My friends and I had an amazing time during our stay at Tenzai. They were very accommodating. The courtyard and common area was absolutely beautiful. Breakfast was included with our stay which was an added to bonus to our overall experience.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Not the most luxurious place but our basic needs were met! Free breakfast every morning and the front desk staff was so accommodating. If you're looking for somewhere affordable without skimping on the necessities...Tenzai is the place to go!

Tenzai Pension House is one of those accommodations that look better in real life than in website pictures. I’m so glad I decided to book two rooms with them. Here is my list of pros and cons. PROS: + Strong wifi + Courteous staff that provide personalized service (Example: They have a rule that breakfast starts at 7AM. When they...

Tenzai Pension House may not be the most popular place to stay in Palawan but definitely we were very satisfied with the service of their staff. They sent a driver to the Puerto Princesa Airport to fetch us. When we arrived at Tenzai, their friendly staff served complementary drinks to quench our thirst. The rooms are all air-conditioned. The room...

Just arrived yesterday here at Manila after my 3 days vacay at Puerto Princesa. It's indeed a hassle free visit. From planning of itinerary with their staff (Jessica) up until the day of my arrival, everything was great. Their place is small but very cozy. Little garden outside with wood carvings. Tasty "free" breakfast. They are even the one who...

Nice little place to stay, a total of 8 rooms only. We booked for 3 bed room but we were given a 4 bed room. Including good Filipino breakfast which they can prepare even as early as 5:00 AM. Very helpful receptionist . You can request for transportation from and to airport. They don't serve lunch and dinner, only snacks....

the trip to PPS was something me and my college seatmate booked last February 2015, not until the Saturday before we leave (which is on Monday) that we decided what to do exactly with our tour. And so, researching happened. Luckily I came across with Tenzai reviews, and all commended it for being clean (not to say at a very...

Stayed for a night on their room for three. I didnt have any difficulties communicating with this hotel even via text. They respond accordingly, politely and addresses all your questions promptly. I sent out my room inquiry a few days before my scheduled stay in the city, I was looking for an affordable but nice place to sleep in. I...

“All rooms are acceptable but check the water heater for the shower if functioning if you need it badly.”

“Pick a room with a table just outside of the door. Not all rooms have one. Nice for eating breakfast right near your room or for accessing better WiFi.”

“The area is only in one-level with a garden in the middle so views are good everywhere. Room 1 is a good choice though.”
