nice place to stay for a few day”

Charlie the touristic guide , the view , food

We really enjoy our stay at halfway lodge , Charlie is the best guide in town ask for him , he know a lot about the cultural and the history of the town and around , we went to hapao and batad rice terrasse with him and we enjoy it !! The room was clean , the staff was really kind and helpful !! The food was good and you can dinner with a nice view of banaue rice terrasse. The only thing that was less good is that there is no electric plugs in the room to charge your phone or camera battery but it's not a big deal because at the office they will charge it for you with pleasure.

great view, friendly staff”

overlooking the area, affordable, close to the center

1 TV at the Lobby, no power plugs in the rooms (too much abuse by Backpackers?), closes at 8pm (as all stores), 10pm is curfew. This is the result of the Mayors, who want no noise/troubles in the village. The hotel is almost innocent. Charging is available (free for guests!), the food is affordable and as good as other places that was higher rated! The Ifugaos are a shy folk, but after a small nice talk the are so friendly and helpful. At Halfway Lodge the most journeys/trips start. Charlie, a relative of the family can guide you very well. We paid PHP 1700.

Extremely helpful and friendly staff!”

helpful staff, own tour guide, good rooms

As said before the staff is extremely helpful in case you have questions about touring the region or your onward journey to sagada or back to manila. Don't go to the tourist office near the bus station, they charge very high prices. Halfway Inn provided us with a cheaper, but very experienced guide who led us on a 2-day trek through cambulo and batad (ask for charlie), truly a great experience! The rooms are very clean, also the bathrooms. The hotel serves food to reasonable prices, but the quality could be improved.

Convenient location - shame about the powerpoints”

Location; helpful for tours, onward travel etc; great views

Good location; the shuttle bus takes you to its door. Good for organising tours and bus tickets. Great if you've treated yourself to the private-bath room, with a fantastic hot shower, but the share bathroom was a big step down in standard. Nice valley views out the back from the restaurant and the terrace. Biggest bugbear: the lack of powerpoints. This is an issue all over Banaue, not just here, so electricity supply must be a premium in this area. But It's a tough call for today's travellers to not have access to powerpoints, and charging 20 pesos to charge up guests' phones or cameras went down like a rat sandwich.

Very happy ”

Nice big, clean room with ensuite, which I hadn't been expecting, I'm not sure if this is standard or we were upgraded. The staff were really nice. WiFi worked well in our room. The location is great, very short walk from the bus and close by restaurants. They have lockers for bag storage if you go to batad (which you should), which they charge 50 pesos per bag. It wasn't a per night charge which was nice as we went to batad for 2 nights.

Location, pretty friendly personel, great veranda, hot water.

Our stay was overall good. You can enjoy great views from the rooms below dining area. Veranda is also something good to mention. Owners are helpfull. We were warned about guys who try to sell overprices tripps around. Be carefull as these guys are not licences guides and they ask even tripple the standard price. I got the feeling that we were warned because we booked via agoda but the samy guy was walking around every morning. Food is pretty bad and I do not recommend it. One of the worst we had. Overall I would come back but I wouldt eat there.

Clean but very basic”

location , good views

Mixed feelings , pleasant staff but one night in very basic old fashioned rooms was enough and by Philippine standards costs for these are high. We booked 3 rooms , no hot showers in any , no electric sockets in any room . One of our party had to pay at reception to have a cellphone recharged . Lack of basics expected within the price means any future visits to Banaue we will search online more carefully. Recommendations to friends will carry warnings.

No power ports, extra charges for everything”

The view, the room size, the restaurant

Stayed 2 nights. Checkin is from 9am, but that also means checkout is by 9am. There are no power points in your room, so if you want to charge your devices you need to do so from the restaurant. Need to store your bags after you checkout because the bus leaves at 8pm and you must checkout by 9am? Pay the fees. The door is regularly shut before the stupid 9pm curfew in town. There are better and cheaper places. Breakfast is poor and overpriced. Lunch and dinner are OK. I am coming back to Banaue and I most certainly WILL NOT stay here.
