          Hassle free and stress free”

          Good location, very accomodating and well maintained room

          I would definitely recommend staying in Hotel Palwa. Its location is just a walking distance away from the tourist spots such as the Dumaguete Cathedral, Rizal blvd and Sans Rival. Wifi connection is also strong. Also I do not have a Dumaguete street map with me. I also dont have a steady internet connection that is needed for google maps. It was therefore a relief when i saw that one type of leaflet (provided for free) in the hotel lobby provides a detailed map. Going to the the tourist spots was therefore easier.

          Palwa Hotel September 2014”

          Food quality, cleaniness, and friendly staff.

          Palwa Hotel is a very nice place to stay, and I would go back again. Excellent food quality, but the attentiveness of the waitresses required continous light nudges for service--even during slow periods. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The facilities are clean, well located to the market, and Cathedral. Several blocks away were the boulevard and the University of Silliman. Dumaguete has a very new, modern, and large mall/shopping center worth visiting, but catch a tricycle at the market for P20 each. The mall has a very nice Robinson's grocery store to stock up on provisions, but be advised that the Palwa rooms do not have refrigeration. I rate Palwa Hotel as "excellent" using Filipino standards for comparables in Dumeguete.

          Near city center & good service”

          Hotel Palwa is in the city center of Dumaguete. You can ride a tricycle for P8 to go around the city. Service wise, I could highly recommend it to my friends. The condition of the hotel is on the average side. The only thing that really bothered me in my 3 days stay was the hard & stiff bed and pillows. (Besides the point that you still have to pay an additional P30 or so for another stone rock pillow. Plus another payment for the extra blanket????) I would also suggest that they should have a refrigerator and electronic kettle instead of having to call the front desk for hot or cold water. Anyhow, my stay was convenient. Keep up the good service.

          somethimes, CHEAP is BETTER”

          Fast WiFI, Clean rooms, Location

          It was a good stay. With the price I got from Agoda, Php 1,998 for 2 nights (with taxes, breakfast not included) I was not expecting a good hotel. I kept on telling my friend, not to expect too much and that were just staying there just to sleep and shower. But we are so wrong when we got there. They have a cozy lobby, welcoming staff and good-clean rooms. I' am also adding they have good internet connection (really fast), that we did update our social media after the tiring day. Location wise, it was good too. They are in the center of almost everything. You can walk from the hotel to the Boulevard, restaurants, shops/malls, churches and many more. If you're not fond of walking you can always ride the city's public transportation. and since the hotel's location is good, you can always ride easily, no time for waiting. Breakfast, we only tried their restaurant for their breakfasts. With the rate I got, breakfast being not included was okay. They do serve breakfast prices starting from Php 98. Overall, I say I can recommend Hotel Palwa to friends and family, honestly just last night I was asked by a friend about this hotel. So hopefully, other readers will appreciate this review too. Have a great vacation to everyone!

          I was expecting a smaller room because of the price I paid here in Agoda so I was surprised to see a bigger room instead. Staff is really helpful in giving us info in where to go and where to eat. Room service is fast. They provide free hot water upon request. T&B is well maintained and clean. Hot water is working. Surprise that even if it is situated in a busy road, it wouldn't disrupt your sleep. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Dumaguete.

This means it is easy to go out to shop, take things back to the hotel, go out to eat, go back to the hotel to freshen up, go out for the evening and get home safely later. During all my comings and goings the staff were around and smiling, giving an extra sense of security and relaxation.

          Just for a night”

          We were in a business travel supposedly just for a day and we ended up in this hotel which is located in the heart of Dumaguete City. It is clean. You can order food for the room or you can have it in their little restaurant on the ground. Nice stay.

          Nice place with friendly staff”

          We enjoyed our stay here as the girls at the front desk and the maids are friendly and accommodating. It is located in a good area of Dumaguete near food and a mall and not far from the ocean boulevard
