“Very much felt at home!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

We stayed here last March 25-28, 2014 and our stay was a very memorable one. I guess it's because aside from the ambiance and cleanliness, it's whom you're with that makes the stay very memorable and fun!

We were a family of 6 so we stayed in the "Dormitory". The room was very spacious and super clean and smelled so fragrant! Tissue was generously provided which is a plus plus for me! The air conditioning was very cold that even when the door's open, the room still stayed cold. The double beds were very cute and comfortable, even the pillows! They had LCD tv in the room with cable of course. And although WiFi is not accessible in the rooms, this was not a problem for us because we brought our portable WiFi with us. As for breakfast, it was okay. What really surprised me is that they served SPAM (not Ma-Ling) which I didn't expect when they wrote Spam-si-log as one of the choices for breakfast. In terms of location, pasalubong site, hospital, and baywalk area was very accessible (like 2-3mins) away. As for the airport, it would probably take 10mins due to slight traffic. As for tourist destinations, Honda Bay was 30mins away from the hotel and 2 hours away from PP Underground River. As for amenities, there's none, but it's okay 'coz we didn't go there for the amenities.

So if you're looking for an affordable and home-like place to stay, I recommend Ascendo Suites. Trust me, you won't regret it! :-)

For Affordable price, this hotel was good;
PRO's

4. very attentive staff.

CON's
1. No wifi at the room.
2. they dont allow to extend ur stay par per hour :( thats so sad for us that our flight go back to manila was 6:00pm. We must leave at the room exactly 2:00pm and stayed at the lobby for couple of hours.

Been to Palawan last May 2013 and stayed at this hotel while in Puerto Princesa. The hotel was good but can definitely do better.

Pros:
1. New - opened this year.
2. Rooms are spacious and clean.
3. Affordable.
4. Located near the good restaurants in Puerto Princesa as well as the "tiangge" and public market.

Cons:
1. We have our own table and chairs within our room but we cannot have our free breakfast there. Instead we still have to go out of the hotel to the canteen beside it.
2. Hotel can use more employees. While there, they seem to be screening new applicants.
3. It's a little muddy outside the hotel which gets carried in. I wish they can clean the reception area quicker.

Overall, we had a very good experience staying here. Special thanks to Ma'am Judy who was prompt in her replies and took care of our needs while staying at the hotel.
