    We were allowed tocheck in early as sson as the room was available. Place is clean and beautiful. Wayer flow was string abd they had heater. Aur conditiioning is excellent though for a while we struggled on how to set the thermostat. The staff were very helpful and would cater to our needs as soon as we ask them. We ordered breakfasts for the 2 days we had to go early for our underground river tour and honda bay. Theyserved itearly acc to our schedule tour puck up time. They also arranged our early 5:30am airport transpirt. Normally the airport transfer costs 300php but bec of early pick up time of 5:30 amfor our group of 8. .wifi is ok in the family room we were assigned in the first floor but wifi was weak in the second floor room. I will drginitely come back to stay in balay tuko. Thank you being part of our beautiful memories

    Rooms very comfortable and whole premises kept spotlessly clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food always freshly cooked/prepared. Beautiful garden setting away from main busy town area. Location was only short trike taxi ride from centre and 15mins from airport. Indoor swimming pool a real bonus. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

    Not So but ok”
    Stayed for 3 days and 2 nights with my japanese bf. The room is Good and clean. The garden is great if you wanted to stay in more like a province like, i can recommend you the place.. but the people and staff? it seems they are nice only to foreigner . They don't smile and not approachable. The food is also a bit too too pricey. The place is a little too far from the city center. if you are planning to eat at Kalui , badjao sea front and go to baywalk it will take you for 15 to 20 min travel by tricycle and cost more.

    Thank you for your review. When booking for an hotel you should check first on googlemaps & select it according to your plan for going out for restaurants. Like that you do not need to take a public transport & write about it.

    The Best Accommodation I ever stayed in!”
    This review comes from my heart. My partner and I enjoyed our short stay in Puerto Princesa. The owner is very kind that she let us extend our stay for FREE to buy time for our flight back to Manila. The staff were very accommodating. The location is 10 minutes away from the Airport and Pasalubong Center. It is also nearby Robinsons Place Palawan. We definitely recommend this accommodation for travelers out there! Must try!
    Reviewed October 05, 2018
    Thank you for your opinion Indeed, Balay Tuko is only 10 minutes from the new airport and we can avoid the national highway if necessary because of heavy traffic. Robinson's Place and San Jose Bus Station are within walking distance. We hope that if you are in Puerto Princesa in the future, you will consider Balay Tuko as a lodging choice for your friends and family. BTGI

    Thank you for taking the time to review our B&B. Staying 1 night is such a short time to judge our place. Our location is displayed on Google map and in Agoda website so you should pay a better attention when booking an hotel so like that you do not have to give a bad score. It is your mistake! Our location is the best for guests doing all the day tours & see all the wonderful things to see and do around Puerto Princesa. At least you liked your room and our facilities!

    excellent choice”
    We've stayed for one night. Have arrived very early, so we got the option to leave our luggage and wonder around in Puerto Princesa. It's located 5km from the airport and not in the heart of the city which isn't much of a downside. Free drinking water all day long. The room is nice and spacious, looks new and the property is nicely built and very inviting. Sitting area on the grounds and outside the room. We've booked the trip to the subterranean river through the hotel. You can find it cheaper online. No kettle in the room. A con for myself, since I love my coffee more than once a day. Bring mosquito repellant!!!
    Reviewed March 10, 2018
    Thank you for your lovely review and we are pleased that you all enjoyed your stay. The price for the Day tours for local Tour operators are given by the City Tourism office. For sure, you can find cheaper on line but by experience with our guests some of them were very disapointed at the end because the Tour operator was not even from here or they did not show up at all after getting the money. We are working exclusively with 2 local tour operators that are giving the best service & are reliable. For the Coffee: we keep always a thermos of brewed coffee or Instant Coffee at the Resto Bar. We are a simple B&B and kettle in the room is not required by the standart of Department of Tourism: it is for Hotel Category. Moreover it is a fire hazard & also we try to avoid people to bring food (like instant noodles...) in the room and attract the cockroaches. About the Mosquitoes: yes Palawan is a tropical island so you cannot avoid them. We look forward to seeing you all back again soon.

    EXCELLENT SPOT TO CHILL”
    While a bit north of [whatever is] the action of downtown Puerto Princesa, this new property [2012] is a bargain and an oasis. There are nice grounds. The French owner has the cutest little dog. Staff is typically Filipino polite. The menu scope may be a tad limited but what is on offer is delicious. Try the lomayo fish [item B6] for brekkie! There is a huge swimming pool, table tennis, billiards and a grand area out front to read a book. This was a lucky find.

    Very relaxing place to stay in and people are really nice and kind in helping us with our needs.”
    The owner is commendable and really kind for letting us check in early and have late check out since our flight is at 7pm and not overcharging us. Also the staffs are really helpful and nice with our needs. We have small problem regarding the place since it is not close to the city. But with the relaxing and peaceful ambience of the place you would just want to stay in the hotel. I would recommend this place to friends and people who are looking for peace and relaxation during their stay.
