The room was very clean and their comfort room was very nice... AC was just ok... The attendant, when we had our breakfast was very accomodating... I would... More

I was last in this hotel 2 years ago, when I awarded them a TA certificate which is now on the entrance door. Pleased to report it is still a good place to stay. 999P (aprox £13) for a double air con room. Room and bathroom very clean, staff very pleasant and professional. Location is very near to the Boulevard... More

Every time I go to Dumaguette (every two years) I stay in Hotel Palwa. It's a well located hotel in the center of town. Most rooms have been renovated and are in a decent, clean state. The airco is good, a decent flat screen TV and even the WiFi works most of the time. Service is great, staff is friendly... More

I have stayed in this hotel on a few occasions with a family of 5 and cannot find a fault with the staff or the accommodation. Always a pleasant stay the room always cleaned and the staff always willing to help very safe and convenient in the heart of the city. Capasso Family

Well Palwa means palm! Good sized rooms; cool aircon; efficient friendly staff and free pickup from airport. Wi-fi isn't 100% reliable but it does reach rooms. Have stayed many times and whilst there is no room safe, there is in reception.

The Palwa is located near the center of Dumaguete, a nice little town with a pleasant seafront boulevard. The room was small, but clean and comfortable and the staff pleasant and helpful. It is a basic hotel, similar to many I found in the Philippines, but it did have a nicer atmosphere about it. A tip for travelers on the... More

Hotel Palwan is easy to reach in the middle of the town. From here, you walk around one corner to reach the lively market of Dumguete, a few minutes more and you reach the Cathedral and if you go down the road you hit the beach promenade - a good choice in the evening. The hotel rooms are very well... More

Excellent for first timer! Location at the heart of the city, 5-10 minute walk to Rizal Boulevard, 3 minute walk to the market. Near to best restos. The hotel.... clean room, friendly staff, rates are very economical. Highly recommended! My only recommendation is for them to have their own resto in the future, it will be nice to drink a... More

I went to stay here last year . And as I came inside the staffs from the reception are all smiling and very intertaining. The room is clean but it's a bit limited space. They have a restaurant downstairs next to the reception too. And if you need to go for shopping it's pretty close to Tops and bottom mall... More
