“A convenient accommodation at the heart of Puerto Princessa..”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Been here for 3D/2N with my bf last September 22-24, 2013. Despite the "wrong-travel-schedule" that my bf chose for traveling around Palawan (should've not been there on rainy days coz the Underground River won't be accessible by then), I'd say this hotel is a good one which is very convenient if you wish for an easy access to anywhere around the Puerto Princessa city center.

The room was clean, staffs were polite and accommodating. The reservation we booked comes with a complimentary breakfast for 2 and it was fine.

The airport is very near, about 3-5 minutes drive from the hotel. There are many restaurants and shops around the area as well as the famous Kinabuch's Bar and Grill.

I might consider coming back here again next time to catch up for the Underground River.. ^^,

I went to Puerto Princesa with my friends and we stayed at this place. Our room was nice and cozy. The receptionist and crew were very friendly too. Their location is also very near the airport and good restaurants. I give One rover's place a thumbs up!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. The room is nice, with a/c and restroom; breakfast served at Tio Rod's is delicious as well. The people are very accommodating and friendly. Whenever I have a request especially about our tours, they see to it that it is properly addressed. Also, the hotel's like a 5-10 minute drive from the airport. However, I find the mosquitoes at the room very alarming. Also, some rooms were being renovated when we got there so we got a not-so-nice room. And, uh-uh no generator (city-wide blackout for almost an hour for our first night).

Room Tip: second floor rooms are renovated

Place was ok. Don't expect much from their breakfast. Since we were out most of the time, this place is highly recommended when your first priority is price and food choice (as it is near the popular restaurants and bars). It is a short drive from the airport (3-5 minutes).

The hotel is suitable for my budget. I booked the hotel with city tour and underground river. When I arrived, a friendly staff waited me at the airport. My name was posted on their welcome board so I felt happy when I first arrived. Then, I checked my room and the room is very spacious. I thought it would be a dorm type but it is not, It is single bed but of course public bathroom. It is okay for me because the price is affordable.

First day,

I told the receptionist to change the itinerary because on my first day, it's the underground river tour but I don't have permit. So I told the receptionist to swap the schedule then she did it. She called the agency to change my itinerary.
My first tour was City tour. The personnel arrived on time.
on that day, I need to go back the the underground river office to check my 50/50 chance on getting the permit. Luckily, I got the permit. I told the staff to tell the agency about my itinerary then she immediately called the agency.
Second day,

My underground river is finally confirmed. The hotel arranged the tour for me. They also arranged my transfer to the airport.

But the things the I don't like are the following.
1. MOSQUITOES in my bedroom and comfort room
2. Poor internet connection
3. Lobby is not safe.
4. Broken remote control
5. I can't sleep well because of the noise of the airplane

Disappointing! The rooms/ reception were not properly maintained. Doors don't have double lock :( I was booked in a suite already and it's totally not worth it! Since am alone and the available suite has 2 beds, only one bed was made up. One pillow per bed only and they would charge 100 php for a pillow/night. Also, one needs to pay for hot water! how bad can it get?

I got the package from a good friend of mine and it's really cheap and affordable. They own the place too so we stayed there. Clean rooms, they managed well how to maximize their space (We occupied three of their rooms) but one thing that I can't forget is the water. It smells and taste like rust. We're using mineral water to brush our teeth back then. But over-all, we had a good stay there because of their good quality service. People are very friendly. I also loved our free breakfast meals at Tio Rod's. (That's the resto beside that hotel and they own it too.)
