Reviewed 23 February 2013

The first time we stay this pension house.I was so impress because it's cheap but very clean.My husband together with our friends staying last December 2011.Before that,we stay last 2010.They are all very friendly to the customers.We are only walking going to market but you can also ride the tricycle.They are honest people and very quiet in this place.a 5 minutes walk going to the baywalk.
We love travelled all over the world and also my home Philippines.I will highly recommend this pension house.You will enjoy your stay.
We will come again next year,we plan this time.Coron and Puerto Princesa.

Lola Itang's pension house is a very cool and nice place to stay in Puerto Princesa Palawan. It's near the city and very accessible to any tourist spot in Puerto Princesa. At first, I thought that the location is very small but as we entered the pension house, I was really amaze that it has a wide location and very plenty of rooms. The pension house is clean and the staff were accommodating. So happy to recommend staying here. Their room rates are reasonable price. We stayed for 3 days two nights last May 11-13, 2012. The next time we go back at Puerto Princesa, we might stayed their again.

We stayed at Lola Itang's during the time typhoon Ondoy was raging in Metro Manila. I secured a room for three people. When we were led to our rooms, I was happy with it as it had plenty of rooms despite the fact that there were two beds: a matrimonial and a single bed. I was also happy with the price: 1,900 for 2 nights stay.

Lola Itang's is located at the city center. It is walking distance to the church, eating places, to the baywalk, even to the mall. Despite being at the city center, it is also quiet and not crowded. It felt homey and was clean, and the staff were friendly. Meg, the manager, was very accommodating to our queries.

If there was something I would gripe on during our stay, it was that there was no free breakfast, though you could get a delicious meal at their restaurant.

Although it did not look much from the outside, they really made up with it when you go in. Food was ok, the place was nice and it was homey and not the usual modern type of hostel that you see popping everywhere.

They are quite old in the sense that there are many new commers offering bed and breakfast.

Conveniently located. A trike away from everything.

Reviewed 15 January 2012

Last 2009 My cousin and I had the chance to visit Puerto Princesa City.We stayed at Lola Itang's pension which at that time still resembled the usual pension house feel, that's old and not modern.But,still holds one of the best location since it's the center of the city proper.
At the latest this January, I am able to travel with my family and still booked at Lola Itang's because I am at home and safe.Surely,My family would love the place because it's vacation and I want them to feel a homey experience.
To my surprise when we arrived last January 6,I was impressed by the welcome drinks!hahaha...which we didn't have before..They also have a new annexed 4 rooms building which according to Miss Meggy, the owner and manager,will have the future suites..
I am happy that, with Puerto Princesa's rise to developments,Lola Itang's has improved and made sure they will be able to cater more tourists into their place still with a homey touch .
Our room which we stayed was impressive!very colorful and my children loved it very much!Before , the rooms were comfortable but boring,now it was really in modern style especially the choice of the colors for the bed sheets and curtains
I thank our friend,Miss Meggy for the warm and comfortable stay .Thanks also for assisting us for the reservations for the KALUI dinner..Another thing, the Pension house is just walking distance to Plaza Cuartel,Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral and Baywalk...If by chance you really want to walk further, it's 10 to 15 minutes walk to the market
Til my next visit to Puerto! Thanks for another wonderful and relaxed vacation!

Lola Itang's location is FANTASTIC! The staff are great! The rooms are clean (they clean it everyday and change the towels too). It's central but quiet. You can walk to the cathedral, market and bay side. There is a 24 hr convenience store nearby. The restaurant is a bit expensive considering the serving. For breakfast, your stuck with them since tours usually start early. For lunch and dinner, just take a tricycle to the nearby restaurants. I recommend La Lui, Cafe Nori, Balinsasayaw and Kinabuch.

NEVER book your tours thru Lola Itangs. They have a tieup with TOPSTAR. Though the people in Lola itangs are friendly, they will not recommend whats best. They will ask you to pay for the tours as soon as you check in so you cant back out because they know you most probably will. If you book your tours thru them you would have to adjust to the other people in the tour and the staff will not tell you. So if one of them has a flight back to Manila that day or if one of them just fells like going home, your tour will be cut short. Like in our case, the tour (underground and honda bay) was cut 3 hours short for 2 consecutive days. Same travel agency (TOPSTAR), same touguide (SHARON). Just book your own van (underground river and honda bay) or tricycle (city tour and iwahig firefly), there are a lot of them (vans) at the airport. It's CHEAPER and you WILL be able to visit more attractions.
Just make sure that the van is accredited.

Lola Itangs is Fantastic! TOPSTAR SUCKS!

Good day,

We would like to apologize for the inconvenience the tour may have caused you ( the guest from another inn failed to advised topstar that they have a flight in the afternoont so they were all caught unaware) ,however, regarding the comment about us not recommending the best is unfair. We do refund the tours for underground river and honda bay if the guest advise us early. Regarding this matter, we also called topstar's attention and they likewise aplogized for what happened and promised to look into the matter. We usually book our tours through topstar because we find them efficient (they also have a lot of vans in case something goes wrong and there is a need to rescue or trouble shoot ) Topstar has been coordinating with us for five years now and our guests have no problem with them till this incident. We usually recommend package tours for first time travelers because it is convenient and comfortable for them but if they have a plane to catch or on a tight budget, we advise them to diy and we merely assist them on how, where and other details needed..
Regarding the full payment upon check-in, we always advise the guest beforehand about that (during reservation).
Again We do apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for the feedback. Rest assured we will take it into consideration

Thanks and best regards..
Meggy

we stayed for 3 nights. the room was reasonable for the price, i was not expecting that much anyway. the staffs are friendly and attentive. no telephone unit inside the room that's why we have to go out and get hot water on our own if we want to have coffee. there's a nearby convenience store that provided whatever we need. what's disappointing is that they did not allow us for a 1pm check-out! for the reason that someone is arriving at 2pm! what? from the look of the room, they don't spend 2 hours cleaning that! i texted meggie and i got the same answer. very, very disappointing, I wouldn't stay here again if not for the price.

Good day ma'am,

We do advise guests beforehand that our check-in time is 2 pm, our check-out time is 12 noon (universal check-in and out time). This is our POLICY and we are strict on that specially if another guest will be checking -in immediately after. That is also included in the house rules (listed inside the room). If we say that there will be guest checking in at 2 pm, it does not necessarily mean that the guest have not arrived yet,meaning, they might have already arrived and temporarily left their things in counter for the meantime while waiting for the room. Some of the guest also request no pick-up so the room has to be ready in case they arrive early or on time. Our apologies if it has caused you any inconvenience.
