Vigan brought back memories of my high school days' El Filibusterismo and Noli Me Tangere classes ~ the old Hispanic buildings, the cobbled stone road and the kalesa ride perfected the moment.
A Hotel Felicidad stay was an obvious decision for our family expedition in vintage Vigan city.
The hotel is newly built and boasts huge classic Principalia themed rooms.
It is located right in the heart of Vigan City and is just a few steps away Vigan's famous Calle Crisologo.

We booked a deluxe room, with a queen size and a single poster beds. I must warn you that the beds are quite high - not good for kids who roll and toss over in their sleep.
We had to join the two beds together to sleep my family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) comfortably. That plus, I wouldn't want one of boys falling over.

|The hotel is quite generous with toiletries. I liked their soap a lot, I brought the left over home.|
We love the room, but for a 4 star hotel they don't have a refrigerator nor a coffee maker inside the room (You can, however, request for cold water from any of the hotel's staff anytime. Coffee also runs free for a particular time of the day at the hotels dining area. Still a in-room refrigerator, would have been a whole lot more convenient, especially for those travelling with kids).
Breakfast came free with the room accommodation. Choices were limited and preparation quite poor compared to other hotels we have stayed in. Don't expect too much, so as not to disappoint yourself. If you are not satisfied, you can always take a stroll to one of the restaurants along Calle Crisogo.

Hotel Felicidad was a perfect choice for my family's
Holy Week rendezvous in Vigan.
