“Good value for money. Stairs are substandard though.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I chose Hotel Tiffany based on other traveller's reviews and photos, and matched it with my need for a price in the USD25 to 45 range, but at the same time not too short on quality.

Surprisingly, the inside of the hotel was more than I expected. The rooms were clean and properly maintained. Even the decor was not as I had perceived from the photos. The toilet and bath were also neat and looked after; water pressure was normal. The beds were comfortable and clean. Aircon was quiet and it worked. And the wall mounted plasma TV had a wide selection of channels.

Wi-fi is not very strong inside the room, and can sometimes drop off. There is a common sitting area outside the room where you can check email and update your facebook status. The hotel provides daily newspapers for guests to read in the sitting area.

The staircases in the hotel are definitely substandard. The step height is greater than the average 7 3/4 inch rise and the depth of each step is less than the standard 11 1/2 inch run. As a result of this build, the inclination of the staircase is steeper and more dangerous than a normal staircase. So if you were a teenager in the 50's and you chose this hotel because of its 1950's theme then you are in for a pretty good workout!

The decor in the diner at the Ground Floor is pretty good. You can just imagine Betty and Veronica on a date with Archie Andrews. It is a good location for a themed pictorial.

There are bicycles for rent at PHP25 per hour. There is no whole day rate.

Aside from the sub standard specifications of the built-up staircases, I take issue with the address of the hotel. Officially Hotel Tiffany is on General Segundo Avenue. The de facto name of the street is Bacarra Road, and this is how locals refer to the main street that Hotel Tiffany is on. No one knew where Gen Segundo was, but some people fortunately knew where Hotel Tiffany was, and were able to point me in the right direction when I arrived in Laoag. It would be nice if the politicians would just stop renaming roads, and concentrate on building new ones instead so they could name them after their grandmothers, uncles, mistresses, and themselves!

The location of the hotel in the tripadvisor map is wrong. The hotel is near the Provincial Capital, two corners north of the Max's Restaurant.

In photos the hotel looks dodgy because of the 50's interior paint. Pink walls are associated with love-hotels along EDSA in the Cubao and Pasay areas that charge by the hour. But Hotel Tiffany is a proper hotel. The rooms are well maintained, the front desk staff are friendly and accommodating and the price is fair. I made a good choice in choosing to stay at Hotel Tiffany from 05-06 August 2013.

Room Tip: Get a lower floor. The stairs are steep.

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Tiffany Hotel. We second the good points noted by others as well as the more common deficiencies. The staff is welcoming and helpful - but there was so much stuff parked in front that it was almost impossible to approach with luggage when we arrived.

The adjacent MACY's restaurant is outstanding - but it closes early.

The property is exceptionally clean and insect free - but basic repairs are neglected.

The air conditioning worked splendidly - but there NO hot water at all in the shower.

The staff is friendly and helpful - but this property is a four story walk up: elevator free.

The hotel is centrally located. Its prices are as modest as the hotel. It is now time for us to search further for our rooming needs in Laoag.

I stayed in Hotel Tiffany Laoag for 5 days. I booked the Family room because i needed space to hold meetings. I was very happy with my room which included 1 queen-sized bed, 1 single bed, a mini ref, ipod dock, split type aircon, study table and dining table for four. The bathroom was very spacious and the hot water was really HOT (sometimes, scalding). The best thing about this hotel is that it is in a very convenient location... walking distance to almost anywhere in the city. The staff were also friendly and approachable. They even allowed me to check out late because my flight was at 5pm.

The only negative is that there is NO elevator in the building. My room was on the 4th floor. Be warned that the stairs are steep and if your are with people who have a problem with stairs (old, young, heart problems, asthma), book early and request for a room on the 2nd floor. but if you don't mind the compulsory cardio workout (like me - i needed the exercise) then this is a good hotel choice for you.

I will surely be back in Laoag and will book this hotel again :) More power to Hotel Tiffany!

You want a clean, affordable place to stay in at the center of town? This is definitely the place to be! Anywhere you want to go is walking distance. You want to go a little further for some tourist stops, take a tricycle. Bus stations are also very near if you need to go to the outskirts.

The staff are friendly too and very easy to talk to. They'd offer you insights re places to go to and see.

The Diner at the first floor is super clean and exudes an American Boulevard aura plus it serves really good food too! Jollibee's a stone's throw away if you're craving for the Pinoy peach-mango pie.

I'd stay in this hotel over and over and over! All backpackers, friends, famly, this is your place!!! =)

This was our first stop when we arrived at Ilocos from Manila. The manager of the hotel was considerate to let us stay in a 'for-one-person-only room' since we arrived at already around 9pm.

The room and shower room was clean. The linens of the pillow and bed though smell like mildew. I supposed there's not many people who stays in the single occupancy room.

The good thing about this hotel is its proximity to most of the usual places one would visit in Laoag.

The staff was helpful to our room service needs as well as our queries regarding our travel plans.

The location of the hotel is right in the center of Laoag City. It is perfectly walkable to the provincial capitol where one could have a good view of some historic landmarks, and not to forget to mention it proximity to nice restaurants. If you stay in this hotel, your are on the same road that leads you to Burgos, Bangui and Pagudpud towns.

The staff are very courteous and always ready to assist to open their private garage that is located behind the building. The room that we stayed in on the 2nd floor, Rm. 202, is well cleaned, excellent AC, nice reception TV, and with hot/cold shower. Only thing is that the partition between the shower area and toilet allowed water to seep hence making the toilet wet which I personally disliked very much!!! The resto at the ground floor looks interesting replicating some food chains in the 50's in the USA. My 10-year old daughter was delighted playing the jukebox!

The colorful design motif -- an earnest mashup of Florida resort chic and Gulfstream-era transit motel -- adds charm to the otherwise simple rooms. Adequate space. Sufficiently comfortable. Superb location; walking distance to most attractions in the city center. Definitely worth the off-peak rate.

Bear in mind that there's no elevator, in case you're lugging gear with you. It wasn't an issue for my girlfriend and I, but some might regard that as a point of consideration.
