Excellent Stay!!!”

I love Uncle Tom's Cabin hotel! I initially booked for 1 night when I arrived in Cebu City and I just wanted a place to rest before going to Bantayan the following morning at 8AM. But before checking out, I decided to book in this same hotel before I fly back to Manila from my 3d2n Bantayan trip. Everything is great here! :) Check-in was fast, the room was great - I booked the single room which is very ideal for a solo traveller like me and I got everything I needed and it was very clean on boths rooms that I stayed, breakfast was included in the room rate, wifi was reliable, staff were friendly, and location is good (although I always booked Uber/Grab since I didn't want to commute), clean towels and toiletries. One recommendation for improvement though if I may suggest... please follow up if it is beyond check out time already :) The receptionist called me at 11:45 to check if I am going to extend my stay, and the housekeeping also knocked my door at 11:48, even if check out time is 12noon. I told them that the I was just checking all my things in the room before I leave and it wasn't 12noon yet. Overall, I am highly satisfied with my stay! I will definitely stay here whenever I am in Cebu. :)

Great value for money; great place to stay”

Flight was delayed and I was dying to rest. Arrived midnight and I was greeted by welcoming staff. Checked-in was quick that I was in my (upgraded) room in no time (check-out was quick as well). Room was neat and tidy not to mention equipped with basic necessities - bottled water, dresser, cabinet, toiletries etc). Bed and pillows are comfy. The aircon was quite noisy but wasn't much of a bother. All staff are attentive and all smiles. Breakfast was a deli. Hotel is walking distance from Fuente Circle. I didn't tour around Cebu and spent most of my time in the hotel. And I didn't mind at all since it was soooo inviting. Vibes is real hotel-ly considering the price. I was able to spend my vacation doing nothing comfortably. Thank you, Uncle Tom's Cabin! Will surely be back :)

Value for Money”

I have stayed in a lot of hotels and inns in Cebu but Uncle Tom's Cabin is so far the best one yet. It's very affordable but the service, rooms, facilities are in the ranks of the expensive hotels. The ambiance is very homey, comfortable and the staff are very accommodating, friendly and courteous. My stay was very comfortable and I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Cebu who want to live in the center of the city yet enjoy the comfort of exclusivity.

Worth every penny”

It's my 4th time that I stayed at Uncle Tom's Cabin and I should say I've seen the changes they've made with their services. What I like about this hotel is the value of your money. It's worth every penny! Rooms are clean, staffs are courteous and the location is quiet and peaceful. I was just a bit disappointed when one staff told me that they don't replenish their complimentary bottled water daily. We stayed for 1 week there so we ended up buying a couple of mineral water. If I may suggest, you can have complimentary bottled water, replenished daily. In addition to that, I also suggest that if your resto is closed already, you can suggest to your clients the options available to them on how to satisfy their hungry tummies. I know it's gonna be an extra mile on your part but you can actually volunteer to order from foodpanda or honestbee. Just my two cents here. Anyways, I'll keep coming back here. It seems my 2nd home already. Be back soon! All the best, Uncle Tom's Hotel!

I sleep comfortably here. And it looks like a 5 star hotel in the inside. Simple but classy. Next time when I go back in Cebu, I won't look for another hotel. I'll comeback here. :)

Great Hotel for its Price”

I usually don't leave reviews even if I'm constantly traveling but I really enjoyed my stay in Uncle Tom's Cabin. Their breakfast was delicious. I always order their bangus plate. For what I paid per night, the breakfast was a bonus! The internet was extremely fast. As a digital nomad, I really appreciate fast internet speed. The only downside was their facilities. The elevator didn't work (twice) and I had to carry my huge luggage from the 5th floor to the ground floor. Some of the staff saw me but instead of helping, they were avoiding me and went the other way which was kind of odd. But otherwise, I had a great stay! Also, one of the guests was in a wheelchair (same floor as me) and he couldn't go down to the ground floor. I hope their elevator worked because when I left, it still wasn't working.

Room: Everything you need for a basic room was there- functioning aircon, cable TV, clean toilet. I was satisfied with my room. Location: There was a 7-11 nearby but everything else was kinda far but commute using Grab & Angkas was easy. So, not a huge problem. Staff: Staff were really friendly and welcoming. Amenities: There’s an in-house restaurant is available. Conclusion: I was very satisfied with my stay at Uncle Tom’s cabin. The hotel is really nice but very affordable and budget friendly. I will definitely book again next time I’m in Cebu City!

Uncle Tom's is the best value hotel in the area - newly built, big rooms, fast WiFi, about a hundred cable channels (including English movies), very clean, and the deal I got included free breakfast. Also, it's on a quiet street so doesn't get any of the busy road noise in crazy Cebu. I recommend and would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for Solo Travellers”

I traveled solo on June 2018 and on my stay in the city, I booked an overnight stay in Uncle Tom's cabin. The place is well-kept and it is stone-throw away from Shamrock so if you're in a rush to buy pasalubong, you can walk for a few minutes and shop your heart out. The room is small but enough for a soloista like me. I have no complaints during my stay here.

Wow! Best Value hotel in town!”

What I loved: 1. PRICE! (I mean omg are you insane? It's like hostel/backpackers/pension house price for a hotel) 2. Wi-Fi - if you stay in Cebu a while you'll realize that fast and reliable internet is very rare in budget hotels. (even in expensive ones) Here it was fast AND reliable. 3. Location - lots of options in the area and short uber anywhere else (or jeep or taxi) Note: it's at the end of a street and newer so Uber or grab is your best bet to make sure the drivers find it) 4. Rooms- tiny for the cheapest ones, but bed is comfy for just sleeping and winding down. Bathroom is good sized with hot water and basics. TV is available and a bit of storage. 5. Free breakfast - for what you pay, anything other than a room is a bonus now. But breakfast is good, several Filipino options and a few american (to those complaining it's limited- it's FREE breakfast at a budget hotel... If you want better food, venture outside for some restaurants or stay at Best Western for 5k a night and buffet) 6. Restaurant area- I didn't eat much at the resto and when I did it wasn't anything special. But the area was great for working. If you are on a business was trip, it is nice to have. 7. Parking- available first come,first served. If you need it, it's there. CONS: As people have said, on the back side rooms there is rampant rooster activity. This never bothered me as I was usually too tired when I got back to sleep. Be prepared, bring earplugs or noise cancelling. They can be very annoying. During my stay, the hallways were fairly quiet but it seems there is a potential to be loud in the peak seasons if more guests are in the hallway talking. Again, bring noise protection! Trust me, you'll need it even if you stay other places usually. Rooster and traffic noises are everywhere. If you temper your expectations, this hotel really is a great little gem. I'm glad I listened to the positive reviews and tried them out. I will be back here now every time I go to Cebu.

Worth Every Penny!”

I’ve been a satisfied costumer since this place was recommended to me by my friend. Uncle Toms Cabin has been my safe haven, it’s location is secured from the hustle streets of Cebu highways. The way to the hotel might be eerie due to lack of street lights but as you go along the hotel you'll find it safe because guards are on-sight from the houses, amazing isn’t it? These houses are owned by rich people. Cleanliness? Once you enter the hotel you’ll smell the freshness and pleasant aroma. Aesthetic wise it is lovely, from floor to ceiling wood design with glass mirrors all over. No doubt the rooms are clean, it varies from small to large bedrooms. The staff are also kind, they will greet you every time with a smile on their faces. You might be disappointed because they have no pool but other than that what do you expect from a 600 to less 2k pesos budget hotel? THEY HAVE FREE BREAKFAST which is amazing! No matter how cheap your room is! What are you waiting for? Check-in now!

Great things about Uncle Tom's: - Very friendly and accommodating staff members! A big plus! - Parking space available for those bringing in their own cars - Quiet location - Room is new and well-kept - Airconditioning is cold - WiFi is very strong! - Food choices are reasonably priced and affordable - In the heart of the city (near Jones, Osmena Blvd..., CDC) Opportunities (things that can still be improved) - Cleaning staff should always include replacement of toilet paper... have to tell them this... - Also water should be replaced daily especially if they see that the bottles have been used up already - Curtain can use more blocking tech specially for some rooms... my 202 room lets some light in... hard to sleep for those who don't like light... - Breakfast menu can introduce more international cuisine vs. tocino or tapa which is too Filipino. Additional items like pancake, fruit cocktail, yogurt may work for some nationalities... - My white clothes turned yellowish after laundry.

Always the best budget hotel in Sugbu!”

I’ve been staying here in Uncle Tom’s more than my fingers and toes can count. 😁 I so love this place since it is very accessible to the city center. Been staying in some hotels here in Cebu but nothing can beat Uncle Tom’s! The price is very affordable that comes with a free breakfast and to tell you, they served delish breakfast from Filipino cuisine to Western cuisine. Staffs are very accommodating and friendly from the Reception, to the Restaurant staffs and even to the Housekeeping. The only thing that is missing is the swimming pool. I hope that one day, they will have this amenity to chill and relax. But still, the hotel is beyond the expectation. Would love to recommend this place to my relatives and friends. 😁

If you need a cheap but value for money place to stay, Uncle Tom's Cabin is the place for that. Clean and well-appointed but basic room. Friendly and accommodating staff We're very thankful that you allowed us to leave our lechon while we go to Bohol. But there were some misunderstanding and minor mishap that costs us our lechon. Unfortunate indeed.

Hi Mr./Ms. Mariedee! I think I remember this. I was informed by the F&B restaurant staff that a guest (going to Bohol) left a lechon to keep. Days after they informed me that the guest did not come back to get it. I informed them to leave it in the freezer as you might get it anytime until we need to discard it out. We hope to be of service to you again soon! Sincerely, Donna

Great Place that carries FOX News Channel (Most other Hotels carry only low rated fake news CNN)”

Although the location may Initially seem a bit of a disappointment to some, as the connotations of the name of the hotel to some Americans ( myself included), the Uncle Tom's Hotel has been one pleasant surprise after another. Brightly lite entrance where taxi can drive you to a Dry entry even in the pouring rain! Helpful staff to Promptly carry your bags. Prompt, Professional Registration Staff Clean, Nicely adorned room with: Thick Mattress Queen Bed, Four nice Pillows, with Soap and Shampoo, & Excellent WIFI All this and a Decent, Fresh Breakfast included with a vegetarian option that was Artistically arranged on the plate, and served in a Lovely, air conditioned dining area adjacent to the air conditioned lobby. I initially put Location at three stars, but am upgrading to four stars because of it's proximity to Robinson's Super Market/Dept. Store (about 750 meters), and just about 350 meters to Wash Day Laundry Mat with same day serv. Wife & I extended our stay twice!

Highly recommended ”

I was in Cebu for 2 nights. The first night, I stayed at Mayflower inn for 790.00/ night. The first room was not good. I almost hurt my nail pushing the flush liver I n the toilet with no water in it. I requested them to transfer me to another room and they did at the second floor. The tv was not working ang there were black ants everywhere. I called their attention but the desk officer told me that they were not using chemicals to get rid of the ants. Terrible. Thanks God I was able to get a room at Uncle Toms Cabin the next day. Well, its cheap but very good accommodation. People were polite and helpful. The room was small but cozy. Breakfast was good. One thing I would suggest is for them to have a bidet in the toilet. Thumbs up. I gave you 9 out of 10.

Awesome stay but needs improvement”

I stayed here for just overnight. The room is nice and clean. The bed is so comfy but the pillow cases are not that smooth. I was told that i can call within cebu but it can't go through. The toilet is also clean but there was no Dental Kit. I had a hard time adjusting the hot shower and tooked me about 4-5 mins to do something bout it because it was too hot already. The TV was okay and i love that they had bottled water ready in the room. The breakfast was amazing! They have fewer selections on their menu but maybe they'll add more in the future. I requested for 2 wake-up calls. But i was only called once. There were noises outside the hall and on top of my room. I don't know if they undergone maintenance by that time, but atleast they should have informed there guest about it. I also noticed that they don't have lobby (near elevator) phones on the 7th floor. To sum it up, I had a great time with Uncle Tom's and hope to stay there again in the future.
