Review of RF Aniceto Mansion in Vigan, Ilocos Sur

My niece and I stayed for 2 days and 1 night in Vigan as part of our DIY 4D/3N Itinerary of Laoag-Pagudpud-Vigan Tour.  Like what I have said in my previous post, we went to Vigan without any reservation to any hotels or inns so we're up for the adventure in finding one since there's Binatbatan Festival going on that day.

Actually, we 1st went to Granpa’s Inn and Restaurant but they are fully booked. Thanks to the hotel staff who phoned other hotels if there are vacancies and thankfully RF ANICETO MANSION has a vacant room for 2.

There are many hotels or inns where you can stay in Vigan City and Aniceto Mansion is one.

Aniceto Mansion Vigan CityAniceto Mansion is a huge old mansion built during the Spanish era converted into a hotel to accommodate guests. It is strategically situated at the heart of Vigan City where Vigan Heritage Village area is located.

A friendly staff entertained us when we inquired and one led us to the second floor to see the room first.

We got room no. 9 located at the 2nd floor and the room is equipped with air-conditioner, a television, telephone, CR/bathroom, basic toiletries and more. Our room costs P1,700/night good for 2 pax with breakfast.

Some photos inside the house and our room.

You have choice of longganisa, corned beef or fried bangus with rice, coffee, and fruits.

1. Nice location. It is located very near Plaza Burgos and Vigan Cathedral
2. Rate is reasonable
3. Few walks away from Vigan Heritage Village, Plaza Burgos, Plaza Salcedo, eateries and stores.
4. Old Spanish house ambiance inside
5. Nice room equipped with basic room amenities
6. Friendly and accommodating staff at the lobby area

1. The bathroom door  in our  room is very hard to open if you lock it.
2. My pillow smells like cigarette.. yay
3. The staff in the Taverna didn't even bother to open the electric fan when we're having our breakfast
4. Didn't see any hooks or hanger inside the bathroom where we can hang our towels and clothes.

NOTE:~~Overall, we have no major bad experience while we stay there so I can recommend this to anyone. Just make sure to see the room first so you can tell if you want to stay or not.
