May not be the best, but it's satisfyingly good 👍
Together with my family, we stayed here last July 4-7. (We booked from a travel agency.) Everything in our tour was great! JLais Pension House made it more memorable. Place: The house is just along the city that you can reach the airport in just 5 mins, a mall across the street, different restos outside, and a local market 5 mins away (riding a tricycle) where we bought dangit. ☺ Room: Yes, it's kind of creepy at first as it looks old. But it is equipped with cabled TV, AC and shower. (We didn't get to use the shower as we are not instructed to operate it 😢) Also, it was clean and they did ask our permission in cleaning our room. Staffs: The staff were courteous and friendly. They also helped us with our laundry. Free ride to airport (vice versa) is a plus! Overall: it was a nice experience staying here for a short period of time. Though the house has some cons, the staffs and convenience compensated it. ☺

low-cost and quite satisfying
typical filipino bedroom, and average looking. free breakfast was served at the terrace. free wifi! the location is quite good since it is very close to the city restaurants. nice and accommodating staffs.

Cheap and good location
PROS: -Location (3 minutes walk to main street) -Free transfers -Free wifi CONS: -Some staff are not so accomodating. They lack courtesy. -No choice for breakfast. You eat what they serve. -One time the water is off! We were not able to shower. -Laundry service is bad. We were leaving that morning and our clothes were still a bit damp and still hanging outside. We took them ourselves because we were in hurry already. -One morning around 7:00am, they were playing loud -and I mean LOUD- music from the reception. I'm quite sure it woke up other guests. If you just need a place to sleep for few nights, then it is good enough for its price.

Me and my friends booked a Palawan tour at one of the agencies at Puerto Princesa for a 4days 3 nights. We enjoyed every tour we had from Underground river to City tour.. What we don't like most in our stay is here at J-lais!!!! First thing first, the owner didn't even greet us.. They're not accommodating at all!!! They turn off the water!!! And We really don't like the breakfast they prepare...they even didn't ask us what are the choices for breakfast.. Taste are terrible!!! They even don't ask permission to clean the room when in fact our things are left there! And lastly, the owner kept on pushing us to leave the hotel early!!!! Oooooohhh ggggooooossshhhhhh!!!! Not a good place so as not a good people! 😡😡😡😡

Not that impressed
We didn't have any big problems here, but there are nicer places to stay for the same amount of money in Puerto Princesa. The room is small and grimy feeling because it's old. It's close to a lot of restaurants and the main part of town, so that is a plus. Also, the free airport transfer is a nice bonus. Again, no real complaints but I would not stay here again.
