There's no question about the place, it is clean, well decorated, well lighted and very accessible to all places of interest. It is 5min away from the airport and just a tricycle ride away to the local restaurants around. The poolside are dining area is well kept and maintained. The only issue is the aircon single/double room inside the main... More

Looking for budget-friendly place to stay in Puerto Princesa. The House of Big Brother (HBB) is the one. But this is not your ordinary budget hotel. The condo rooms (where my family and I stayed) are quite big than a regular hotel room with 3 family beds which can occupy a maximum of 6 persons. For a family of 4... More

We stayed here for 2 days, the room was nice and clean; towels were provided. Breakfast is good. The location is great, 5 minutes or so going to airport. The staffs are friendly and accommodating. They arranged for free airport transfer. Will definitely recommend this to friends and family.. :)

This year is my 2nd visit in this hotel because I love the way they take care of their customers. The staff will always greet you anytime of the day, there are free water. One of the staff also offered to clean my tumbler because we don't have a dish washing liquid in the room. Those small things count a... More

We stayed here last Dec 18-20, 2014. A family of 4 in one room. I must say, we were impressed with the initial look and feel of the place, it looked like a cross between a hotel and a garden place-which was what we were looking for!! 😁 The room we stayed in opens up to the pool side and... More

Literally patterned after the famous show of "Pinoy Big Brother"; you can't smoke in the veranda. You can't go upstairs when wet (how is that possible? We go to Puerto Princesa for beach hopping); plus their water source is so scarce!!!! I hope they do something about it. Price is ok!
