Everything more than perfect!”

Price, Breakfast, Room, Kindness!

For a very cheap price I got a very clean and big room with aircon, the airport transfer, a delicious breakfast (8 options) and smiles 24 hours a day! The staff is very nice and kind. The only one low point is the location, pretty far from the city center, but that isn't a big deal because with 40 pesos and 5 min tricicle (20/25 min by walk) you can reach pretty much everywhere.

Clean and safe place in Palawan”

Very friendly and safe!!

Good things-Friendly and welcoming staff, clean room and a big trash can, free bf and a wakeup calls, tour services, free pick up and drop off at the airport. Bad things-Many hidden charges in the tour packages such as in Honda Bay tour where the permit fee and the basic equipment rental of a mask and water shoes are not included. Staff asked for 140 permit fee even the cave trip was cancelled due to the weather or other reasons of the tour company and not due to the guest's decison to cancel.

Customer Service

Would highly recommend this place. Value for money all round. The staff could not have done more for us.Reasonable breakfast if a little limited, but the beers are cold and they will cook on demand. You can even order out our food when required. In a safe out of the way neighbourhood. Rooms are clean and very new. You can also book tours through the front desk.

Quite far from the city center but quiet place”

Quiet place, somewhat rural

the hotel does not have airport transfers, so we have to find our transport. luckily, the place is known to the local transportation group, motorized tricycles. this is our third visit to puerto princesa, so i know that most hotels have airport transfers. there are very few things the hotel staff can do for you, they're not very helpful. they offer only free breakfast that i found so-so, enough to make u survive, nothing else. other than that, the room is okay, but the linens are of low quality, with just one towel. fortunately, we just wanted a place to sleep, because we went to tourist spots of the island.

good location, spacious and very clean rooms, extraordinary friendly staff

we can only recommend this accommodation! it started with a free pick up (and later also drop off) from/to the airport by the very friendly owner of the pension. if you do just a stop over to other places than puerto princesa, this is the perfect location as it is only 10mins from the airport. but even if you stay there, other places are not far, there is always tricycles around and the hotel staff is always willing to help you organizing your trip or book tours for you. the rooms are simple but quite spacious and very clean (also the sheets). beds are very comfortable. they have an a/c and enough room to put your personal things. the staff is extraordinary friendly and willing to help with everything. very sweet. really nothing to complain!

スタッフの対応が行き届いている。”

ホテル側従業員、ボスの対応がバッチシ!困ったことがあったら相談に乗ってくれます。

部屋は清潔。ほどよい広さで好感がもてます。また、玄関は2重ドア方式で、レセプションでは防犯カメラもバッチリだったのでセキュリティ面も安心できます。 ロケーションは、市街から少し離れているので、最初はわかりづらかったです。 バイクをレンタルする場合は、ホテル付近の地図を従業員に書いてもらったほうがベターです。 嫌な顔せず、笑顔で対応してくれます。 また、一泊の滞在でしたが滞在中にトラブルが発生したのですが、(バイクレンタルする際にパスポートを預けるのですが、旅のツレが翌朝早朝のフライトなのに既に店がクローズしていた為、パスポートが手元にない状態)このホテルのボスに相談したところ、手際よく対処してくれなんとレンタルバイク側の人間がホテルまでパスポートを届けてくれるよう段取りつけてくれました。 この対応力には圧巻でした。 また、帰りの際は空港まで送ってくれ何一つ不満なく、非常に気持ちの良い滞在でした。 彼らの[you're welcome]は、妙に耳に心地よかったです。

スタッフがとても親切。ついでに宿泊客もとても親切。こちらでの宿泊の後のホテルを取っていなかったので相談したら、1時間以上も嫌な顔ひとつせず一緒に検索したり電話で問い合わせしてくれたり、他にもなにか聞くととても感じよく応対してくれた。小さい町なので他の殆どの宿泊施設同様、地理的にも問題なし。地底河川やホンダベイツアーの手配もしてくれる。食事は最低限のものが出てくる程度(ごはんと一品)だが、問題なし。部屋のカーテンの陰に小さな蟻が何匹かいたけれどこれは諦めるしかないかも。同じ日にいた他の宿泊客もとても感じがよく、一緒に出かけたりして楽しい滞在でした。
