About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    A Nice Stay at Legazpi Airport Hotel

    The hotel nearest to Legazpi Airport is practically walking distance from the Legazpi Airport and located within the airport site itself with the restaurant also serving great food at an affordable price while just outside the hotel is an unobstructed view of Mayon Volcano and Lignon Hill. Tutubi and his "sidekick" checked in at the hotel and here's his experience.

    It was raining when Tutubi checked in at Legaspi Airport Hotel, got booked a junior suite for the two of them and rested for a while. It so happened that a celebration was being held at the airport bar where the videoke machine was at full blast that Tutubi can't concentrate on what he's doing, even sleep.

    legazpi airport hotelThe junior suite has three beds that translates to just P333.33/person/night (about $7), quite affordable actually, suitable for budget travelers

    He complained to the front desk person and requested to be transferred to another room but was informed there was no vacancy for a similar room. An upgraded room was offered but for an additional price but Tutubi haggled that it wasn't his fault and that he can't wait for 11pm for the party to stop and for him to rest. The hotel staff acquiesced to his request and transferred them to the executive room at no extra charge (thus he got free use of the big washroom with bath tub)

    Legazpi Airport Restaurant:

    Recommend longganiza Guinobatan with rice and egg for P75 plus Bicol specialties of Laing and Bicol Express (it's not on the menu but ask for them and they shall be given unto you)

    Legaspi Airport Hotel Review:

    This is a highly-recommended hotel in Legazpi City from a price/convenience and service advantage. Walking distance from Legazpi Airport terminal exit making it the nearest hotel to Legazpi Airport. The staff were nice and courteous, clean rooms, nice food and cheap too. The hotel location is perfect for those booked for an early morning flight to Manila or those who came from Donsol Whale Sharks interaction down south.

    Hi there Backpacking Philippines! :)

    So glad I came across this post. I just want to ask if Legazpi Airport Hotel is just near Pepperland Hotel.

    Too bad that I can only find the Pepperland Hotel in the Google map and I hope somebody can include Legazpi Airport Hotel as well.

    Anyway, I hope there's not much difference of the hotel rates, come this Feb. I had read in many posts that Feb is the peak season for the whale sharks in Donsol. I'll also be referring to your post for Donsol. Thank you so much for posting! :D

    yhun, not familiar with pepperland hotel. legazpi airport hotel is inside the legazpi airport compound so it's easy to add/locate. I don't usually use google map, i'm an Open Street Map contributor
