Puerto Princesa, Palawan: Ysabelle Mansion - Hotel Review

Having a good accommodation when traveling somewhere is an important consideration for me. Well not in the level of luxury hotels and high-end resorts, just a comfy place to stay with complete basic amenities, clean toilet, and of course soft beds and pillows, I'm satisfied.

Thanks to the help of the travel site Trip Advisor for giving me ample options with matching positive and negative reviews of each and every hotel located in Puerto Princesa. The accommodation that caught my attention was Ysabelle Mansion because of its satisfactory online ratings and reasonable room rates.

TRAVEL TIP: Search some resources online when planning for your trip and hotel accommodation. Online travel sites can provide you with the necessary insights and comments that you may find useful. Pictures from other travelers are also being uploaded for you to know what the actual place really looks like.

Ysabelle Mansion is located just near Puerto Princesa Airport, actually only around 5 to 10-minute ride by van or tricycle. The good thing with Ysabelle Mansion is that they have a free airport van transfers so commuting to and from the hotel is not a concern. Their airport van is well air-conditioned, spacious and comfortable, and can accommodate up to 12 passengers.

TRAVEL TIP: Kindly contact Ysabelle Mansion days prior your flight and let them know of your airline schedule so they can fetch you at the airport on time. The hotel driver will hold a placard with your name on it! :)

We booked a Family Room good for 6 persons for our 4 Days - 3 Nights stay in Puerto Princesa. You may directly check their website for the updated room rates and tour packages prices:

And now for my feedback and verdict regarding my experience in this hotel, below are my pros and cons and it's up for you if will agree with me or not.

  • Stable Wi-Fi connection
  • Friendly and welcoming staff
  • Quiet and safe hotel surroundings
  • Just near the airport and has airport van transfers
  • The room's well-lit, clean and has comfortable beds

  • Filipino breakfast is just average
  • Far from the city center and other restaurants
  • Toilet is a bit smaller and the water pressure is weak
  • No landline phone inside the room to call the staff and receptionist

If you ask me if I will recommend this hotel to other travelers, definitely a YES! If given the chance again to set foot in Puerto Princesa, I won't have second thoughts booking a night here.
