Stayed for 2 nights here with friends and since its late December, we were the only ones. We were given a big room which can fit at least 10 because the room connects to an attic and another room. We also had set breakfast here and it was really good though a bit pricey. Excellent vantage point but going here esp by vehicle can be a challenge since its elevated due to the proximity to the hillside. This B&B is about 1.5 hrs away from town Center of Kiangan and 1 hr away from Lagawe town which is a transit point for those wanting to go to Baguio.

About seven hours away by bus from Manila, Kiangan is the cradle of Ifugao race and civilization. Perhaps the most romantic place to stay while in Kiangan is at Ibulao Bed and Breakfast - a quaint mountain top retreat house of lovely couple Drs. Toto and Tess Kalugdan. The bed and breakfast place is actually a compound composed of the couple’s main house, villas, and café. In previous lifetimes, the spot had actually been a coffee plantation and a Japanese military camp. I got the chance to stay at the main house. Though it looks like a modern brick house outside, the moment I stepped inside, I was floored. From the sala, living room, entertainment area, dining room, kitchen to the rooms, I was in awe for the artistry, exoticness, beautiful mess and warmth all over the place. The house marries the traditional and the modern. I was smitten with the shiny wooden floor, high ceiling, colorful throw pillows, Ifugao chess set, bulol table, gecko chairs, wood carvings and figurines mostly designed by Dr. Toto. And when I saw the glass window with a panoramic view of verdant mountains and the river, my heart skipped a beat. The scene was ethereal, almost like a dream. I also got to see the rooms in other villas and some common areas. They have a homey feel and the wood works in every nook and cranny were simply creative. The place is quite ideal for small team-building activities, intimate gatherings or family getaways. Another stand-out is the set gourmet meal they serve at the cafe. I was satisfied with the Robusta coffee, home-made longganisa, pako omelette, side vegetables, and fresh fruits they served for breakfast - so hearty, healthy and yummy. More than the warm welcome and hospitality of Dr. Toto and his staff, nice bed and great food, serene and cozy environment, I think I will miss more their friendly dog Cookie.

Full Review: http://www.cornersandcrannies.com/a-rare-indigenous-affair-the-ifugao-ballihung/ The view was beautiful and it had easy access. The owners were very kind and hospitable. The home owners had an eye for design, evident in the unusual construction of the house. Instead of blowing up the rock formations attached to the mountain, they integrated the beds and other furniture around it.

Stayed for a while to attend a friend's wedding. The owner was hospitable and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable with interesting tribal decor. Breakfast was good and the coffee was one of the best I've ever tasted! Will definitely choose to stay here the next time I go to Ifugao. Note: they have an incredibly steep driveway, be prepared to huff and puff your way up... or push your vehicle up.
