          Value Motel for those who just need sleep”

          Located a little out of the way of the downtown action, Matutina is really the place to lay your head at night as little else. No pool, no views and not extravagant in room size or accommodations, you have to go to the main hall to access WiFi as well. It isn't THAT far from the city but a little ways to the airport and away from all the downtown tourist spots as well. The front staff are friendly and helpful but if you are an "in-a-rush" type person, you might find yourself frustrated. The WiFi is fast though and the breakfast food isn't bad. Be warned that they padlock the gate at night so hard partying and coming in early might require bell ringing and shouting to get someone to come open up for you.

          Location

          Stay at Matutina Pensionne was convenient to activities but unfortunately lacking in services. Had to request change after 2 days with same bath towels. Booked 3 tours with staff with last being a night outing returning about 9/10pm. Although management locks the entrance at 8pm each night, we had booked the night tour with them and coordinated our late return. We found the entrance locked upon our return with no response from posted telephone numbers. Only when our tour driver seeing our situation, repeatedly sounded his van horn did the maintenance man appear to unlock the entrance. Consequently no further tours were arranged with the staff. Palawan is a very nice island but we will choose a different place to stay on our next visit.

          This is a family inn that's been well run for years that has a quiet garden, a nice interior sitting area, and a staff that'll arrange tours, transportation, etc. The owner also is one of the Philippines' five craft beer makers, and probably the best of those five--so enjoy your stay!

          Lovely place, feels like a home stay, quiet and comfortable stay. The breakfast is included but pretty small so add some extras at $ if youneed to fill up in the morning. The staff was very responsive and friendly. It's close to the airport (about 10 min by tricycle taxi). You can wal to many restaurants or to the Baywalk where there's nice grilled seafood to be had after 4pm.

          A lot of common space; artistic touch of owner is evident; better than average staff

          It's a straight ten-minute trike ride from the airport (10 or 15 pesos). All except the single rooms are quite nice, set in a single building with a nice common area in the middle. The patio where breakfast is served (free) is pleasant all day. The single rooms are somewhat noisy, situated as they are between the congregation points of the office and the outside kitchen.

From check-in up to check-out, Ma'am Malu and her staff (Mayet and Apol) where all helpful and attentive to our needs. The room is big enough for our group and we love their large bathroom :D The room have all the basic things that we need. It made our stay in Puerto Princesa City enjoyable and comfortable.

          The place is clean and cozy. Perfect to those who wants to take break from city/ urban life. The location is also near at the bay-walk where you can have your dinner or try the bicycle riding. For the breakfast hope they can make those hot dogs and longganisa bigger :) :)

          The staff are accommodating, friendly and understanding. The location is good, it is near Plaza Cuartel and Immaculate Concepcion Church. The Pension itself has a good environment inside. It has a relaxing environment. The room we had was clean. My family and friends were very glad with our room. I highly recommend this pension. :)

          Value Motel for those who just need sleep”

          Located a little out of the way of the downtown action, Matutina is really the place to lay your head at night as little else. No pool, no views and not extravagant in room size or accommodations, you have to go to the main hall to access WiFi as well. It isn't THAT far from the city but a little ways to the airport and away from all the downtown tourist spots as well. The front staff are friendly and helpful but if you are an "in-a-rush" type person, you might find yourself frustrated. The WiFi is fast though and the breakfast food isn't bad. Be warned that they padlock the gate at night so hard partying and coming in early might require bell ringing and shouting to get someone to come open up for you.

          Location

          Stay at Matutina Pensionne was convenient to activities but unfortunately lacking in services. Had to request change after 2 days with same bath towels. Booked 3 tours with staff with last being a night outing returning about 9/10pm. Although management locks the entrance at 8pm each night, we had booked the night tour with them and coordinated our late return. We found the entrance locked upon our return with no response from posted telephone numbers. Only when our tour driver seeing our situation, repeatedly sounded his van horn did the maintenance man appear to unlock the entrance. Consequently no further tours were arranged with the staff. Palawan is a very nice island but we will choose a different place to stay on our next visit.

          This is a family inn that's been well run for years that has a quiet garden, a nice interior sitting area, and a staff that'll arrange tours, transportation, etc. The owner also is one of the Philippines' five craft beer makers, and probably the best of those five--so enjoy your stay!

          Lovely place, feels like a home stay, quiet and comfortable stay. The breakfast is included but pretty small so add some extras at $ if youneed to fill up in the morning. The staff was very responsive and friendly. It's close to the airport (about 10 min by tricycle taxi). You can wal to many restaurants or to the Baywalk where there's nice grilled seafood to be had after 4pm.

          A lot of common space; artistic touch of owner is evident; better than average staff

          It's a straight ten-minute trike ride from the airport (10 or 15 pesos). All except the single rooms are quite nice, set in a single building with a nice common area in the middle. The patio where breakfast is served (free) is pleasant all day. The single rooms are somewhat noisy, situated as they are between the congregation points of the office and the outside kitchen.

From check-in up to check-out, Ma'am Malu and her staff (Mayet and Apol) where all helpful and attentive to our needs. The room is big enough for our group and we love their large bathroom :D The room have all the basic things that we need. It made our stay in Puerto Princesa City enjoyable and comfortable.
