About Elicon House

Elicon House is an eco-friendly conservation house that acts as a hotel, hostel, and dorm and is just a two-minute walk from the University of San Carlos in the heart of Cebu City, Philippines.

Rooms at the hotel come with a television, private bathroom, and air conditioning. Select rooms have a work desk and seating area.

There is a common room at the hotel that has board games, ping pong, and foosball, in addition to a kid's nook featuring toys. The property also has a library and a garden featuring plants, fish, and a turtle.

There is an on-site restaurant at Elicon House called the Elicon Café. The restaurant offers local cuisine using ingredients from local farmers and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The hotel is about a kilometre from Casa Gorordo Museum, the house owned by the city's first bishop, and just over a kilometre from Magellan's Cross, which is a relic symbolic of Christianity's start in the Philippines.

Positive Reviews

Very good security

There is 24-hour security at the hotel, helping travellers to feel safe. Guests appreciate having this security available because it means that unwanted people are not able to get into the building at all.

Convenient location

Accommodating staff

Employees of the hotel are accommodating and guests enjoy their interactions with them. The majority of visitors say that the staff is helpful and friendly as well.

Negative Reviews

No hot showers

Because of the eco-friendly nature of the hotel, hot showers are not available. The lack of hot showers leaves guests disappointed, as they expect to have the chance to take one when staying at a hotel.

Outside food not allowed

Policy at the hotel states that visitors cannot bring outside food or drinks into their rooms and will be fined if they try. Travellers aren't happy with these rules because it means that they have to buy food at the hotel's restaurant if they wish to eat there.

Cockroaches in the rooms

Guests complain about finding cockroaches in their rooms at the hotel. The presence of these bugs makes it difficult for visitors to rest at night.
