“"Nice, good location and budget friendly"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

With its location, only few mins. away from the airport and city proper yet the rates are affordable. The rooms are clean and spacious . The staff are very friendly and helpful especially Dave and Carl. They allowed us to stay in their music room past our check -out time for a very minimal fee because our flight to Manila was delayed. Not to mention their reception area where my husband loves to stay and do his thing. Having a restaurant is also a plus with a very accommodating staff. They made our 1st visit to Puerto Princesa more memorable. We will definitely stay again in this place the next time we visit PPS. This place is highly recommended.

Got this place through a package tour deal & also liked the reviews written here. 5 mins away from the airport, spacious & clean. The staff was very attentive to our needs. The lil huts they had was nice to hang out in. The restaurant was a plus, try the halo-halo. My only issue was the music. They had a loud speaker near the huts/restaurant area. It's the tropical islands, I wish they played REGGAE music instead of sappy songs or Gangnam style. But other than that, this budget-friendly place is highly recommendable.

We we're pleasantly surprise upon arriving to Balay Inato Pension House. The courtyard is keep very nice and clean. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staffs were friendly and accommodating especially Carl and Dave.Having a restaurant of their own is very convenient. We would definitely stay again next time when we will come back to Palawan.

Balay Inato is truly the place to be for a budget traveler. With their very reasonable rates, you will enjoy a good vacation without having to empty your savings.

They have a shuttle ready to pick us up when we arrived at the airport. Balay Inato is just 5 mins away from the airport.

Their personnel are very nice and in fact they never fail to greet their guests with big smiles. With their very warm and accommodating staff, we did not have a hard time scheduling trips and finding places to see in the city. They even served our breakfast based on our tour schedules. We did not have any problems with transportation as there were tricycles outside.

After a long day's trip (City Tour, Underground River, Honda Bay, El Nido) we found comfort enjoying their extremely appetizing Chicken Inato (Palawan's Grilled Chicken) and relaxed in our cozy rooms. They have this very Filipino ambience with their decoratives & lights together with their hospitable staff.

After our stay at Balay Inato, they brought us to the airport for departure (5 min. ride).

Overall, I really enjoyed my whole stay in Palawan. Thanks to Balay Inato!

I go back in Palawan with my friends. We stay at the Balay Inato Pension. We had a really great time there. As I expected the foods are still delicious. It is so accessible because it is only i think 5 minutes away from the airport. The place is quiet that you can relax and very clean. You must try this place.:))
