This is the reason why I've been dying to get away.
I was right.
A trip can take all the gloomy days away and bring back some ray of sunshine back into my life.
I'm so happy and even if I obviously have gained a few pounds from all that (lechon) eating, I don't care. Frannywanny is finally BACK and I have Cebu to thank for it. *big grin*
that's my colleague Dottie!! :)
Anyway, for this trip, Summit Circle Hotel was our home for three whole days. It is adjacent to Robinsons Place Fuente and is located right at the heart of Fuente Circle. This is a good hotel option should you want to watch the Sinulog Festival in Cebu every January as the procession will definitely pass by in front of the hotel. The only thing you have to take note of when staying at Summit Circle Hotel during the peak season is the intense traffic as all the main activities will be done there. However, if you’re like us who goes to Cebu on regular, non-peak days, this would be a good option as you’ll definitely save time and money from the commute.
The hotel is just 10 minutes away from Ayala Cebu Mall, about 20 minutes away from SM Cebu and there are restaurants, convenient stores, banks, a drug store within walking distance. My favorite Shamrock store where I always drop by to buy some Otap and Chicharon is also within the Fuente Circle too.
As mentioned, the hotel is adjacent to a mall but do not expect much from this as ML and I were able to roam around the 3-storey mall in less than 10 minutes. It was that empty and quite unappealing for city shoppers like us. There are fast food chains there so it would be good should you want to take a quick bite but since you’re in Cebu, I highly recommend that you venture out a little more and try the numerous restaurants that make Cebu a truly good destination for foodies like you and me.
Over-all, we enjoyed our stay at Summit Circle Hotel as it was a good place to retire in after a busy day outside. Both ML and I slept soundly for the two nights that we were there and I would definitely consider this again on my next trip to Cebu.
Summit Circle Hotel is located at Fuente Osmena street, Cebu City, Cebu. Call them at +63-32-2393000. Visit their website here. They have ongoing promotions that would offer discounts for longer stays and for those flying in via Cebu Pacific too.
