Amazing view from room and restaurant, quiet place in the middle of nowhere.”
No mobile signal, no wifi = best place to stay out of work! You cannot expect 5* hotel in place like this, even walking to this hotel can be advanteru in case of rain. But it's worth to go there and stay.
best breakfast with a view ever ! ”
(+++) fantastic view over the rice terraces (from both the restaurant and the rooms), good and cheap food, adorable staff, and excellent traditional massages available ; can also help you to find a guide to hike and a porter to carry your bag to/from the jeepney/tricycle drop point (20 mn walking) (-) Basic rooms (with or without private bathrooms), with thin matress and poor light, and nothing to fix your clothes, but you don't care cause you just sleep there and go out
Travel between the 1st and 3rd week of June wherein the views of the Rice terraces are impressive”
Do not expect much in Batad like internet/network since there is no signal, we stayed there for 2nights because we planned to trek the rice terraces and the Tappiya waterfalls. This Inn offers a 5 star majestic views of the rice terraces, Get a room that is on the 2nd floor, room number 1 and 2 offers a window facing the perfect view . You can also enjoy having breakfast, lunch, and dinner or just sipping to your brewed coffee while enjoying the view of the terraces. We suggest to take a picture on their laundry area on the 2nd floor it offers a fulldeck view of the rice terraces. Hillside Inn would be the perfect place to stay at if you are after the view of the rice terraces and do not care much of the services/amenities
By far the only inn that offers a full eye level view of the majestic Batad rice Terraces”
We stayed there for 2 nights last June 15 to June 17, and we were very lucky that we were only a few guests checked in, it was lean season and the rice terraces were a mixture of golden yellow and green and was very majestic and impressive to look at, We were on the 2nd floor which was room number 1 and 2 and both rooms offers windows of the rice terraces, the room is pretty basic with pillows and blankets, it was a little disappointing because there were cobwebs in our room, and the heater on the shower did not work at times, you also have to pay 20pesos each time you charge your phone and 30pesos for charging your camera, the food was very basic I did not enjoyed how the chicken adobo was cooked, it was too watery and bland, and the pansit was too salty when it was cooked. The only food that we enjoyed were the simple rice with egg and ham. If you plan to stay in Batad, do not give high expectation on wifi or network because the entire area is secluded and there is no signal.
Location and price is excellent for our purpose which is to see Batad Rice Terraces However with a few cheap additions to the rooms like hooks where you can hang your clothes and things will improve things a lot Cleanliness of toilets will also greatly improve the place
The view from the Inn is beautiful. But you have to walk trough the mountains for half an hour with your luggage. The rooms had no aircon or fan and the shower and toilet where dirty. There is nothing nearby. The beds where alright.
Exceptional location but there's no service hospitality or warmth from the staff”
It has probably the best view of the Batad Rice Terraces.. BUT, where's the hospitality? I never felt any warmth or welcoming vibe from the staff. They don't smile and it seems that having people in their midst is a pain on their asses. Also, you have to pay to charge your gadgets and the cleanliness of the room needs something to be desired. Seriously, they need to hire staffs that are more welcoming. Filipino hospitality = NOT FOUND
Okay for one night ”
Food was kind of expensive. Bed linen and pillows had a really strong weird smell. They dont provide towels, you have to pay for it and the washroom and shower wasnt really clean. But the view was amazing
Awesome location and good food”
Location is prime - the view is probably the best in whole Batad!! Room rates are cheap and the food in their restaurant is very good, too! Staff could be a bit more friendly and bathrooms could be a bit cleaner, however, all in all a good place with great value for money!
daylight robbery priced food & no hot water”
The worst: There aren't any restaurants in Batad village so, when you need a meal you have to go back to your hotel and order their food to eat. BUT Price for food is like day light robbery. For just a simple fried noodle with bits of chicken, it's USD5. Strongly suggest you guys to bring your own food or instant noodles to avoid being 'robbed' by the hotel. Price for room is quite reasonable, however, it was raining in the evening and the whole village had no electricity and we had to sleep in the dark without lights or fan. Which is okay. But the weather is cold and the hotel don't provide any hot or warm water for shower! It was quite a bad experience. Hotel owners and staff were friendly and the view of the batad terraces is amazing
Wow what a location and view!!”
Awesome location (must be willing/able to trek in)! Fantastic views of the Batad rice terraces. Super friendly staff and guides to learn about and trek/ tour the area. Food was very good and very reasonably priced! Hot water was a little spotty / sketchy but showering after a day of trekking is all we needed. The massage ladies did a great job on our sore muscles. All so reasonably priced- we would come back to this place again if we make it back to the Philippines. The peacefulness of this area and the rich culture is a must visit!!
NO towels provided - YOU HAVE TO RENT IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE; NO electric sockets - YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR EACH GADGET TYPE (20 -Cellphone, 50 - Laptop); NO lock from the inside; and SHOWER HEATER NOT WORKING. MEALS - EXPENSIVE AS HELL. NOT EVEN GOOD FOOD. We had to split our ordered lunch because it's so pricey. We asked them if they could put it in the fridge for later. Come dinner time, we requested our leftover food to be reheated for dinner. We ordered rice to pair with our leftover food. The food arrived. They brought us two cups of rice and cold-ass leftover food. They didn't even reheat our food. THIS IS THE MOST INHOSPITABLE ACCOMMODATION I'VE ENCOUNTERED. The only thing good about this is their location relative to Batad Terraces. I booked 3D2N, I checked out after staying overnight. I really felt like I was scammed. You don't need to stay longer than a night in this INN.
The shared bathroom could do with some upgrading.
Warm and comfortable accomodation”
The rooms have a nice window view of the rice terraces.
Had an amazing stay at Hillside Inn. Room with a stunning view over the rice terraces, comfy and clean. A hot shower and a really cool balcony area to eat in the restaurant with a stunning view again. Best thing about this place were the people. Magellan and his family were just Awesome, super friendly and helpful and just lovely people. I'll definitely be back!
good view but bad service”
the place has an awesome view of the rice fields!It is the best thing of this hostel!the room was very basic but ok!the shower was acceptable but the toilet was quite bad!the food was a bit expensive and not very good and the personnel was not very friendly
Great place, Great View”
Hillside Inn is perfect for nature lovers, travelers and adventurers who wants a place to stay. It has good food, humble tour guides, happy owners, friendly cats and dogs lying around and has a perfect view of batad rice terraces
My girlfriend and I went to Banaue with our Taiwanese friend. Our stay at Hillside Inn was very fun. It wasn't the best inn in the world, but the staff made it worth it. Roberson served as our guide and our friend during our stay. Even his sister Odette was so friendly. The food doesn't get served immediately, so order earlier. They gave us bananas when we told them we've been waiting for a while. Finally, the view in our room, was so beautiful. You have to see it!
The best hotel in Batad with spectacular view”
If you want to spend your trip in Batad, choose this Hotel. It has a VERY NICE view of the whole Batad Rice Terraces that other hotels can't offer. And the price was very affordable too! I think many travelers made their booking here and so, the atmosphere in the hotel lobby/restaurant was so great. Sometimes, the guides who are staying here before they proceed for tomorrow's hike, Do some guitar performances and it was great to jam with them.
In front of the rice fields terraces...but that's it...”
The location is great, just in front of the terraces, which is also the view from the room. The lady from the staff is nice, she offered us some vegetables. There is absolutely nothing included, so you have to pay for EVERYTHING: towel, soap or shampoo, even hot water (to drink) and electricity (to charge your devices). It's makes this place expensive for what you've got. The room is horrible, just next to a new annex under construction, which means noise from early morning until sunset. The whole building is made of thin wood, you can hear everything from the other rooms, and the best part is when it rains, there is a leak in the gutter, which leads to water dropping on the metal roof... It's also really cold at night and there is just a thin blanket. Obviously there is no power outlet. If you can, go somewhere else...
