Because I lived in the City of Pines for a while, many people have turned to me for advice on where to stay in Baguio. But honestly, I’m just as clueless as most of you! You can ask me where to live in Baguio, because I’ve hopped from one apartment to another throughout my four years in college. But as for staying in the city for a short vacation, I’m no pro because I only ever crash in my friends’ living rooms when I visit there.

But, don’t leave this article just yet! Although I’m not all-knowing when it comes to accommodations in Baguio, I can still offer some insights on whether a place is worth its price or has a premium location. So after a bit of research and nitpicking, my answers are finally here.

1. This old-school Baguio house perfect for grand reunions

Listing name: 5-Room, 4 Toilet & Bath Baguio House for 16 Guests
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 16+
No. of bedrooms: 5

Many of my memories growing up with my titas and titos are etched with Baguio’s preciously old homes — much like this listing. So if you are seeking the perfect spot for an ultimate family or class reunion, then I can imagine that this is the place for you. With five bedrooms and four bathrooms, this Baguio Airbnb is huge enough for multiple families to gather together. Inside, there is an indoor fireplace and cosy furniture. Outside, there’s a sprawling garden complete with an outdoor grill, a basketball court, a cottage, a wishing well, and a swing. 

The location of this Airbnb isn’t very accessible, but it makes quite an exquisite area for peace, quiet, and privacy. It’s not the place to stay if you want to tour around Baguio for the majority of your time, so I can’t recommend this place for first-timers in the city. But while you won’t have as much access to Session Road, Burnham Park and other famous tourist spots from here, you’ll certainly be able to enjoy your company in the intimacy of this home.

2. This homey cabin by the woods in Camp John Hay

Listing name: Camp John Hay Forest Cabin 16 B101 (ground floor)
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 10
No. of bedrooms: 3

Back in the 20th century, Baguio City was “developed” by Americans under their colonial rule. This is why one of the many facets that distinguish this city from the rest of the country is the heavy presence of American influence.

In particular, Camp John Hay was once a recreational facility for the Americans. Hence, it oozes with Western influences to date. Nowadays, Camp John Hay is known for its food spots, landscape, and architecture that remind tourists that Baguio was, once upon a time, known as “Little America.”

If you want to taste this version of the city, then this forest cabin in Camp John Hay is just where to stay in Baguio. It takes mere minutes of walking to get to restaurants, coffee shops, groceries, golf courses — you name it! Plus, its log cabin style is super reminiscent of the culture of Western camping in the woods. Learn more about this Airbnb here.

3. This cinematic American home for some classic Baguio feels

Listing name: American Heritage Baguio Home w/big Pine tree lawn
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 8
No. of bedrooms: 2

If you’re a movie junkie, you’re probably wondering why this house looks so familiar. This heritage home has made special appearances in multiple films including Honor Thy Father, Citizen Jake, and Glorious. With the charm of this blue-and-white abode, it’s no wonder why.

Built with century-old Baguio pinewood, this listing just screams cosy country chic. Its interiors are just as endearing with the whitewashed walls, floral furnishings, and bay windows. Another accommodation ideal for families, this Baguio Airbnb has a master bedroom, a shared bedroom with bunk beds, and a bedroom that serves as staff quarters. For a warm family night, gather by the bonfire and exchange nostalgic stories. Learn more about this Airbnb here.

Listing name: BaguioFarmhouse|Parking|garden|wifi|near to town
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 16+
No. of bedrooms: 3

Unknown to most, I have a fantasy of becoming vegan. As to why I’m not is an article for another day, but if I were to imagine myself to be one, I’d love to be vegan in Baguio. This may sound silly at first, but if you visit the Baguio Public Market, you’d get what I’m saying. 

Whenever I visit the city, I hoard lemons and lettuce from the market because they’re so affordable and fresh there. Baguio is just a hotspot for all things healthy and green, and I love how this Baguio Airbnb celebrates that. Functioning as a private greenhouse as much as a transient home, this residence is flourishing with herbs and flowers. Just imagine waking up to their fragrance! The best part? You can actually pick the herbs to season your home-cooked meals!

Sip coffee and read poems as you take in the ambiance of this farmhouse. Saunter down the property and find yourself on the patio where you can grill your own food. Convinced yet? Learn more about this Airbnb here.

5. This simplistic and vibrant loft for the young and hip traveller

Listing name: (1) Newly built apartment 1.4km away from Burnham
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 4
No. of bedrooms: 1

While the previous listings were more stereotypically Baguio, this one brings out the modern take of the city. And when I say modern take, I mean the Baguio version that is heavily inspired by its Korean residents.

Actually, several Koreans study in Baguio for years. It’s unsurprising that hallyu is overtaking the city. In fact, I’ve been eating samgyupsal in the city years before it trended across the Philippines. And, this Baguio Airbnb proves that Korea isn’t only influencing the restaurants and cute cafés in the city.

Evidently inspired by Korean interiors, this residence is light, airy, and minimalist — everything most millennials look for in a home. It features tiny chairs but huge windows, basic lines but vibrant colours. It even has a mini garden so you can take in the fresh Baguio breeze whenever you want! Learn more about this Airbnb here.

6. This sleek den for the minimalist at heart

Listing name: Best location in Baguio! SALE SALE SALE!!! 🙂
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 4
No. of bedrooms: 1

Another modern home, this listing is as straightforward as can be. It’s sparkling clean and spacious, but its main selling point is that it’s located at the MegaTower Residences — a prime location for those who want to regularly walk to Session Road, Burnham Park, SM Baguio, UP Baguio, and the like. So, foodies and shopaholics (read: ukay-ukay fanatics) asking where to stay in Baguio, this is my final answer.

Since this is a condominium, the building itself has several amenities including a coffee shop, restaurants, a laundry shop, and a 24/7 convenience store for all your late night cravings. Learn more about this Airbnb here.

7. This flourishing loft overlooking the mountains

Listing name: Lush and relaxing loft. A real Baguio feels space.
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 4
No. of bedrooms: Studio

If you’ve ever visited the BenCab Museum, the Oh My Gulay restaurant, or the Ililikha Artist Village, then you’ll agree with me that this loft seems touched by all the same elements: greens, art, and a practical use of space.

Planning a staycation with your closest friends? How about a private getaway with your significant other? A simple birthday bash for your mom? Or just a solo trip to escape the noise of Manila? With one queen-sized bed and one sofa bed, this loft makes a mellow spot for all these special occasions. Its location isn’t bad, either, as Marcos Highway is easily accessible through public transportation. Learn more about this Airbnb here.

8. This archetypal Baguio home tucked away in a tranquil subdivision

Listing name: Eve’s Baguio Transient House
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 6
No. of bedrooms: 1

Upon seeing this listing, I got a bit nostalgic. This transient house reminds me of my favourite apartments back in college. You see, you don’t need much when in Baguio. Most times, a couch, a kitchen, and a veranda will suffice (and even satisfy). 

If you’re looking for where to stay in Baguio and you aren’t too fussy about it, then this transient house might be the perfect one for you. It’s spacious enough for a whole family or barkada. It has its own kitchen, too, so maximise it as you cook your palengke-bought vegetables (or longganisa for breakfast!). Make sure to bring a French press along so you can enjoy your Baguio beans as you chill in the veranda. Learn more about this Airbnb here.

9. This Instagrammable rooftop glamping area for the sociable wanderer

Listing name: B.GLAMP – Rooftop GLAMPING B&B
Listing type: Shared room in tent
Max. no. of guests: 16+
No. of bedrooms: 1

Are you in for a unique staycation in Baguio? Then go rooftop glamping at this Airbnb. Yes, you’ve probably only heard of rooftop glamping today, because this area in the Philippines that offers this experience! 

Like most camping spots, this area has a beautiful campfire that gets lit at night — only this Baguio Airbnb brings you way closer to the stars than most glamping spots ever will. Stuff your face with smores and marshmallows by night, and fill your stomach with their complementary brewed coffee and toast in the morning.

Tents and sleeping bags are already set up here, so you don’t need to carry loads of stuff with you as you head to Baguio. Learn more about this Airbnb here.

10. This modest studio apartment for the budget traveller

Listing name: Baguio Hideaway Kitchen/Parking/Wifi/Self Check In
Listing type: Entire home
Max. no. of guests: 3
No. of bedrooms: Studio

Some solo travellers thrive in the energy of strangers in hostels. Others just aren’t as comfortable. Most of the time, I belong to the latter group. I rarely travel solo to meet friends; instead, I do so to cherish time with myself. So when I think of where to stay in Baguio for this particular need, I’d definitely consider this listing.

Because it’s a bit farther than the rest of the places in this article, I can’t recommend this accommodation for travellers keen to explore Baguio. While there are certainly places to eat around the area, the most of the best food experiences are really located at the heart of the city.

That said, the name of this Airbnb says it all: It’s a Baguio hideaway. It offers a retreat from the busyness of life. Its location is perfect if you’re craving for the Baguio breeze and the scent of pine trees. In the morning, you can stroll along the quiet neighbourhood and delight in your own company. Learn more about this Airbnb here.

If Disney were creative enough to let Mulan and Melody (The Little Mermaid 2) have a baby, Danielle is convinced that that baby would be her spirit animal. From an early age, Danielle’s ultimate goal has been to become a bad-ass female hero and a mermaid. While she hasn't held a sword in her lifetime, she feels powerful enough with her pen. Her creative energy is fueled by many things: the quiet right before the rest of the world wakes up, the orange sky as the sun rises during an uncrowded morning surf, the beautiful bitter taste of black coffee, and the threatening reminder of a pending deadline.
