This welcome family-run oasis of peace sits on a quiet little street in Albay and is easily the best midrange guesthouse around. The eight compact en-suite rooms are spotless and the tranquil common areas are great for meeting other guests. Naturally there's a balcony for Mayon viewing. Head right along the riverside path from Albay Central School.
