Okay, you now know a little bit about Tacloban so let’s find your hotel by answering the following questions by considering several factors:
How long will you stay in Tacloban?
If like many tourists–you’re spending only one, two, or maybe up to five nights in the Tacloban, a location that’s easy to reach from your arrival or departure point (such as an airport or bus station) may be the most important consideration in where to stay. But if If you’re in the city for at least a week, a “live like a local appeal” may be the more important consideration.
Types of accommodation and how much do you have to spend?
You’ve got plenty of choices. From apartments, hostels, hotels, to pension houses. If you’re trying to manage expenses, pension houses can give you more for your money. Stay away from multi-starred hotels where restaurants, cafés, and bars in or around it tend to be more expensive.
