“Great for your money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2011

We were just excited to be going somewhere new and different in the Philippines. We were happy that we went to Palawan even if it was raining the day we arrived. The hotel was great. We found out that it was just a year old.

Pros: convenient from the airport. close to mall and markets. close to restaurants. Great breakfast every morning. Great Chinese restaurant in the hotel.

cons: On a busy street so it gets kind of noisy. No maid service during the days we stayed there. No hot water at all, which was okay except it was just freezing cold water that came out of the tap. Bed was kind of lumpy

Overall, it was a great hotel. Staff was very friendly and courteous.

Quite hard to make reservation but finally got it done and paid a one day deposit via paypal. The problem with reservation was the email response time and the msgs were not handled by one clerk. When making phone calls, the clerk were not able to check the info and replied correctly. So there were a lot of repeated info sending back and forth.

From the outside, appearance of the hotel is nice. Hotel is centrally located and near the airport. The hotel airport pick up/drop off services were reliable (Palawan doesn't have taxis so this is really needed!). The hotel lobby was clean and cool with working air conditioning (Too bad, the upper floor windows were open letting in the noises, heat and moisture!) Interior design in the lobby area definitely needs help from professionals.

Positives: The room itself is cool with A/C, beds are comfy and bathroom is clean. Two complimentary bottles of water everyday, WIFI working great, TV is working great. Employees are nice and helpful.

Negatives: Shower only had warm water. Rooms had musty odor. Later was told by front desk that it was the "air freshner". Insulation was poor, you can hear the room next door as well as people chattling in the hallway in the middle of the night, and the roosters sang early in the morning. Room odor is the major draw back and caused me to not recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

If you can live with this smell, it is a good deal with the current promo PHP599/person per day including breakfast.

While in Palawan, I would recommend to go to the underground river tour and fireflies watching tour. I enjoyed them tremendously.

Also, this city is so clean compare to Manila!!!

I have been to A & A Hotel in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Though I have not been to the other hotels in the area, I found the hotel to be very satisfactory. Hotel is clean, service is prompt, rooms are large and food is above my expectations. Hotels location is its best feature, it is close to the airport, and other places you would want to visit in the city. Also appreciate the convenience of the pearl souvenir shop located at the hotel lobby. The only thing I missed was the swimming pool and spa services. I highly recommend the place for anyone making their first trip to Puerto Princesa in Palawan.

We stayed at A&A Plaza Hotel for our Midyear Convention in Ophthalmology. Staff was very accommodating and provides excellent service. Rooms were great! Rooms were clean, bed was soft but firm, with fluffy comforters... Split type aircon which was cold but comfortably so. Did I mention the LCD TV? Water pressure was very strong, with high flow showers and great heater.. It's located at the center of the city so public transportation is available a few steps from the lobby. Would have wanted a refrigerator in the room, but hey, ice was available upon request, so not really a problem.. Highly recommended!

Had a great time in Palawan.

The staff at A&A Plaza Hotel are courteous and helpful. They have a great service and a very good location. All public utility vehicles crosses in front of A&A Plaza Hotel, very convenient to us.. TOP STAR, a travel and tours agency is also located at the ground floor, very convenient!

I have stayed in numerous hotels in the philippines for business trips. AA plaza hotel is a new hotel, the staff are friendly and courteous, I like their menu. The number one issue that I like is Security and location. It is situated in the busy part of the city of palawan. It is accessible to any vehicle. I believe their price is the best for a decent hotel in Palawan. Yes, I would definitely recommend to my friends.
