So during my recent two-day, all expense paid trip to Puerto Princesa, Palawan to speak about social media, blogging and citizen journalism, (much thanks to the US Embassy Manila) I stayed at The Legend Hotel. I must admit from the get-go, however, that I wasn’t able to explore this Palawan hotel that much since we arrived pretty darn late in the evening on the first day and we also had to leave early the next day to go to Brooke’s Point, Palawan. And on our second day at The Legend Palawan, the same thing happened – we again arrived in the evening then had to leave early the next morning. C’est la vie.
So please just allow me to share a few photos I took of my The Legend Palawan Hotel room. I stayed in an airconditioned standard suite. It had two beds – one queen sized bed and a single bed. There’s flat screen TV with cable (just a few channels, though), a mini bar, cabinets near the door, a table and chair where you can work if you want to and there’s free wireless Internet. Ask for the username and password from the front desk The bathroom’s okay – clean, had a few toiletries (incomplete, though) and a huge rainshower head. There were no slippers in the room so bring a pair.
The beds were comfortable enough. I did tell the front desk, however, that they needed to change their bed sheets. They felt too rough for me.
There were only a few power sockets. Only two, if I’m not mistaken. Which sucks especially if you brought a laptop along and have to charge several gadgets as well.
There’s provision for coffee (no tea, unfortunately).
Breakfast at Tanglaw Restaurant (located at the hotel lobby) the next day was complimentary. You only have two choices – continental or Filipino. That’s it. The Filipino set meal was all right – I was given rice, danggit, dilis and longganisa. There are egg and bread stations, too.
Two great things I can say about The Legend Palawan Hotel, though, are the good location (it’s located along Malvar Road, one of the busy streets in Puerto Princesa) and the polite and helpful staff. From the driver of the hotel shuttle that fetched us from the Puerto Princesa Airport to the guys at the front desk to the chef who cooked my omelette just the way I liked it to the doorman – all the employees at Legend Hotel Palawan made my stay easy and comfortable. And to me, that makes a lot of difference.
