Where to stay in Vigan

With the main places to see in Vigan located on Crisologo Street, you'll find the primary accommodations in town close by. The pedestrianized street houses few accommodations itself, but the connecting roads offer some luxury and mid-range hotels set in atmospheric colonial-era buildings. The further you get from the cobbles of Crisologo, the more modern the accommodations, with newly built hotels in both the north and south of town, and some particularly budget-friendly options located along Liberation Boulevard as it crosses the river to the east.
