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

Service is prompt. Rooms are clean with free wi fi and small Windows. Not much of the choices are the on the food... More

This place was hard to find, but once there the staff were efficient, friendly and professional. Rooms are quite small, but comfortable and clean. Ideal for a early morning flight, and staff organised a taxi with out a hitch.

Very good, we stayed our first night and we stayed again a second night. Helpful staff, the first night the restaurant was closed (around 21:00, but understandable) but they provide us hot water which was very helpful. The only bad thing is that the walls are thin and the second night we could hear a baby crying and a couple... More

It's hard to quanitfy, but I was spooked. Hardly slept. There was just a sheet on the bottom of the bed and a light 'blanket' - the blanket was making me itchy but I had to pay (50 pesos, so it was nothing!) to get another sheet. Bare bones, looked clean tho - staff were friendly enough. The area and... More

The hotels lobby is modern and attractive, they have a very nice 'cafe' attached to the hotel with reasonable price food and drink I paid 1200 ish and stayed with my... More

Traveled to cebu last oct. 2013 and stayed in this budget hotel for 2 days because it is near SM and the bus terminal. There is an elevator for going up and down the different floors. We stayed at the third floor (with a queen sized bed) floor in front of the street and you can hear the noise coming... More

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times already. Very ideally located because it is just walking distance to SM and there is a 24 hour eatery beside it. The rooms are typical of budget hotels - just a place to sleep with basic amenities (hot shower with soap and shampoo). Wifi is spotty but you get better signal if... More
