I missed my flight home and was forced to spend an unplanned night in Koror, Palau. The dive shop arranged accommodations at the West Plaza for one night. The room was clean, though sparse. There is no free WiFi, though they sell WiFi cards at the front desk. There is no passenger elevator and luggage is transported four bags at...

Visitors to Palau typically go to dive, snorkel, or kayak all day, so an expensive hotel doesn't make much sense if all you really need is a hot shower, and air-conditioned room to sleep. This hotel is clean, quiet, and affordable by Palau standards, with friendly staff and on-site restaurant. The restaurant makes the back-street location away from town acceptable....

I stayed here twice. One night at the beginning of my trip and two nights at the end. I am just glad I stayed elsewhere in between! First room had a huge cockroach running around. Second stay, the room flooded with water after it rained. We were given another room. This one had termite stuff falling from the ceiling into...

This was my first night stop after a 36 hour trip from the UK. Met the bill - comfortable bed, big clean room and OK bathroom. Staff were very helpful and there was a special lift to transfer bags to the upper floors. This worked sometimes. Room was showing signs of ageing but everything worked. Mostly.

Pickup works well, 10$ per person, staff very friendly, no lift only one strange thing for luggage, rooms spacious and clean but with very stuffy aircondition. Extrabed rather small. Within walking distance to Koror main street for food and shopping. For a motel in the US you would only pay a quater of...

Almost everyone go to Palau for diving and watersports. This hotel provides a different hobby opportunity:ham radio. Stayed on 2 occasions for this purpose. Room is clean and a/c works perfect. The staff very friendly. Restaurant is quite nice with local fish and beer.

Rooms were clean and adequate. Air conditioner worked well .... too well in fact, couldn't get the temp. to above 21c without turning air con off .... better this way than no air con at all!

They also have a convienient laundry service that completes within the same day.The staff are very friendly and helped me to make alternative day tour arrangements...

Clean and served its purpose for a place to sleep for a few hours before the next departure. Not expensive and okay bed, clean linens and bathroom. Really old with doors opening to outside area. But had a cafe which was nice. If visit again would stay if needed a place to sleep for 4 hours.

Nice little hotel right on the water with great views of the sunrise and sunset. Its close enough to town that you can walk. There is a restaurant with the local red rooster beer on tap and huge pizzas. If you are going to palau you cant go wrong with the west plaza
