    Excellent New Hotel in Downtown Cebu”

    Southpole Central Hotel is an incredibly new hotel in the heart of Cebu City. When I asked taxi drivers to get here, the best bet is to tell them that you're going to Junquera street and add that it is located just across University of San Carlos. Next to it is a 7-Eleven. The hotel itself was still under construction. During our stay, we could definitely hear construction work on the upper levels, but it wasn't loud and distracting. The washroom was incredibly well-built, but the shower was not separated by a shower door. This makes the whole washroom floor wet after someone takes a bath and some people may find this disgusting. The redeeming part of this hotel is the bed and the excellent airconditioning. Also, the hotel provides its patrons with a nifty list of channels for their TV. In terms of acoustic insulation, I could definitely hear people talking in the hallway and sometimes from the room next to us. This really isn't a problem for me, but some people may find this offputting.

    Southpole Central has high standard even in European terms (which wasn't really true for other similarly priced and rated hotels in Cebu city, as we later found out), has great location to explore the city, has friendly and helpfull staff, and offers good enough breakfast (awesome, if counted by Philippines standards.

    Nice staff, great location , clean room”

    My third time of the last 4months travelling in Cebu and this was my second time to stay in Southpole . very nice staff , room with a double bed and a single bed was clean and well equipped . 7-11 is just at downstairs and there are 2 malls nearby(walk out of the front door, turn left , walk straight for 200m , malls are on your right side ,btw joliebee there as well ). you can exchange money in the mall, the USD rate was much much much better than that at the airport . White taxi from the airport to the hotel by meter was 200P. The diver tried to charge me 400P cuz he said he needed to drive back to the airport but it was a BIG LIE, be careful about that this happens a lot here , drivers always try to charge the tourists double or even more no matter taxi or motorbike or tricycle . Highly recommend this hotel and I will definitely stay again .

    Great Hotel to stay in!”

    All of things inside the hotel are fantastic. Location: Good, it's just around south part of Cebu City, near to SM Cebu City, Robinsons Galleria and SM Seaside. Rates: It's somehow pricey since it's just a regular room, nothing special. Security: They have 24/7 security. CCTV equipment are installed. They also have parking at the basement. Internet Connectivity: No issue with their wireless connection. It's fast and stable. Other amenities: They have laundry service that needs 3 KG minimum for 90Pesos. So even the weight of your laundry is just half kilo, it will still cost 90Pesos. Then another 100Pesos if you want to have your clothes pressed. The only thing that I don't like in my stay is the shower. It's already rusty and the shower head drips intermittently. But over all, it's a 8.5/10 for me :)

    I love how this hotel is located very strategically in Cebu City! The staff are also very helpful and friendly. Staying at Southpole gives value for your money. I can only suggest that they change their towels as they are already quite old and think from use. I am not sure if this was just one off but it will be added value if the towels are fresh looking.

    Very accessible to public transportation. Right at the heart of the city. Staff was welcoming. Breakfast was buffet and food was good which we didn’t expect with the amount we paid. They are just strict with early check in which starts at 2pm or if room is already available you’ll pay extra 500 php for every hour. I wish that every room has refrigerator, ours doesn’t have. I wish that they had shower curtains and rug at the bathroom which leaves the bathroom wet. Will definitely recommend Southpole Central Hotel to friends and we will definitely stay here again when we go back to Cebu.

    The location of the hotel is not that bad”

    I have read so many reviews about this hotel before I booked my own stay and it was good except that the location wasn't. The Hotel is close to USC Downtown Campus and the famous Colon and Carbon are only walking distance from the hotel. Personally, I did not have a problem with the location but that is because I have lived in the area for quite sometime and it's not really as bad as how people say it is. The hotel staff were so nice and welcoming. They were very helpful and always offer to assist. The internet connection was so fast! I wish all hotels in Cebu will have that kind of connection. The only thing that I did not like there are the following: - I checked in at around 2pm but the hallway was dark. The staff said the person in charge must have forgotten to turn it on. - The towels are not soft and they are already old looking.

    First in the location, it’s very accommodating since some of the city tours are walking distance. Second the room (bed and bath) very comfortable to use but it’s not overlooking in the window - we were stayed in 6 floor. Overall, I think this is one of the best hotel to stay along Cebu city. We’ve been stayed for 2 days and we’ve enjoyed the walking distance tour especially food in the city.

    Booked this hotel on my second visit to Cebu. It is located centrally. Staff appears friendly. Room has basic amenities you need for a comfortable stay. We had free breakfast and wi-fi on our stay. It is very good for the value of money we paid as a group of 3 people ( 2 adult and one teen). The hotel is just next to the van terminal. This public transportation will take you straight to other tourist destinations in Cebu like Simala and Oslob at a very affordable price. Will definitely stay again.

    The hotel was very adequate for the price. Because there was no hot water, we received free breakfast vouchers. Also we had to leave very early in the morning, so the staff kindly packed our breakfast as takeaway. The staff were very helpful with our luggage and finding transportation, definitely a great staff! My only complaint is not about the hotel, but the ridiculous jaywalking patrol in Cebu city.

    Superb helpful staff, excellent!”

    Everything was perfect. The hotel was new and clean. We chose here because it was close to Colon Street and just 15-20 mins walk to South Bus Terminal, where we took a bus heading to Moalboal. We were offered all necessities like shower gel, towels, and even toothbrushes, which are not commonly provided in budget hotels. With a 24 hour security guard and only key card holders could access the lifts, which we felt very safe. And most importantly, we were always welcomed by staff with a big smile on their faces, extremely helpful and no one asked for tips (which were fairly common in Philippines if you are a tourist). I would like to give a special thanks to the staff who took the night shift on 2017-4-7 night until 2017-4-8 morning. It was first a young man and later a young lady, who took care of our boarding passes problem. The lady (sorry Miss I didn't check your name tag) was super kind and helpful, and patiently helped us to print out the boarding passes, got hot water for our cup noodles, and made sure everything was fine. Honestly I didn't expected I would experience this 5-star service in a budget hotel. Value for money, and definitely would come back here in my next journey to Cebu.

    The staff are gracious and accommodating and reachable. The room is big and clean, with cable TV, and an armchair in the desktop and a lot of wall sockets for all the gadget I brought along and room light can also be control at the top of the bed headboard. For Transportation can be had in front of the hotel and walking distance to a mall, supermarket and fast food chains, bakeries, fruit stands, church and University's. For travel away from Cebu City there is a bus terminal just a stone throw away from the hotel, almost all are within reach. The hotel restaurant is mediocre and expensive on food that they serve, the hotel has an underground garage that serve their clients and the hotel is empicable clean and secure in and out.
