Aside from being an affordable pension house/hotel, Lola Itang also has a restaurant which is open daily from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM except on Sundays.  The restaurant is less fancy but very clean and decent.

The pension house area is very quiet and pleasantly comfortable and cozy.  Unlike typical hotels or pension houses, Lola Itang’s unique atmosphere which I should say very “Filipiniana” makes it a must stay hotel in Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan.

Lola Itang Hotel
Although the rooms we stayed in are a bit modern and deviate from the “Filipiniana” feel of the hotel, we were very satisfied for the cleanliness of the room and its toilet & bath.

Lola Itang’s staff  are very friendly and accommodating.  During our 5 day stay at the pension, we experienced superb customer service – from the security guard, room cleaners, restaurant servers to front desk officers.  Less fancy rooms but are reasonable for the price, very secured and homey. A must stay for budget travelers.
