Since Vigan is known for its Spanish colonial houses, it is best to stay in a hotel which will give you an ‘old and rustic’ ambiance, right?
When I asked my travel blogger friends for recommendations on where to stay in Vigan, majority suggested for Grandpa’s Inn. It is just located near the famous Calle Crisologo. Most of the hotels in Vigan have expensive rates. I saw some pictures and read reviews in several travel sites and yeah, I’m sold! I’ll stay there!
I arrived at the Partas Vigan Station and took a tricycle ride to Grandpa’s Inn. I called a day before and the receptionist told me that they’re not expecting many guests. When I arrived at the lobby area, I didn’t want to leave.
The cheapest room is a shared ordinary fan room with common bathroom (Php690). This specific room looked a bit ‘modern’ so I moved to the Ordinary Fan Room with toilet and bath (Php900). The complimentary breakfast and cable tv is a good plus too. I need to watch my telenovelas!
Some rooms of Grandpa’s Inn are under renovation. I felt at home in this room. Due to the hospitality of the staff, I felt like a family guest.
There are three restaurants within the vicinities of Grandpa’s Inn: Cafe Uno (Coffee Shop), Kusina Felecitas and Uno Grille (Outdoor). Cafe Uno served as my ‘dining room’ for two nights. I will write a separate review about it.
