Balay Inato Pension
Ranked #29 of 199 Puerto Princesa B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 5, 2013

It was quite hard for me to choose the "right" hotel when I am travelling with my kids. They have lots of needs and one of them is easy access to food. The restaurant, together with their food and staff, were simply the best. Service with a smile. The room was big and nice. Not overly decorated. It was a home away from home. You can let your kids roam around and know they are safe. We were even allow early check in. Airport transfers were quick and easy. Everyone is so nice. They even have the time to talk to their guest, check their situation, offer their help and make your stay enjoyable. Highly recommended for those traveling with tours as they are only 3 minutes away from the airport. Room charges comes with free breakfast. Price is good ranging from 1K-2K for 2-4 pax.

VALUE FOR MONEY

Compared to other pension houses, BB and inns I have seen in Puerto Princesa during the tour pick up, I completely believe that Balay Inato is definitely worth your money. It is affordable (1,200php- 1,400php) a night with big, clean and spacious rooms complete with basic facility like TV, fan, cabinet, mini refrigerator, AC, private bathroom. They also provide clean towels and toiletries like shampoo, conditioner,soap and toothpastes. They also clean the room everyday and change the linens everyday. They also serve delicious breakfasts in time.

LOCATION

Superb location indeed! Few minutes away from the Puerto Princesa Airport, and like 10-15 minutes away from the famous resto like Kinabuch and Kalui. The place has their own restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, mostly charcoal grilled foods.

STAFF/ SERVICE

They were all very accomodating. On our last day, they let us took shower in their guest room even if we already checked out, since we arrived late from the island tour and we are pass late our boarding time to our flight back to Manila. They helped us and gave us fast airport transfer. Good thing we made it to our flight.


*They do not have a swimming pool or a fitness center.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room closer to the router which is basically near at the reception desk. (Stronger...

We stayed in a room good for four people. Comfortable beds and clean ensuite.

During our stay, the hotel experienced power interruptions at least four times. I think the hotel has a standby generator so the interruption only lasted for a minute i think.

They also have a restaurant where they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. We didn't have to go anywhere else to eat after a day seeing the sights.

Balay Inato has a lively vibe you won't find anywhere else in Palawan i believe. Five TA circles for this hotel!

Balay Inato is just 3 minutes away from the airport and only a couple of minutes away from the good bars and restaurants in Puerto Princesa, such as Kinabuch and Kalui. We always got picked up first during tours so we always got the good seats.

The rooms were spacious and clean, toiletries are provided and replenished daily, the hot water works, and the courtyard was very spacious and quiet. I will definitely recommend this

With its location, only few mins. away from the airport and city proper yet the rates are affordable. The rooms are clean and spacious . The staff are very friendly and helpful especially Dave and Carl. They allowed us to stay in their music room past our check -out time for a very minimal fee because our flight to Manila was delayed. Not to mention their reception area where my husband loves to stay and do his thing. Having a restaurant is also a plus with a very accommodating staff. They made our 1st visit to Puerto Princesa more memorable. We will definitely stay again in this place the next time we visit PPS. This place is highly recommended.

Got this place through a package tour deal & also liked the reviews written here. 5 mins away from the airport, spacious & clean. The staff was very attentive to our needs. The lil huts they had was nice to hang out in. The restaurant was a plus, try the halo-halo. My only issue was the music. They had a loud speaker near the huts/restaurant area. It's the tropical islands, I wish they played REGGAE music instead of sappy songs or Gangnam style. But other than that, this budget-friendly place is highly recommendable.

The staffs were friendly and accommodating especially Carl and Dave.Having a restaurant of their own is very convenient. We would definitely stay again next time when we will come back to Palawan.
