We stayed for two nights, and everything was as expected, apart from the fact that there were no views from the window. Just the same, it was only a few minutes walk away from the boulevard, and a 24-hour McDonald's is just around the block. The only real downside for me was that the water heater does not work most...

I'ts a nice place to stay if you'll visit in Dumaguete. Been staying there for like three times already and the consistency of room cleanliness, functional facilities, good staff and comfy milieu is affirmatively there. :) Thanks and will come back again soon :)

We booked a family room in 03/07. We checked in around 10pm. The next day I requested that we extend for an hour and checkout 1pm. They frontdesk advised there is a P100/hr charge. I tried to explain that since we didn't fully enjoy the entire stay because we checked in late, maybe an hour extension without charge will be... More

I stayed in a standard room on the fourth floor. It had minimum furnishings, but it was clean, comfortable, and it met my expectations. The reception and staff were friendly and helpful. My primary complaints are about the room details and the hotel's location. One side of the hotel faces Real Street, the main road running through the city, so... More

Ideally situed in the heart of the city, Palwa Hotel provide large and clean rooms for reasonnable price around 1000 pesos. A little bit noisy on the morning due to the incredible traffic of the city. Good Wifi connection, hot showers, aircon, confortable beds, you don't need more. You can also rent motorbike at the desk. The staff is helpfull... More

One night in a nearby town we had an all-night blackout, and after riding around town to find a decent hotel, I decided to try Palwa. Where do I start? As usual in the Philippines, the front desk staff were friendly and accommodating. But it soon was downhill from there... The room was passable but not worthy of note. And... More

I liked staying in Hotel Palwa. My BF and I stayed here for almost a week. We liked the bed (it's firm), the location (walking distance to the boulevard), the rate (reasonable at P1000 for two people), the hot shower, and the Wifi connection (it only went out once while I was working). They also picked us up for free... More

This is one of those classy places where they make you pay for everything. Extra sheet/blanket because the one we provide is as thin as tracing paper and our aircon is set to freezing - that'll be 50 pesos? Extra pillow to help you stop your 2 year old falling out of the bed? 50 pesos. If you've stayed in... More

Dated rooms with ugly colors in mint green. Small bathroom and non exsisting view in the middle of Dumaguete noicy sentrum. Noicy aircondition. Small cafe like restaurant with limited breakfast menu served on plate. Ekstra pay for coffe! Proberly ok for people coming from the provinces but for experienced trawelers, choose another hotell!
