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 explore the city before you go to Pagudpod is recommended. The only set back is its facade from the main road. It is fronted by a gasoline station that somehow affects its aesthetic look. The hotel lobby has a good design though it is not airconditioned and can be very humid and hot during summer. The hallways are unique in design. The rooms are relatively larger than the rooms in other Laoag hotels. The room balcony is facing a ricefield at the back of the hotel and can be relaxing during afternoons. The beds are so..so.. in terms of comfort but is big enough to accomodate 2 persons. The room lighting is somewhat dim and can be improved. The fixtures inside the room is a little bit old but still gives the effect of its inspired theme. The hotel staff are relatively courteous except for one instance that my sleep was bothered by continuous knocking of a staff that was tasked to clean the room. Their staff should somehow know the whereabouts of their guest specially if there were arrangements made for transportation service. I've waited for almost 2 hours in the hotel lobby waiting for my transport service en route to another hotel for a meeting, unknowingly the receptionist already told my supposed to be service that I've already left thus making me wait for that long - that almost ruined my day. A must try is their restaurant Eagles Nest, serving authentic Ilocano food, much better than the other restos in the city. It offers good ambience and friendly resto staff. Overall, my stay here is quite good. I will still come back and stay at this hotel. Im hoping that improvement will be made.
