i stayed at kiwi for 9 days in March/April. I found the staff absolutely fantastic, thank you Ralph for your friendship and help. The food was well priced and delicious. The room was basic, but was a standard room anyway, i walked in from the street. They must pick from the most beautiful girls in Cebu, because the girls behind... More

I've stayed here several times over the last few years using it as a base for onward travel from Cebu. The hotel is secure and located close to port ferries and city centre. The rates are reasonable and the staff are very helpful. The plumbing is a bit hit and miss but once you accept that its a fine place... More

I stayed in the newer room. This is a decent place if you get one of the newer rooms. If I had to criticize i would say: They kind of cheaped out with their choice of LCD TVs and toilets. I had to ask for toilet paper a few times since they only cleaned up my room once in the... More

Was a bit underwhelmed when I checked into my "new" deluxe room, as the plumbing fitting has already seen better days and there was a good deal of mould on the bathroon ceiling. Small, but annoying oversights included a broken TV remote, mineral water in fridge was frozen solid, there was not 1 glass in the room etc. These things... More

Staid here 10 days, and enjoyed the food and the company of the expats who use the bar and restaurant (great fish and chips). Rooms are simple and clean.

I reviewed this place last time I stayed here in 2009 and wanted to give it a visit again after I left my apartment in Mactan. Kiwi is great for budget travelers. Good reliable and fast Internet with fair rooms. The newer rooms are far superior to the old ones which are marginal at best. That said, I am always... More
