“It's like living in the Spanish Era :)”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

My husband and I were a little bit scared of the idea in sleeping in an old house at first, but it was actually a great experience. No ghosts at all. :)

The place is quiet and well maintained. I loved looking at the old pictures on the wall. The whole set-up was like how it was during it's time so it feels like you were back in the Spanish Era. The air conditioning works well, although there were a few mosquitoes, so better use the mosquito net for the bed. We stayed in the master bedroom and it was huge! We felt like a whole family can stay here comfortably.

The caretakers were very nice to us and breakfast was fantastic. It's also just walking distance to Calle Crisologo.

The property is well maintained and if you like history then you are surrounded by it. The owners are wonderful and very informative and friendly. Breakfast was excellent (I had a local breakfast not a continental breakfast). There is a lot to see and do in Vigan and the surrounding area's. My Loaog and Vigan city tours were very interesting and can be arranged by the hotel. My room was large and extremely comfortable.
I'll definitely go back for another visit and would highly recomend a visit.

Room Tip: It's a small boutique hotel, all rooms are individual and unique.

We've stayed recently for 1 night in cuarto delos hijos.

Here are the good points:
1. Large room (good for 5)
2. Very good parking space (so far the largest I think in the Vigan Heritage Place).
If you have a car, highly recommended.
3. Very friendly and helpful personnel (Maricris and Tony)
4. Rice-fresh and yummy.
5. Not pricey

For improvements:
1. Lightings

Cuarto Delos Hijos has its separate bathroom named "Hijos" and we got confused at first that it was only for the boys and the "Pequenas" was for the girls. We ended sharing comfort rooms with other guests.

They have basic amenities. You will feel the charm of old days with the place and service.
A few steps from Calle Crisologo.

I booked the Cuarto de los Hijos one weekend in July 2012 so my foreign guest could experience the country's Spanish heritage.

We knew what to expect from a house over a hundred years old. Despite its age, it was still grand and charming. It may not be perfectly maintained but you can still feel its once glorious past. Comparing it with modern hotels and their conveniences is a futile attempt.

We arrived at 5:00am, too early for check-in time but the staff welcomed us and made us feel comfortable in the room we booked since it was vacant anyway. We were asked what kind of breakfast we wanted for the next morning - "nothing else but Vigan longganisa", we all exclaimed.

There were four of us in the room, but the space was more than enough. There was one queen bed and two single beds, all four-post carved wood. Each one has a mosquito net neatly hung; it made me realize I haven't seen those since my childhood days. There was no need for them anyway because the room was air-conditioned.

Before bedtime, we were trying to scare each other that ghosts still lingered in the house, but of course there was nothing of that sort. We all had a comfortable sleep.

Villa Angela is a few blocks away from the famous Calle Crisologo if you pass through the house's back door. It is quite a comfortable walk.

As for me, the best thing about staying there is the staffs' friendliness and hospitality. It makes you feel like a relative coming over for a visit, and when it was time to go, you kind of feel sad.

An old heritage home. Everything's antique. Furniture, windows, everything. But well maintained. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite or whatever it was called. Tom Cruise stayed in the same room and slept in the same bed. Not very exciting for me but thought I'd mention it anyway. Great breakfast of Vigan longganisa. Beautiful place to stay. It's almost like traveling back in time and catching a glimpse of what life may have been like in those days. We were free to take pictures anywhere in the house and grounds. Sat in the antique furniture too. I highly recommend this place to those who love nostalgia.

Those staying at Villa Angela need to know before booking that is a very basic place to stay. I feel that the information in our guidebook (and on this website) was somewhat misleading. We were expecting something a lot grander. The room and facilities were very basic. Paper-thin walls means that if you have noisy neighbours you can count on a poor night’s sleep. The only real positive is that the staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall, it’s a place that I wouldn’t return to or recommend to family and friends.
