    Above average”

    Very basic room and not very clean. The sheets were filthy and heavily stained, the bathroom was full of huge cockroaches and the room smelled of damp. The WiFi also did not work during our entire stay. Would be ok for a couple of nights due to cheap price, but wouldn’t recommend for any longer.

    A lovely stay here at Charm Guesthouse ”

    An excellent stay here after a long flight from India. The beds were comfy, room and bathroom clean. Good coffee available and the owners are able to book onward travel for you. They sorted a minivsn to port Barton for us and our trip to the underground river. A lovely stay we were made to feel very welcome. Laundry is available. We will be back here again.

    Clean and close to the airport”

    I traveled with my bf and my 2 siblings and we stayed at Charm Guest House around the end of June 2016, when it was very hot in the Philippines. We rented 2 rooms right next to each other. It is located a bit farther from the town center (5-15 minute tricycle ride) but very close to the airport in Puerto Princesa. It is also close (5-8 min tricycle) to NCCC mall. It is tucked in its own little street from the main street where local transportation drops you off but it's not bad at all. We were welcomed by two dogs and the owners of the place; they were all really nice! Our rooms were on the second floor accessed by an outdoor staircase. We had (1) double bed per room. The views from our windows were the neighbors so it was not too exciting but it wasn't an issue (we were out most of the time). The rooms, bathrooms, and the living room were very clean. (Only con that we found was a little bit of foul odor from the bathroom upon initially entering my siblings' room - but it was clean). The windows had wire screens to prevent mosquitoes from getting in (huge plus!) The water pressure from the shower was good and the toilet flush worked. There was no hot water (but it's not needed at this time of year). The rooms had electric fans but had A/C units which were locked and unplugged. They didn't serve breakfast but they have an outside "kitchen" with available hot water, plates, cups, and silverware, and a sink to wash it all. We prepared and ate breakfast there! I would like to add that the owners shared with us their breakfast that they prepared for their family guests. That was a really nice and sweet gesture. They have information on guided tours around Puerto Princesa/Palawan and van rides but we didn't take advantage of these services. We had other contacts for our tours/van. Overall, we liked Charm Guest House!

    It really is a charm!!”

    A nice place, simple dorm with single beds (not bunk beds), nice shower/toilet in the room which works fine and has proper black stone tiles. Everything works just fine. The best part of the whole place are the people there. Leah ist such a great host, and her whole family makes the traveller feel cozy and welcome in this small family run business. It was a true pleasure to stay there, I can only recommend to everyone to check this place out should you ever be in Puerto Princesa. I will be back next time I set foot into town :)

    Great budget option with wonderful staff”

    I stayed here for two nights and will be returning there in about 10 days before I leave Palawan. I do not normally write reviews, but I wanted to for this one. The manager and other staff were very friendly and welcoming. I came back from a day out and they all waved hello and smiled. The room was very clean and had everything I needed. It was hot and there was no AC, but there is a fan, so that helped. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who needs a budget option in Puerto Princesa. There are places to eat within a 10 minute walk. As I said, the manager in particular was a very genuinely warm person, and for me that made it one of the best places I have stayed in the Philippines.

    Очень хорошо и дёшево”

    Отельчик находится немного в стороне от главной улицы, идти минут пять-семь. Нам попалась просторная комната, что удивительно в Азии. Вай-фай отличный, хватает даже на то, чтобы посмотреть фильмы. Немного накосячили с прачечной: долго собирали, наложили в наши вещи чужого белья. Собаки по ночам облаивают всех, кто выходит во двор, где собственно находится курилка и питьевая вода. В остальном - прекрасное место
