The independent city of Puerto Princesa has developed quite well to cater to the booming tourist magnet that is Palawan. After a number of international publications have thrown high praises to the island’s many stunning natural wonders, Palawan has gotten a steady growth of tourist coming in. Major hotels now stand to cater to different segments. And one easy access just coming out of the Puerto Princesa International Airport is Fersal Hotel Puerto Princesa branch. It’s so close I just walked to the exit with my baggage and crossed the street to get there. How convenient.

We Mean Business

Fersal Hotel Puerto Princesa is one of its many chain branches in the country. One common key aspect from all their hotels is their location which is conveniently located to business districts and establishments. Fersal Hotel Puerto Princesa is no different. It’s just outside the airport along Rizal Avenue extension, the most happening area in the city with most of the businesses and popular eating establishments are found.

The hotel is a five-story building. The hotel restaurant, Inn Cafe is at the ground floor along with offices for a travel agent and a small spa. I really like the native decorations at their lobby. Second floor has a conference room, a small patio, and a basic gym. The main rooms are at the third floor up. I like that there’s a secured door at the second floor stairway leading to the third floor that only room key holders can access. The common area each floor also has a hot water dispenser which is a nice touch. I could also see a lot of routers strategically placed within the building to enable WiFi access to most areas of the hotel. I did find their WiFi reliably fast which is a must to any hotels leaned towards business travelers.

Inn Cafe

The Inn Cafe is the hotel restaurant. They have good local and international offerings throughout the day. I ordered grilled tuna and fries for lunch and it was good. Buffet breakfast is also in this area. Breakfast has decent offering. I like that they have their local danggit (salted and dried rabbitfish) served that days I stayed.
