We stayed at double bed room, the room was clean, toilet working, no noisy air condition. A nice place to relax after a busy day.They also have a function room for small gathering... More

My husband and I stayed at La Charica Inn for a wk, I dont usually complain and knew this was no 4 star hotel when I booked it and did not have high expectations. First day the power went out and everytime the generator kicked in there was a loud sound coming from the circuit panel. Second day there was... More

From experience I wont recomment this hotel to anyone. Started with the bed without bedsheets, shower knobs keep droping out, dirty grout and no complimentary water. We stayed there last night but oh what a night. Sleep was punctuated by the very noisy airconditioner. It kick starts itself within a few minutes so everytime you get a wink here we... More

We stayed at the 12-bed dormitory room, which is in a bungalow beside the main building, and is close to the cafeteria. It is made of very thick concrete and the door is of very thick wood, with a very secure lock so we felt very secure inside, in spite of the gate, which was a joke. The room could... More

Chances are that you're in Puerto Princesa as a launching pad to other places in Palawan, but Puerto has its charm and is worth spending a day or two. We wanted to take a break from flying and traveling and decided to stay in Puerto for a few days before heading to El Nido. La Charica Inn was what we... More

A 3-floor hotel located at the quiet Abad Santos Street, but near the center of the city, which is a few minutes taxicle (tricycle) ride to the chain of restaurants along Rizal Avenue and San Miguel Tiangge (souvenir shops) and just near the airport. It's very accessible since there are taxicles passing by the hotel. The ambiance is fairly fine,... More

We didn't choose the hotel but our travel agency did. Although I couldn't compare them to a full service deluxe hotel, but their staffs really provided an outstanding level of service. Except for the breakfast, which is the only downside of this hotel. They must replace their bf menu or else, guest must eat outside instead of availing it. Rooms... More
