Sotera Mansion
Ranked #37 of 199 Puerto Princesa B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We initially stayed on a different hotel during our outdoor activities in Puerto Princesa palawan. We are in need of a bigger space and an outdoor pool for the kids but when my sister and her family headed back to Manila, I, mom and my boyfriend was left, we have to choose another accommodation for one more night before going back home. I considered some hotels that I never get the patient to wait for their confirmation that they booked me a room so I asked a close friend on which hotel they stayed in during their trip. I was then directed to Sotera's mansion. I reserved a room through their website and got an email. I was not comfortable with it though as they never contacted me or asked for a down payment unlike any other hotels do. When we arrived in palawan, I sent an SMS to the number allocated on their website an got an immediate call. I was told they didn't reserve a room as they have not received any online. I'm wondering though why they get a website and a reservation site yet they have not received it. Anyway, I was told that they can accommodate me which I felt happy about.
We get to their hotel and was directed to door 4. It was a huge room with 3 more rooms inside, a kitchen, a bathroom and a living room. We were given a small room which they considered a standard room with extra bed. I was fine with it with the money I pay for. It has an air conditioned which made me feel comfortable though it made the living room, kitchen and the bathroom really humid due to the heat released by the AC of our room as the back part of it is also inside the big room.
The bed was okay, it was clean. I just got some problems with the bathroom door knob. It was broken, my mom was trapped inside so I have to call their attention to get it sorted. They have to remove the door knob to get my mom out of it. We were asked if it is okay to have a broken door since it was only the three of us to stay in the big room so I said it was fine.
The main door is a bit weird too. It won't open with the keys even my mom and I tried it out so I have to call the helper again. It was opened with no effort on his face. Maybe he was jsut used it with it or is it me not wanting to break any of their property and asked to pay for it.
Overall, It was a nice place to stay since it is very close to the airport and the city. It is only 5-10 minutes to the airport and the NCCC mall which is in their city. You can even get to the city by foot. The staffs were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is included as well. One thing that makes the stay wonderful is the money you pay after, it is very budget friendly for a very good sleep you get.

Room Tip: Don't choose room 4 if you are staying as a group. the A/C of one room is inside so it makes the...

My family celebrated Christmas in Palawan and we stayed at Sotera's Mansion for four days.

There were seven of us (five adults & two kids) and we were comfortably accommodated at Room 9 in the 3rd floor. The room is big enough for 8 adults, is conducive for resting after a whole day of touring, and the staff are very courteous, helpful, accommodating. The place is also located at the heart of Puerto Princesa and is very accessible to various transportation. For the rates they're asking, it is indeed a very great deal.

We'll be staying again in this place when we come back (hopefully soon) and I'm recommending this pension house to other travellers, especially families, who are planning to see the wonders of Palawan.
