Hotels Near The Bus Terminals in Cebu City

Not everyone uses Google, Apple, or Windows Maps and there might be over a hundred hotels to choose from in Cebu. Unlike most people who are already used to the apps that I mentioned, some still rely on good ol’ Google search whenever they have questions of where the nearest hotels to a certain place are located. And one of the usual inquiries that I used to get before in my emails was which hotels are nearest to the Cebu North Bus Terminal and Cebu South Bus Terminal.

Cebu is a big city and I understand why people would prefer staying near the bus terminals, I would too if I was new in Cebu. In fact, the first hotel I stayed in was just less than a kilometer away from the South Bus Terminal. Personally, it provided a small sense of relief that ‘my way home’ was just a few minutes from where I was staying. Also, if you are a tourist and you have connecting trips to other towns in Cebu, being near the bus terminal is quite convenient.

So for would-be travelers, here is the list of hotels in Cebu near the two bus terminals. I will also be providing the estimated distance and Google rating of each hotel.

Choosing the right hotel

This is totally up to you! Do you want to stay in a hotel beside a road that is bustling with life? Or a place that’s quieter? Do you prefer something cheap or do you want to enjoy a luxurious stay? If you’re asking me, then I would suggest choosing a hotel that is near malls and accessible to jeepneys, which is the number one mode of public transportation in Cebu. It goes without saying that being close to a mall or a supermarket allows you to conveniently purchase goods without the need to loiter far from your hotel.

Another preference of mine are hotels that have an excellent/great view of the city. Whenever I am able to stay in a high-building hotel, I would always ask for a window room in one of the higher floors. I just like to see and appreciate everything from a ‘bird’s eye’ perspective.

Hotels with a great view of the city and near malls:

So those are the hotels near the two bus terminals in Cebu. There are more but I decided to only list those for now. If you have questions like which jeepney to ride to get to the hotel, please feel free to ask in the comment section or contact me directly.
