Alapo's View Inn & Cafe
A spartan room
The 2-storey Alapo's View Inn & Cafe is located about 300 m. from the municipal road, along the now concreted road leading to the next town of Besao.  Like most inns in Sagada, Alapo's is also a no-frills place to stay.  

Their simple, spartan room has 2 beds, a table, a monobloc chair and a small wall-hung mirror.  Evening lighting was provided by a dim, low-wattage energy-saving light bulb.  Truly, no place for the luxury-minded tourist.  

The coffee shop
However, unlike many inns in Banaue, it had a power outlet where we could charge our electronic gadgets.  Bathrooms are shared and showers have no water heaters. Bring a portable water heater.  

The inn has a coffee shop, where you could watch cable TV, and a grocery where we could buy some of your basic necessities.  Their balcony which has great views of the town and the surrounding pine-clad mountains.   These views, plus its central location, made it ideal as a base for exploring Sagada's natural and man-made wonders.
