Sure, there's plenty hotel in Palawan but my favorite is The Legend Hotel. Why? simple, because everything you need is there. Clean, good food and everything seems to be in order. even their package for city tour is excellent.

We stayed here because we wanted to go to the Underground River Tour and the Zipline.. well unfortunately, we wish we knew that those places are actually 2 hours away from this hotel! We would have much rather stayed in Sabang where the Underground River and Zipline were located as those resorts were right on the beach. Instead we were... More

Good accommodation. Hotel staff were very polite and respectful. My Aunt reserved 4 rooms and since we found them quite small, we requested for bigger rooms if possible. The hotel supervisor upgraded our rooms without extra charge. Great service! I will definitely recommend this place to my friends.

We did not expect much but still were disappointed. We had reserved a suite which was really just a larger room badly in need of painting and a complete overhaul. The windows were dirty. The sink took forever to drain. The water was tepid at best. The internet connection was the slowest we have ever seen. The room a/c was... More

I love staying in hotels and amenities are very important for me. Surprisingly, having to stay in quite a number of hotels, Legend Palawan is one or the very few who has bidets in their toilets! Their shower is pretty decent too as it is fixed on the ceiling. Spacious room with a flat screen TV and a working wireless... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 4 nights in a superior room. Very spacious and clean room. Beds are comfortable and slept very good since it's quiet at any time. I would have give it 5 stars if there was a flat tv instead of a standard one. All in all a very good hotel with very helpful personel.

Only a few minutes from the airport. Lobby looked nice, language barrier for English speaking people. Big room. Bed was a mattress on a piece of plywood on a wooden frame, not the most comfortable. Room was clean, bathroom was generally clean, a few short hairs found in the corner. Restaurant was odd. Waiter made a phone call after we... More

Legend Hotel Palawan was a good hotel to stay in as it is centrally located in Puerto Princesa. It is relatively near the finest dining places and attractions that Puerto Princesa has to offer. Commute is easy as spacious tricycles seem to be always available as soon as you step out of the hotel. The hotel itself seems to be... More
