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

The room was nice and spacious, and the bed was comfortable. It is located right in central Koror within walking distance from some of the restaurants and supermarkets and tourist shopping. The staff are friendly, and rooms are serviced each day. It does have a little road noise from the street, but for the price compared to a lot of... More

The Penthouse Hotel features comfortable rooms, central location, great air conditioning, a small workout gym, and a wonderful restaurant. This hotel is reasonably priced and after years of staying at the Palasia Hotel, I'm definitely switching and staying at the Penthouse from now on. The staff is friendly, the food is great, and the rooms are clean. What more could... More

Penthouse review This hotel is often the preferred base for people working in Palau on short term assignments. If you are looking for a resort with any kind of sea view this is definitely not the place for you, but where it has the edge perhaps is its proximity to restaurants in Koror. Rooms at the front of the hotel... More

If you are visiting Palau and want a clean room with excellent water pressure and a convenient location, the Penthouse is your place! If you travel a lot and expect the basics of a hotel room and not looking for extravagance, then this is your place. They told us at check-in that if we had a late flight on our... More
