                  clean room and kind staff

                  last week, i stayed 6 days. it was center of puerto princesa, so very close to go anywhere, many restaurant. room was clean. and staff was kind. when i went to travel agency, dolphin watching and firefly watching was impossible to make a reservation. because we were only 2 person and wave was strong. but the pension staff made a reservation. they gave us a ride to firefly watching.

                  friendly and accommodating staff

                  It's my 3rd visit in Puerto Princesa City and in each visit I have different stories to tell. This time, I stayed in a low-budgeted hotel. But the comfort in sleeping was the same as the other two hotels I stayed before. Only this time, the hotel I stayed for 3 days is very much accessible to restaurants/coffee bars/diners/fastfoods, mall and banks, a few steps away literally. The staff are very friendly/accommodating (though of course, this is what business needed most). If In the near future and wish to come back for the 4th time, surely I will choose to stay in this hotel again.

                  one of my travel companions has a brother who resides in puerto. the original plan was to stay with him. not knowing what his residence is like, i reserved a room at alta city pension as my plan b. 1. friendly front desk employee: bernadette was very helpful. our room was not ready when we arrived so she took care of our luggage which was placed in our room later. she also allowed us to leave our luggage with her when we joined the day trip to the underground river. 2. candle for the short brown-out we were immediately provided a small lighted candle during the short brownout.

                  We booked our room the night before and checked in without hassle. Alta City is pretty much how it describes itself. It's not the kind of place you will stay at for days because it is beautiful and charming. You will stay here because you need a room for a night or two and appreciates the convenience and basic comforts. The room and attached bathroom was clean and surprisingly spacious. Staff was very helpful with directions and places to go.

                  Our stay in this pension house is very comfortable. The place is near the city Capitol, about 10-15 mins from the airport (minus traffic), within walking distance from restaurants, and the public market. The size of the room assigned to us is enough to probably accommodate a group of eight. Hence, for a couple the room was very spacious. The bathroom was clean which is a very important consideration for me personally when choosing an accommodation. Overall, it is a good place to stay.

                  location, size of room and helpful staff

                  Alta City Hotel is a conveniently located hotel with basic, clean rooms. It's perfect for a stopover (especially if you are travelling to/from El Nido). Staff were helpful although breakfast was slow. Can recommend any of the '01' rooms - 201, 301, as they are the larger rooms at the end of the building. Location is somewhat noisy but this a small price to pay for convenience. It's also set back from the road which is nice. Discovered Plumberry Spa in plaza down road, opposite side of road (towards McDonalds). Great spa treatments at super affordable prices. We treated ourselves to the works - not once, but three times!! Chemist outside entrance to hotel was also terrific for water / snack purchases. Tiki Bar opposite hotel was also great for entertainment.

However, the photos that have been uploaded are quite deceiving due to the surrounding areas of the pension house. The pension house is behind the appliances store in which you have to walk into a narrow street with nearby slums to reach the rooms.

Delivery is allowed and they even assists delivery guy to find our room. They also informed you when your tour provider already confirmed time of pick up. They also allow us to check out as late as 1:00 PM without additional charge. Hotel furniture can be improved, like bigger dining table which we used when they deliver the breakfast every morning. Might be good as well to change the flat sheet to a thicker one or comforter perhaps. Easy to find and just minutes away via tricycle ride from airport. Fast food restaurants including Jollibee, Chowking, Shakeys and Greenwich is just walking distance from hotel and a convenience store is also available just steps away from hotel. Besides the Karaoke establishment nearby which is noisy at nights but bearable (for us), the hotel which is entirely for the use of rest and comfortable sleep at night, all in all its exactly what we need.
