If you wish to have that rustic feel while in the city, Balay da Blas is best BnB for you. you may either book a room with a canopy bed and antique feel but for those who find that creepy...they also have modern rooms to offer. they even have big,loft-type rooms that can fit up to 10 people at a...

The hotel was neat and the rooms are very spacious as well as the bathroom. Hot shower was working and Aircondition was fine. Foods were a bit pricy. Their breakfast menu costs around P125. It was not worth it. You can try their restaurant outside where more foods are offered on the menu. Wifi is strongest on the 3rd floor,... More

It was my second time to stay in this hotel. What I like about them is that they are very accommodating. During my first stay about a year ago, I was sick and they even checked if I was okay and asked if I needed medicines and salabat. On my second stay I was with friends and we stayed in... More

Another hidden gem in Laoag is this quaint hotel in town -- Balay de Blas. It's very easy to find. It's where the famous Saramsam Restaurant is located. It's also near the famous Laoag/La Paz Sand Dunes. It's just around 15 minutes from the hotel. Very unique. Definitely we had a very different but nice experience. Location wise, it's within...

We were on the 3rd floor and the hotel had no elevator but it was good in the sense that we could do a little exercise when going up to our room. The hotel's dining room was very well decorated and clean. The food was also very good and we were able to get extra help without any charges like... More

Why stay in a generic hotel room when you can stay in Balay da Blas and feel like you are a guest in the owner's house? This B&B has grown since it was first set up -- there are now two buildings where you can choose to stay in a traditional or a modern setting. If you choose to stay... More

We stayed in Balay da Blas for three nights and I now understand why it's the number one b&b in Laoag. It was relaxing to go back to our clean room after our tours as they cleaned our room everyday. Food served in their restaurant was also superb. Best dinuguan I've ever tasted (wished there were more choices though). Would... More
