“last destination! ( quite good)”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

for my last trip and last destination for business trip, i went to cebu, the cebu northwinds hotel is somehow comfortable and good, it is one the cheapest check in hotel in cebu, the place around cebu is so amazing, just a litle bit improvement to the hotel and its all perfect, while in cebu i became more busy to work, sleep work and outiside meetings. the room is neat a typical room in philippines.

This is typical your budget hotel. If you are looking for a relatively cheaper and average type of hotel, then this is certainly your choice. It is near IT Park and Ayala terraces.

Food choices are also available nearby and they are just a stones throw away.

Like previous reviews, we can certainly vouch for the fact that the Northwinds Hotel is indeed a budget hotel . What the hotel lacks in up-to-date modern rooms, facilities and amenities are far outweighed by its central location to everything in Cebu City, combined with super-friendly helpful staff. If you're on a tight budget, after something central and only looking for a place to lay your head at night after being out all day, this hotel's the one for you.

The room was clean although within a few hours I had become sick from the air conditioning. Like many hotels around Cebu and other parts of the Philippines sanitation and cleanliness isn't as good as it could be. I recommend a bit of washing up liquid and a good detergent sprayed from a bottle regularly as well as regular maintenance.

Anyway food was ok and although the location isn't exactly fantastic with facilities it is in easy access to Cebu city.

I won't use the hotel again simply because it has no facilities that stand out to make you want to stay there. It reminded me more of a conference type hotel rather than one for a vacation.

I'm in here right now with my aunt, uncle and cousin. The place is fine. The front view of the hotel looks good but not really in the inside. Their lobby has no sofa to sit on nor chairs. You gotta have to stand while waiting if someones else is already talking to the receptionist. PLEASE HAVE SOMETHING TO SIT ON.

Their receptionist are not too friendly. I had a bad experience and inconvenience with our reservation. While we are enjoying strolling around the city, I got a message asking me what time should we check out for the room is booked for another person. Ridiculous! I booked the room first. lol. I told the lady how inconvenient it is and that she has to do something. After exchanging text messages the lady just said sorry and that someone has canceled. Very Bad service.

Good thing there's internet. :)

Room Tip: pay ahead in full to make sure you have a room to stay

If you are traveling on a budget, this might be a good choice for you as the hotel rate is rather low and it is situated along the main road. I.T. park is walking distance away where you can find food like Macdonalds.

I stayed here during my last day in Cebu before I fly back to Singapore. And this hotel is rather clean and all the amenities are working fine. No problem staying here at all.

My wife's family are from Leyte and whenever we travel to see them, we stop over a few nights in Cebu city at both ends of our trip. We have tried several hotels in Cebu City over the years and frankly none offer the value that Northwinds does.

Ok, it's not plush and has no real "wow" factor, and if you quadruple your budget you can find a hotel that does. Its a bit old and dated inside but so what? It's clean and comfy, great value and great location!

Firstly, the rates. It varies, but we have never paid more than P1500 (exc breakfast) for a standard room (all aircon) and this can be reserved via email, website or phone.

Standard rooms are the ones to go for (deluxe adds a bathtub, exec adds an additional single bed etc and a larger room) but all are of the same finish. The rooms are big enough, aircon always works (and quiet) the bed is good (and with clean linen) and we have always had hot water. TV reception is ok and the ref in the room is always well stocked. Free safety deposit boxes in reception too if there's not one in your room. My only gripe is that there is never a plug in the sink in the bathroom - we just bring one with us now!

From the cleaning ladies, front desk staff to Denis the security guard, all the staff are always really friendly, helpful and polite. And they are there 24/7 if you need them.

The restaurant is really a cafe serving tasty (if a bit basic) fare, but does excellent brewed coffee. There is wifi in the hotel, but not in all rooms. Best to log on in the cafe or reception.

Location of Northwinds is really good. 20mins in a taxi from the airport (just ask the driver for Waterfront Hotel and its 100m further up on the left opposite the Chikka Ann restaurant), or 5 mins in a taxi from the Port. Taxis are plentiful right outside the door 24/7. SM Mall is literally just down the road and Ayala Mall is 10mins in a taxi. There is a great Filipino restaurant next door (the Golden Cowrie) and a 24hr convenience store and ATM just 2 minutes walk. The new IT park is a few minutes walk with a good McDonalds (free wifi) plus several nice restaurants including the Mooon Cafe, which serves great Mexican.

We love this place, for us it's the best place to stay in Cebu City, and a bargain at under £20 a night!
