Pamulinawen Hotel
Ranked #9 of 12 Hotels in Laoag
Reviewed April 17, 2017

Booked this hotel due to the unavailability of more popular hotels in Laoag. Location is in a town adjacent to Laoag. No nearby establishments where you can eat so either you eat at the hotel's restaurant or drive 10 mins to Robinsons.

Hotel room is spacious and clean but the toilet has no tissue holder. Small thing but it's the attention to details that matter.

The breakfast is not what you expect for a hotel that charges P4500 (about $100) per night for a regular room. Minimal choices and the servers control the servings size. The servers seems afraid to talk to customers and speak in a rather low voice. Hotel should train the servers to improve customer experience.

The rates are rather high if you consider the location. No WIFI in rooms. Again, for this kind of room rate, wifi inside the rooms should be present.

Pool is okay but my impression is that the water is not circulated, contributing to the hazy appearance of the pool.

Everything here is clean. But sad to say they have no connecting rooms. The staff are polite and accomodating. Here's the bad part. You have request everything. from extra pillow, toothbrush, bedroom slippers, blower and etc... the food is just average. the pool is clean but nothing special

A little bit pricy compared to the other hotels around. But the rooms are very much spacious. We are a group of 3 and stayed at the cheapest room they can offer. It is a room with two single bed, with a wide area wher you can set up two extra beds.

The room was nice. Good lightings, enough for us to work in the evening. Very quite corridors. Relaxing view outside. Got a nice pool.

The only downfall i see (aside from the room rates) is that we feel all alone inside the big building. No other guest maybe during our stay.

The location of the hotel is along the main road. The lobby is spacious with WIFI. The front desk personnel was helpful and courteous. The elevator is hot. The hallway where our rooms are located is hot. Our rooms were spacious. There was a tv with cable. NO WIFI in the room. The tv has no channel guide. There is complimentary water daily as well as coffee. The bathroom is spacious with the following amenities: toothbrush, soap and shampoo. The water heater is disastrous, when its hot it can burn and the water gets cold for a very long time so bathing takes time to finish. The water drains so slowly. The floor is slippery good thing a mat was available. There is no hair dryer. The glasses were not washed daily. The sink probably is not also cleaned because you can still see the toothpaste stain left by the guest.The airconditioning unit is loud though it is cold. Pool is small and no chairs aroundi to put your towels or robe in. The breakfast has no variety and is cooked per order. Breakfast is not buffet. The bed is double bed quite comfortable. There is a plastic cover over the mattress so it feels hot when you lie down.

Room Tip: Read reviews. Reviews maybe subjective, experience is still best.
