We stayed at the family room of 8...it was a great ambience. Had a good rest except for the too soft foams they had for the bed, but tolerable. Staff is helpful when asked. My favorite area is the hammock at the open area of the mansion. It was relaxing. During our stay, there were some difficulties on the water... More

I love how they treat their guests, Ms Mhalou especially. Honest and very accommodating staff and service is superb. We booked a family room good for 4 persons and it was huge with complete basic bathroom necessities. The room and the bathroom are clean as to be expected. Wifi is working very well in our rooms but dwindles when we... More

Matutina Pensionne House easily provided the warm ambience of a provincial home. We arrived early morning so we had to wait for our room check-in. The good thing is we easily found a place in the compound where to relax -- the hammocks! I swear it could easily rock me to sleep. Malu and the rest of the staff are... More

While in Puerto Princesa last Feb 7-9, 2014, my family stayed in this B&B. It was really a home-away-from-home experience. I felt we were in our own home. It's so clean, the staff were were warm -- especially the manager, Malu! And even before we came in, communicating with Malu was very nice & cordial, and response was fast. Thank... More

Nestled in a very quiet neighbourhood, yet, within walking distance to busy Rizal Ave, where the famed Kalui restaurant is located. The pension setting is very warm, and the rooms very clean. Malu has been very helpful in organising our tours, which, we enjoyed immensely. Will return on our next trip to PPS.

After months of doing my research on this place, I finally had the chance to stay here. Matutina Pensionne is conveniently located in Taft Street right along Rizal Avenue. Was here for 4D3N with my sisters & we enjoyed it! The place is simple and with all that antique furniture only gave it that extra homey feel. The rooms were... More

a place which gives one the feeling of being home. Very friendly and helpful personnel, neat clean and well kept rooms. Beautifully located in an almost colonial style house, walking distance from marketplaces, cathedral and bay-walk.
