Where to Stay in Naga City?


Due to the festive season during Peñafrancia Festival, it is necessary that you plan your trip in advance. Naga City has a wide array of affordable and high quality hotels, guest/pension houses, hostel and inns for you to stay in!

I have personally tried, Moraville Hotel and Restaurant along Dinaga Street, Naga City. It is a 4-storey, newly-refurbished hotel tucked in a quiet side street in the heart of Naga city. It is also strategically located within the city's business hub, shopping and leisure centers and historical destinations are just nearby. You may contact them at (054) 473-1247 or (054) 881-1378.
