I booked this hotel thru Agoda, and, enjoyed my 3 ngts in this lovely place! I had communicated via email with them, prior to my visit, to schedule my airport pickup; and, to make a reservation for me on an " Underground River Tour". A car was waiting for me at the PPS airport, even though my Cebu Pacific flight... More

I stayed in this pension house for 3 nights and on my first night I noticed right away that there are a lot of maintenance issues. Working in a hospitality industry for many years, I am very keen into details when it comes to hotel cleanliness and comfort and the quality of service they provide. First night Aircondition is not... More

We went to Puerto Princesa as 2 couples and stayed there at the puerto pension for 5 days in March. The pension is slightly off the main town area of Puerto princesa but is easily within walking distance to the town. It is also within walking distance to the sea front / esplanade area where there are open air food... More

What an awesome value and location in Pto Princessa! Clean, basic rooms, quiet, wifi, cold beer, A/C, walkable neighborhood, easy access, peaceful courtyard, good, filling breakfast, helpful, unobtrusive staff. Two adventurous 30-something's really enjoyed their stay. A major step up from a hostel, but totally unpretentious and still connected to the neighborhood.

Stayed here two nights and really enjoyed it. Its a nice bamboo building surrounding a little garden. Rooftop restaurant is good for view and drinks, the Pier is in walking distance, while you better take a tricycle to make it down to the main stip for dinner and drinks in the evening. Room was a bit dark and small, but... More

A very nice, clean and quiet place only 2 minutes walking distance from the baywalk. Free pick-up from the airport in an air conditioned car was well arranged (they even had a sign with our name on it!). The place looks very peaceful and the design is very nice. The rooms are big and have a big comfortable bed. Good... More

We stayed one night before a flight out. Very welcoming on arrival. Nice comfortable rooms, AC great bed, everything you need. Breakfast included and nice relaxing surroundings. Airport transfers also included. Great value. Would recommend for stop overs, they also offer day trips etc and would have loved to have stayed longer.
