Baguio: Where to stay?

There are a lot of places where you can stay in Baguio City. All you need to do is find the right one that will suit your needs and your BUDGET.

There are the Hotels, Inns, Pension Houses, condominiums, apartments, and Transients.

Baguio Hotels

For new travelers, transients may be a new word. Its like a boarding house where you will only get a private room but share the kitchen and living room with other people. Its cheaper and more economical specially for visitors who will just use it for sleeping and to put their things in a place.

The BASIC lodging requirements are the following:

  • Bed
  • TV
  • Comfort room
  • Bath room

Most rooms in lodging places in Baguio doesn’t have Aircondition Units (Aircon). Who would need one in a cold place like this? =p

Whatever accommodation or lodging that you choose, get one that is near the town proper , Burnham park, or Session Road. As they say, its where the action is!

Here is a list of lodging places – that I know – which is near Burnham Park.

  • Inn Rocio

Inn Rocio (pronounced as IN RO-SI-YO) is an old place. They have old rooms. Even the front desk is aging literally and figuratively. But they have a nice view of the City. When i checked one of their rooms I was surprised to find out that there was no bath room, only a rest room inside. I guess you have to take a shower outside or in another area.

  • Burnham View

baguio-Hotels008

I didn’t check the Burnham View condos. But its near Inn Rocio.

  • City Travel Hotel

This is where we stayed. I’ll be making a separate post for this one.

  • Burnham Suites

I guess this is a very expensive hotel. The lobby was very nice!

  • Paladin

baguio-Hotels003

I had a bad experience with this hotel. Check it here. Checked it again and its still the same… Looks nice on the outside but bad on the inside.

  • Kisad Hotel

This is where you will stay if you are visiting Baguio in groups. They have cheap rooms that is good for four to six persons. The rooms looks old but for sure it will suit the budget and the BASIC lodging needs.

  • Venus Parkview Hotel

baguio-Hotels005

I think the rooms are nice. Only checked with the front desk, standard room (double) = P1,650. Price is cheaper than City Travel. Next time i’ll try it.

  • Golden Pine

baguio-Hotels001

Didin’t check out this hotel. We just passed this by.

  • Ina Mansion

A condotel.

  • Benguet Pine Tourist Inn

Looks old. Its beside a parking area for public utility vehicles. Didn’t check the rates.

Some places near Session Road and SM Baguio are:

  • Hotel Veniz

This is a nice hotel. Cheap but elegant. For only P1,000.00+ you get a nice room (without Aircondition). A room good for two would only cost you P1,300.00. That’s during off-season. You would have to add P400.00 to P600.00 during holidays. Also, it is strategically situated beside Burnham park and at the foot of Session Road.

Hotel Veniz is one of the Best hotels in Baguio.

  • Hotel 45

baguio-Hotels006

A low cost lodging place. The place is cheap so don’t expect much amenities and good stuff. But it will suit your BASIC lodging needs.

  • Bloomfield Hotel

Aside from having high rates this is also one of those hotels with bad Customer Service. A standard room would cost you P1,780.00 but if you add P210.00, you’ll get to have breakfast for 2. When we inquired about their rates, we felt that we were not welcome. The lady at the front desk that time (good thing for you i didn’t take a picture) handed us the brochure and said that they didn’t have any available room.

So in front of her, i called up City Travel Hotel using my cellphone and made a reservation. Then we left!

Other Hotels that I have seen (just passed by):

  • Supreme Hotel is far from the town proper. But its near the Bell Church (Chinese temple) and Strawberry farm.
  • The expensive but elegant Microtel suites is just beside the Victory Bus terminal.

  • f

There are other lodging places at the parallel street – Legarda Road.

I don’t know any transient houses and i haven’t tried using one. But I know some friends who have used it and they say its ok.

NOTE: Rates mentioned herein are as of January 2008.

  16. Thanks for the info. Very useful.

  17. This is a very very useful post especially for someone like me. I am not really experienced in travelling on my own to far-away places. I wanted to try Baguio and one of the biggest problems is where to stay. This post makes it a lot easier. I just hope the prices did not increase to much.🙂

  18. I don’t agree with Giselle, Ina Mansion is a nice place.

  19. What a great blog!

    Quick question everyone… everytime I travel abroad, i’m used to making hotel reservation online… I’m wondering if its wise to do the same in Baguio? or should i just drive there and just walk in to any hotel i feel like staying? The thing is Tripadvisor is saying how great Bloomfield hotel is and this blog is saying otherwise so I’m torn in between. Thank you guys…

  20. Hi mike.

    Thanks for dropping by.

    In fairness to Bloomfield Hotel, we did not see the rooms. And maybe the receptionist was just busy that time or pissed off with someone or on something.

    If those in trip advisor says its a good place then i suggest you try it out.😀

  21. No worries, migs
    I got it, thanks!
    but my question remains, is it wise to book online or just walk in say I travel on Friday this week? I just want to learn from others exprience🙂
    Btw, between microtel, Elizabeth hotel, and burnham suite, which one do you recommend & why? Sorry for sounding like a peagent question🙂
    Sorry for sounding
    Thanks!

  22. Hi Mike,

    Booking online is great if you will go there during peak season – February, march, april, may, November, december – then you need to book online to avoild not having a place to stay. But during other months (off-peak seasons) you can just go to baguio and book your hotel right then and there. You can also ask for an off peak discount. You can go there this friday and still have an available room for you.😀

    I can recommend a hotel for you if you’ll tell me what you want in one. wifi, close to city proper, not crowded, ambiance, etc.😀

  23. got yah, sounds good!

    well thanks, your recommendation would be nice, i could use it… how about a hotel close to city proper, wifi would be nice, definitly not smelly, fine ambiance, and safe parking space is a must…

    Thanks again, migs!
