Rajah Park Hotel

Thursday, September 21, 2017
Rajah Park Hotel is one of the hotels along the Fuente Osmena rotunda in Cebu City. We chose this location because it's central, taxis abound at all hours, and the free shuttle from Robinsons Galleria has a stop at Robinsons Fuente, just several steps from the hotel. Rajah Park can be classified as a standard hotel, with adequate-sized rooms, buffet breakfast, room service, restaurant, and a casino.
Panoramic view from outside the lobby doors. The Fuente Osmena circle park is just across. People come here to relax, especially as the night comes. There are benches, statues, pokemon stops.
At night, the hotel's name shines over its facade.
Hotel lobby
The breakfast buffet has been set-up behind the lobby sofas, and extends to the restaurant bar area.
The atrium can be seen in room floors, where this spiral stair envelopes a large column.

Malate Pensionne  is one of the decent city hotels. It's located smack in the middle of Malate, with a connecting door to Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, walking distance to shops, bars, and many Korean restaurants. There's a courtyard garden in the compound with tables and plants. Limited parking slots in front, along Adriatico Road. Internet cafes, spa massages, and other services are available across the street. If you need budget,-cheapo food, just walk to the corner (Remedios Street) and you'll find affordable eateries.

Bulawan Floating Restaurant

Sunday, September 17, 2017
I'd recommend Bulawan Floating Restaurant for a leisurely lunch or dinner if you happen to be in the area, or perhaps bound for Pililla Windmills like we were. It has a large fish pond where you can do some fishing. When you catch anything, you'll have to pay for it then they'll cook it for you however you like. Rod rental was around Php100. 
Bulawan Floating Restaurant parking area
From the gates, you can see the Pililla Windmills on top of the mountains.
Interior fish pond with smaller fishes.
Dining areas have different setups, located in various areas of the restaurant. This one can accommodate a dozen.
The place was sunny, windy, cheery, and relaxing. Walk around the compound and immerse in the laid back atmosphere.
Fishing folks
You can also dine outside while fishing.
Fish pond
Over the pond looked like a field or swamp which extends to the lake.
Separate comfort rooms for male and female.
More pathways.
