This hotel refleacts the overall image of the city, at least for me. The rooms are clean, free wi-fi, the staff are great!!! The people are very warm and very hospitable - a Filipino virtue I thought was lost due to western influence. Hey serve the food fast. Staff NEVER asked for any tip nor suggested they even wanted a... More

5 minutes away from the Airport. Located at the city center, near to fast food establishments and malls. Staff were courteous and friendly. Room was spacious, clean and new. Food served by their restaurant was also good and somehow affordable. The only down side about our stay was the poor connection of wifi. But the entire stay was really good.... More

Close to the airport (maybe five minutes by car), close to the restaurants. Staff are very nice but the service was poor. Asked for face towel but they said that their standard is only bath towels. You have to pay for "extra towel". Didnt sleep good because of the noise from neighbourhood (rooster and dogs). Bathroom gets flooded when you... More

Gorgeous hotel. Fantastic rooms and bed. Friendly, warm and helpful staff. This hotel is ideal for a relaxing vacation. Oh, and the service was fantastic. We traveled with our nephew and they received the same attentive service as the adults. You won't be disappointed!

It’s our first time in Puerto Princesa that’s why we chose this hotel located in city proper. We booked to a super deluxe room and requested ahead that we wanted a room with a good Wifi signal. So they have given us a room adjacent to Reception and Lobby area. The room has a window but we can only see... More

This hotel is centrally located - very close to the airport and to many dining options and souvenir shops. For an affordable city accommodation in Puerto Princesa, this is a very good choice. But the breakfast choices are very limited. My only other issue is that the extra bed for the fourth person was very uncomfortable and was squeaky. Other... More

An excellent hotel at the heart of Puerto Princessa Palawan. Easily accessible from everuthing, airport, market, dinning locations, Kahlui, Kinabuchs, etc. Hotel staff are welcoming, accomodating and friendly. Food at the restaurant are excellent, the free breakfast ia a bonus, very good Filipino breakfast.
