I was denied boarding on an onward flight and found myself isolated at the Airport. Koror is a laid-back town and finding a room at three in the morning can be difficult. The first few hotels were closed and non-responsive and it took a bit of an effort to have the access door to the West Plaza Desekel unlocked by... More

The staff was VERY accommodating here, helpful in so many ways from getting us a car to additional room items to arranging a 2:00AM shuttle. It is located upstairs and is a bit odd to find it adjacent to a massage studio, but otherwise the location downtown is convenient to restaurants, bank, shopping, etc. It is expensive, too. Maybe all... More

This is a simple hotel in Palau and the description provided by the website is fair. I stayed there for one night, on my way to a liveaboard trip. Location is ok, as there are cafes, little markets and restaurants nearby. Good for a short stay.

It is scary looking. You have to go up a flight of stairs to reach the check-in. There are no elevators. They charged us for warm bottled water and the fridge didn't work. The AC was so loud we couldn't sleep. Internet is expensive. They failed to mention that you can get Palau wi-fi for $20 for 10 hours and... More

I had very low expectations going into my four night stay at West Plaza Desekel while I was diving nearby, but I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are basic- what you would expect from a two or three star hotel - but they are very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff is also very helpful and familiar with... More

I booked this hotel as a solo traveler who was in Palau to dive so I only need to please myself. If you want a quiet, clean room with a hot shower after diving at the days end close to Koror this is ideal. The staff were really friendly and having a supermarket downstairs was a bonus, give the staff... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our kayaking trip (after staying at West Plaza Malakal at the beginning) and wished we had booked her instead. Not having a car in Koror, it was much more convenient to stay at Desekel due to its proximity to shops and eateries. The room was carpeted too which was nice... More

If you're coming to Palau to dive and might be diving with FishNFins, this hotel is a great location to stay at. This is our 6th stay here, and we enjoy the quiet rooms, the comfortable beds and the great location: close to many of the restaurants in town and a short walk to FishNFins. There's even a market on... More
