        Prime location, excellent staff, hands-on & uber friendly owner”

        If you are looking to stay in a family-owned, ancestral property with the comforts of modern living, right smack beside Calle Crisologo, then look no further than Hotel Mercante. When I booked this place, all I was looking for was a pet friendly inn that has parking and close to Calle Crisologo. I was not expecting much as I remembered my last Vigan trip when we stayed in this old ancestral home that was not only dark, gloomy and musty inside but also a bit far from the town center that it was necessary to take a trike or calesa or your own vehicle to get to Crisologo and the Plaza. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Hotel Mercante. As it turned out, Hotel Mercante is less than 10 meters away from Calle Crisologo. Its location is perfect for sightseeing without having to be bothered by the troves of tourists plying the very famous street. The one thing that can surpass the location in terms of why this hotel should be on top of anyone’s list is its owner & staff. I have never met a successful business owner as friendly, helpful and humble as Sydney. He is a treasure trove of information about Vigan and its surrounding towns and was very open to give recommendations about everything I inquired about from restaurants, to furniture maker, to coffee bean supplier to how to store fresh eggs I bought from his farm. His hotel serves fresh brewed coffee, blue lemonade and cold water all day and the coffee is to die for! I had to buy 2kg from his supplier which his staff graciously arranged for me. You can also buy fresh organic eggs straight from Sydney’s farm at half the price you would pay for in Manila. You just need to inform the staff 2 days before departure if you need more than what they have in stock. I have been quite quirky with my questions and requests during my stay and I have nothing but praises for the courtesy & friendliness of the staff. They have tried their best to accommodate all of them to the best of their ability without bat

        A Gem in the center of Vigan !”

        I would recommend this place to everyone . The rooms are clean and spacious. The location is just on the next street of Celle Crisologo. Plaza Salcedo is just walking distance and all the good restaurants are near. There a grocery store in front of the hotel. Everything in the place is thoughtfully placed with available free books and bicycle to borrow. They even have free flowing coffee, iced tea (with real tea i think but still sweet and refreshing nonetheless), and water at the lobby. The staff is nice and the owner will entertain your questions and is very amiable. They also sell vigan longganisa and bagnet so you would not have to look for it outside. This was really convenient even with 2 seniors. Will definitely stay here again in the future. 😁

        Maria Clara at Ibarra Feels at Mercante”

        What we loved about the place: - Unlimited water and coffee refills - Heavy breakfast - Super close to Calle Crisologo, we were able to take pictures of the street with not much people early in the morning. - Close to restaurants and tourist spots - Loved that it looks like an old building outside but the hotel is modern inside. - You can borrow bike and rent books - Friendly staff Review Points: - Need to work on organizing their staff. When we checked in, it looked like all of the employees were present to assist us. It looked chaotic. They were probably interns so the check-in process wasn’t smooth. - Need more parking lots or a specific person who handles parking of guests should be always present to avoid conflicts between guests. Overall out experience was good. I’d definitely book again in the future.
