Traveling can be expensive. If you’ve been saving up for a vacation for a while, you probably want your money to go as far as possible so you can experience everything you want and make the most of your trip. 

The city of Puerto Princesa is the capital of Palawan dubbed as one of the World’s Most Beautiful Islands by numerous popular travel and news magazines. The city has also been named the “cleanest and greenest city” and has also been recognized globally for its environmental excellence.

Puerto Princesa is famous for its beautiful natural attractions like the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park which was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and as a gateway to Palawan Island, particularly to popular destinations like El Nido and lesser-known destinations including San Vicente and Balabac. 

We recently visited Puerto Princesa in Palawan for the Palawan Baragatan Festival 2022 and during which we stayed at Go Hotels Puerto Princesa. The hotel offers affordable accommodation without compromising the quality of service and comfortable stay to their guests.

Our Room

We stayed at the hotel’s standard queen room and the room was nice and decent enough for a comfortable stay. Which is not bad since for most of us when we travel we rarely stay in our room especially when you are on a budget staying at a budget-friendly accommodation is highly recommended. The room also features an in-room safe to secure your valuables while you are out exploring. It also has a queen-sized bed with 100% cotton sheets with duvet covers. The toilet and bath are clean. Toiletries such as shampoo, soap, and Toilet Paper are also provided. The bath towels are soft and smell fresh!
