PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW: Please DON'T use this hotel. I have never left a negative review before as I know what standards to expect when travelling around Asia however...I booked and paid for this hotel in advance due to travelling for 16 hours on boat and arriving at 8pm in PP and wanting somewhere to stay without walking the streets....

The pension house is strategically located along Rizal Ave. It is very close to major establishments luke banks, restos, and fastfood chains. The rooms are big, toilets are good, has hot shower, and safe. I strongly recommend the place because aside from being affordable, it is close to almost everything. The staffs are very polite. We enjoyed our stay there... More

The Alta City Pension is centrally located, tucked down a short narrow lane way off the main street. A big advantage to it's position is that it is sheltered from the road noise and loud late night music from the bars across the road. Your sleep is sure to be peaceful. When we walked in off the street, a ground... More

I have stayed here on 2 separate occasions now and its a good deal. Nothing fancy, just a clean room with hot water, air con and right in the middle of Puerto almost on the crossroads opposite Tikki Bar. 5 minutes to the airport, 10 mins to the bus terminal and you can walk to all the usual city food...

The room is clean and the staff are accommodating :) We tried to borrow two cups with hot water and they gave it to us faster than expected :) Though the room is comfortable, expect to hear voices from outside that it will surely wake you up from sleep. Also, they do not have a generator, I woke up around... More
