The only good thing about this inn is that its in the center of the city proper. So good restaurants are all nearby. The things I hate about this inn is that every one is so gloomy even the guy at the lobby. Our paid breakfast isn't even served unless you tell them to. Our room is all dusty and... More

Sad to say, the place is getting dilapidated - lots of ants, TV connection is so bad, only 2 channels are... More

For the group of three we paid 350 for a twin and 250 for a single budget fan room, which was pretty cool, even though we had to... More

Stayed at duchess to keep costs down, paid 600pesos for twin room with fan and cold water. We were going to take the singles with shared bathroom but only 2 toilet/showers per floor did not seem enough. Room was adequate, there was a tv but you had to pay to use it. Shower head was broken on arrival but this... More

The air-con worked well... More

The Duchess Pension was first referred to me by my Dad when he went to Puerto Princesa alone. Upon my arrival this January, I found out for myself why my dad was so ecstatic about this place.
