Since Iloilo is a favorite vacation place for many, it offers a wide array of choices for accommodation, from backpackers to honeymooners you can find the right accommodation that fits your budget.

If you are on a tight budget, you can stay in an inn or a pension house. The Riverside Inn offers clean and decent rooms for as low as $14 a night. On the other hand, if you want to splurge a bit, you can go to Iloilo’s most popular hotel destination which is the Sarabia Manor. It comes complete with an Italian restaurant, a Bar Lounge, an American Bar, a Seafood restaurant and much more. The rates start at $53 which is a little steep for a hotel in this country but hey, if you are on a vacation and you want to enjoy a few luxuries, then this should not be a problem for you.

Since Iloilo is such a nice city, filled with people and establishments that are very eager to be of service to tourists, you will rarely find a hotel, inn or pension house that is not worth what you are paying them for, although it may be best to make sure you research on them first before booking. Some hotels have very high rates so you might want to haggle a bit for you to get better rates.

Iloilo is well-known for its mouth-watering food specialties such as the famous La Paz batchoy- a local noodle soup. It can be found in virtually all of the restaurants in the city but you might want to have a bowl or two at Ted’s. This restaurant chain are found in General Luna and Diversion Road, you can also see them at La Sallet Building in Valeria Street, in a popular mall- Robinson’s Place, and at the Arguelles Building, in Jaro Plaza.

Another favorite would be the Kansi, which is bone marrow soup. The best place to go for this meal would be Pat-Pat’s on E. Lopez St, Jaro. After you have savored the La Paz batchoy and the Kansi, your gastronomical enjoyment does not end there. It is worth stopping by Breakthrough- a seafood place in Villa where you can buy lobsters for as cheap as $4. Breakthrough is about 10 minutes away from the city, if you are taking a cab. Eat to your heart’s desire and it will not even burn a tiny hole in your pocket.
