A clean and wonderful place with a great traditional atmosphere and a very nice restaurant. Great view and nicely situated - easy to get to town, to the restaurants by the water and tours. Very friendly staff from the reception on the ground floor to the restaurant on fourth - and definitely worth a stay.

Puorto Pension offers good value for its price. They arrange free airport pick ups and drop offs and they are centrally located within the city. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We booked this hotel twice before and after staying in El Nido. The massages they offer are also really good.

The hotel's overall ambiance reflects the simple life in the provinces, which is very nice.. The staff are very courteous both for local and foreign guests.. And a short walk away is the baywalk area where affordable food and beer are available.. I'll definitely go back to this hotel for my next visit in Puerto Princesa..

We stayed at room 20 which had a beautiful view of the harbor. It is an eco-friendly basic hotel but is very clean and comfortable. The decor is that of the Philippine native motif. It has a nice courtyard and balcony for relaxing. If you are looking for clean accomodation without the frill of a full resort, then this would... More

Who says you can't go home again? I was in Puerto Pension 3 years and loved it. A week ago I went back because I had liked it so much - and partly to test it out. Hurrah. It surpassed all my expectations from the airport pick-up to the airport drop off a week later. Just a lovely, well-designed place.... More

We love this place. It blends to the simple living of the people in the area but it doesn't mean the place is plain. It is neat, clean and has a nice view upstairs. The location is close to the airport and to the town that it is convenient to walk around at night. Bay walk is just at the... More

In fairness, we had spent two weeks (prior to coming to Puerto Princesa) in PARADISE (Coron and El Nido). So coming to Puerto was a bit of a downer. People and cars and noise everywhere (gah!). We really did like the Puerto Pension though. The rooms are clean and nice, the courtyard is tranquil and beautiful. The wireless service was... More

Rustic, old style Filipino decor. Rooms were a bit small but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. The view from 4th floor dining room was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Walking distance to Baywalk.

My family and I chose this place based on the traditional decor and its price. It was a great value for the money. Staff is very friendly, although service in the restaurant can be extremely slow. The food wasn't bad, though, and we ended up eating there several times because if the convienence. Tours were great, and the outside courtyard... More

A tiny bit more expensive than some pensions in Puerto but well worth it. The rooms are cool, very clean, fridge and mini bar, TV, but without loosing any character. The little walkway outside you room has a table and chairs so you can sit and socialise out there if you like. The staff were very helpful and friendly and... More
