See The First Ever Bed & Breakfast Ancestral Home in Negros- German Unson Heritage House

German Unson Heritage House in Silay City is the first-ever heritage house which was turned into bed and breakfast. It's the newest accomodation in the City that will make you will feel nostalgic. If you are wondering how it feels like to live in an ancenstral home, then you must stay here at least for a day.

Dr. Lope de La Rama was the original owner of the Neo-Spanish Colonial house. He was married to French Mestiza Carmen Archard. They left the property to their grand-daughter, Fe, who married German Locsin Unson, hence the name of the house. 

They have four children and their home was eventually bequeathed to their eldest daughter Ma. Lourdes and youngest daughter Cristina. When Ma. Lourdes died, the house was passed on to Cristina since she was unmarried. Marni, daughter of Cristina, made the present renovations and restored the house to its original design.

German Unson Heritage House aims to make their guests feel like the owner of the house rather than a visitor.  It has only four bedrooms and each room is named after their children, reflecting the owner's character.

The  Rene Room was named after the couple's only son. Located at the ground floor, it has two beds, air-conditioning, private bathroom with hot and cold shower and bathtub. The room can accomodate maximum of four guests.

Just beside the Rene room is German-Fe Room. It has a king-sized bed, it has its own sitting and dining area, and an en-suite bathroom. This beautiful room is ideal for couple.

This is the best part of the room- the bathroom with bathtub and Fe's collection of shells. They provide bubble bath soap for those who want to use the bathtub. But if you don't like, you can also use the shower room.

On the second floor is Carmen-Cristina Room. It has two beds, air-conditioning and a private bathroom with hot and cold shower and bathtub. It has a balcony overlooking the garden. The room can accommodate up to four person.

The Lourdes Room, also on the second floor, is the most spacious room. It has two double beds, dining area, and bathroom. Unlike other rooms, Lourdes opted for a small bathroom without bathtub since she wanted an office or a study room. It also provides hot and cold shower. The room is ideal for family and bigger groups.

Although the rooms are spacious enough to accomodate more than six persons, they limit it up to four persons to keep the serene ambiance of the house. The management can also make adjustments on the number of people, but you need a prebooked reservation.

Since German Unson Heritage House is a bed and breakfast, your morning meal is already included in the room rate. Your breakfast can be served on your room or on their dining room in the second floor. The good thing is, your breakfast meal is also inspired by the family's recipes.

They don't provide lunch and dinner but they also allow guests to bring outside foods. They also provide microwave if you want to reheat your meal. 

The house's location is also excellent. It is just a few steps away from convenience stores, Silay City Public Plaza, San Diego Pro-Cathedral, Airpot shuttle terminal and Ceres Bus loading area.
