Balai Tinay was the perfect guesthouse! Located right in the heart of Legaspi City Albay - it very accessible and easy to get to. The guesthouse itself is spotless - unbelievably clean and well maintained along with absolutely stunning. The rooms are quite, clean and comfortable. The common areas are also stunning with a rooftop that has an amazing view of Mt Mayon! The staff are very friendly, super helpful and made our stay very comfortable. Highly recommend!

Stayed overnight last November 17-18. One of the best in Legazpi! Price is very sulit. Accommodating staff and owner. Nice ambiance and good location. Will definitely be back! Staff is knowledgeable on the area, they recommended a lot of place to eat and places to visit around the area!

Very Good Experience. Friendly and welcoming staff, very helpful as well. Comfortable and budget-friendly room. Cozy ambiance. Clean. Cons: just a bit out of the highway and requires a bit of a walk. The room was small.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in the Balai Tinay Guesthouse, having come to this region of the Philippines to visit Mount Mayon and view the whale sharks of donsol. PROS * Hospitality - the owner was the highlight of this place. Extremely friendly bloke who really took interest in our experience of the area. He was able to organise some things for us, including a ATV tour and a private taxi to donsol (as we couldn't get there early enough on public transportation to make the first boats of the morning). * Room - spotless rooms. A bit basic but had everything you needed. * Viewing area - on the third floor there was a balcony with views over mount mayon. * Hot water worked * Air conditioning - worked * Location - Fantastic. Was within walking distance to the main drag of Legazpi but still on quiet backstreet so there was not any traffic noise. Only cost 50PP for a tricycle to airport (which was 3km away) * Breakfast was offered for an additional 150PP and it wasn't too bad CONS * Wifi a bit slow in rooms Overall we had a great stay and would recommend it to others.

Stayed for 3 nights. They stay true to their slogan. It feels like your home in Legazpi. Ambience is perfect for a cozy and relaxing vacation. The owner, Mang Jo, is very accomodating and is really proud of his home. Had a chat with him where he shared some history of their guesthouse. This is definitely highly recommended when you are visiting Albay. Place is near Albay Central School and Biggs Diner Old Albay District. Note: They have a refreshment corner. Purified water is free. And even coffee.

When in Albay, staying in a guest house is a good option. Our stay at Balai Tinay made our Bicol trip a very relaxing one. Location is accessible to public transport to where ever you may want to go. It is also near a Catholic church where you can hear mass on a Sunday. The guest house itself is very clean and Mount Mayon can be seen from a distance. The owners Mr. and Mrs. Marbella also welcomed us personally and that also made our stay very comfortable. Thank you also to the very energetic Jerson who made us feel at home and even offered us coffee every time we come from our escapade..

Great Family attic room. Homey ambience. Nearby airport. Peaceful lication yet only a short walk to the okd albay where cafes, restaurants, groceries and main Rizal St is located. Warm and cozy ambience at shared lounge or sala where you can meet and socialize with other guests. Relaxing sound of the water in the lounge is quite nice.
