Since this Pension House was highly recommended in TA, I did not hesitate to book here for my trip. However, I quickly regretted booking here because the room we were in was in the old building, the furnishings were not updated and the bathroom was too small and did not have good ventilation. I gave this an average rating becaue... More

Balay da blas is more of a public government housing than an inn or bed and breakfast. It’s just like staying at one of your relative’s houses in Laoag except that you have to pay them for your stay. Breakfast was OK nothing really special. Will not recommend Balay da blas.

I am really disappointed with Balay da Blas. I heard and read so many good things about the ‘hotel’ but there was nothing amazing about this ‘hotel’ to be honest. We stayed in their junior suite which has a spacious living room and it feels like you are just staying in your own house as there was no AC in... More

It was a very pleasant short stay but Ms Anna and her accommodating and hospitable service, even though she was so busy and tired, was a very nice welcome to the guests. She helped me in choosing my rooms too and will help you with some of the tours too. The pensionne house has a strong wifi signal but only... More

Checking out different hotels at Laoag, this pension house held me and my parents. Though a bit over our budget, we are pleased on the place. The room given to us is 102, near the garden. Cozy and maximized(not too cramped) like a mini apartment, with a cultural air like our old house in the province but much more trendy.... More

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.
