My concern is we had killed 4 small cockroaches so it feels like the room was not clean, also we were not provided Bath Towel at first, we called room service and they explained that there's no available bath towel and it will be available at 4:00 in the next morning.

                Just ok hotelStaff are polite and helpful. Location is also good, very central to everything. It took time to check in as they cant find our booking in their system despite giving them the booking reference from Agoda. So we needed to leave our things with them which they accepted. Thankfully, they found the booking when we got back at night. Room was clean and well maintained, but the toilet is very small, and drainage is inefficient, so it floods when u take shower and there is no towel / mat to dry the floor. No bidet and rubbish bin in the toilet too.

No hair dryer for the entire hotel. And the worst thing is that we believe that this is not the first time that they encounter tourist whos rushing to experience their booked tours, and availing their complimentary breakfast around 4am instead of 6am. But at first we asked them what can we do to have the inclusion in our booked hotel breakfast since its too early and no complimentary water. They cant do it as per the frontdesk of 10pm and GY shift. In the morningthe following day we ask the dining staff if what can we do regarding with that, they suggested to ask the stab and they do it then we can pickup the food at the front desk after they closed the cafe. How come the front desk agents doesnt anticipate those scenario. To the point we need to ask for manager

                We booked 2 superior rooms, both rooms are full of cockroaches. We will never book at this inn again. Location is good but due to the 0 cleanliness of this inn, nope. Another thing, they said breakfast starts at 6am, we had our schedule planned already but we had to wait until 7am for the breakfast. Very bad experience on this hotel.

                Location and price make it worthwhile. Basic breakfast. Even on the 4th level traffic noise fills room.. In room table made of solid materials but wobbly base and vertical stem together render it nigh unusable.. Still nice and close to SM City, which includes the major bus station and nearby North bus station.

                Dirty, full of cockroaches and mosquitoes. WORST HOTEL ”

                The only good thing about this hotel is its location. That’s it. I stayed here for two days. My room is full of mosquitoes and cockroaches. I asked the staff/CS for me to be transfered to other room. I waited for two hours just for me to know that it’s possible. The following day, before I left the hotel I asked the receptionist to fumigate and make my room. When I went back to my room at night. I was surprised because NOTHING HAPPNED. They didnt even change my towel, bedshheet or fix my room. I’am so disappointed. Will never book in this hotel again. WORST HOTEL EVER!!!!

                I loved Express inn”

                This was a great stay. In fact we are going to be staying another 4 nights at the end of the month. This is a perfect location in a safe neighborhood. The staff is friendly,and building is nice. Great bed to sleep in after a long trip. The lock on the door makes it safe and secure to sleep at night. The traffic noise isnt too bad, but if you dont like traffic then try see about a room in a different part of the hotel

                Place is basic”

                Place is basic. Need to request for housekeeping if you wish to have your room cleaned. Items listed as provided in the room is not available and you even have to pay more to have them. There’s a weird noise around 8pm onwards which mkes it difficult to sleep. Tv has no remote. Breakfast is ok but only 3-4 choices. Walls are paper thin you can literally hear if there are people in the hall. Poor service from staff maybe because they are overworked. Good thing: hot shower

                Best location if you are travelling to Northern Cebu. We made a reservation for 4 in Agoda but staffs told us the room is only for 3 and they demanded us to pay extra. They need to fix their online booking system.

                Great for a quick stay! ”

                We only stayed here one night as we missed our boat to Bohol due to a flight being delayed. The room was reasonable and very simple. The shower had great water pressure and the wifi/aircon worked perfectly. If your wanting to stay somewhere long term in Cebu city I would look elsewhere preferable for somewhere with a pool as it’s quite hot and muggy. Great accommodation for only a night or two!

                Clumsy as i am, i left my wallet on the front desk the night before. Luckily, it was returned to me in 1 piece the next morning. Forget about the details. To make it short, im so grateful to the lady staff and of course to the hotel management for training them so well. Thank you.

                Basic amenities. Good for less than a day stay. There's a pharmacy within the same building. Andok's Chicken (for quick meals), a famous Filipino chicken house, is right next door open for 24 hours. Taxis and jeepneys are plentiful anytime .
