The place is peaceful with very accommodating staff. Breakfast is ok but we need more coffee, if possible brewed not 3 n 1. Please don't divide the sachet into 2-3 portion to fill up small cups.

Awful, Stressful, It Was A Nightmare!”

I booked a room in Balai Carmela on September 14, 2018 as I will be taking my PhilSAT in CSU Tuguegarao City. My family of 4 traveled early morning on September 22, 2018 for 6 hours from Ilocos Norte to Tuguegarao with the hopes of being able to relax as soon as we reach the said hotel. When we were finally at Balai Carmela, we were all tired and looking forward to lay on our beds. I approach the receptionist and show her my mobile voucher/ confirmation that I have reserved a booking through as I have been doing for 5 years now. Unfortunately, the receptionist informed me that the room I booked was already occupied by a walk-in. I asked her what happened, she immediately called her manager and informed me that the best they can do is to offer 2 adjacent rooms with the same price as the previous booking. I would have considered it but I realized that I am with my HUSBAND, my FATHER and my FEMALE COUSIN. Of course, my husband and I would stay in the same room, but they were

Friendly Staff, Clean Rooms”

For a solo traveler, Balai Carmela is a bit "far" from the city location-wise. Also traveling is a bit of a challenge because the place is a bit far from the high way. But if you ask politely, the staff will be kind enough to give you a ride to the "sakayan" area. That being said, the rooms are very clean and the staff are very nice. The location is very quiet, perfect for stay-cations.

Room is spacious. The staff are very accommodating and helpful. It is difficult to go around the town because the tricycles charge you extra when you insist for them to go up the uphill dirt road. otherwise, you end up trekking that small climb which is a pain during the heat and rain. They don't offer their own transport service to the city either which would have been more convenient. Breakfast is okay. Water pressure is ok and bathroom is spacious.

Good space but secluded property. ”

It is very much suggested to have personal transportation if you choose to stay here. It’s like 150m from highway and tricycle won’t make it through the bumpy route. It can be scary, as there’s no street lights at night. Some compliment items need to be requested - bottled water, elec. kettle, bath tools. We requested for No Pork breakfast but the kitchen was not ready and can only serve egg. There was payment issue with Agoda and Balai Carmela. Better pay cash to the hotel. But in fairness with our stay, airport transfer was of good service, the owner whom we met was kind.
