“Plaza del Norte”

I never thought that there is a hotel worth staying in Laoag. This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are well maintained. The facilities are nice. The place is clean. There is just one downside, the internet connection sucks. Other than that, everything else is nice. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Laoag, either alone or with the whole family.

I booked this hotel online for only 1200+ pesos per night. The hotel is located far from the highway. Private transportation is needed as there are limited taxis and public transportation available. It seems that the hotel do not offer shuttle service to/from the city. Their staff are friendly and approachable.

Their choice of breakfast is very limited and their breakfast serving was little. If they could offer a buffet breakfast it will be better. Food is quite expensive. There was a time we ordered a seafood sinigang and it wasn't good at all. There were more pork instead of seafood on top of that it seemed that the chef used a lot of water and forgot to taste it. During our stay, we have noticed that their pool was dirty. There were no assigned persons to clean it in the morning or at night.

For tourists like us, the hotel was very near some tourist spots like the Paoay Lake, Paoay Church, and the Malacanang of the North. The Fort Ilocandia Golf Course is just across the hotel. If you plan to go to Pagudpud but don't want to stay in Pagudpud, the hotel is just 1 1/2 hr away. The hotel is also 1-1.5 hours from Vigan City depending on which road you take. The hotel rooms are clean. Towels and bottled waters were changed everyday. There's cabled tv and a refrigerator. Just don't expect that there are food/drinks in the refrigerator like in other big hotels. They also offer city tours. For an extra person, they charged us 800 pesos a night. Children do not get free breakfast.

Overall it was a good hotel for its price. I would love to come back and stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: It doesn't matter which rooms they give you, the quality will still be the same.

Visited some friends in Laoag. Stayed for the very first time in Ilocos Norte Hotel and Convention Center.

The place is new. Looks and feels very clean. The staff are warm and friendly. The rooms are simple but elegant. Had some problem though with the pressure of water in the shower and the hot water as well.

Tried their Asian Buffet, not so happy about it. Good thing the breakfast (iloco-longaniza) was good.

The rate of Php1,500 comes with free airport transfer. If you want this rate, book on-line.

Lastly, the place is very near the Malacanang of the North and about 15 minutes away from the World Heritage Paoay Church. It's approximately about 15 minutes away also from Laoag City.

Try out this new hotel in Laoag if you've tried and stayed in other five star hotels in the province. Newly opened about a week ago, this place is worth the stay. Staff are attentive and if you're lucky enough, the general manager will welcome your arrival. Its got all the facilities including new dormitory rooms to accommodate nearby students in the the neighboring provinces including Manila on a "study tour. Near the Malacanang of the north if your into the Marcos Trail tour. Very new and rooms smell so fresh. All roms are wified, plus the standard idd, complimentary bottled water, cable tv with its own chapel for the wedding market. Its also near the Paoay golf complex.
