Obdulia's Business Inn - Dumaguete City

Obdulia's Business Inn

The Obdulia's Business Inn has 21 rooms to choose from and is conveniently located right across from the Bell Tower and Quezon Park in the heart of downtown Dumaguete.  Obdulia's is a budget-friendly hotel in a perfect location to explore the City of Dumaguete. 

Obdulia Rooms & Rates

Rooms at Obdulia's Business Inn range from 900 pesos for a standard twin room to 1,800 for a suite with mini-fridge and water dispenser.  While not the swankiest of places the rooms are clean, beds comfortable, and air-cons cold.  All rooms have cable TV and there is an ethernet port in each room for connecting to the internet.  If you are expecting in-room wifi in this “business inn” you may want to look elsewhere.  The only WIFI available was in the downstairs lobby that becomes relatively busy as there are a number of small businesses that share this space selling travel services.   

The majority of the rooms face the busy street and can be a little noisey for light sleepers we didn't have an issue once the air conditioner was blasting.   If noise is a problem for you be sure to tell the friendly staff so they can try to arrange a room for you away from the busy street. Room service is available from Rosalio's Restaurant on the second floor and is not a bad place to people watch the busy steet below but with so many great restaurants around Dumaguete I'd find it hard to eat there more than once.

Downtown Dumaguete City

With downtown Dumaguete City out your door you will have plenty to do.  Obdulia's is right in the center of the business district.  Take either the national highway or Dumaguete - Bacong roads north a kilometer and you'll find yourself in the middle of Silliman University.  During our stay we had a room that faced the Bell Tower during the holidays.  It was a great view to see the procession people as they approached the church.  

Directions to Obdulia's

From the bus station just grab a trike headed towards downtown.  You'll probably just want to tell them you want to go to the Bell Tower if your prononciation of names like "Obdulia's" is not up local level.  A ride on a shared trike costs only ten pesos, however, if you have a lot of luggage and are a foreigner expect to pay upwards of 50 pesos for a special trip.  On my way into town the bus came up the boulevard and towards quezon park.  If you find yourself in the same situation just tell the bus driver to let you out at the park.  Obdulia's is right across the street.  Trikes from the airport are harder to find and will generally cost 100-200 pesos.  You'll be better off just taking a van.
