Tucked in a residential neighborhood, Mezzo Hotel is a four-star accommodation at the border of Mabolo and Kasambagan in Cebu City, Philippines. While primarily designed as a business hotel, it’s also a great choice for leisure travelers because of its practical location within Metro Cebu. It’s situated in a quiet residential side street but still very accessible to trendy establishments along F. Cabahug St, where you can find restaurants, cafes, spas, bars and a popular club, Icon. Cebu Business Park, the business district where Ayala Center Cebu and Landers are located, is only a 15-minute walk away; while other shopping areas like Cebu IT Park (2 km) and SM City Cebu (1.8 km) are a short ride away. True to its name (pronounced met-zo), which means “middle” in Italian, this understated accommodation graced with warm Cebuano hospitality stands right at the heart of the action in the “Queen City of the South”.
Furnished with modern, minimalist interiors, The 10-storey hotel has 151 guest rooms, 35 serviced units, and function rooms that can accommodate up to a thousand people. Next to the lobby is the restaurant Cafe Mezzo, while further back is an open-air swimming pool with a small bar and a small gym for guests’ workout needs.
Cafe Mezzo at the ground floor, next to the lobby, serves breakfast and ala carte lunch and dinner, offering both local and international fare; while Piscine is a small poolside bar serving drinks and light snacks.
