SDR Apartments

SDR Serviced Apartments
Cebu accommodation at it’s best
Open 24hrs
website: http://sdrapartments.com
Call: +63-32-238-3929 or +63-9165428621
Address: Brgy. Matumbo, Pusok, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, 6015 Philippines

SDR Apartments

Location: I don’t really like the location of SDR Apartments, it’s a bit away from things, you have to walk about 15 minutes to the nearest mall, Marina Mall, and that mall is not the greatest. Otherwise, when you look out the window of your room, there is not much but flatlands, trees, and I even seen some cows/caribou
Facilities:
The Staff: Was always very nice and kind
The Room: The room was great, big room, big bed, nice couch and tv area with dvd player, a kitchen with stove, a toaster oven, water boiler, fridge full of bottled water, also has cooking utensils, pots, pans, silverware, plates, bowls, just about anything you’ll need for cooking
Extras: FREE high-speed (fibre-optic) 4MB Internet via cable (not a slow and unsecured shared Wi-Fi), I didn’t use this, I was using my Smart Bro instead. I love how there are tons of bottled water in the fridge.
Tip: For quick and cheap food give Cora’s Eatery directly across the street
Negatives: When I stayed there my room was right next to an area of the building they were doing construction, I only stayed 1 night, but that next morning 8-11am early morning I wake up to drilling, pounding, LOUD noises of construction, I was in shock they would actually allow this at so early in the morning, it was insulting to me. I know places need repairs and construction, but I am very against morning hammering, any hotel, apartment or living quarters that do this gets BIG negative points from me. Loud hammering should only be done in afternoon

I was walking around Ayala very early looking for a breakfast spot, and I ran into UCC Coffee, I love that they open at 7am unlike the other restaurants and shops at Ayala (most open around 10am). I walked in and was greeted with a japanese saying for “welcome”, all the cute girls had big smiles and were very friendly. UCC originated in 1958 and now has 300 branches worldwide, mostly in Asia

The Menu:
What I Ate: I had the eggs sunny side up, with corned beef hash, wheat toast, and salad, it was all delicious!
The Staff: Very nice staff, you have a button on your table, just push it whenever you need something
The Bathroom:

Conclusion:
