The summer heat in Manila is sometimes intolerable. Whenever I think of a place that can beat the heat, Baguio City comes first in my mind. Dubbed as the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio remains to be one of the top destinations.
If you’re also planning to escape to the City of Pines on a summer weekend, join me in looking for the best hotel deal in Baguio using my new favorite booking app, Traveloka App.
I can say that Traveloka is a one-stop travel booking app for domestic and international hotel and flights. It has over 10 million downloads so I think that says a lot for its reliability.
So, what do I usually consider in booking my accommodation and why did I choose to use Traveloka app?
Budget is the most important for me. When I’m traveling alone, I’m fine with staying in a cheap hostel, but when I’m with my family, I book a mid-end hotel. I rarely treat my family to a vacation, so I believe, we all deserve a quality place to stay in. If you’re traveling with friends, booking a mid- to high-end hotel won’t be a problem since you can all share the expenses.
Since I’m planning to take my family to Baguio by the end of the month, let’s take a look at the best value hotels in the city. I normally budget P3,000 to P5,000 per night when I travel with my family.
Using Traveloka’s Sort and Filter option, I can easily choose hotels that fit my budget. But, wait there’s more. Did you know that Traveloka offers discounts? You can save a lot using their special promo code. To check out their no hidden charges and ongoing promos, click this link.
The location is of equal importance. Some hotels are incredibly cheap, which excites us, only to find out that it’s in the middle of nowhere. We end up paying more because of transportation expenses and the hassle of it.
So, in choosing a hotel, always consider the location. Is it at the center? Is public transportation accessible? How far is it from tourist spots you want to visit?
Gladly, Traveloka App instantly shows the address of the available hotels within my budget. This feature gives me an idea about their location. If you’re not familiar with the place, open “Maps” from the app and it will show you your choice’s exact location.
Also, if you click on a specific hotel, it will show the distance of popular attractions in the area–a big help in planning your itinerary.
So, what can make me change my mind when I already have a choice? Customer feedback. It pays to read people’s reviews to have an idea about what kind of service, or experience you can expect.
Good thing, Tripadvisor is integrated into Traveloka App. Reviews from people who booked using Traveloka App can be found on this portion. Isn’t it amazing? I really encourage people to leave honest feedback, because you could help in making, or breaking someone’s vacation.
After looking at a price that fits my budget, good location, and good customer feedback, what are the best hotels in Baguio that I suggest you book using Traveloka App?
