How to Book an Accommodation in Cebu

Learn how to book a Hotel in Cebu. Understand Cebu first before hitting that reservation button.

As mentioned in my Cebu page, Cebu is both the name of the province and the city. Cebu City is the capital city of Cebu Province. So, before making a reservation, see to it that you know where you want to stay and how far is it from Cebu City or Mactan Cebu International Airport or Cebu Pier.

If you intend to stay in Cebu City area, always make sure to see Cebu City in the address because the absence of the word "city" means that you might be looking into a property that is not part of Cebu City but instead part of Cebu Province.
