Hotels Near SM / SMX Bacolod 2018

Here are hotels and cheap pension houses near SM / SMX Convention Center in the city of Smiles, Bacolod for both leisure and budget travellers. I arranged them in such a way that the cheapest pension houses appear at the bottom part. 

SM is located at the heart of Bacolod City. SM is in a walking distance from the iconic Public Plaza, and basically this giant Philippine Mall is key to strategic places like BREDCO pier to Iloilo, vans to airport, SMX convention center, Lacson street and hotels.

SMX Convention Center Bacolod is a prime location for events, birthdays, shows, concerts and other here in the City of Smiles. If you happen to be speaking, attending or facilitating events here, below are my suggested accommodations as a local. 

These are also near BREDCO / Pier to Iloilo and other 2GO ships. So if happen to be needing a resting place near BREDCO port, book here so you can come early for your schedule and won’t be late.

Almost everyday, I go to SM and passby nearby hotels because most of my client meetups for Sun Life and house and lots,  my tasks at our real estate office, and my exercise place are all in SM vicinity. So I just gathered these information below to help people make the best decision where to stay near SM / SMX Bacolod.

Smaller but best-seller. This is a cute inn inside a small street but has excellent accessibility to key areas like SM, Plaza, Burgos, Lacson Street, LCC and downtown. It lacks parking but good for trotters. If your trip is just riding through jeepneys to Lacson or some Masskara events, this is a good location.

I came there to take a pic during night time to see how security system looks. One guard is assigned, place is lit, only that the road entering the street has some "tambays" o bystanders, but generally I would say it is safe.

Sea Breeze Hotel

One of the first / oldest hotels in Bacolod. The reason why it was called “Sea Breeze” is because the back of this hotel was the seashore before, before the city decided to transform it into a reclamation. 

I do not recommend this hotel if you are after luxury hotel, but only if you are on a budget. If you want to watch the final stages of Masskara Dance Festival, this one will give you quick and easy access to the Public Plaza.

  • Address: San Juan Street Bacolod
  • Category: Budget Hotel
  • Tel: (034) 433 7370
  • 12 Minutes Walk to SMX
  • 5 Minutes by Private Car
  • 3 minutes walk to Bacolod Public Plaza
  • See map

Some may be wondering about the security at night. Two things I observed this 2018: (1) The city government invested in lighting the public plaza at night, putting bright flash and street lights, causing benches and trees to look good, and add to the safety of the place. This would mean a safer walking to this hotel from SM or SMX Convention Bacolod.

LD Pension House
