        Welcoming and comfortable stay”

        Staff, room size and general vibe

        Arnaldo's was not what we expected. The property is set back from the main street (Slightly hard to find) where we entered through a closed off gate. Behind the gate is this beautiful guesthouse with garden and generally nice atmosphere, blocking out all the chaos of the main road. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Included breakfast was basic (eggs, toast and fruit) but very good. We stayed in the main building facing the street and our ensuite room was extremely comfortable and much needed after our adventure to El Nido. So many homely touches added to the experience. The air con worked fine and bathroom was clean. The wifi worked on and off in our room, sort of better closer to the router, but the issues were mainly due to errors with the network provider. This place also didn't hurt our backpacker budget, especially considering that it only cost $1 more than Alta City Pension and was 10x better in so many ways. We will definitely be back.

        Would definitely recommend the place. It's just one tricycle away from the airport. The place is so accessible as it is located near the tourist spots in downtown Puerto Princesa. You can even walk if you like exploring. The staff was so nice and accomodating. The place is so clean and well-maintained. So overall we were satisfied of our stay there.

        The shower in the toilet need more pressure to pump the water up. Overall the place was amazing. It feels very homey. Comfortable room, living room and a balcony for hang out. The staff is very friendly and pick us up from airport and back for free of charge, must contact the hotel staff for flight info. Breakfast was serve at the balcony and good food.

        Good Location / Staff Needs Improvement”

        Location, cleanliness, spacious room

        When we arrived a little early than the check in time of 2PM the staff told us they have upgraded our room to the Garden View and we just have to pay an additional Php200. I said no thanks and we're fine with the standard room I originally booked. The staff phoned in probably the owner of the place and asked about my "demand" after their conversation the staff told me that all the rooms are standard rooms are fully booked, so I asked her how can it be fully booked when I am standing in front of her not checked in on one of the rooms I booked? She said nothing. I said we'll go back at 2PM as there's no need for us to check in right away that may be causing the problem. When we got back they still checked us in at the Garden Room, but didn't pay the additonal Php200 that they are asking. In the end they allowed other people to book the room we booked. This is not how you should do business.

        Wasn't able to use the 2 different bookings that I paid for. Really bad experience. ”

        I had a confirmed booking with them for 1 night which was booked last October 4 and paid using my debit card for the stay on November 2. But when we were about to check-in, had been ringing the front and back door bell for almost 30 minutes and nobody answered. I gave a call to the property's mobile number and a woman answered, told me that they were at the memorial park and that they were not expecting any guest as the property is fully booked. There was no staff around as well. She told me that Agoda didn't forward them any information about my booking, which I knew she was lying but I don't have the time to argue with her over the phone. And the previous night, I made a separate booking with them while we were on the way from El Nido to Puerto Princesa. We were also not able to use that booking because nobody was opening the gates when we were ringing them for almost an hour. They are unreliable. I love Agoda and my overall Palawan experience, but not this property.

        location is very good. near Mcdonalds and jolibee.”

        location,aircon,cheap

        located in city center, this hotel provides one-day tour and McDonald breakfast. everything was fine for me. However, WIFI was so weak and slow in the room I stayed. Nobody would believe that it took for me to download 10 MB file for 10 minutes In this hotel. The owner must use 51kb modem in 21th century.

        OK for budget travelers”

        clean room and nice location

        Clean room and nice location. Near McDonald's only 3-minute walk. To the airport is about 15-20 minutes walk. Staffs are nice and polite. Problem with water pressure so the toilet and shower did not work very well, bucket shower on the 2nd day and no hot water. Internet connection worked fine when we used it on the 1st floor, not the room. Have to lock the front gate every time we come in and out. OK for budget travelers.

        Not worth your money”

        We arrived late and the owner was surprised we were coming at all. Don’t know whose fault was that... the second morning we found that our toilet was leaking and we let them know about that during breakfast. Owner turned off the water and didn’t tell us what was happening not before I went to ask. They told that the repairman is coming in the evening 7pm. So far water was till turned off. After 6pm we got a new room... which toilet was leaking again. We didn’t even bother to go back to tell them. The roof is leaking with rain. We had bags in the corner of the room and those were wet after heavy rain. Overpriced

        Penny-pinching place”

        Strategic location, affordable, clean

        My groupmates were not happy with the service because there was no complimentary airport transfers, free breakfast does not include coffee, only one roll of toilet paper was given for free during our entire 5-day stay at Arnaldos! All these would not have been so bad had we been informed of these exclusions upon booking!
