                Everything is good except the served breakfast. 100 pesos for breakfast is not worth it. Better eat at balinsasayaw restaurant for your breakfast at 69 pesos. This resto is just in front of the hotel.

All staffs are really helpful and have initiative even we had not asked that makes me really enjoy my stay and highly recommend this place. The location of the Alta city pension is also comfortable in the middle of the city and easy to roam around to have some food or night life in Palawan.

                last week, i stayed 6 days. it was center of puerto princesa, so very close to go anywhere, many restaurant. room was clean. and staff was kind. when i went to travel agency, dolphin watching and firefly watching was impossible to make a reservation. because we were only 2 person and wave was strong. but the pension staff made a reservation. they gave us a ride to firefly watching.

                It is located in an alley just off Rizal Avenue. Easy to find from the provided maps on website. The building is exactly as is shown here. The room was a typical budget room, a little depressing but it had aircon. I'm not surprised that they dont show photos of the room. They provide hot and cold water. It is quite difficult to cross the main road at this point, be very careful. There's no breakfast provided. It's main attraction is the central location.

                Noisy, basic, clean enough.”

                We stayed in the aircon shared bathroom room with two twin beds. It was a very basic room. Central location and close to the airport. Less than a 10 minute walk to Ima's restaurant (great food!) Powerpoint hanging out of the wall. Walls really dirty. Shared bathroom could do with some TLC and an upgrade. We didn't really mind, but word of warning it was quite loud there- bars trying to outplay each other with music and the staff in the morning at 6 yelling in the hallways outside our door. We won't stay again. For value of money there are other places, such as Arnaldo's guesthouse that we found and stayed at the next time we were in Puerto. Great find.

                location is excellent (right next to bars and restaurants), flexible staff, nothing else

                The location is excellent, being across from the Tiki bar/restaurant and one other club. I felt that I paid too much for these rooms. One can get much better elsewhere if one doesn't care to take a jeepney or trike. When a friend wanted to stay over night on the other bed, the hotel tried to charge for extra people, despite the fact my reservation was for two.

                i enjoyed my stay over all. the place was clean enough, nice enough, and priced right. i could have done with a bigger bathroom, their bathroom was a quite small (which i noticed in most puerto hotels). the location was superb though!!!! i came to puerto for a business trip so it was nice for me to be able to walk to all the places that i needed to be. great places to dine and buy stuff. the staff were really nice and accommodating. all transportation passed by the hotel so it was easy for me to catch a ride going anywhere i wished. i cannot say enough good things about the location. despite being in the city center it was rather tucked away because it was in a cul-de-sac. if you are looking for value for money i'd say this is a good place to go.

                My mom and my son had a great time staying in this hotel. Staffs are very accommodating and willing to assist your every needs and requests. Delivery is allowed and they even assists delivery guy to find our room. They also informed you when your tour provider already confirmed time of pick up. They also allow us to check out as late as 1:00 PM without additional charge. Hotel furniture can be improved, like bigger dining table which we used when they deliver the breakfast every morning. Might be good as well to change the flat sheet to a thicker one or comforter perhaps. Easy to find and just minutes away via tricycle ride from airport. Fast food restaurants including Jollibee, Chowking, Shakeys and Greenwich is just walking distance from hotel and a convenience store is also available just steps away from hotel. Besides the Karaoke establishment nearby which is noisy at nights but bearable (for us), the hotel which is entirely for the use of rest and comfortable sleep at night, all in all its exactly what we need.

                It's my 3rd visit in Puerto Princesa City and in each visit I have different stories to tell. This time, I stayed in a low-budgeted hotel. But the comfort in sleeping was the same as the other two hotels I stayed before. Only this time, the hotel I stayed for 3 days is very much accessible to restaurants/coffee bars/diners/fastfoods, mall and banks, a few steps away literally. The staff are very friendly/accommodating (though of course, this is what business needed most). If In the near future and wish to come back for the 4th time, surely I will choose to stay in this hotel again.

Highly recommended as decent budget traveller hotel.

                the stay was great. even if the hotel is on the busy rizal street, it feels quiet in the rooms. there is tv with lots of channels, enough space for luggage, comfortable beds, very well working air-condition. if you book standard room, you get breakfast included and you have your own bathroom. they also have budget rooms without private bathroom and without breakfast, but the shared bathroom gets celeaned all the time during the day, so this option is ok too. the hotel is like 7 mins drive from the airport, there is a convenience store next door, nightlife, great restaurants. the hotel seems to be new. the only thing which was bad was slow internet.

                We booked our room the night before and checked in without hassle. Alta City is pretty much how it describes itself. It's not the kind of place you will stay at for days because it is beautiful and charming. You will stay here because you need a room for a night or two and appreciates the convenience and basic comforts. The room and attached bathroom was clean and surprisingly spacious. Staff was very helpful with directions and places to go.

                good location, and average breakfast!

                we chose this hotel because it was close to the airport. the location is ok, near the city centre, with lots of restaurants and shops around it! the room is not bad, it is enough for a noght in the town! i t is clean with hot water and breakfast.

                very accessible, very clean

                - very polite and helpful staff - the place is new and very clean - hotel owner very helpful making our tour bookings convenient and fast; they also introduced us to "must try" fine dining places in the city - the hotel is very accessible: walking distance to convenience store, banks, souvenir shops, dining places, etc. - hotel provides free "bottomless" mineral water - breakfast may be improved by adding more choices or variations
