The best of this hotel is the rooftop terasse with lots of flowers, great views and a good kitchen. We stayed in a fan room which was very basic and a bit noisy at night. The shower didn't work - only bucket shower was possible. The Wifi did not work the whole time we stayed there. Staff is helpful and... More

Stayed at Aniceto's for just one night. The accommodation was simple, fit to the price, and familiar to anyone who's done a budget travel. All in all good. Our real appreciation was for the service at Aniceto's. After having the airline lose a bag, we ended up spending a day more than expected in Puerto, and the people at Aniceto's... More

Good value rooms with private bathroom, nice roof terrace with kitchen, wi-fi, helpful staff. Definitely a good choice for a night or two in Puerta Princesa. It is a bit far on foot from the bars and restaurants around airport but very cheap tricycyle or jeepney ride.

A nice pension house that provides a nice clean spacious room at a very reasonable price, You can also use their kitchen utensils and watch tv or dvd. Everyone will appreciate the scenery during daytime especially when you go to their rooftop. Walking distance to the church and plaza. I am very thankful to the lady owner who made an... More

I gave 4 stars, it is not the Ritz, but for the price you get a lot for your money. The location is in the poor part of the city near the port downhill from the cathedral. If that was in Manila or cebu , it would be scary, but this is Palawan, the locals are exceptionally friendly, a few... More

My friends and I stayed there for 3 days last Nov. 2011 and we love the room given to us. Ate Tess (the owner) is very warm and accommodating (even from the time I texted and inquired about their pension house's availability).She also offered to book us the Underground River tour. The room where we stayed was clean and comfortable... More

If friendly staff, large room, rooftop garden, fan and own shower toilet for P550 is not cheap enough then go to Bankok. Each floor has a central common area but the roof top garden is OTT and situated some 15min walk from the main centre. There is alot of stairs but check out the reading area on level 3.

Stayed here for 6 months. I loved the place. They have wi-fi so if you need it it's available. There is a rooftop courtyard which is pretty and has a gorgeous view of the ocean especially at sunset. The rooms here are the cheapest in Palawan and the owners are very nice. If you tip the maids in chocolate they'll... More
