The 20 Cheapest Quarantine Hotels in Cebu, Philippines

Cebu City Philippines

The Philippines is not currently open to international tourists. However, the country is allowing the return of overseas Filipino workers, their families (as long as they are travelling together), foreign officials and diplomats as well as foreign citizens with Filipino citizenship. (See here for more information on the latest travel restrictions for the Philippines.)

When arriving in the Philippines, all travellers are required to quarantine for 14 days, with 10 of those being in a government-approved quarantine hotel. (Recently, the quarantine was shortened from 14 to 7 days for travellers who are fully vaccinated.)

Below, we take a look at the best value for money quarantine hotels in Cebu City for those who have international flights arriving on the island of Cebu. The hotels are listed from cheapest to most expensive and are all under 2,000 PHP or $40 USD per night. (Be sure to check out our “Top Picks” below for best value for money options!)

4. Escenario Central Hotel – TOP PICK!

“Best little basic hotel”, said one reviewer from Australia on Agoda.com. The Escario Central Hotel offers quarantine stays for a good price with spotless, stylish rooms and friendly, helpful staff. They have a so-called ‘red’ and ‘orange room’ set up for quarantine purposes. The room is 18m2 and has AC, WIFI, hot shower and TV with satellite and cable channels.

  • Includes – Full board meals

This basic hotel is cheap and cheerful, offering clean AC rooms with flat-screen cable TV and desk for working. There is a private bathroom with a hot shower, free toiletries and clean towels.
