They provide welcome drinks upon arrival, and I think for their price, its a good place to stay. They allowed us to check in as early as 11 AM for free Pros: Good Location Wifi connection is fast, was able to watch two movies in one day. Cons: TV signal is weak. Breakfast is mediocre.

The garden located inside the inn is very relaxing. Add up the clean and spacious room, peaceful environment and accommodating staffs then it is definitely the perfect place to stay while in Puerto Princesa. Me and my sister stayed at Room 15 for 2 nights. Our room is located near the dining area and stairs going to the 2nd floor.... More

The hotel itself is very dainty and clean. Upon entering, immediately is the restaurant and beyond that is the cute garden with a scattering of tables and chairs where you can sit at night savoring your favorite drink. What I like about the place is the ambiance. A place where you feel safe, quiet and peaceful and where you can... More

We enjoyed our 3 nights stay in this budget-friendly inn . All of the staffs were so friendly and accommodating. From the time we were picked up from the airport until we left for Manila, we did not encounter any problem. They promptly responded to our queries and requests. They were the ones who also arranged our tours. I recommend... More

If you're looking for a cheap place to stay within the city of Puerto Princesa, this is one of them! Best places to dine in are a tricycle ride away (Php8-10). It's along one of the major roads and offers a free set of breakfast daily. Best to order the Filipino favorites: tocino/ longganisa/ danggit (dried fish)/ beef tapa; served... More

Reason to stay there was a promo offer for tours including hotel. That is great value for money. As a hotel on its own merits it is far too expensive for what it offers: Small rooms, meager breakfast, awful slow Internet. What does amaze me is that advertised rates on the tarpaulin differ from the inside charged rates: P 2100... More
