3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Stayed 2 nights. Cheap and cheerful. Helpful staff. Comfortable bed, 24hr front desk. Shower was absolutely terrible. Lack of water output. I would stay again if the shower was better, the only let down to be honest.

The location of the hotel is in the city center so it's easy to go to one place from another. The room is just average. The staff were very friendly though and we were able to check in earlier than the regular check in time.

First found about Hotel Palwa through a friendly habal-habaldriver a few years ago when it was new. Very good value place. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Food downstairs is good. Quiet location if you want to relax.

The best thing for me about this hotel was the comfy bed....The young lady at the reception was not friendly and not helpful ...The location of the Hotel is pretty good. However the Check Inn for example....which is just a short walk away is better... Staff were noisy in the corridor which was annoying ....Not recommended

Hotel Palwa is probably the most inexpensive decent hotel in Dumaguete. If you need a place to sleep over without much expectations on hotel amenities, this is the hotel. It's located at the center of Dumaguete. The room is clean and bed sheets are well laundry. Choose a room at the inner row to avoid noise from public motorcycles (pedicabs).

Wi-Fi signal also very weak!! Also charged me for electricity to keep my very small box of food I brought back from a... More

The other reviews are a good summary: decent value, really loud AC, loud street noise depending on where you are, friendly staff. Unlikely someone would be in Dumaguete for more than a night or two and this place will definitely suffice. After exhaustive research, there's nothing in town by way of "boutique" options, so for a good price, this is... More
