Cheap places to stay in Ilocos, Philippines

It was a spontaneous decision to follow our friends on their trip to Ilocos region. What makes our trip a little bit more interesting was that it is a 4 day long trip, we had a limited budget and little knowledge of the place we are going to. With only few a bucks to spend, here is a list of affordable accommodations we found during our journey.

Location: # 73 Calle Crisologo, Vigan City, Ilocos Sur

Contact Number: 0925 603 2696

Price: P400 per person

WIFI: Available

Mojica Hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from Calle Crisologo. Although the address is in Calle Crisologo, it is not physically in the famous street. It is on the other side and you have to cross streets. We don’t know if we lost or just missed the hotel, good thing that the tourism center in Calle Crisologo knows where is the location exactly.

Our small room has double bed, air condition, TV and a private bathroom.  Bath towels are also provided. Wifi is available in their lobby area but you can still get a weak signal in your room.
