I've been to Balay da Blas for several times already. The last visit was by far the most enjoyable. We occupied the room at the top (3rd) floor. It is a very spacious room, a family of six would be most comfortable living there. The room has been refurbished, a lot better looking and feeling than 2-3 years ago. We... More

An old ancestral house with a very modern bathrooms and refurbished rooms. Their location is not centrally located but tricycles know where it is. Very good place to stay their authentic longganisa for bfast and coffee with mascovado sugar is to die for. Amiable staff always willing to help.

Staff service and Security are second to none. The only thing we had difficulty was the parking space. We were forced to park our vehicle in the street front... More

Booked a family room last minute and was surprised at how huge the rooms were. Breakfast orders are taken the day before; if you're not in the area by 8:30 AM, they will personally go to your room to remind you about their breakfast time. Only con is this hotel isn't suitable for people who have a hard time using... More

Went to Laoag for a company outing - it's been years since I was in the Ilocos region. Stayed at Plaza del Norte Hotel but had lunch at Balay da Blas. We had bagnet and three more dishes. All were delicious. The finale was dessert: banana-sweet potato with hot molasses. I forgot what it was called but it was certainly... More

Location was ok, it is located beside Saramsam restaurant which is itself located in the corner. Value for money was average, very poor parking area though, be prepared to park outside.

Breakfast is complementary if you stay, one free breakfast per night of lodging. Then late night, I tried the dragon fruit ice cream and ube ice cream as well. The first one was great, the latter not something to write home about. Saramsam's Poque-poque is not for the virginal palate but a real Ilocano treat indeed.
