Looking for top-rated and budget-friendly hotels in Cebu City? We have carefully selected the 10 Best Budget Hotels in Cebu City to help you have a wonderful stay without breaking the bank.

Among those you need to prepare ahead of time for your trip is your hotel or where you’ll stay. Your hotel is just as important as your flight ticket, itinerary, and the activities you will do at your destination. 

However, it is understandable that you might not want to shell out most of your budget only for your accommodation—such as luxury hotels—leaving you with little for the activities you wish to partake in. At the same time, you also don’t want to be sleeping uncomfortably after a day filled with sightseeing and tours. 

This is why we created this guide for you. As you explore the Queen City of the South, you can find a lot of hotels that can give you the comfort you are looking for without breaking the bank.

Criteria for Choosing the Best Hotels

Our hotel recommendations are based on our personal experience. We also take into account factors such as:

  • Location. Is it accessible to basic services?
  • Internet. Is it fast enough to get some work done?
  • Price. Is it competitive and reasonable?
  • Cleanliness. Is it clean, orderly, and well-maintained?
  • Staff. Is the staff courteous, polite, and accommodating?

We also want to emphasize that real guest experiences were a huge factor when we came up with our recommendations for the best budget hotels in Cebu City. Combining all these criteria, here are our top picks for the best budget hotels in Cebu City:
