        The Unknown Pension House”

        Actually the place looks old, but the benefits of it are a lot ! Nearby Baywalk in less than 300meters only and you can ride 1 tricycle anywhere you want to go in the city! Tricycle is worth 10 pesos only! The breakfast was really good! They also value their clients or guests! they are very friendly ! They even have a security guard at night! Food Stalls are nearby and there is a travel agency downstairs where you can book your daily tours in Puerto Princesa and El Nido! Good Choice for an accommodation.! Don't expect too much from the hotel when it looks to apperance, but you'll enjoy your stay here I promise!

        Disappointing”

        The first room that was given to us has no tv signal and the remote is not working. There's a lot of mosquitoes. When we transferred to another room, the tv and remote is working but channels are not that clear and group of mosquitoes again. Aircon is so low even it is in maximum temperature. CR has no bidet. The soap holder has sharp edge and has rust. I got wound and need to ask for their first aid kit. Staff is not in the reception all the time so you need to bell the ring to get their attention. One thing I like, walking distance to PP Baywalk.

        Good service, great location but small room”

        Its location is very near the baywalk, church, computer shops, seafood restaurant, public market

        The hotel employees are nice. Airport transfer is free so better contact them before your arrival in Puerto Princesa airport. Good location because it is very near the places that you would like to go to at day and night. Breakfast is promptly served and you can choose between coffee and tea but they always serve meat so for those who do not eat meat, you can buy from the store outside the hotel. The rooms are small and only tissue and small soap are given for the whole stay. They do not clean rooms regularly so the guest should ask the receptionist for cleaning the room.

        Well-maintained rooms and looks new”

        Near baywalk, plaza cuartel, cathedral, palawan museum and public market

        the room looks new, nice and properly maintained. its actually very good for a pension house. aircon is working properly, there's a hot shower, cable flat tv, intercom and wifi. the wifi connection though is not good especially in the morning.it get disconnected every 5 minutes but at night the connection is good.the breakfast provided by the pension house is okey but you cannot choose. there's only one menu per day.the staff are friendly though and always smiling but they do not change the towels and clean the room everyday unless you ask.this is maybe because it's only a pension house and not a hotel. only 1 roll of tissue and 1 small soap were provided for the duration of our stay, but you can buy those at the sari-sari store infront of the pension house.on the plus side, the baywalk is just a 3-minute walk and so is the public market. other attractions are also walking distance, so there's no need to take a tricycle.

        Near the market

        The night staff was very accomodating, helped us with our reservation at Ka Lui, and the underground river cave. If part of your itenerary is buying fish from the market to take home, then this is the right place for you since the palengke is just a short walk from here. There is also a convenience store infront of the pension which is a big plus if you need to buy drinking water or anything else for that matter.

        "Its a cozy pension house"”

        It is a walking distance to the Immaculate Conception Church where I could attend the daily 6:00 a.m. mass

        wonderful and we had a lot of fun and experiences. we're thankful too to the owner of the pension house that we were serviced to the airport instead of waiting for our friend tricycle driver.

        decent value for one night”

        staff was very professional and friendly. best thing about my experience. room/property is adequate for one night stay but wouldn't recommend for much more. wifi is pretty poor and breakfast average (real coffee would be a major improvement). bathroom clean but needs a shelf/cabinet for toiletries. not much nearby for dining.
