“A very very nice place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

If you want to feel the real palawan this is the place you have to stay!! The ambience you can compare it's like you are in a deep forest it's so quiet. Its a japanese, pilipino inspire pension house, for a cheap price 1,200php you will get your money's worth, thy will also arrange a tour if you want. The owner and staff every accomodating, and prompt. Thy will treat you as a family member...

I was here with my ex fiancé 3 months ago. They were very accommodating, and the staff was friendly and welcoming. I truly enjoyed the hospitality and customer experience that they provided. They were able to set us up with wonderful tours around Palawan, and gave us great tips on activities we should do. The room was simple, yet just perfect for a typical tourist. One thing that made my experiences memorable with them was how they truly put effort into setting up a surprise anniversary gift for my ex.. It was a last minute surprise and notification, yet they were able to make it happen, and gave my ex one of the most memorable gifts in Palawan by buying her a huge bear and beautiful bouquet of flowers. I don't think any other hotels can compare to the value that these guys have for their customers. Thank you guys so much for the best service. I can't wait to go back.

Great rooms and location, a few minutes of from the market and puregold and robinsons place! The room was great! The price they gave us was a steal! They booked our tours and we didnt have to worry about anything! They basically took care of our whole stay there!

We heard about Tres Pension from a friend who stayed there as guest a year ago. They said the place is awesome and price is really affordable. So, me and my friend decided to stay there for 2days and 3 nights. The place was simple, cozy, clean and truly relaxing. The ambience is really good. If you’re from a long travel, you can be assured that you can be well-rested at night. Also the staffs are really accommodating. They took us from and to the airport. They also helped us book our tours. Also they gave us viable information that help us a lot with our travels around Puerto Princesa. Definitely, I’ll recommend this place.

Stayed here for 3 nights with a friend to post-celebrate his birthday. They offer free pick up transfers (place is 5-10mins away from the airport, btw) Everything is within reach since the place is in the city. The room is so-so, the bed is small. The lock on the CR is broken (hope they fixed that already). I just have to commend the staff, they are very approachable and friendly.

Tres Pension added more life on our vacation in Puerto Princesa. It was a very relaxing and quiet place since it is a bit far from the main road. Their staffs are very hospitable and accommodating, everytime we needed assistance they delightfully provide their service to us with a smile. :)
No regrets for choosing Tres Pension. We love this place.. will stay here again if we ever plan to go back in Palawan. I hope Ms. Mel (staff ) would still be there when we come back. :)

Price and appearance of the accommodation are the primary factors why we chose Tres Pension in staying in Puerto Princesa City. Their deluxe room is only P1,200 per night and they provide free airport transfers, which made it more affordable for us. We weren't disappointed with the appearance of the pension house as the place is tranquil, clean, and modern. It seems relatively new too. The breakfast was ok - just two pieces of toast with butter + jam, a slice of fruit, coffee, and juice. For a person with a huge appetite, they also have rice meals worth P100.

The only downside is that the place is too far from the main road that we have to pay P60 for a tricycle to pick us up and drop us off at our destination. Going out and going back to the pension house can be a bit costly especially if you're keeping a tight budget. The standard rate seem to be P40 one-way. Some drivers charge P25 and P30 so make sure to haggle and haggle well.

But overall our stay was relaxing. We were advised in advance about our pick up time the next time for the tour and made sure we get to eat our breakfast before we go. The staff were indeed friendly and helpful. The owner, Vivien, is very accommodating and even gave us tips on the places where we'd like to eat.

I definitely would recommend Tres Pension to my friends who would want to stay in a quiet and clean place.
