Ganduyan Inn

The popular, 3-storey Ganduyan Inn, managed by couple Marina and Hanzel Biag, is located at the very center of town.  One of the very earliest guest houses in Sagada, part of the building incorporates the re-opened Ganduyan Museum and Ganduyan Souvenirs.  It has spartan rooms with twin beds and a private bath with hot water (PhP750 per day) as well as rooms with common bath.

At its small cafe, you can have a good choice breakfast of either bacon, longanisatocino or corned beef with fried egg and brewed Sagada coffee.  
They also serve pancakes (honey, banana yogurt & honey, blueberry jam and banana & honey), sandwiches (ham & cheese, tuna & cheese, bacon & cheese, ham, egg & cheese and tuna, egg & cheese), crepes (nutella, apple, banana yogurt & honey, blueberry jam and banana & honey), omelets (vegetable, cheese, tuna & cheese and ham & cheese) and yogurt (banana, cornflakes & honey, banana, granola & honey, blueberry jam, fruits & honey and banana & honey).

A second building going by the same name (Ganduyan Inn 2), located about 200 m. uphill from the old building and along the road to the next town of Besao, was opened in December 2009.  It has 7 rooms with private bathrooms, some with balconies with great views over the town.
