The Cordillera Inn is an old Vigan house. Unfortunately the interior was completely renovated in a modern style, its charm now lost, given up for more comfortable amenities.
It is well located on Mena Crisologo, the restored main road of the town. You enter directly from the street into a large, pleasant reception are with stone floors, a huge, round center table and antique lamps on the walls. This area adjoins the small restaurant with a congenial family atmosphere here.
A large staircase leads to the rooms on the upper floors. The original rooms have been divided to create smaller ones. This is true especially with the standard rooms. The decor is simple and sober but nearly all the rooms have air-conditioning with private bathrooms.
