Original booking was for 4 nights, but weather in December is unpredictable. Typhoons cause havoc in ferry service so stay was extended to 9 nights. Hotel is inexpensive, short taxi ride from airport and even closer to ferry docks. Rooms are clean and in general well maintained. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Rooms facing the street are more subject... More

This is the typical "you get what you pay for place". Checking inn was a complete hassle. They couldn't find my reservation despite me having the booking confirmation. Early check inn is not possible, which I asked during booking but they did not respond. The front desk ladies are the worst. Unfriendly and gave us the wrong directions to tourist... More

Location was pretty ok, it's easy to hail cabs or get into their city shuttles. It was a good 5-minute walk to SM City Cebu. First thing that you will notice is how most of their front desk staff lack that needed "warmth" expected of a customer-facing person. Second, they give wrong directions when asked about tourist destinations. Third, the... More

Actually my last stay was August 2014 for my board exam. The place is just 5minutes(walking) away from SM Cebu and down stairs if you want to avoid crowded food stall in SM, Andok's is readily available or their restaurant. And 10-15 minutes via jitney from the North Bus Terminal . 30- 45 minutes away from Mactan Airport with traffic... More

Budget hotels are treasures waiting to be discovered. I love trying out cheap, simple and clean hotels or inns. My experience in Express Inn, Cebu City, was really not bad but I feel like I'm not going to stay there again. Here are the good points of the hotel: 1. They have courteous staff. 2. The bed's not bad for... More

As this place is pretty much a walking distance away from SM Cebu, this is very convenient. The room where we stayed in is small but still nice, with lots of wall sockets for you and your companion to charge your gadgets. Breakfast is simple but yummy.

The place is clean and I was happy with how the staff handled my enquiries, The first thing I noticed when I entered the room was that there was funky smell (Coming from the bathroom) but I will definitely go back here once I visit Cebu.

Express Inn in Mabolo, Cebu is a moderately sized bugdet friendly hotel. The place is walking distance from SM mall. The rooms that we checked in are clean, however cable TV have few channels. The downside is the staff are a little slow in accommodating your needs from the front desk to room service. Overall not that bad.

I have been a customer at this inn for several years and tolerated the inefficiencies having given more importance to other factors, but now I will not return. On a recent stay I booked 3 nights online because I had business at the Bureau of Immigration and I believed it would take me 3 days to complete this business. When... More
