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

At first the hotel looked perfectly fine to us. Room was basic but clean. The hotel staff promised us free wifi, hot/cold shower airco and TV for P1000. All fine, we checked in and that's when the disappointment started. At first there was no WiFi. Staff knew this but did not tell us anything and just gave us the password.... More

Stayed with a group, excellent value for money for groups on a tight budget. Its very close to Calle Crisologo and within the heritage district. Will stay here again, this time bringing in my family. The light at the shower room was broken--we had to shower while a door was open to let some light in.

Stayed with three friends on October 20, 2013. This is one of the nice, budget friendly hotels in Vigan especially that it is right inside the heritage area. Booking was quite easy and the caretaker readily replied to my queries. Room was 500 per night complete with a TV, a nice bathroom, closets, tables and comfortable beds (which is nice... More

LOCATION - This is always important, eh? - It's 2 (?) small/tiny blocks away from Calle Crisologo - The tricycle driver I got didn't really know the place - It seems that HEM's water is more popular, which is also owned by HEM's Apartelle - Because of this, I took photos of the shops on the left and right side...
