The pension house is strategically located along Rizal Ave. It is very close to major establishments luke banks, restos, and fastfood chains. The rooms are big, toilets are good, has hot shower, and safe. I strongly recommend the place because aside from being affordable, it is close to almost everything. The staffs are very polite. We enjoyed our stay there... More

The Alta City Pension is centrally located, tucked down a short narrow lane way off the main street. A big advantage to it's position is that it is sheltered from the road noise and loud late night music from the bars across the road. Your sleep is sure to be peaceful. When we walked in off the street, a ground... More

It's only 2 to 5 mins walk to and from the NCC mall, tiki bar . The staff are very friendly and helpful especially Maam pearl she... More

I have stayed here on 2 separate occasions now and its a good deal. Nothing fancy, just a clean room with hot water, air con and right in the middle of Puerto almost on the crossroads opposite Tikki Bar. 5 minutes to the airport, 10 mins to the bus terminal and you can walk to all the usual city food...

The room is clean and the staff are accommodating :) We tried to borrow two cups with hot water and they gave it to us faster than expected :) Though the room is comfortable, expect to hear voices from outside that it will surely wake you up from sleep. Also, they do not have a generator, I woke up around... More

Our stay here is so-so. We had to book a 3-night stay in this inn for the all the pension houses with reasonable prices were all fully booked during our travel. We were 6 persons sharing a room for 3 persons, so they ended up putting 2 extra beds that actually managed the three of us on the floor. They... More

This place is just off the main street, right in the middle of town. We were lucky enough to get one of their economy rooms which already were a tiny bit over our generally tight budget. But it was well worth the price. Rooms were spacious and clean with comfy beds, aircon and tv. Bathroom is shared for economy rooms... More
