We had travel problems on Good Friday and ended up needing to find a room after 8 pm. We were able to get the last available room here. We needed to leave for the bus station at 4:45. The owner volunteered her driver to take us. We got settled into the room and then went to the restaurant. I had... More

We got lost looking for this place. Anyway, when we checked, we asked for assistance to bring our stuffs in the upper level but the one who has helped was a very petite young lady. The wifi is only available in the reception. There is no parking area. We parked in the streets. We stayed in 1 bedroom unit. There... More

A family and her friend came to visit for the weekend, they previously booked a more expensive accommodation but we're not happy so I took them here. They loved it. It was better, cheaper, cleaner, roomier, nearer to the city where they can get what they want... It's perfect. There was a room worth P1400 per day that is good... More

Because we had a disappointing first night at Laoag Renzo Hotel, we decided to transfer here for our second day. It proved to be a wise decision. The Service I only booked my reservation over the phone, but it was handled really well by their staff. They asked if we had any special requests, what time should they expect us,... More

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
