House of Big Brother Manalo Street: Puerto Princesa Hospitality at Reasonable Pricing

Since we visited Puerto Princesa during a season, we booked our stay at House of Big Brother in Manalo Street of Puerto Princesa City Proper through Agoda.  We arrived at Puerto Princesa Airport at around 9 pm.  As I was burning with fever and eager for rest, we took a tricycle ride from the tricycles lined up along the airport for a 50 php fee.

Coffee Lounge and Pool
Roughly 10-15 minutes later, we arrived at House of Big Brother which appears like a normal house.  We went in and presented our Agoda voucher to the receptionist. As soon as I signed the terms, I was handed the keys to the room and breakfast stubs.  As we noticed, all rooms are booked and occupied.  

There is a water dispenser by the dinning and pool area.  We chose this place for the pool but the pool was closed during our entire stay.  It was also kiddie-sized and so not worth the 300 php pool fee per hour.

INNER ROOM w/ 1 BED (Bed size: 48" x 72")

Our room was limited in space but very clean from the bedding to the floor corners.

Our clean towels are prepared.  We also had paper napkins but no toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, shampoo and soap.  There is a fridge but it was not working.

There is also a non-functioning microwave oven and safety deposit box.  We think there's an extra fee to utilize these appliances.

We checked the Guest Manual to see our entitlements.

To our surprise, the pool is only 3-4 feet hence, we did not pursue our initial plan of using it.  We bought our lacking supplies at the receptionist.

There is a Cable TV too.  But, it was difficult to watch with my poor eyesight at such height and size.

As we raised the curtains, we found a fire exit and a hanging area with hangers too. Perhaps, this is also the outlet for the mosquitoes which we couldn't get rid off.  Good thing, I've brought Off Lotion and used it at our convenience.

We had hot and cold shower, a sink and a toilet.  I'm very impressed at their shower room's space utilization and drainage system.  The tiles were dried off whenever we return at the end of the day.  It was clean and free of mildew too.

Breakfast Meals at the Coffee Lounge
During our stay, we were provided with breakfast meals with a choice of instant hot coffee or orange juice.  If you wish to avail of it, you can pay 150 php for it.

First Day Breakfast
The breakfast was prepared as soon as we were seated and served in a matter of minutes.  For the first day, we had fried sausages, luncheon meat and scrambled eggs with a cup of rice.

The printed rated are the same as the rate we got from Agoda.  But, we paid a bit more since there is an extra fee on Agoda and you can also avail of their advance booking rates for more savings.
