“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Who says you can't go home again? I was in Puerto Pension 3 years and loved it. A week ago I went back because I had liked it so much - and partly to test it out. Hurrah. It surpassed all my expectations from the airport pick-up to the airport drop off a week later.
Just a lovely, well-designed place. The minute you step from the street - relatively quiet anyway - into the garden reception area, you feel welcomed.
And the staff here are faultlessly attentive to their guests, nothing servile about their demeanour, just kind and cheerful and aware.
Lovely bamboo building with cozy, comfortable bamboo rooms. So clean. And everywhere there is a welcome emphasis on ecology, including a solar shower.
And to top it all off, the wonderful rooftop restaurant with great views matched by fine food.
Tops.

We love this place. It blends to the simple living of the people in the area but it doesn't mean the place is plain. It is neat, clean and has a nice view upstairs. The location is close to the airport and to the town that it is convenient to walk around at night. Bay walk is just at the back and this made our stay so enjoyable having to taste fresh seafoods with so many varieties with a very reasonable price. Wi-fi is great as well as the staff. We will come back to this place again!

In fairness, we had spent two weeks (prior to coming to Puerto Princesa) in PARADISE (Coron and El Nido). So coming to Puerto was a bit of a downer. People and cars and noise everywhere (gah!).

We really did like the Puerto Pension though. The rooms are clean and nice, the courtyard is tranquil and beautiful. The wireless service was great! The restaurant upstairs was fine, certainly easier than trying to find someplace else to go in the blur of the city.

If I had it to do over, I would have skipped Puerto Princesa all together and stayed in El Nido for an extra two days. Hindsight....

Rustic, old style Filipino decor. Rooms were a bit small but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. The view from 4th floor dining room was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Walking distance to Baywalk.

My family and I chose this place based on the traditional decor and its price. It was a great value for the money. Staff is very friendly, although service in the restaurant can be extremely slow. The food wasn't bad, though, and we ended up eating there several times because if the convienence. Tours were great, and the outside courtyard is really homey and inviting. A great find for us!

A tiny bit more expensive than some pensions in Puerto but well worth it. The rooms are cool, very clean, fridge and mini bar, TV, but without loosing any character. The little walkway outside you room has a table and chairs so you can sit and socialise out there if you like. The staff were very helpful and friendly and out of all the places I have stayed in Puerto it is easy the best.

I had a great stay here! Feels like home.. Rooms were clean, staffs were all friendly and accomodating. Perfect location (walking distance to the baywalk area and the cathedral. They also serve free breakfast.
Room rates were a lil' bit higher compared to other pension houses but it is worth it! Perfect stay for a vacation/business trip. Highly recommended indeed! 2 thumbs up
