Been here twice already. Oct 2009 and oct 2012. Nice place. Affordable meals. Clean room. Very accessible theres a lot of tricycle waiting outside that can tour you or bring you around the city. Highly recommended. We wish to come back here.

The hotel was close to the Puerto Princesa airport and Balay Inato... More

good accomodation with free breakfast. rooms are clean and very comfortable. the staff is very accomodating . aircon is cold. hot shower is provided in the bathroom. they clean the rooms everyday and replenish all toiletries. has wide open spaces outside so you wont feel suffocated. my only gripe is the breakfast, its just so-so but not a deal breaker....

Went back here to have a vacation with my college friends. Ambiance was so cozy! We had beers in front of our room and the set-up/place was just perfect after long day tours. Staff were accommodating and you do not need to go elsewhere just to eat as inside the Balay Inato Pension compound is the Haim Chicken Inato Resto... More

Goood food, Good ambiance and good service. No complain. Lights and trees were very beautiful during nights and they had a back up generator in case of emergency. This was a very memorable experience, specially the buffet.
