I have been to this place twice with my family. We always rented the middle room on the second floor of the old building. First time we were there the dining and sala was not yet air-conditioned. No new building yet. This room gives us a rustic feel of the place. We enjoy staying here plus when you are battered... More

had a great stay here for the duration of our laoag-vigan-pagudpud adventure. The room is clean. we are 5 in one room, but the room space is just enough. The plus points: ++ good food! our breakfast are delicious. You can choose the night before on what viand you would like to have for breakfast. Any viand is good! ++... More

Being a top ranking hotel in TA i didnt have any qualms in booking this inn. However as hours passed by after our arrival i was starting to have regrets. Their service is really slow when all i requested was just a towel which in the first place should already be provided beforehand. It took them 2 hrs to give... More

I'll start this review by saying this is NOT a hotel. It is a simple, clean pensionne house. Like somewhat a B&B. It is in a quiet residential area typical of provinces in the Philippines. Even with us staying at their largest, most expensive room (large, decorated, living room, small bar, spacious bathroom - no tub just a shower, no... More

A quiet and cozy place within the City of Laoag. If you want to have an experience of bed and breakfast living, this is the place to be. It has a nice al fresco dining area and a cozy fine dining area. The resto is called Saramsam that serves the best Ilocano food in town.

A house which looks like it has many stories to tell, Balay Da Blas Pensionne House is perfect for families creating memories together. Its website aptly claims it offers "champagne luxury on a beer budget." The rooms are impressive but extremely comfortable at the same time. The best thing about it is Saramsam Ylocano Restaurant and Bar, the in-house restaurant,... More

We arrived late at night in the pensionne and the staff helped us with our bags. We were also assisted to our room. We stayed in Balay da blas 2 (moderne ambience) as we are there only for the night and will be traveling early in the morning for Vigan. Room is spacious enough and clean. Aircon is cool. The...

Basically, you get what you paid for when you stay at Balay da Blas. The rooms are not new, but they are spacious and relatively comfortable. It is located near the city center, so it's quite easy to buy items that you may have forgotten to bring. A must try is the Saramsam restaurant at the hotel. Almost all of... More

Our family love Balay Da Blas and we would definitely book here again for sure. The ambiance is superb and the staff are very accommodating. One thing this hotel should work on is the mosquitoes. Good thing we brought repellant during our stay. Hope we could see e-repellant and air freshener on our next stay!

I was able to get back to this hotel recently for another Ilocos adventure with another group of friends recently (Feb 28 2015). The receptionist still remembers me (thanks Anna!) and I was so happy for their warm welcome. Great service, spacious and uniquely designed rooms for affordable rates, and tasty foods at their restaurant are what you'll get here.... More
