Review by Traveloka users

1 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

The staffs are kind but the place is not really 10mins away from the airport because of the new International airport. There are lots of mosquitoes when we stayed maybe because it’s raining. So better bring a modquito repellant.

Very Bad
Very Good
Value for money: 4/5 There were some misunderstanding with their prices as the posted prices on their website is outdated. Location: 5/5 Very near to the new PP International Airport. Has free shuttle service to and fro the airport. Staff Performance: 4/5 Friendly and courteous staff Property condition/Facilities 2/5 The area outside rooms are well-maintained. Rooms are not equally maintained as our room was a bit disappointing. Yes, it was clean but has some anay starting to occupy the bathroom wall. No shower curtain, insufficient and defective electrical sockets (our room has only 1 working socket). Has some mosquitoes and insects inside the room. Poor water supply on the bathroom lavatory. No clothes hanger or a table wherein you can put your bags. No wifi inside rooms just at the common area only. Overall: Okay place

Basic Budget Stay - Good for a Night
This is a basic nonsense budget hotel that is in need of some TLC. The lady who manages the place is very nice. They offer free airport shuttle which is convenient. Both the rooms and breakfast are basic. The location is good and walking distance to most restaurants. This is a good option for a quick one night stay if you are looking to get in and out of Puerto Princessa quickly given it's so close to the airport. No Wi-Fi in the rooms. Our shower was broken and didn't work.

A stay worth a repeat
Our trip to Palawan was so "spur of the monent" that the travel agency had to fit us into some crazy schedule to be accomodated :) We were in Palawan for 3 nights and 4 days. Our schedule was so crazy that made our accomodation at Balai falicisima a 2 separate nights affair as we are to travel to El Nido on the second day and would have to spend the 2nd night there. The balai staff made everything flexible for us that they allowed us to leave some of our stuff that we won't be needing in El Nido inside our room even though the room was not paid for the second night. The room is clean and the toilet and bath is pristine. It was our home in Palawan and it really felt like one. The accomodating staff coupled with the cleanliness of the room and the proximity of the place to where all the action is made the "spur of the moment" vacation worth the money spent and more.

Good for one night stay
I stayed there one night to catch the next day flight. There was obviously yellow fluid on the toilet seat when I checked in the room the first time, and the shower head kept falling down, but it's not the end of the world. Everything else was fine. Staff was always friendly. Wifi is free and quite fast at the reception. My room was number 7, the farthest one from the reception, so there's no wifi signal in the room.

the worst in our 1month holiday
The room was sparsely fitted. For a price of php2100 a night, i was expecting better accommodation. The bed sheets and towels were old and thin, aircon was not able to cool the entire room, bath & toilet were substandard. Since there is no partition between the shower and toilet, water from the shower will wet the entire bathroom. Sink was disgusting. My kids were discouraged from brushing their teeth. Service was poor and staff was not accommodating. I requested extra hangers since we had wet clothes from our beach escapade from el nido but was not provided. Location was not convenient and can be unsecure. The "leisurely walk" that was stated on the website was untrue. It was already dark when we arrived at 630 pm from el nido and a 5min walk from the road on uneven dirt path with no proper street lighting and kids and bags in tow was an unwelcome experience. The tricycle driver was not familiar with the name and initially drove us to a different accommodation. While hanging in the reception cum kitchen area organising our early trip back to Cebu, I witnessed another guest requesting air freshener for his room. The staff gave an almost empty spray bottle that the guest refused to accept. The guest also had to followup the clean towels requested since the staff forgot to provide. My point: the price is not cheap. I can easily find cheaper hotels elsewhere in the city. Service and accommodation should have been better. Management should revisit their pricing, website advertisement and services as all of them are not aligned. I was too distraught to take photos.
