Where to Stay in Puerto Princesa: Audissie Pension

One of the things I like most about Puerto Princesa City is that you will never run out of places to stay for a night even if you are on a budget. There are hotels, pension houses or inns in almost all streets. There’s a place for everyone depending on their preferences and needs.

During our 4 day/3 night vacation in Palawan, we stayed at Audissie Pension along Malvar Street. There are many reasons why I went for this pension house over the others. One is the location. Audissie Pension is just walking distance away from Baywalk, Cathedral and Plaza Cuartel. We even walked from here up to Palawan Museum and Provincial Capitol. It is highly accessible too! Second reason is the price. For us who will be staying in the pension house only to sleep, take bath and to have a place where we can leave our belongings, booking with expensive hotels seems unreasonable. Besides, we are not high-maintenance people so this budget pension house is fine. Third, they offer free airport and hotel transfer.

For me it is also a great factor that the staff, particularly Kiko, is quick to reply to my email queries. His detailed information and friendly-approach is amazing. He even gives his opinion to what he think is best for you. Other staffs are equally friendly. One time, I forgot the key inside the room but nobody got mad at me. :D They comply with requests without smirking or any other unfriendly body gesture.

The room we got is the executive room which is air conditioned and with single matrimonial bed, bathroom and cable television. The room is good for two persons and costs Php 800 per night. The pension house has coffee shop and guests can order their breakfast a night before. We also enjoyed free wireless internet access.

The room we stayed in is not very new. In fact, some parts of the walls have minor stains but not to the point that will gross you out. While I have nothing against the pension house in general, the only thing I do not like about the room we stayed in is the bathroom. The water flowing near the toilet bowl and sink area is not going down the drain so after we shower, there is a pool forming there. That is the only thing that grossed me out.

Also, I would love it if the curtain is a bit thicker as opposed to the green one they got. In my opinion, it looks like curtains used in hospitals.

Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about the pension house and I would definitely choose this place again should I be back someday.
