Stayed here in Feb 2014 as a base on entering Puerto Princesa as it was 15 within mins walking distance form the airport. The rooms are clean and are set just far enough off the main road to ensure it is quiet, but it is also located 10 mins walk from the main center so it is very handy. There... More

Many times I've been checked-in this hotel since 2011 and I always reserved the 2nd floor fan room. This hotel is 5 minutes travel by tricycle to Airport and you may walk in 10 minutes to the heart of Puerto Princesa City. The room was huge for 1 person as if its family room and the price is pretty good... More

We were not checked in here but we tried to eat in their restaurant. it's a tiny restaurant that sits in the middle of their garden inside. Generous serving so you have to pay a little more but you'll see why in the quality and quantity. Quiet ambience always. I would return here definitely and recommend it to all!

Me and a friend got a twin bed room for about 1200 Paso. It's far enough from the hustle and bussel to be quiet when sleeping and lounging about,yet 10 mins walk gets you straight into the night scene. It served its purpose and we were satisfied on the whole so be booked it again after returning back to palawan.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Good location - near ATM, bakery, restaurants, laundry, Tiki bar. The room is very simple but there is hot water in the shower, which is not common in Puerto Princesa hotels. The staff is friendly and helpful. We even came back for another night on our way from El Nido a week later. The garden... More

The location of the Badjao Inn was great for us. Away from the hustle bustle of the downtown yet close to excellent restaurants on the Rizal st. The garden of this inn is its best feature. It allows for a nice and decent breakfast/lunch. However, as reported by others, the deluxe room is a total letdown. The old AC barely... More

To be honest we only stayed 1 hour in the room, i couldn't stand the idea of spending the night in this dirty place. It's true that when you arrive, the inside garden gives a good first impression. But it stops right here. The standard room we were given was dirty, the sheets were yellow (but were obviously white a... More

We had a double room in the concrete block at the back, the toilet flush only worked intermittently and the aircon unit gave out a strong smell of mould when we turned it on so we decided not to use it. That said the room was quite spacious. This was my first time in Puerto Princesa so I can't compare... More

The rooms are at a great price and the restaurant is cheap and serves great food. It has a great location for anyone just staying the night in Pureto. There aren't many frills to this place but for those intransit to another destination I can't think of a better place to stay with their free wifi and airport transportation service.
