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

Our room was just as described, and very reasonably priced, too. Their restaurant was a gem, truly a fusion of Ilocos old and new. The restaurant staff is well-trained, and it showed. The food did not disappoint. We even came back the following day to eat, after our checkout. We will definitely recommend you staying there.

Good value for money. Room is equipped with comfortable beds, air conditioning, and hot/cold showers. Our room is on the third floor right before the veranda and provides a very beautiful view of the sky during sunset. The staff were very cheerful and helpful. They have contacted me a couple of times to make sure that everything is in order... More
