If you're looking for a cheap place to stay within the city of Puerto Princesa, this is one of them! Best places to dine in are a tricycle ride away (Php8-10). It's along one of the major roads and offers a free set of breakfast daily. Best to order the Filipino favorites: tocino/ longganisa/ danggit (dried fish)/ beef tapa; served with 1 cup of plain rice, 1 egg + coffee (instant), tea (1 tea bag of Lipton), or juice (powdered).
The receptionists are very efficient and thoughtful. They reminded us about our schedules, the pick-up times and offered to call the restaurants for us. They also promptly gave us the pitcher of filtered water & 1 cup of hot water as we requested for our daily needs.
The room is quite small though. Three of us squeezed into 1 junior deluxe room. The additional bed took away any extra space for walking between beds. Tv is high above the wall so you must lie on your bed to watch properly.
The shower curtain's plastic is quite hardened so you we had to be careful while showering unless we're ok with wet tissues. Only soap and towels are provided so you have to bring your own toiletries. On the plus side, clothe hangers are plenty and right by the aircon so your wet clothes can dry faster.
Best area to take your breakfast/ nightcap is at the coutyard, which offers a respectable view of the sky. Good value but I'd want to try another inn next time.
