I stayed here 1 night for a reasonable price for a room (250 pesos I think) with no breakfast. The bed was ok, it wasn't too loud and I checked in early in the morning no problem. The restaurant upstairs had tourist prices and there was a bit of space to sit near to the rooms. Hot showers cost more but I was ok with cold even though it rained when I was there. Staff were ok and it wasn't too far from where we eventually ended up from the bus.
This is our 3rd visit in Banaue, and we have stayed here instead of the usual Banaue Hostel that we always book. We stayed here for 3 nights, while traveling to Batad, and we left our luggage here for 1night. We stayed in Rm09, with 4 single beds, a verandah with the view of the rice terraces and our own private bathroom. The room is spacious and clean, a must for me, and we can hear the sound of the river below, as opposed to the other side of the hotel which is the street level. The staff are friendly and helpful, they helped us book our van going to Batad. Many tourist backpackers around the world can be seen eating here or spending their night here. For the amount that we paid, the accommodation is at par. Please be reminded that Banaue is a small town in the mountain region, so don't expect any 5 star accommodations here, so this is the best among others, except if you are staying in Banaue Hostel, of course, run by the Dept. of Tourism. …
The place is average but it was very convenient that we could organise our hike and other overnight stays from there (Jeremia was very helpful). The double room was find but a noisy. The communal room has a restaurant with nice views (with slow wifi) and the food served was ok.
The place itself is nice, with clean and big common space. Our room was clean even if the bathroom (private) was not excellent (common in the region). The restaurant is good, and the prices are in the average. A drawback is the organization of the excursions: they propose many options, but the same are available at the info point at lower price, especially for the transport! In any case I would not suggest to stay more than 3 nights in Banaue
Good room with clean bedding and fresh paint job. The rate is not very high. The lodge does also have a restaurant, but they have an expensive menu. The rooms are not provide with own power sockets, but if you want to charge your device, you can give it to the reception and they'll charge it for you.
The rooms are very dark and small and the shared bathrooms leave much to be desired. It almosyt comes across as a swiss chalet but then seems to leave somethignout. the views fromthe tiny restaurant are very nice but the food leaves much to be desired. It takes foever to cook and the staff are often runningh out for supplies, almost as though they have no stik and only buy what is ordered to cook. It is strange that they will charge you to charge yourphone or computer, it is all very echoey and the sleep quality not the best
I've always loved the vibe of Twin Peaks whenever I watched it, aside from the murders and freaky stuff that was going on that is. Sipping a cup of damn good coffee in a wooden lodge in a peaceful mountainvillage, I've always wanted to do that. In the Greenview Lodge in Banaue, my wish came true. I felt like I walked into a episode of Twin Peaks and it was really awesome. I have to be honest though, the hostel is just OK. The beds are OK, the shower is cold but OK, the food is good but a bit expensive and there are a lot of things you need to pay extra for (charging, storage, warm shower, towel). The view, however, is awesome. A tip: the people who work there will come up to you and offer you daytrips, but don't say 'yes' right away. You can do the exact same thing for way less.…
We originally chose green view because we wanted somewhere that had a great view but we quickly learned that that's about all it had. The most frustrating part was that the rooms don't have any outlets. The front desk will let you charge it there but depending on who is working there will charge 20 pesos. The walls of the rooms seem paper thin. The tops only have chicken wire so the sound really does carry. The one redeeming quality about this place is its food. Even though we switched hotels my friend and I kept coming back to eat there, since as it was the only decent food place could find in the town (Their cheeseburger with pineapple was delicious!!).
When arriving in Banaue this guesthouse has many employees working at the bus station trying to lure you to their "cheap" guesthouse. Yes, at first the rooms (250php per person) seem cheap but look at the ridiculous things you have to pay extra for: - charging a phone: 20 pesos - charging a laptop/tablet: 40 pesos - hot shower: 25 pesos (50 after checkout, cold shower is really really cold) - towel: 20 pesos - meals in restaurant highly overpriced No friendliness left at this guesthouse either, you are seen as a walking wallet. My advice: try the sanafe guesthouse, same price but so much friendlier and without the "extras"
Greenview was an absolutely amazing place to stay! The view from the restaurant is awe-inspiring, an the beds were very comfy. Besides that though it just has a great vibe and the nicest staff. Jacqui, in particular, was so helpful during my stay. All of the staff were so helpful, especially in helping provide vegan meals for me and making sure we were warm a night. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place and the people that run it. Amazing people and an amazing time - I'd definitely stay there again :)
