We stayed here last July 23-25, and our stay had been very comfortable, save for a short power interruption in the early morning of 24th that left us sweating. That said, let me give some of the nitty gritty stuff:
The staff is accommodating and helpful. They assisted us in making a quick dinner reservation for KaLui the day we arrived, got the rooms thoroughly cleaned when we asked, and woke up really early to prepare breakfast for us so we can start our tours with a full tummy.
Our group is made up of 14 people (11 adults, 2 kids, and a baby), and we only had to get two rooms (room 1 and 2, which I think are the Barkadahan rooms). The room our part of the group (5 adults and 2 kids) got was spacious. It has its own living room where the TV is; in the bedroom are 5 big beds, a clothes rack, a sink, and several drawers; and there are 2 bathrooms, with 1 having a toilet and hot shower and the other with simply a faucet, pail, and dipper. There are a number of sockets spread throughout the room, so we didn't have to fight when it comes to charging our gadgets. With the room costing Php3k something per night, we certainly found it quite affordable.
The wifi was kind of weak and intermittent in the actual bedroom. It's a little more stable in the living room area, but it certainly works a lot better when you're out on the patio.
Breakfast is included in the hotel cost. It's actually really simple; you only get rice, egg, ham or hotdog, and coffee or hot choco. Still, it's quite filling and prepared as early as we need it.
Some might find Sotera Mansion too plain and located in a too quiet a place, but we think it's a perfect place to stay at when visiting Puerto Princesa, especially for those coming in large groups.
