Family run hotel in the heart of Koror. This is where the folks that know stay when in Palau. Since it is in the middle of town you can walk to most restaurants and businesses you will need to see while in Palau. Rates are reasonable, rooms are large and clean, service is great, everyone is friendly, and a good... More

Although the hotel is modest, clean and good value for money with friendly staff, the airport pick up which they guaranteed by advance email at 4am didn't turn up. This could be a security risk if you're travelling on your own. when the friendly Tourism Palau counter rang the hotel they said they didn't even have a booking under my... More

Penthouse is a very decent hotel in Koror, very central location and walking distance to many restaurants. Prices are reasonable and rooms are comfortable and clean. The restaurant was quite good - we had breakfast every day and the dinner as very good as well. Easy to make a reservation via email: the-penthouse@palaunet.com

Located in Koror city center this is a very good choice. Reasonable prices, comfortable and clean room, free wifi, small but good gym, very good restaurant with delicious food, good bakery with great selection of cakes. I just stood there for 6 nights and will definitely come back.

We were in Palau for a dive trip. We booked the vacation on relatively short notice, at the early end of the high season. I checked many of the dive/vacation oriented hotels, and their prices were really very high. A Palauan at a local (to the US) dive shop recommended that we look into the Penthouse for its lodging as... More

The Penthouse Hotel is a favorite among development agencies and businessmen. It is a very popular meeting place for local businessmen and they even schedule breakfast meetings. It is conveniently located just across WCTC and at the back of Palau Hotel. Reservations are done through their website with instant confirmation. They provide hotel transfer for $10. The rates do not... More

Located in the center of town the Penthouse Hotel is very convenient. It has a warm family feeling with a good little restaurant with local food and beauty salon. The rooms were clean and the staff was great. the internet is super slow but that seems to be the norm in Palau. Get a room facing away from the road,... More

if you are going to Palau on business, or combination of business and pleasure, the Penthouse Hotel is great! it is located right in the business district, and is walking distance to the major stores and best places to eat! it also is one of the few places that has wi-fi, which is not easy to come by in Palau....

Very comfortable hotel. Rooms are pretty spacious and very clean. Kind of looks shabby on the outside, but don't be fooled. Also boasts one of the best restaurants in Palau downstairs. Average price less than $100 a night.

Desk and several places to plug in computers in each room, Palau's unreliable and painfully slow internet wifi connection available in most rooms (sometimes to increase signal one needs to sit in hallway or downstairs). Beds are comfortable, shower water pressure great, the place is clean, carpets don't smell, aircon not too noisy, little balconies (but with only a view... More
