Victoria Guest House and Cottages offers some of the most affordable and budget friendly accommodation when in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Very near the old Puerto Princesa Airport, it is just 10 minutes travel away. It is also near the down town area of Puerto Princesa. Though it’s not near in any convenience store or merchandise shops, there are sari-sari stores around the corner. And it is very accessible to the main road so fetching a tricycle to your destination is not hard to do.

And they also offer, tour packages around Puerto Princesa including a tour of Puerto Princesa Underground River in Sabang. During our stay, we availed the latter and the following tour packages – City tour of Puerto Princesa, Iwahig River and Firefly Night tour and Honda Bay island hopping. All packages are inclusive of meals, guide and to and from the sight transportation. Charging is per person rate. Their rate is standardized just like the rest of tour operators and hotel that offers the same tour packages of Puerto Princesa.
We have free breakfast in our entire duration in Victoria Guest House and Cottages. All of our meals are satisfying plus what I like added bonus for our tour packages with meals prepared by the hotel was “free dessert” in our lunch and dinner meals and breakfast as well if I remember. We always had “sweetened saging na saba” as our dessert to which I do not complain at all since this type of banana is one of my favorite Filipino dessert.
Regarding to the staffs, they are generally friendly and warm as well as the tour guides provided to us during our tours in Puerto Princesa who does this job as a sideline amidst they are still at school. What I also like in this hotel is that they answer immediately to queries and transactions via their Facebook Messenger. One staff, Ms. Michelle whom I transacted prior and during our trip to Puerto Princesa was very accommodating. She even helped me secure a slot for Underground River Tour for our group in the city office because of our late reservation for the tour we had to do a standby. Advance reservation is required for tours to Puerto Princesa Underground River especially during peak season like summer which was our travel date and the city office limits only the visitors to the underground river for like 200 to 500 visitors only per day to preserve its environment. But with the help and skills of Ms. Michelle we were able to get a slot for the underground river tour amidst the peak season of summer! Kudos to that! But the rest of the staffs even their drivers and cooks, all of them are warm, friendly and smiling all the time to the guests.
