This is a basic nonsense budget hotel that is in need of some TLC. The lady who manages the place is very nice. They offer free airport shuttle which is convenient. Both the rooms and breakfast are basic. The location is good and walking distance to most restaurants. This is a good option for a quick one night stay if... More

I stayed there one night to catch the next day flight. There was obviously yellow fluid on the toilet seat when I checked in the room the first time, and the shower head kept falling down, but it's not the end of the world. Everything else was fine. Staff was always friendly. Wifi is free and quite fast at the... More

The room was sparsely fitted. For a price of php2100 a night, i was expecting better accommodation. The bed sheets and towels were old and thin, aircon was not able to cool the entire room, bath & toilet were substandard. Since there is no partition between the shower and toilet, water from the shower will wet the entire bathroom. Sink... More

It is unbelievable what a person could resort to just because an unreasonable demand was not granted. What Rod said in his "review" IS ALL WRONG coming as it is from someone with an ax to grind against us. It all started when Rod and his family arrived at BALAI FELICISIMA at around 7 pm from El Nido for a... More

Stayed for a night. Bed is comfortable. Unexpected for it's price. They have hot shower. Which is a plus and they have free shuttle (van) to the airport. The receptionist is very accommodating and nice. I couldnt complain. Some corners need a little cleaning though, i already saw some cobwebs. Breakfast is okay too. I was told that breakfast includes... More
