There is not a luxury hotel in Banaue. It is a backpacker village. The Halfway Lodge is clean and conveniently located in this mountain village. The staff is very helpful with tours and transportation.

Me and my friend stayed at Halfway for one night - in a room with two single beds and shared bathroom. It was okay. We also had breakfast there twice and dinner once and the food was totally okay. If your expectations aren't super-high and you're on a budget it's a good place to stay for a night or two.

We stayed here one night. Cons: The room was tiny and beyond basic, no power outlets in the room. There was no toilet paper in bathrooms, but charged you to buy a roll at reception. Bathroom looked like they hadn't been washed for a month! In my experience checkout is usually 10am, when we were leaving for breakfast in the...

The staff here are so nice and offers a great service, we felt so welcome here. They are always ready to help, guide or just talk. The food is cheap and their chocolate pancake is amazing. The view over the city and the mountains are so pretty, and goes great with breakfast and a cup of tea. They have wifi...

The rooms are small and dirty, crawling with cockroaches. Huge ones at that. The shower is unsafe - live wires hanging out. Actually got a shock while trying to adjust the water flow. No power outlets in the rooms - they want you to pay for charging at the reception. Lousy food. They tried so hard to sell us a...

We didn't stay there but one of their employe: Solomun sold us (ripped us off) a tour and didn't even showed up.. Banaue and Batad are beautiful so don't waste your time with those guys who are trying to ruin your stays.

We ordered Fried Chicken and Pancit. The food taste good but I would make a comment about the staff especially the counter person. They were all friendly and accommodating and most of all honest. My companion forgot his bag that contains his camera. Fortunately Kacelyn the cashier sent me an sms to inform me of the forgotten bag. We went...

I must admit the view from the restaurant and our room were spectacular. The view overlooking the valley and huge school and even road leading to Batad were simply amazing. But good view alone does not make a hotel. Checkout time is unreasonably at 9am. They expect everybody to be out on their foot exploring the town and rice terraces...

We didn't stayed here, because these guys just wanna sell you tours and bus tickets and that for they are lying! We were told that we will get a newer bus for return, but it was a lie! They also told us, that we need a guide for Batad, what was a lie too.

The food was good, big serving I must say. The price of 120php for everything is fair enough. One thing that i just noticed is the customer service. Very poor in terms of assistance and hospitality. You don't tell your customers to "sit here" especially if you are on a group tour consisting of 5 vans and the like. I...
