Very affordable rates. Very accessible. Along the hiway. Near the airport. Free airport pick up and drop off. Free welcome drinks. Free breakfast. Clean rooms and bathroom with hot shower. April, the receptionist and the rest of the staff were very soft spoken and welcoming. Didn't mind answering all our questions and queries. Highly recommended!

Where else can you get rooms for a cheap price that's near the airport? It's just a few minutes away from good eats. Also, the place gave us that welcoming aura with their friendly staff and good service. Love the people! Will go back to Raq Pensionne when we get the chance :)

Clean rooms, excellent and helping staff. Tricycles always available right outside. There is a tour operator and a massage facility in the hotel so it's an excellent startibg point to enjoy puerto princesa.

Staff are incredibly helpful and attentive, right down to extending my check out time and taking me free to the airport on my last day without my even asking. They also cooked me a hot meal when I arrived after the restaurant had closed, following a long bus journey! Rooms are clean and pretty spacious, especially for the price. I'd... More

Traveled with a large group and this B&B was included in the Vacation Tour package. In general, the hotel felt very aged. Even the bed sheets felt old. Every morning, a traditional Filipino breakfast was served. As a westerner, the portions were small for my taste. Raq was inexpensive, so you get what you pay for. We stayed at RAQ... More

We stayed in one of the Garden Rooms, very clean and homey. I like the concept of the Garden Room it makes you feel more comfortable. The staffs are so nice and very accommodating. I highly recommend Raq Pensionne for those who plans to visit Puerto Princesa.

Stayed at the Raq Pensionne for a few days during the week in October. Very clean and basic with warm slow pressure shower. No view for my room which was just the basic room but i don't mind, didn't spend much time in the hotel anyway. They let me check in early which helped out a lot, thank you again.... More

We stayed in RAQ pensionne for almost a week and enjoyed the homey feeling, with very friendly and respectful staff. The place is simple with artistic charm and nice atmosphere. The owner/manager Mae and her husband Stephen are perfect hosts, who really make you feel at home. They treat clients in a very personal way. This down-to-earth and kind couple... More

The room was clean with good air con and breakfast was served on time everyday when i asked. I would have to say the friendliness and the service from the hotel... More
