More than just a hotel: Citystate Asturias Hotel Palawan

3 August 2016 Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines

Puerto Princesa is not just about the Underground River, this place has more to offer, trust me. Destinations don’t come much more bucketlist-worthy than this, so if you’re planning a dream trip to Puerto Princesa and want to have an easy access to the city, you want to make sure you’re staying in a hotel that's more than just a hotel. Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce you to Citystate Asturias Hotel Palawan.


On our 3rd and 4th night in Puerto Princesa, we stayed at Citystate Asturias Hotel Palawan. The hotel is located along the South National Highway, giving guests easy access to Tiniguiban Heights and Puerto Princesa City, just a short drive from the airport and commercial district.

The hotel has a well-equipped conference room for organizing business meetings, function rooms for weddings, parties, and more. It also has its own gym complete with equipment and has its own video-oke and billiards room for a late night chill with friends.

They also offer tour arrangement to St. Paul Subterranean River National Park, Iwahig Penal Colony, and the Crocodile Farm and Nature Park.


We stayed in a deluxe room with 1 queen size bed and 2 extra beds. It's published rate is PhP 6,800 a night but you can avail it at a 50% discounted price of PhP 3,400 per night.

The room itself was not overly spacious but it was beautifully minimal. It is an air conditioned unit, equipped with complimentary drinking bottled water, flat screen television with cable channels, telephone, minibar fridge, built-in cabinet and an electronic door lock system.

The best part of the room was that there's a bath tub in the bathroom. Awesome! The bathroom was well stocked with toiletries and fluffy towels.


Oh I absolutely love the hotel's swimming pool. Our room was just beside the pool so every time we got nothing to do we always dip and have a swim at the pool for hours. Yes, a stay at City State Asturias Hotel is not complete without trying out the swimming pool.


When it comes to hotels, a good breakfast buffet is always on top of my list. The hotel has an on-site cafe, The Lobby Cafe, where guests can have light meals, breakfast, coffee variety and desserts. It is open from 6 AM until 12 midnight.

An expansive breakfast buffet, their cafe had it spot on. The breakfast buffet includes cereals, milk, team fruits, eggs, bacon, hot soup, and so much more, all of which are inclusive in the price of your stay.

For reservations, you may contact their Manila sales office at (632) 708 9624 and/or Palawan sales office at (63)(48) 434 3852 or email them at
