It is cheap for a basic accommodation in the heart of Vigan. A few minutes walk from the heritage. Air-conditioning though does not work well, I feel that HP isn't enough for the size of the room. There's an extension charge that I wasn't made aware of if you check out between 1pm to 2pm. I checked out at 1:02... More

HEM Apartelle was recommended to us by a friend, apparently he usually stay here every time he's in Vigan. The price is reasonable, and the place is neat. We stayed at room 33. The staffs are courteous & accommodating. Breakfast is not included but they offered us hot water for coffee and lend us some coffee mugs & spoons. The... More

We stayed at this apartelle for two days. I chose this one because of it's affordable price and location. The room was clean and also the CR. I thought everything is great about this apartelle because of the reviews that I have read about it but based on mybown experience, we encountered a lot of problems. First, upon checking in,...

HEM is one of only 2 budget (-ish) hotels in Vigan, the other one being Vigan Hotel. HEM has advantage of giving you AC, TV and proper toilet in the room. But the room is devoid of any character or charm or even a window. Therefore, it is only a passable option. The staff at the reception is not very... More

The place is clean and comfortable. Staffs are nice and location is good. Price is reasonable. You have to bring your own soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste and tissue. The apartelle doesn't provide those. And no breakfast. Definitely staying here again because the options are really expensive if you're here for work all the more the place to be.

They immediately respond to inquiries or calls back immediately when they missed out your call. They have flexible policies and considerate enough to their guest request/s. For a budget hotel, I'm surprised how clean and tidy our room was. Everything functions well (aircon, TV, heater and wifi) but they do not offer meal of all sorts. But don't worry, restaurants...

One of the best budget rooms you'll ever stay in! Can't sing enough praise. Room is ultra-clean, hot showers, free Wifi, air-con, TV, towel and very comfy beds. Great value at p600 for cheapest room and ideal location. Staff very helpful and friendly even changing towels and linen when I pleaded with them not to save energy - They insisted!... More

A basic, clean hotel at the center of Vigan. It reminds me of backpackers and youth hostels and with its affordable price including free breakfast, it's a good alternative for travelers on a budget. I stayed in a room with bunk beds good for six since it was the only one available then but I was not charged extra. There'... More
