hi sis purpleish, thanks sa info. mas gusto din namin gabi pumunta sa crown regency para sa edge coaster and sky walk. yun talaga ang di namin papalagpasin. sa hotel stella din kami stay pero try namin check yun apple. either way excited na kami sa cebu trip kaso sa June 2013 pa. :P thanks again sis.

sis babygirl00, salamat at sinagot mo dilemma namin ni hubby kung with breakfast ba kunin namin sa hotel o bili na lang sa labas. hehe, much better na nga bili sa labas kaya yun standard room na lang kunin namin sa hotel stella. ;)

^breakfast options for you around Hotel Stella would be Bo's Coffee or Jollibee :)

sis presyosa ligaya ...welcome sis =) yung apple tree suites, nasa fuente circle lang siya at the back ng Elegant Circle Inn... kaya ang ginagawa namen nun bili na talaga sa labas bago pumunta ng stella kasi walang nearby na makakainan, di tulad sa Apple Tree, 5mins walking andun na lahat ng needs... mas convenient lalo na with kids...

sis Starlust ...sis saan banda dun yung Jollibee?? tatawid pa ba ng kabilang street dun sa main road?? kasi nung nag lakad kame from Crown Regency to Stella wala kameng nakitang kainan na malapit sa area ng Jasmine street??

sis babygirl00 ...yung kinuha namen na room sis na P999.00 yan yung walang breakfast...

@purpleish - you just need to walk to the main road (Osmena) then cross. The Jollibee is beside Cebu Doctors Hospital. 3 mins walk tops. There is also a Jo's Chicken Inato (chicken inasal) & an Orange Brutus (30 year old Cebuano fast food chain - I've loved them since I was a kid) & a Red Ribbon on the opposite end of the street.

Also, madaming kainan near Hotel Stella :) one of the best seafood restaurants in the city, STK Ta Bay! is less than 5 mins walk away from it (beside STK are several other places to eat - bbq or grilled seafood) & on the same street as Hotel Stella there is also One Claypot House which serves asian regional specialties (Malay, Singaporean, etc.)

Fuente Osmena Circle is 360 meters away by walk - less than 10 mins. Not so far for us & we're used to walking but as you said you had kids so baka that was the deciding factor :)

We stayed at Hotel Stella to test it again last Nov 3-5. The first time we stayed here was last March. We got the standard room this time without breakfast, first time we got the deluxe. It's impressive for a hotel that falls under the budget category even if it can run a bit small. Water pressure in the shower is OK. Rooms & bed linen are clean, no funky smell!

Crimson is OK but can get overcrowded. You'll notice it during breakfast. It's very popular with Koreans :)

sis purpleish, kita ko na yun apple suites dito (http://www.appletreesuitescebu.com/index.html). parang mas gusto ko yun ambiance sa hotel stella but i'll show this one to hubby. :) thanks sis Starlust for the additional information, especially sa seafood restaurants. ;)

sis, kung ganyan din lang kaiksi stay nyo mag-sugbutel na lang kayo kasi halos wala na rin kayong itutulog nyan. hehe! pag 30 days advance, 99 pesos lang per bed dorm-type. walang prob sa gamit nyo kung pupunta kayong oslob, pwede nyo syang iwan sa locker nila, 25 or 30 pesos lang yong fee. pagdating sa taxi, wala din kayong prob kasi kahit madaling araw may taxi na nakatambay don sa baba & hindi naman ganon kamahal ang patak non hanggang south terminal. :) ayaw ko rin kasing suggest sa inyo na mag-commute kasi parang manila din ang cebu, daming loko pag ganyang oras. :-\

@sis isabella: okay rin ang BE Resort, mura lang ang day tour nila kaso walang libreng buffet. :)  When we went to BE last September 16, wala masyadong tao tapos you can feel that you own the resort.  You can also check out Imperial Palace Resort and Spa.

I agree with sis starlust that Crimson can get overcrowded and I think it is sort of overrated hehe Mas maganda pa ang Plantation Bay or Shang. :)

sis Starlust ...yun nga lang sis medyo dadayo pa sa main road... since meron kameng kasama kid, mas madali bumili dun sa kilala nang mga kainan... tyaka mas pabor den samen yung Apple, kasi malapit lang siya sa Crown Regency, sayang den kasi sana yung pwedeng ma-sesave sa taxi, hirap pa naman nung dating namen sobrang init kung mga 10-15mins walk pa going fuente...try sana namen mag commute sa multi, kaso wala palang dumadaan sa Jasmine street,  pag nag totour naman kame hndi naman kame malimit sa room, talagang explore namen yung place...kaya mas easy access sana kung malapit within fuente circle...

for the ambiance, okies sa Hotel Stella ;)

sis presyosa ligaya ...if ambiance mas bago talaga sa Hotel Stella ;) kung location wise para easy access sa mga needs Apple akech :)

^yes sis, keri lang talaga ang day tour sa BE. tapos I noticed if high tide maganda ang dagat sa BE compare sa katabing resort or it is just me. hahaha tapos what I like BE rin is, maganda ang register ng surroundings when you take a photo. Andami ngang nagtanong sa akin if ano daw pangalan ng resort na pinuntahan ko kasi maganda daw, eh sa BE lang yun  ;D

oi maganda yan sis ha if ever pwedeng mag day tour sa Crimson kung guest ka sa Quest Hotel. :D
