Nice hotel and service. Room and bathroom were clean. The location is not good (very dark street that seems not be a secure place). However is close to airport (10 min by taxy). Good price. I recommend.

Good location, walking distance to SM City Cebu. But they are super strict with their check-in time unlike other hotels though they allow you to leave your things. Breakfast is included. Their mobile number is sometimes hard to reach, it just keeps on ringing.

My wife and I have stayed here multiple times and are satisfied in most ways but always a few things that are annoying and most of them could be resolved. The rooms are basic but provide all the things needed to make it functional. The cable tv is just okay....some channels are of very poor quality in either the picture... More

There are cheaper, better quality places around for under 1000 pesos offering superior location. Try for example up around near Fuente / Ramos Street, Baseline and Capitol area. RESTAURANT: Staff stood around at the register and customers waited to get served. The food was slow on delivery and was ordinary to say the least. Try the indian place at APM... More

The area is dirty and smells of sewage. The hotel smelt of rotten eggs when we first checked in. The rooms are dark, moldy and dingy. Mattress is thin and killed both our backs. Pillows are good. Towels are stained and torn. The floor in the room looks like the asphalt on roadways, concrete. The front desk were nice. Breakfast... More

Couldn't complain much for the price. The hotel is better than my expectation. I had to stay here becos of a last min change in travel plan - storm was coming and needed to leave the island for the land. It's very near the SM mall and only 30 mins away from the airport. Bed is comfortable, aircon is working... More

When in Cebu City I will surely stay at Express Inn hotel for its location is strategic. If you want to go shopping you should stay at Express Inn Mabolo coz it's very near to big department stores and if you are frequent flyers to other domestic and international destinations via Cebu you must stay at Express Inn Mactan.

This is a budget hotel in cebu city. The rooms are big, beds are comfortable. However, my room is located along the highway so i can hear the noise of the cars and commuters outside. Also, they do not provide shampoo and soap in the bathroom and no slippers too. I have stayed in other budget hotels in cebu where... More
