From Manila, I arrived at PPS in the afternoon of a Friday and spent the day at the wake of a friend’s mom. It was already 9pm when I asked my friend and his cousin to drive me around the city to help me find a place to stay. We passed by several old pension houses until we reached La Belle Pension, left side before we reached Robinsons mall, along Castro Rd. We inquired for rates and the receptionist allowed us to check the rooms to help me decide. The standard room I checked looks new, clean and furnished with cabinet, side table, double-sized bed topped with bath towel & soap, large mirror, AC and an LCD TV w/ cable. Upon seeing all the basics I need to survive the night (plus the wifi access) , I was easily convinced that this one’s good enough for me. The rate per night inclusive of breakfast is also fairly affordable for a solo traveller like me. I checked in... but my first night was disappointing. The city experience a power interruption around 11:30pm and this pension house doesn’t have its generator! I spent the night with the emergency auto-lights spotted on my bed. I could barely sleep because of the light & hot room temp. No one from the mgt exerted any effort to knock at my door and offer some cooling alternatives. Im too tired to get up and approach them so I just let the night be over. The next morning, I went to the dining area and found a longsilog & instant coffee waiting for me. No breakfast choices, which is understandable for the inexpensive room rates they’re offering. I asked the custodian regarding the generator and she told me that the pension house is just new and they have generator but wasn’t installed yet. Good thing ate Nueve (if I remembered her name right), is kind and accommodating all throughout my stay. She’s the one you can turn to if you wanted your room cleaned and sheets changed. Every guest also has a free access to their small swimming pool. Despite the bad experience I had on my first night, I decided to continue staying to give them a chance and fortunately, no more power interruption for the next 2 nights. Overall, La Belle is one clean, hospitable & modern pension house that needs improvements on things like proactive customer servicing and of course, an installed generator!

We stayed here as a couple this May 2014.The place is relatively new, very nice.The staff are friendly although one needs to be more precise on the requests on the staff. The breakfast is made of small portion so if you have healthy appetite,better buy "supplementary" breakfast. The inn is located within 5 minutes drive to Robinson's shopping center. I recommend staying here for short term stay at Puerto Prinsesa.

We stopped at La belle pension for only one night, but we wish we could have stayed longer! The room we were given was beautifully decorated, brand new furnished/painted and super clean making us feel like we were home from the very beginning. Not even to mention our comfortable beds with proper duvets and a air con which worked properly - a rarity on the Philippines!
What made our stay even more pleasant was the fact that we were able to check in at 8 am instead of 2 pm. After a nervfracking busride from el nido this flexible service without any extra charge really made our day.
The whole guesthouse has a wonderful, peaceful and stylish atmosphere.
Staff are friendly and attentive and help you out in every situation.
Highly recommended.
