I ahve stayed here a number of times when visiting Cebu. This hotel is tucked away in a side street in Mabolo but every taxi driver knows it. It is within easy walking distance of SM Mall (10 minutes) and if you feel energetic you could also walk to Ayala Mall but taxi fare is only 50 pesos or so. Getting there from Mactan Airport will only cost you about 160 pesos.

The rooms are homely but clean and comfortable. CRs are good with instant hot water. Aircon works well. WiFi works and has good throughput. Dick Dunlop and his loyal staff are approachable and friendly. Western style food is readily available. A excellent large beef burger is only 145 pesos. Don't know what the cook puts in it but it tasks real good! SM Light is 55 pesos.

This hotel will not be for those who wish for a top of the line Western-style hotel experience but for those travelers looking for value for money and a friendly clean hotel, this is the place to go.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newer rooms.

Kiwilodge may have a big difference with all those other fancy hotels in Cebu, but that difference is what makes it better.you may be quite far from where you came, but here there's nothing to worry about,because it has all the thing you need at a high standard like good food , comfortable bed , and a clean CR . I would really suggest people , especially those new to Cebu to come here at kiwi lodge hotel,because not only the surroundings are nice the employees are friendly as well

I usually stay in the KiwiLodge when I am in Cebu. Although it is not very smart in appearance, you could even call it scruffy, the owners understand what westerners like, so it has lots of advantages compared to many Filipino-run hotels:
- The service is generally quick and helpful
- The food appeals to western tastes with favourites such as fish and chips, steaks, roast dinners, good burgers and pies and proper English/American-style breakfasts
- There is a bar (with pool table) popular with expats
It also has a convenient location, between the main Ayala and SM malls. (I often walk to SM).
The rooms are unpretentious but a reasonable size, with the usual facilities – aircon, cable tv and many with fridge/mini-bar. Free wifi is available in the public areas and reaches some but not all the rooms. There is no lift.
Perhaps it will not appeal to those looking for luxury or fashionable styling but I recommend it to those who seek simple comforts and friendly service.

Room Tip: Wifi reaches some rooms (I think mainly the newer ones) but not all, so ask for that if it is important to you.

Yes we agree it is a little scruffy at the moment, but there has been a lot of political nonsense going on which still may require us to change a staircase and as soon as that is resolved we will be painting asap.
Thanks for your review

not correct , dont respect the price its write one price but when its time to pay the cashier say you its 10 % more expensive, new roles from the manager !!!!
the food is overpriced, in the standard room the bed is small for two people...no wifi in the room you must stay in the bar, depending on the room sometimes very noisy, very limited comfort, you can find easaly a hotel near this location, less expensive, clean, quite and honest.

Customer is clearly upset about something.
Prices stated are exactly that.
I do not know who this person is otherwise I would contact and see what the problem is.
