Rain or shine, the heat in the Philippines is unrelenting. That’s why a lot of people flock to places in higher altitudes like Tagatay, Antipolo, and of course, the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio. There’s definitely a lot of places you could choose for your next stay there, but these vintage lodgings will bring you closer to the city’s history, as well as make your trip perfectly Instagrammable.
The Old Orangewood Bed & Breakfast
Originally a vacation home for an American family in the 1930s, this old house eventually became the hub of an international missionary organization, as well as a school and dormitory for the missionaries’ children. It then went on to become the house of a businessman and even a mock hotel where HRM students practiced their skills. Now, this humble abode serves as a bed and breakfast for visitors looking for a laidback, cozy, home-feel atmosphere — but you know, cooler.
Rates start at PHP 1600 per room (good for 2 pax, max of 3)

WN HillTop Bed and Breakfast
If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, why not spend it at the top of the hills of Baguio? Located far from the busy main streets of the city, WN HillTop is a spacious apartment perched on a hilltop overlooking a stunning golf course and surrounded by mountains. It’s located nearby the BenCab Museum, where you can enjoy solitude while looking at great works of art, so it’s perfect for those who just want to relax and unwind.
Peredo’s Lodging House
Declared as a “Mahalagang Yamang Pangkalingan ng Tanda” by the National Museum, Peredo’s Lodging House is a whimsical craftsmanship of pinewood that harkens back to the old style houses of your lolos and lolas. Much of the furniture are also made by local carpenters
Le Coq Floral
The floral-themed house could make you feel like you were transported to France during your stay. Each room is designed according to its name — Sunflower, Rose, Lavender, and Leaf — while the miniature garden, along with the beautiful trellis on the terrace, completes the French homestay feels.
Go back in time and stay in the beautiful Casa Vallejo, which has over a hundred years of rich history. While there had been renovations over the years, this iconic hotel has tried to preserve as much of the original structure as they can. So you can feel the vintage vibes while inside, but still be able to access the urban lifestyle at the SM Baguio right beside it. Or relax at Burnham Park just a stone’s throw away. But don’t forget to try dining at their famous in-house restaurant, Hill Station!
