“Backpacker's Haven”
Reviewed October 19, 2010

I went to Puerto Princesa City, Palawan for a conference for a couple of days. This hotel has the perfect location in the city. Everything was a walking distance. Convenient and Homey! And its a backpacker's haven.

There was a pick up service from the airport to the hotel itself and even dropped me off on my departure back to Manila. I chose to stay on their standard room. It has the basic necessities which a solo travel/backpacker needs - bed, cabinet, t.v. with cable and an a.c. It's clean, simple, quiet and homey. They also have this small and cozy living room outside my room which I love. One thing I also love about this place was their tight security. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, their staff was very accommodating!

This hotel is worth your money!What else can you ask for. Everything a backpacker or solo traveler needs is here!

My friends (3pax) and I went to Puerto Princessa for our holidays. The travel agent who booked us at One Rover's Place assured us that we will have a good time. Upon check-in the reception area smells like a pet shop, the receptionist was not accommodating, they gave us pandan juice as a welcome drink which didn't taste like pandan juice at all; more like water with coloring.

When we stepped in our room there were only two beds set, they know that we will be arriving and didn't set up three beds. We still have to call their housekeeping for them to set it up. The bathroom was so small and when we opened the faucet the water was color brown we have to open it for quite some time to remove the color; its even worse because when we washed our hands the smells like rust!

The place badly needs a renovation and staff service orientation!
