It is my third time in Ilocos but my first stay at Balay da Blas. I was surprised to see such nice cozy interiors here. Each room is different...old traditional Filipino pieces put together and tastefully done. Everything is clean. Towels smell nice too. I truly hope it stays this way.........The staff are friendly and courteous. The icing of the... More

Five of us stayed here for one night at the start of the bank holiday weekend and I can't praise this place highly enough. Awesome food, great customer service and nice accommodation. You really couldn't ask for more. We even came back here at the end of the weekend after a really disappointing stay at Pannzian Beach resort in Pagudpud.... More

Being first time travellers to the Ilocos region, me and 3 of my friends were both excited yet skeptical about our accomodation arrangements..till we came across Balai. This place just saved our trip! Homey ambiance, friendly and warm staff, perfect location, native Ylocano Resto serving scrumptous food (Saramsam).. its just the right place to stay in Laoag. Even pre arrival,... More

I enjoyed our stay in Balay Da Blas. Very nice and friendly staffs. And very spacious room. We stayed for 4 nights in their Barkada room. Many beds and 2 bathrooms. U can request new towels and bed linens everyday. I love their food too :) SARAMSAM serves yummy Ilocano dishes! Will definitely recommend to friends and will stay again... More

Service is so good will make you come back here next trip! Saramsam resto downstairs is a plus considering this is a must try here in Laoag. Dine here everyday either lunch or dinner. Breakfast was awesome! We booked the Barkada Room max 10 pax with 2 T&B. I gave 4 stars because it needs improvement on blanket and parking... More

Balay da Blas was the perfect base for our Ilocos Norte trip. The rooms were excellent and the staff provided excellent service. The excellent service started during booking. We were in Vigan the day before coming to Laoag and didn't have a hotel room yet. I sent a message to Balay da Blas and got an immediate reply that they... More

Balay da Blas deserves winning the Trip Advisor award because they prove that they have value for money. My friend and I stayed at their traditional building. The room cost us P1,500 but it was worth every penny. There were 2 queen sized beds, one for each of us, and both beds were very comfortable and helped us sleep like... More

The "pensionne house" tag made us skeptical at first. But all the glowing reviews, made me want to go give it a try. Its location is central and makes for a good take off point for tours as it is close to the city proper but not in a crowded area. The room is clean, although of course, it is... More
