I am not always writing reviews but really wanted to endorse this hotel. It is very characteristic and charming and really makes you feel welcome. We only stayed for one night on our way to Pagudpud but enjoyed it very much. Rooms are clean, comfortable and adequate, hotel premise is great and well maintained. In the evening we had a... More

When you go into the hinterlands outside of the USA or Manila, you never quite expect you will find a hotel up to standard, and the Java was a nice surprise. Even though there's a huge gasoline station in front of it, one cannot miss the unusual Balinese/Indonesian style of architecture. We got our bags up and checked in, and... More

A marvelous, quirky, indonesian designed hotel which is unfortunately situated behind a gasoline station. The staff are nice and helpful. Their rooms are spacious and pretty but has no complimentary water, slippers or toothbrush. They have a uniquely designed tricycle which can take you anywhere within the city for P25 per head per way. The 24 hr convenience store at... More

You could almost miss it driving by because there's a gas station in front of it. The staff was friendly with any questions we had and our rooms were kept clean and well-stocked with towels and toiletries. It did seem a little out of the way, though. I was pleasantly surprised by my stay.

An eye catcher architectural design of the Hotel. Clean and spacious. Comfortable lobby and great decors. The staff were courteous and responsive to the needs of the guests. Nice room and a very good swimming pool. Awed by the grandiose space it covered. A nice restaurant too just when you go down left. For airport - hotel pick up they... More

We saw this hotel on our trip north when we stopped for gas at the station in front of the place. Didn't even know there was a hotel there because you can't really see it from the road. It looks like a giant grass hut inspired by beautiful Indonesian architecture. The hotel is a pleasant surprise just outside a busy... More

The first thing that will catch your attention is the design of the hotel which resembles like a big 'kubo' (native hut), apparently the biggest 'hut' in the country, although the rooms inside are already modern and concrete. The room fixtures are decent for a provincial city. The room is spacious, but the bed quality is average, and the furnitures... More

This Indonesian inspired hotel may be one of the better hotels in Laoag. It is located near the downtown and is easily accessible by local transportation (tricycle) if you want to explore the city. It is also a good jump off point if you want to go to the famous Pagudpod. Staying a night or two in this hotel to... More

I was welcomed with a beautifully designed Indonesian inspired hotel that i came to like instantly,very distinct and i appreciate it that it combined local material even if its concretized. The receptionists were friendly though we spent more time deciding and computing for our room fees and patiently they accomodated us. They honored a senior citizen card and they provide... More
