Puerto Princesa is a hot, dusty town, but the Canvas hotel is a little oasis amid it all.
I loved the decor in the rooms - kind of eighties, industrial, minimalist. The rooms have a lovely airy feel, with a huge dressing area and big shower (rain shower) and toilet. Soap and shampoo are provided in big, environmentally friend dispensers. Rooms have safe boxes and the wifi was good and strong (although there was a brief period when the service went down, but that was the provider's fault not the hotel's).
The restaurant food was tasty and reasonably priced and the pool is lovely. I particularly appreciated the free airport pickup and drop off (the hotel is literally 3 minutes from the airport but it is a busy road to cross). There is a souvenir market directly opposite the hotel if that's your thing.
I noticed someone saying that it's 'not as nice as the pictures' but I disagree, I stayed twice in two different rooms and they were every bit as nice as the pictures, in fact nicer as you don't get a sense of how big the rooms are from the images.More
