    This hotel is located 1 km from the airport in Rizal Avenue which is an excellent location as all the good restaurants are nearby and walking distance to the centre of town. Rooms with refrigerator, a/c and cable tv are around 1,200 per night and i suggest you try to book rooms 18,19 and 20 that are located furthest from the road, they are on the second floor and have a nice terrace to relax. There is a restaurant in the middle of their courtyard which serves surprisingly good food at reasonable prices. Try the spicy thai beef, you won't be disappointed. The ticket office for permits to visit the underground river is at the front of the hotel.

Puerto Princesa Accommodations

by cruelsan


Just discovered that my travel dates (27-30 Nov) are considered peak season in PP. Most guest houses I called, including Casa Linda, are fully booked. They referred BADJAO INN to me. Any feedback? Also appreciate other recommendations. Thanks! : )

There are 5 reviews of this property on Trip Advisor, from those reviews I would guess this would be about a 1/2* property, nothing really bad about it but nothing spectacular either.

Thanks, checked the reviews. Now torn between VICTORIA GUEST HOUSE and BADJAO INN. :(

Hi Sansan. If I recall right, Badjao Inn is close (if not adjacent) to Casa Linda, about 5 mins from the airport. Try this site for more options:

HI there,

You may want to try Case pensione. PLs find the time to read my article about it.
We stayed there last nov 26-29 while some of my friends had gone to BAdjao INn, they were reluctant at first but due to high rate of visitors that time, they had no other choice.

Puerto Princesa Accommodations

Now I'm really confused about my choices hehe:
1. Victoria Guest House - referred by a friend. Super cheap but no TV and no hot & cold shower. Plus no reviews found online.
2. Badjao Inn - affordable. But mixed reviews online, mostly coz of insects?
3. Balay Inato - read at least two good reviews/blogs. looks good. relatively affordable and accepts credit card. but a little far from city proper?
4. Hibiscus Garden Inn - place looks good in their webpage. Haven't read reviews yet. a little over my projected max budget (1.8k/rm/night).

Feedback anyone? Appreciate your views. Many thanks!
