If you are looking for nice, calm and what's more important cheap place to stay in Puerto Princesa on your way to El Nido or San Vicente, Duchess Pension is your choice. For the group of three we paid 350 for a twin and 250 for a single budget fan room, which was pretty cool, even though we had to... More

Stayed at duchess to keep costs down, paid 600pesos for twin room with fan and cold water. We were going to take the singles with shared bathroom but only 2 toilet/showers per floor did not seem enough. Room was adequate, there was a tv but you had to pay to use it. Shower head was broken on arrival but this... More

The air-con worked well... More

If your looking for a budget place to stay at, with clean rooms and near the city proper, you can stay at this place. Rooms are affordable, but everything needs to be paid of, like used of wifi including hot water which you need for a coffee. We check in at night, but no one ever assisted us with our... More

The Duchess Pension was first referred to me by my Dad when he went to Puerto Princesa alone. Upon my arrival this January, I found out for myself why my dad was so ecstatic about this place. The service was first-rate, and the rooms were excellent. We had a little issue during the storm (when a small section of the... More

This place has simple amenities for solo and group travelers: Simple double deck or queen sized beds, clean sheets and good ventilation. I tried the fan room. I remember I paid P800 for 4D3N there with three more friends. You can verify if this is still true via their website. Good wi-fi connection. I need this when traveling. They also... More

They keep improving the place. Always painting and now new Wi-Fi router for an even faster internet. they constantly up grade the place. Saw a rather unfair review...Guests experiencing issues, can simply inform the staff who will fix them immediately, unless it's the middle of the night...but they will try, anyhow. Pics of the Duchess give the reader an accurate... More

if you're looking for a place that you just need to sleep in when you're done touring for the day, then this place is pocket friendly. why? 250 for a single room, 350 for a double with common toilet and bath, walkng distance to city center. if you need your private en-suite bathroom and A/C then you pay more, just...
