I cannot yet say that this is the best hotel in Bontoc because this is my first time staying in a hotel in Bontoc but I can honestly say that it is a decent hotel (bed and a hot shower) in a mountain town.
Archog Hotel and Restaurant is located at Samoki, Bontoc, Mountain Province 2616 Bontoc, Mountain Province. You can contact them through their Facebook page or with their contact number, 0977 840 1786.
As our final destination for our road trip is Sta. Anna, Cagayan, our stay at the Archog Hotel and Restaurant is limited to one night, two nights at the maximum. We really just want a bed a hot shower to freshen us up after a day of driving in the mountain roads.
Like all the establishments in the Philippines, Archog Hotel and Restaurant has a No Mask No Entry policy.
The first thing we did is order food and eat our lunch. You can see on the clock in the picture above that it's way, way past noon. I think deciding to have lunch here is one of the best decisions that we made because their rice is HEAVENLY! It's so soft and fresh and everything you cannot taste in the normal rice you buy in the supermarket. I cannot specifically describe what it was like, you have to taste it to know the difference but the owner said that it is from their own farm. So, it's basically a farm-to-table setting. The trend rich people are craving right now.
Their lobby is quite warm and cozy, filled with arts and pictures of the Mountain province and its people.
We checked in and they gave us the Fatayan room worth 1,700 which is good for three people.
It has three single beds and a private bathroom with a hot and cold shower.
One quirky thing about this hotel is the way they name their rooms. They named it after the streets of Bontoc but to an outsider, like me, it is really very amusing to say it with my mouth. Here are a few of the rooms that we passed by on the way to our room.
We also have our very own balcony with a view of the streets and the mountains.
As of the time we checked in, there was still no Internet connection but feel free to contact them to check if they already have one.
