I definitely recommend Rakdell Inn because of its perfect location, homey comfortable rooms and commendable service. My trip in Catanduanes is one of the memorable one for I fell in love with the place and complemented with a good stay in this hotel. I will surely be back and stay in Rakdell Inn! 🙂

I stayed here with my Filipina girlfriend. We arrived without a reservation and felt like a change from Midtown Inn where we had stayed previously, 5 nights before and a couple of times in the last years. We were shown to the room. The towels had to be brought later and there was no toilet paper either. The room was ok. It needs decorating, but the shower worked well. There was a conference going on at the top floor so the restaurant was closed. At around 9 or ten pm I could hear music playing and thought it must be on the top floor where the conference was. I soon ralised after opening the balcony door it was coming from across the street. The Big Apple Music bar was thumping full bore music until 3am. Yes 3 in the morning!! It was so loud the walls were vibrating. We both got hardly any sleep. I mentioned this to the receptionist who said she had made a complaint to the Big Apple Music venue as other guests had also complained. It is fairly obvious they will not cease. Please don't bother staying here unless you are a very heavy sleeper. One night was enough. We should've stayed with the Midtown Inn.

The RakDell Inn is a 4-floor family owned hotel in Virac - the largest town on the island of Catanduanes. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. . The room was affordable, clean, spacious and had well-working A/C, hot water, and free WiFi. We tried the restaurant on the top floor, and were amazed how yummy the food was! Food is also available through room service. They have a big room and terrace for functions on the top floor. We had a couple of brown-outs during our stay, which is normal for Catanduanes, but the hotel has it's own power generator. The Wifi was a bit slow, but that is also normal for the island, as it does not have a land-line connection to the main land. Overall we were very happy, and are looking forward to our next stay.

I stayed here 2nd time, last 2013 and follows November 2015 and it was quite warm, i loved the place. The bedrooms are comfy and so the bathrooms. The food is yummy "lutong pinoy" 👍 The staff seemed friendly and welcoming the premises is very clean. The location is great perfect for getting around via public transport and main shopping centres , we'd recommend this for anyone travelling to the island of virac catanduanes. Would definitely come again.!

Located in the town center, it's near pretty much everything from the church, van/bus terminal, tricycle terminal, pasalubong center and Catanduanes Museum. Staff were very helpful. WiFi is only free when you go to the restuarant on the top floor or common areas.
