        nice staff, quiet surroundings, fast service

        We stayed for 4 days at Matutina Pensionne and it was perfect for us. Apart from being very affordable, it is close to the huge local market, where you can buy whatever you want and let it cook for you. The location itself is very quiet and nicely designed. The owner of the place is super super nice and very helpful, she can organize an airport shuttle and tours for you (some tours have to be booked in advance, so let her know before you arrive). All in all, we were very satisfied and happy to stay at Matutina Pensionne and will miss the nice atmosphere there and Palawan very much! Thank you!

        the room was clean and the a/c worked. it worked so well that we had to turn it off at night. matutina is located close to the cathedral and walking distance to the baywalk. it is in a really good location, since it is within walking distance of three spots in the city tour. malu is really the best. she was very helpful and just went above and beyond to answer all our questions and give us as much information as we needed. she was honest and even let us use her cellphone to call el nido to make another hotel reservation. being in the hospitality industry myself, i can safely say that she is the most hospitable person i have ever met and she really make matutina the place to stay in puerto princesa. thank for all your help.

        Good location, quiet area yet close to the main town

        The owners and staff were extremley friendly and helpful. Located just a short walk or tricycle ride from the bars, shops and restaurants. Our room was spacious with comfortable king bed and large en-suite shower. There are tables and hammocks in the garden area, fast WiFi, drying area for laundry and TV, fridge and AC in the room. I would recomend this Pensionne to anyone and would definitely stay here again.

        Location

        Stay at Matutina Pensionne was convenient to activities but unfortunately lacking in services. Had to request change after 2 days with same bath towels. Booked 3 tours with staff with last being a night outing returning about 9/10pm. Although management locks the entrance at 8pm each night, we had booked the night tour with them and coordinated our late return. We found the entrance locked upon our return with no response from posted telephone numbers. Only when our tour driver seeing our situation, repeatedly sounded his van horn did the maintenance man appear to unlock the entrance. Consequently no further tours were arranged with the staff. Palawan is a very nice island but we will choose a different place to stay on our next visit.

        We stayed in the basic room which had everything needed and was clean and comfortable. Felt welcome and the hostess was happy to help organise transport and trips. Provided maps, recommendations for bars and cafes and umbrellas when it started to rain. Breakfast provided was tasty and we were able to sit in the lovely garden and relax. Location is nice and quiet but it's also easy to get to and from if you want to check out the rest of Puerto.

        Value Motel for those who just need sleep”

        Located a little out of the way of the downtown action, Matutina is really the place to lay your head at night as little else. No pool, no views and not extravagant in room size or accommodations, you have to go to the main hall to access WiFi as well. It isn't THAT far from the city but a little ways to the airport and away from all the downtown tourist spots as well. The front staff are friendly and helpful but if you are an "in-a-rush" type person, you might find yourself frustrated. The WiFi is fast though and the breakfast food isn't bad. Be warned that they padlock the gate at night so hard partying and coming in early might require bell ringing and shouting to get someone to come open up for you.

        Friendly and helpful staff, clean room, great breakfaat

        Staff great! Helpful and ensured we paid the right amount for tricycle. Only 50 pesos from airport and a 10mins tricycle ride. Quiet location. Off the main high street. Not much to see in puerto princesca, good for overnight stay!

        Very clean rooms, extremely friendly & helpful staff, nice residential location

        Incredibly helpful staff. They really were friendly and keen to help organise anything required. The location is quite a nice residential spot a little way back from the main streets, but still only an 8 peso ride from most places in town. The rooms were nice enough. Pretty functional, but wonderfully clean and fresh smelling. Cold water only - at least in our room, which I think was one of the more basic ones. Price was good too. No complaints!

        Nice staff

        I liked the place. Just had the single room which was cheap and ok for the price. The staff and team was very nice, even tried to make better brewed coffea for me. Only thing i didntlike was their door policy. The outside door is always closed, one needs to ring a bell and someone will open. I personally dont like that. Feel controlled that way. But other than that for the price its nice.

        The staff are accommodating, friendly and understanding. The location is good, it is near Plaza Cuartel and Immaculate Concepcion Church. The Pension itself has a good environment inside. It has a relaxing environment. The room we had was clean. My family and friends were very glad with our room. I highly recommend this pension. :)

        Pleasant enclave with good staff”

        A lot of common space; artistic touch of owner is evident; better than average staff

        It's a straight ten-minute trike ride from the airport (10 or 15 pesos). All except the single rooms are quite nice, set in a single building with a nice common area in the middle. The patio where breakfast is served (free) is pleasant all day. The single rooms are somewhat noisy, situated as they are between the congregation points of the office and the outside kitchen.

        It was late night when we arrived. I thought there was no one around but still we managed to wake up the staff. We booked for a fan room but we were given an aircon room. Very clean and quiet

        wifi

        No window in the single room. AC and wifi worked but the room was tiny and felt like a jailcell without a window. Over priced for the area, best to just ask around if not landing very late into puerto.

        Staff, location, and its oasis quality

        This is a family inn that's been well run for years that has a quiet garden, a nice interior sitting area, and a staff that'll arrange tours, transportation, etc. The owner also is one of the Philippines' five craft beer makers, and probably the best of those five--so enjoy your stay!
