In the Philippines, they name Bacolod City as the “City of Smiles.” It is the city capital of Negros Occidental in the Visayas Region. You can reach this city via plane or ship from Manila. It’ll take you an hour to reach Bacolod via air (Cebu Pacific or Philippine Airlines), and 20 hours via ship (2GO).
Bacolod City is the home of the world-famous Masskara Festival, which is held every October 1 to 20. Several local and international tourists are visiting Bacolod not just for the annual festival, but they want to see famous attractions like the historic San Sebastian Cathedral, Campuestohan Resort, The Ruins, and so much more. However, considering that most of the travelers have limited budget, they’re looking for hotels that are cheap and affordable.
Without further ado, here are the five budget hotels that you can afford while taking a vacation in Bacolod City:
The Pension Bacolod and Restaurant
To be honest, this is the cheapest hotel in Bacolod City. The hotel itself is at Cuadra Street in Bacolod Downtown. The Pension Bacolod and Restaurant Hotel has 88 elegant guest rooms in total. Each of these rooms has air conditioning, shower, desk, refrigerator and a non-smoking room. Not only that, they have other recreational stuff like massage service. The price of each room starts from P100 ($1.98) to P270 ($5.34).
The Bascon Hotel
Another cheap hotel that I would like to recommend is the Bascon Hotel. A former owner of the defunct basketball team Negros Slashers, this hotel has 22 guest rooms with great peaceful ambiance. You can find this hotel at Gonzaga-Locsin Sts., within the city. For a low price of P400 ($7.91) per night with recreational facilities, this is an ideal place for you to stay.
The Regency Plaza Tourist Inn
If you are on a tight budget for high-quality guest rooms, you need to check out this hotel. Aside from excellent guest rooms around the corner, recreational facilities like jacuzzi and garden are something you should look forward to checking it out. It’s a perfect place for you to rest after roaming around the city. You can find this hotel within Lacson Moran Sts, and the price starts at P605.00 ($11.96) per night.
The Casa Marabella
As much as I like other ones, this hotel is something you can’t miss out. From here, it’s easy for you to reach places such as the Negros Museum, Gazebo Park and the Doctor’s Hospital with one jeepney ride. The lowest price of Casa Marabella starts at P650 ($12.85) per night that gives you an easy all-access to its amenities. If you are looking for a cheap version of luxurious rooms, this hotel is where you want to be.
The MO2 Days Inn
Lastly, the MO2 Days Inn is an affordable hotel that you can probably stay for a while. Locals and international travelers have all access to beautiful guest rooms and recreational facilities. They have an economy, standard and deluxe rooms for guests to choose. You will only pay P700 ($13.84) per night for an economy room, P888 ($17.56) for standard rooms, and P998 ($19.74) for deluxe rooms. The MO2 Days Inn is within the commercial complex of Goldenfields.
