The place was ok. I stayed in a double room. The wifi in the room was crap, I had to keep going outside to use the wifi. I was charged P2000 for just one night so I was very disappointed. The breakfast was ok, they have a range of cooked breakfast to choose from.

I was here with my Australian relatives for 4D3N. The service is excellent and the staffs are friendly. If I ever go to Palawan again, I would love to be in this place. It's just a walk from the bay and to the cathedral.

Looking for a nice quiet affordable place to stay in Puerto Princesa? This is the place to go. Since we live in Texas, I asked my brother in the Phil to arrange accommodations online. Girlie at Matutina was courteous and professional and made sure our stay from Dec 20-22, 2015 was comfortable and safe. We stayed in a room that... More

positive: location in the center - close to the cathedral and the commercial center friendly personnel tour desk in the reception free wifi working well negative: water was only available sometimes during the night hours - so showering was only possible by using a barrel of water and a scoop

If you want to travel to the Philippines and experience the Filipino way of living then this place is a must! Situated in the centre of town it is in a perfect location close to the shops and the the Baywalk. Pristine Beach is only a 50php tricycle away (15minutes). We stayed here twice, on the way to El Nido... More

I can't understand how this hotel has more than even one star. The neighborhood it is located in is narrow, dark, and scary. The staff were rude and crooked (charging me for the "free shuttle there" and my entire stay even though I cancelled as soon as I arrived there). First off, the entrance gate is a chicken-wire fence with... More

Our trip to Palawan was in Dec 2013. I was a bit skeptical to do all the transactions via email and texts, since a bank deposit had to be made prior to us arriving. Speaking to Malou and reading all the reviews put me at ease. We arrived a little earlier than the staff expected and our room was not... More

- lousy free breakfast, ridiculous cooking fee even if you supply all ingredients for a simple corned beef - noisy neighborhood with dogs barking in the middle of the night - water supply for bath was cut several times during our stay
