    Favorite hotel in Palawan!”

    We've reviewed this hotel before but this is for our other booking (stayed again bc we loved it so much)! Attention to detail is an understatement. The owners/staff are some of the friendliest/helpful people we came across. They truly made the difference in our stay. Wifi is strong for Puerto Princesa, AC is ice cold, breakfast had an awesome view and they are constantly cleaning the property. Loved it so much we booked 4 additional nights on our way out of Palawan. Thanks Alex!

    Clean, spacious, and comfortable”

    Zen room offers spacious rooms in a friendly family-run setting. Our host provided us with free airport drop-off and pick-up. If you want to go to nearby attractions and malls, they have a tricycle driver that will take you around for a cheaper-than-average rate. The room is very clean and spacious, with a balcony overlooking the bay. AC works great, so is hot water in the shower. Breakfast is basic, but served on the nice rooftop terrance. Overall our stay in very comfortable, and would stay here again if we come back to Puerto Princesa.

    Great little well kept gem (for Philippines :)”

    You couldn’t ask for a nicer family run establishment! Alex and his mom really go the extra mile to help with whatever are your needs. Close to the end of a main street, and certainly within walking distance to a mall (if you can stand the heat but tuk tuks are cheap and plenty if not), the building is built in the shape of a boat. Their father obviously lovingly decorated the hotel with memorabilia thruout, and the deluxe rooms are large and clean, with a small balcony overlooking a couple of typical backyards and a great view of the harbor in the close distance. For breakfast up on the open air 4th floor, you get a better view. Breakfast consists of a slice of spam and fried egg with toast and papaya but if you order Filipino style, you’ll get an extra slice of spam and rice too!

    Budget Hotel in the City”

    Not an exceptional hotel. This is just a pension house but it is clean, accessible to transportation and a few minutes away from the city tourist spots as well as the airport. The receptionist and pension house manager are very accommodating. He even assisted us in booking one of our tours we just though of that moment. A quiet place and with good airconditioning system, WIFI is ok. They provide airport pick up and drop off so that is a plus for me as well.
