I highly recommend BALAY DELA RAMA to anyone who is looking for a value for your money accomodation if you are planning to go to Legazpi Albay. The place is decent and clean, the breakfast is very filipino, and the staff are exceptionally friendly and accomodating- especially Mr. Jess Hernandez. My family and I will definitely come back next time... More

Balay dela Rama's B&B is very strategically located. Aside from being accessible to all modes of transportation (10mins away from Legazpi airport, bus/van/jeep/trike infront of the house), the great hospitality of the young couple owners is superb. Very affordable, breakfast is ok, Cagsawa is just a jeep ride away, 10mins. max. We will book again when we visit Magayunon Bicol.

The rooms is good value for 36 USD with view to the... More

For our Bicol tour, I have based my accommodation on Trip Advisor and saw that Balay dela Ram holds the top spot for B&B location. Prior to making any reservations, I contacted the place and Jess (manager) was gracious enough to entertain my questions about the place and region. While the offer was basic (Bed and Breakfast), the service was... More

A wonderful bed and breakfast in Daraga/Legaspi. The owners Jess and Karen were very helpful and accomodating. The breakfast was fresh, cooked while you wait. Our room was on the third floor facing a big mango tree which absorbs the street noise. It's a good size room with own shower and bath. We would have preferred the room facing the... More

We booked a deluxe room and chose the bedroom on the lower level. That is probably the best room in the house (see pictures). It was very quiet since there were no adjoining rooms, huge(!!), had a TV, very private, very clean and neat, and was right next door to the dining room where we had breakfast. Specify the room...

The owner is very friendly and helpful and recommends many activities that can be done with public transportation. We also saw whale sharks in Legazpi when there was no whale shark in Donsol!!! So we changed our plans and cancelled Donsol, but stayed 3 days in Balay de la Rama. He is always trying to explain Philippine culture and recommended... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the Bicolano language, "Balay" means house, and we strive to be just that, your home away from home but with the backyard view of Mayon Volcano, to add a bit of spice to it. Balay de la Rama is a six-room family house, with six spacious rooms available for short-term homestay. Like any provincial home, it has big windows to promote natural ventilation, and indeed, the gentle, or sometimes stalwart breezes are enough to lull you to sleep as you take your afternoon siesta by the wooden sofa, or better yet, on the hammock by the balcony. If by any chance it is summer, and the mango tree is in full bloom, you can spend afternoons picking mango, or if that is too much effort, you can wait for them to fall, so you can eat them with hot bagoong (shrimp paste). If you’d rather read than be hit by falling mangoes, then the owner’s personal collections are free for you to browse. Come dinnertime, you can join the family meal to sample that spicy Bicolano cooking, such as "pinangat," or "ginantaang gulay," or you can request for that poor man’s fare, such as tinapa (smoked fish) or "tuyo" (salted fish), if you suddenly crave for them. We won't force you to eat "balut" (fertilized duck egg), but would love to see your priceless expression as you try. If you came to Bicol to see moody, fiery Mayon, all you need to do is cast a sideways glance by the window, and there it is. But we know you may want to swim with the whale sharks in Donsol, wakeboard in CWC or island-hop in Caramoan, then this is a great jump-off point with easy access to all kinds of transport to your destination. The land at which Balay de la Rama stands has been with the dela Rama family for more than a century. While Balay itself isn't ancient, the warm family spirit and hospitality is. Your Bicolana host is herself an avid backpacker, but knows that indeed, there is no place like home. ... more   less
