development in Southern Philippines.
Cebu has at least nine economic zones that offer to cut bureaucratic red tape by providing a much easier system for investors, plus incentives.
Cebu is number one because of good fiscal management: it ranks highest among the countrys provinces in terms of assets and cash in bank.
Most importantly, Cebu ranks number one because of the current unity that has never before been seen in any province: unity among elected officials, unity among business groups, unity among its people, and unity between the private and public sectors.
There are many universities and other educational institutions that serve as magnet to students from other provinces, a major factor of a highly skilled and efficient workforce in Cebu.
Overall, Cebu continues to excel and investors are drawn to Cebu because of the culture of professionalism and craftsmanship among its people, the vast highly skilled manpower resources resilient amid trying times, its fair weather, relative peace and business-friendly atmosphere.
