“budget hotel...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2011

with airport transfer, cold welcome drinks and courteous driver n staff as advertised. cr facilities in the lobby seemed rusty and old. complete room amenities for the budget, with strong wifi since wifi repeater is right outside the room. convenience store is in the same building on the left side entrance door of restaurant while tour agencies are on the other entrance of the hotel lobby. free breakfast is tasty n adequate for a 599 promo. location is conveniently on an intersection of the north hiway. be careful of trike drivers within the hotel lobby, some took advantage of us to the point that it becomes soo annoying they force themselves to do the tours when this happens look for trike transport on the restaurant side entrance for hassle free ride. one male staff in the front desk took the initiative to book us a tour even in the wee hours of the night, while a female front desk ruined my supposed to be very good rating of this hotel upon our check-out. she overlooked the charges on the bills and the hotel ended up at a loss, but paid them in full..... two weeks after though and P50 pesos more because of the bank to bank deposit which i would have deducted on the bill but never mind because they were "apologotic" enough to acknowledge their mistake, thats more important.

Room Tip: rooms near the elevator and stairs are quieter. rm310 has very strong wifi but bit noisy since its...

A&A offers free airport transfers but was not there when we arrived. After 45 minutes of being hassled by tour operators and drivers, we moved to the tourism office to call them and they did eventually show up.

The hotel is clean. A little garishly decorated. Hot water works. Free breakfast buffet which was quite good.

After a weekend away at the beach, we booked a final night before going back to the airport and were frustrated, after all day on motorbikes, to have to wait for our room to be cleaned, an hour after check-in time. They offered to book us an upgrade if we paid the higher rate.

Parking is limited. Easy to catch tricycle bikes out front to anywhere for about 8 PHP.

We booked the bargain "650 PHP per person" from the hotel website. No window in room, which was not an issue (and noted in advertisement), but it was quite noisy, near the elevators, difficult to sleep.

Also, there was an extremely noxious spray smell that housekeeping used. We left a note the second night to please not spray it...wouldn't work well for those sensitive to smells.

Finally, there were issues with our initially booking through Agoda and cancelling due to a typhoon. After a series of several emails through to management, they gave us a partial refund in spite of the no-refund policy, which was very gracious and appreciated.

Room Tip: Bargain on hotels website - $650 pesos per person includes airport transfer and breakfast, no window...

We stayed in A&A Hotel last August 2011 and we were able to avail of their P599 promo. Promo includes airport transfers, breakfast and wifi. Promo rooms doesn't have windows (we didn't need one). Staff and the manager were so nice. Breakfast is good and tasty! Rooms are A ok and are always clean. It is Chinese-owned so expect everything are made in China. It is in the crossroad of a main highway. It is quite off the city but it is still ok, because you can just ride a tricycle going anywhere. We would really recommend this hotel!

I stayed in A&A Plaza Hotel over the weekend with family and friends. Accommodation included airport transfers, breakfast, and wireless internet. While the rooms our group occupied did not have windows, the efficient air-conditioner and exhaust fan made up for it.

Rooms were not that elegant but was always clean. Restaurant food was alright and also reasonably-priced.

Check-in was smooth but check-out took some time as the front desk staff strangely could not locate my record. Maybe they need to improve on their process flows to avoid similar delays in the future.

I can say that I will stay in A&A Plaza Hotel again when I go back to Puerto Princesa City but will also consider trying and exploring what other hotels located around the city can offer.

We had a very nice trip to Puerto Princesa. They had packages that are really stress-free for couples. My husband and I enjoyed the tours and the very nice restaurants they arranged for us. The room we had was also very clean and nice and they have this fruit basket welcome. Staffs of A&A Plaza are very nice to guests.

A gem of a hotel. The staff are really great, polite and eager to help. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with all the usual stuff(tv, ac, etc). Breakfast was included and is pretty much standard although served in a fancy 4th floor restaurant. The place is a little out of the way from the main shops, bars and eateries but rickshaw drivers are just around the corner and will take you there in under 5 mins. I wouldnt recommend u walk to main area in the dark as like most of the phillipines, there are lots of wild dogs around. Theres no computers for use but there are internet cafes just 2mins walk away. Overall a great stay, better than most 4 star joints.
