Carrying a huge travel-worn backpack, Rod and I finally arrived in front of Empire Suites Hotel after hours of traveling from Port Barton, a small coastal village in Palawan, Philippines. Feeling very tired but everything has changed soon as we entered the hotel’s stylish lobby and was initially greeted by their friendly receptionist.
We were actually even more thankful as we stepped into our stunning room with a cold welcome drink waiting for us.
The room isn’t really that spacious but surprisingly is that we have it all to ourselves.

Treat yourself from a full day of sightseeing in the comfort of your room or take advantage of the hotel’s recreational facilities, including massage. For reliable service and professional staff, Empire Suites caters to your needs.
The hotel’s toilet and bath is a bit cramped but is clean enough even for the pickiest comfort room critics. Hot water is also available thanks to their dispenser which is a plus factor for me because I can’t live without a coffee.
Empire Suites Hotel also provides complimentary breakfast meals. Their menu consists mostly of traditional Filipino choices, but I personally wanted to try the more local ones. There were crispy bacons, fried chickens, corned beefs, sausages and eggs. There were breads, jams, cheeses, butter and fruits.
Gorgeous room, excellent service, superb food trip experience and exceptional view of the busy street of Puerto Princesa City. More than enough I must admit.
