Dumaguete hotels and hostels
Island’S Leisure Hotel Dumaguete
Honeycomb Tourist Inn
This place has cheap and flimsy-looking beds on drab motel carpet, but is pretty good value for its location on Rizal Blvd.
Ok Pensionne House
A little out of the way, this run-down place is just what it says it is: OK. It has an enormous variety of rooms – the more expensive (and up) are a big step up from the cheapies in terms of quality.
Dirt cheap, with an emphasis on dirt. Opposite the market, this is a safe and central budget option if you don’t mind roughing it a bit.
Harold’S Mansion Tourist Inn
Hands down our favourite place in town for its fun atmosphere and professional management. It has clean, well-priced rooms and wi-fi in the cafe area.
Plaza Maria Luisa
Overlooking the attractive Quezon Park, this well-located business hotel is often full. The staff here are both polite and very helpful, though the fawn and mint-green colour scheme looks like it was inspired by an ice cream.
In the middle of the action, bright and cheerful Palwa has neat pastel-coloured rooms at great value, with tea and coffee making facilities, cable TV and hot water. There is an in-house travel agency. Free wi-fi available.
Coco Grande Hotel
Sister hotel to the popular Coco Grove on Siquijor, this place is run by brisk, professional staff. The large rooms have stone and parquetry floors, a fridge, cable TV, wicker furniture, and tea and coffee making facilities.
La Residencia Al Mar
An olde-worlde reproduction of a Spanish hacienda, replete with oil paintings in the style of Fernando Amorsolo, a wide wooden staircase and pots overflowing with ferns. The rooms have solid wooden floors and naff colonial-style decor.
