Our stay in Puerto Princesa was made more memorable by Hotel Centro, a classy and high-end accommodation in the city. 

Our van arrived at Puerto Princesa from El Nido at around 12midnight. The hotel staff was warm to welcome us & quick in giving us our room and bring our bags to our room.

Why Stay at Hotel Centro?

Located at the heart of Puerto Princesa- Hotel Centro, a top-notch Hotel is perfect for travellers, businessmen, local and visitors of Puerto Princesa. Its location is just perfect - from the name itself - Centro - where all the business districts are located. You can just take a walk or ride a tricycle to Robinsons Mall Palawan ( which is just a 5-minute walk).

In terms of service, their customers are truly well taken cared off. We also received Welcome drinks and the hotel staff made us feel comfortable, and I was just not their guest but a new found friend. 

We really appreciate our room which is a deluxe triple sharing. The queen-size bed had more than enough space for two persons and was really needed for our deserving goodnight's rest and comfortable sleep. Even the single bed had more than enough space also for another person. 
Hotel Centro Deluxe Room Amenities

Our room are equipped with all the things we needed for our stay: 

  • Cable television 
  • Air-Conditioning 
  • Telephone 
  • Mini-Bar 
  • Tea and Coffee 
  • Complimentary Water 
  • Hair Dryer 
  • Safety and Security deposit box 
  • Private T&B w/ hot & cold water. 
  • I so loved the Pure Herbs organic bath essentials

Breakfast at Expressions Cafe 

The accommodation includes free buffet breakfast. We had an early meal at Expressions Cafe since the van rode us to the Underground River at 7am. The breakfast buffet had an array of nostalgic dishes and does put a sweet start to our day of adventure. Not to mention, Expressions Cafe also looked impressive. It has a special view of its swimming pool garden.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay at Hotel Centro. We had a very short stay at Hotel Centro but definitely we are planning to go back to Puerto Princesa since we missed the City Tour. 

Here's a Quick Tour of the Hotel.

wow! before I proceed with your post topic sissy, I just wanna ask if it was you the model of photojeepney on their promo at ensogo? The cartoonized photo. Seems like it's you :).I just noticed the picture background. Anyway the review you posted about hotel centro is a big help since my friend of mine in Dubai is asking for a place to stay there this December. I'll surely recommend your post about a great place to stay at Puerto Princesa.

Wow! wish to win so my parents would able to enjoy that kind of luxury.

Very elegant and relaxing hotel, hope to come and stay on that hotel the next time we will visit philippines. thank you for the information, i'm glad you have stated this kind of review to give me head up in the future.

Luxurious and beautiful~! Thanks for sharing the sweepstakes/giveaway info.

The hotel looks clean. I bet a lot of foreigners stay there.

I don'y know if I will ever have the chance to visit Puerto Princesa but if I do I hope to try this place.

Thanks for the lovely review. It looks like a 5-star hotel with quality service. I dream to visit Palawan one day and this hotel is gonna be included to be shortlisted :-)

Sarap sigurong mag overnight dyan. How much naman kaya ang rate nila.

Galin na ako rito.. Sige, parang may nagsasabi na if ever na I visit Palawan, here in this fine hotel ako mag-check in.

The hotel, from the outside, doesn't look like it's in Philippines! World-class! I haven't been to Palawan yet. Thanks for sharing these snaps with us! :)

I checked their facebook oage for the giveaway, ate! Chamee won some GCs for Hotel Centro :)

Wow, that hotel look so pristine. I would love to stay in that place next year when we visit Puerto Princesa.

What a beautiful to stay during a stay in Puerto Princessa Sis :-) I will keep these reviews in mind. I hope to explore Puerto Princessa one day with my family :)

The hotel is great! One can have a relaxing moment. Thanks for touring us :)

Nice review sis. I have a friend who asked me before about a nice place to stay in Puerto Prinsesa, since I don't have anything to refer I just told her to search on the web for great places there. And because of this review, I have the idea now.

Wow, looks like a great place to stay...thanks for sharing information about this place. I hope our family can visit Palawan someday.
