Welcome to Baguio, a charming city where fresh mountain air and alluring scenery beckon. Look no further than Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio if you're looking for the ideal spot to call home throughout your visit. This beautiful hotel is your passport to an amazing vacation in the City of Pines since it combines comfort, convenience, and breathtaking views. Join me as I explore why Azalea should be your go-to retreat in Baguio and learn about the top places to visit nearby the hotel for a memorable and fun experience.


It was 11.30PM when we departed from Victory Liner Pasay Station to Baguio. I was asleep the whole trip and was surprised to reach Baguio around 4AM. I was expecting to be there around sunrise but the whole trip was smooth and fast. Good thing Azalea had arrange with us a van pick-up. They were so proactive, the staff was already at the Baguio bus stop as early as 3AM! We were lucky to have been permitted to check-in early and so we still had some hours to rest and sleep before embarking on our Baguio escapade.

Baguio is one of my happy places. I visit here yearly though it was put on a halt at the height of the pandemic. After 3 years, I am finally back and I was more than glad to have stayed again at Azalea Baguio.

Azalea Hotels and Residences, located in the center of Baguio, offers a welcoming atmosphere that instantly makes you feel at home. After a day of city exploration, I look forward to unwind in the hotel's comfortable rooms and spacious suites, which are designed to offer maximum comfort and relaxation. Every element, from cozy feels to cutting-edge services, has been carefully chosen to satisfy the requirements of discerning tourists.

Azalea stands out for more reasons than just its luxurious accommodations, though. The welcoming and helpful personnel at the hotel go above and beyond to make your visit a special one.  Their warm smiles and personalized service create a welcoming atmosphere that leaves a lasting impression.


I have stayed in several hotels and transient houses in Baguio, but Azalea will always be on top of my list. Every time I step into the cozy room at Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio, I experience the perfect blend of comfort and convenience. Each room is thoughtfully designed to provide a relaxing and inviting ambiance, ensuring that you feel right at home from the moment you arrive.

I stayed in one bedroom with back balcony. The sofa bed is an additional sleeping space. 
Book this on 'Flash Sale' at Php 5000/night (Sun-Thu) or at Php 7,100/night (weekend rate).

The lavish bed is the focal point of our space. As night crawled, I sank into the velvety mattress and let the soft pillows cradle my head. You bet I slept like a baby.  I woke up feeling rejuvenated and prepared to face the day, whether I'm spending the day visiting Baguio's attractions or attending business meetings. (Seriously, I want to have the duvet that they have in the bed. Any leads, where I can get them?)

The well-appointed bathroom is equipped with all the essentials for your comfort. Enjoy a refreshing shower with the hotel's hot and cold water system, and indulge in the provided toiletries that will leave you feeling pampered. The spacious layout and modern fixtures create a soothing atmosphere, allowing you to unwind and relax. With the cold weather of Baguio, a nice hot shower is a luxury.

You'll find a roomy living area as soon as you exit the bedroom, which makes for the ideal place to relax and unwind. The pleasant room invites you to relax on the plush sofa, which also turns to a bed for additional sleep space. During the night, it was fun binge watching our favorite programs on the SMART TV.

The dining room and fully equipped kitchen are located next to the living area. If you're looking to prepare your own food, the kitchen has everything you need. Our room has a fridge, a microwave oven, stove and water kettle. The dining table/ bar offers ample seating, too. 


Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio offers more than just a place to sleep – it's a gateway to an exceptional Baguio experience. Here's why it should be your top choice for a holiday haven:

1. Prime Location. Azalea is well situated close to Baguio's key sights, making it easy to see the city's well-known landmarks, parks, and marketplaces. You are only a short distance from the center of Baguio, which includes the famous Burnham Park and the bustling Session Road. It is just a stone's throw away to Laperal House, now Joseph Restaurant. Also just in front of the hotel is the Teacher's Camp. 

2. Stunning Views. From some of hotel's windows and balconies, you may enjoy stunning sunrise views of Baguio's verdant mountains and foggy surroundings. The picturesque surroundings create a calm and peaceful ambiance that is ideal for relaxing and reconnecting with nature.

3. Family-friendly & Pet-Friendly Amenities. Azalea is a great option for families because it has spacious rooms and suites that can comfortably fit everyone. The hotel's features, which include a kids' play area, make sure the little ones are amused during their stay. Fur parents can also bring their fur babies. For now this is only available on the attic rooms. Small cats and dogs are the only ones allowed for now. Check with the front office and reservations team to know more about this.

For your fur babies, Azalea Baguio offers this Attic Room.
Get this for only Php 4,000/night on Sun-Thu (Flash Sale); Php 6,500 on weekends.

4. Gastronomic Delights. The hotel's in-house restaurant offers a scrumptious selection of regional and foreign cuisine, so indulge in a culinary adventure there. I was surprised that their restaurant Tradisyon, is now Kuya J. But I still love that even if its now Kuya J, they still serve the buffet breakfast that I totally like about Azalea. The buffet breakfast spells food coma and will indeed fuel your tummy for the morning. Don't forget to get a cup of hot chocolate-it's a piece of heaven. Our stay at Azalea includes buffet breakfast. If you're not staying here, you can still enjoy buffet breakfast at Php 550. Promise, super sulit!


While Azalea offers a haven within its walls, there are plenty of attractions near the hotel that you should not miss. Here are some recommendations for a memorable Baguio experience:

1. Burnham Park is a central hub for recreational activities and is only a short cab ride from Azalea. Rent a boat to navigate the tranquil artificial lake, go bicycling, enjoy a picnic in the middle of the lovely gardens, or enjoy a bounty of food selection. 

2. At Mines View Park, take in panoramic views of Baguio's mining town heritage and the nearby mountains. Don't forget to try the delectable strawberry taho and take a picture with the famous St. Bernard dog.

3. Visit the Baguio Cathedral, also known as the Our Lady of the Atonement Cathedral, a magnificent building that serves as the community's main place of worship. Attend a mass there or just take in the intricate building and serene atmosphere.

4. Camp John Hay, a former recreation center for the Americans, is a great place to learn about Baguio's rich history. Enjoy a round of golf, a leisurely stroll through the extensive gardens, or a tranquil picnic beneath the towering pines.

5. The BenCab Museum, which features the creations of renowned Filipino artist Benedicto Cabrera, is a must-see for art lovers. On the museum's patio, explore the varied collection of contemporary and indigenous art while taking in the breathtaking scenery of the highlands.

6. Visit Tam-awan Village to take in the vibrant culture and distinctive Ifugao architecture. This refuge for artists is tucked away in a lush green setting and provides a window into the native Cordillera way of life. Discover the traditional huts, be amazed by the regional art, and even take part in workshops to let your creative side go. Don't miss the opportunity to watch live cultural dances too.
