Casa Linda Inn - Puerto Princesa City

Casa Linda Inn

Casa Linda Inn: Country-style dwelling in the city

The inn's structure is so reminiscent of native houses in the countryside - one level but elevated from the ground. The roof is made from nipa, the walls from sawali, the floor from wide wooden planks, and the frame from bamboo. However the bathrooms are modern despite the absence of hot water. A well tended inner garden has a gazebo at the center where guests can converge, read or simply relax.

The inn has 11 rooms with a choice between aircon and fan. They also have a stock room where you can leave your things and an ensuite bathroom where you can freshen up in case you arrive prior to check in time of 12nn.

The staff are very accommodating and friendly. They could arrange your transport and day trips at no additional cost. And being locals, they share valuable tips - must see, must eat, must avoid, etc.

Unique Qualities: A unique practice (which I failed to abide by) is the taking off of footwear when entering the inn. I wasn't aware of it until another guest called my attention. Well, it is not strictly implemented (nor followed), but it was a new experience for me.

Address: Trinidad Road (off Rizal Avenue)

Comparison: least expensive

Directions: Less than 5 minutes from the airport. Toward the direction of the city proper, enter a small alley to your left when you reach Badjao Inn. It is immediately at the back of it.
