Loved it here. Each time I have been to Cebu we stayed at Kiwilodge. Staff was awesome. Rooms were clean. Food was delicious! We tried many filipino dishes but they also had westernised meals too. My boyfriend loved that they played all the Rugby and League games too! On our last night we even had a rooftop party where we... More

This was my fifth stay at Kiwi. As usual I enjoyed it. The food is getting a bit pricey so I ate mostly across the road at DON JUAN. However, this hotel has a nice atmosphere and I will always return. Good wifi in most rooms but it struggles to reach the furthest rooms. A great place to use as... More

There are better located hotels around. Atmosphere is good. Food is average in my books, I prefer to go to places like William Ninoy's Payag for food and meeting other expats. Theres also cheaper hotels and close walk to fuente / mango in Baseline, Ramos, Fuente.

I have stayed here many times in the past. The reception staff is always accommodating and helpful. The beer is always cold. The rooms are comfortable and large enough. The breakfast is excellent and the waitresses are always available and polite. I will always stay here any time I am in Cebu.

I only stayed for one night, however, was satisfied with my stay. The staff are friendly and the food at the café/bar downstairs was good. The room had a nice oscillating ceiling fan :), aircon and its own hot water heater for the shower. Shower curtain would be nice to prevent everything in the CR from getting wet. Noticed quite...

It costs roughly 250 pesos to get here from the airport. Make sure you get a taxi from international departures instead of arrivals. The police keep them out and they are the cheapest. The hotel is clean, the staff are nice, and the rooms are decent. They have AC, Fan, hot shower, TV with cable, everything you need. It costs... More

I stayed here at the recommendation of a friend and was very pleased, especially with the staff. They were so pleasant and helpful and considerate. As I often venture out late, they were always reminding me to be cautious and providing tips for greater safety. The beer was always good and cold; the food was good but not great.

I have been to Kiwilodge 3 times over the last 10 years. The service and time I have had their has always been excellent. It is possible to find cheaper accommodation but Kiwilodge has comfortable, clean rooms which are in a safe area and off the main road so you get a good nights sleep. Central position between SM and... More

Ive stayed at Kiwi Lodge several times. You really cant find a better place to stay when popping into Cebu. The location is excellent, the rooms are well kept and there is no where you will find a better rate for quality and atmosphere. There is always good company in the open restaurant-bar area. The food is good, its comfortable... More
