Designed and constructed by Arch. Jerry Buenaventura, the building plan passed the scrutiny of the Vigan Conservation Council which is tasked by the local government to ensure that each building within the Heritage Zone features the Vigan Spanish look.
The hotel sits on the remains of the original structure that was the home of the Amor family. The destruction of the Amor home is not generally known. But the remaining brick walls that serve as silent witnesses of what had transpired are now safely restored in the new structure in their original configuration.
The ground floor of the hotel includes the reception area and lobby, the dining area or Comedor, the office or Oficina, the guest storage area, and kitchen facilities.
The building is fully equipped with fire protection systems and CCTV cameras for security reasons.
There is uninterrupted power supply because the hotel has a 350 KVA generator that can drive all lights and air conditioning equipment to provide guests with a convenient stay even during brownouts. It also has a cistern that can supply water for a week in case of failure of the local water district.
An ample kitchen fitted with modern facilities ensure a hygienic place for food preparation.
There is one (1) parking slot for each room thus providing convenience for guests who may be bringing their own transport vehicles.
The hotel is located at the corner of Burgos and Gomez Streets. It is a very accessible place from the highway and is within walking distance to the most prominent local tourist sites such as Fr. Jose Burgos’ house, the National Museum, the Capitol, the City Hall, Plaza Salcedo where the light show is conducted every evening, the Archbishop’s Palace, the Vigan Cathedral, Plaza Burgos beside the Empanadahan, Calle Crisologo, the famed boulevard studded with centuries-old Vigan stone houses, and the SyQuia Mansion.
