Quaint but comfy place to stay after a long and winding drive. Altho located at the city center, she still provides a calm ambiance with good food and friendly staff complemented by the relaxed support of the hands-on owners.
The only spoiler was the view of a presidentiable name painted on a locals home.
Otherwise, our room had a great view.
Defnitly will be back if i had the chance.

We booked by Facebook message and email. The hotel is very centrally located.

Our room was basic but clean. The bathroom needs updating but the hot shower worked well. We had a mountain view mainly for road noise reduction than for a view. The room windows had insect screens which obscured the view and were not that clean.

There is a great restaurant and common area with fantastic views over Banaue and it serves good food. We met several other travelers as it’s a social place, other guests but also many people who come just for the food.

There are no power points in the room but you can charge devices in the restaurant/common area.

We found the staff to be very helpful but the information provided about onward travel lacked consistency.

We hired a tricycle for a day tour, from the hotel, and were very pleased with the service.

This is a quaint inn and reasonably cheap. The rooms are comfortable with lovely views of the rice terraces. The only downside is there are no electricity sockets in any of the rooms and you have to go downstairs to the cafe to charge ur devices. The cafe downstairs is quaint and lovely and has an outdoor area overlooking a lovely view. This city often had no electricity during the night hours but after a couple of days I got used to it.

We had three nights here and would recommend this place. We had one of the rooms with a view. It was quite basic but the bed was comfortable and the shower was good with plenty of hot water. Maybe most people don't stay long enough to unpack but no wardrobe or cupboard so we couldn't. Sanafe lodge itself is quiet at night but the noise from the valley at night is incredible. Cicadas, bullfrogs and dogs all in competition as to who can make the most noise and then of course the cockerels. If like me you are a light sleeper then you definitely need earplugs. The staff were lovely and a special mention for Joy on reception. We ate several times in the restaurant and the food was very good. We highly recommend Regine, our guide to Batad and the Hot Springs. She was incredibly knowledgeable and cared passionately about the environment.

Before heading to Batad we were led here for breakfast. We ordered a filipino breakfast and it came out pretty good. We had lunch here again after arriving from Batad and we had another tasty food. I recommend this place to everyone. The view of the town from the restaurant is quite nice too.
