Metro Vigan Inn - A Budget Hotel for Tourists and Backpackers

The Facade of the new Budget Hotel  called Metro Vigan Inn
The Facade of the new Budget Hotel  called Metro Vigan Inn 
It was truly a blessing to be invited into a Road Trip to Vigan where I got to visit the province for the first time and of course indulge in a wondrous travel experience! I have to be honest with you; I never imagined that I will be invited into this kind of event, but lo and behold, I did. Of course, that's only possible with the grace from above, and to somehow share that blessing to you, friends, let me document our experience in Vigan by first starting with this post about Metro Vigan Inn.

About the Road Trip to Vigan
This two-day trip was prepared and organized by the management of Metro Vigan Inn, with the purpose of showcasing the newly opened in-house cafe called Metro Vigan Cafe and its line up of Asian Ilocandia Cuisine. We'll get to that on my succeeding blog posts, but for now we will focus on the budget-traveler's hotel.

Alright, now that you already know quite a number of things about Metro Vigan Inn, let's start exploring the rooms!

The first one will be the Standard Double (Php 1,300) or the Garage Room (good for those traveling with their private cars):

Yeah, I know what you are thinking, and partly you are right. Metro Vigan Inn saw the potential and tehn purchased this property when it was still "what you have in mind". Afterwards, the management started renovating the place, and establishing a new brand.

Fortunately, the management was indeed successful in that feat because I find the Garage room more than decent with a tone of vibrance!

Now, let's take the stairs and visit all the other remaining rooms.

Note: This is the room assigned to me and my new blogger friend Arem of Geejay Travel Log.

Upon entering the room, I was pleased with the sight! Right there and then, I knew that I will have a comfy and great stay here in this inn! And I was right!

As you may notice, the room exudes an air of neatness and comfort. The beds look inviting enough, and were given effort to really have that very welcoming appearance. Frankly, I never had any problems with the bed, and in fact I had one of the best sleeps here for this year (although fatigue and exhaustion were partly the culprits).

Metro Vigan Inn Bathroom
The bathroom of the Superior Triple Room
The bathroom wasn't much of an appeal to me (especially that I'm really big fan of amazing bathrooms), but it was more than decent enough! It got some hot water for a relaxing shower, and water pressure is really good. Note, however, that only soaps are provided in the rooms, so don't forget to bring your own toiletries.

Deluxe Twin || P1,700

This room is more visually appealing, and looks cozier than the one we stayed. Hence, this is the room that I suggest you choose.

Superior Twin || P1,500

For non-couple travelers, this is good for you!

Superior Double ||  P1,500

I will no longer wonder why this one is called Superior Double and the other one is just Standard. You see the vivid difference too, right? And yes, you only need to pay a few hundreds, P200 to be exact, to upgrade your room to this. Anyway, I suggest this room for couple travelers (or to those comfortable to sleep close with another)!

Backpackers Room || P600 per person

If you are traveling with a big group, this room will be really ideal for you guys! Each room has 3 double deck beds. Do the math, and you'll get max of 6 people in the room. I'll tell you it's really cozy and comfy, you wouldn't feel like you are just paying P600 for it!

As indicated on the rates above, all the rooms included a complimentary breakfast in the Metro Vigan Cafe! Hence, the price will really be worth it!

I'll be posting here in this blog what you can find here in this cafe, and my-my you will really love the food here!
