I echo the comments from other reviews. A very comfortable hotel close to everything. Large rooms with fridge, safe and AC, even larger bathroom.
International style restaurants are within walking distance and others are only a 50 peso ride by tricycle.
A laundry service is available opposite the hotel
Tours can be booked at the front desk.
The breakfast buffet was good if a little monotonous.
The manager Mr Jesse quick dealt with a few small problems on arrival and was very helpful during our stay.

Good value for money- recommended.

We absolutely LOVED Canvas Boutique Hotel. My 2 friends and I were stranded in Puerto Princesa after the Coronavirus travel ban. We booked at Canvas because they are so close to the airport (a very short walk) since we knew we were going to have to go to the airport a lot to try to get on any mercy flights. Not only was the room clean and cozy, with reliable air conditioning, but customer service was top notch. They catered to our every need, including sending their own workers to the airport to see if there were any updates they could communicate to visitors. They gave us a 50% discount on our stay to help us financially, even while knowing that after we got out there wouldn’t even be more guests because travel into Puerto Princesa was banned for a month. Please stay here to support this wonderful business, but also if you’re looking for a very comfortable stay!

The Canvas Boutique Hotel is a wonderful relaxing destination to stay just a 'stones throw' from the airport. The staff are all extremely courteous and friendly. Especially Mae in the restaurant on the evening shift who was most concerned for our fellow Australians and wildlife during the recent devastating fires. She remembered everything we talked about and prided herself on remembering our dr

A modern hotel with good facilities and literally 2 minutes from the Airport!
the staff have been so kind and courteous during our double stay in Puerto Princessa. Rooms are generously sized, comfortable beds, lap top compatible safe, good aircon, rainfall shower.
Anytime we have contacted reception there has been a swift response without fail. The art and decor throughout is fresh and inviting. One niggle is that the hard surfaces throughout can create extra noise so maybe some actual canvas on some walls will prevent the noise from bouncing around so much as doors close etc. Despite this the hotel receives a full vote of confidence.

We booked and paid the hotel in advance, however upon arrival the hotel said they didn’t have any available rooms. After an hour or so they finally provided us with an average alternative. They asked if we wanted the room, if so, they could fit the two beds together to make it a double. After accepting this offer, they told us they can’t move the beds.

The room is okay and clean. The bathroom is one of the better ones we’ve seen on our trip. The wall behind the beds has a huge crack in it.

When booking, we were promised a pool. However upon check-in we were informed that the pool is closed for some months due to renovations (right outside our room, work starting at 0730 in the mornings).
For checkout, we inquired whether we could get a late checkout and the lady at the desk said we could checkout at 4pm for an additional fee of 500php. The day of checkout, they said ‘Oh, no it’s 1500php now.’ So watch out, there may be attempts of scamming.

I feel lucky to have a Tagalog speaking partner, because the front desk people do not speak nor understand English.

There is no daily housekeeping as one would expect at such a hotel. The air conditioning repeatedly shuts off automatically at 4AM, raising the room temperature to 26 degrees Celsius in 20 minutes.

We got a 8.30AM wake up call from the front desk that our van to El Nido was waiting for us. We never booked this and had no desire to take this.

We found this hotel excellent all round. The staff were incredibly polite and friendly, from the reception to the restaurant. Lovely pool, although a shame there aren’t many sun beds. The rooms are gorgeous and all equipped with a kettle, mini fridge and safe. The food at the restaurant was very good and really well priced and the cocktails even better and so cheap! Highly recommend.

My family of 4 stayed at Canvas Boutique Hotel in January 2020. It was my sister who has a business in Coron who found this hotel for us.

The rooms were very spacious and I particularly loved the flooring. The shower area is separate from the toilet and is separate from the vanity area. Very functional design, as you don't have to hurry up so that the other guest in your room can use the facility. Strategically located about 2 MINUTES from the airport.

The breakfasts were excellent! The food were really very good.

I think the best part of this hotel are the staff! From the security guard, to the receptionist, housekeeping and most of all the restaurant staff. Filipinos are naturally polite and friendly but the staff of Canvas Boutique Hotel went above and beyond.

I will definitely go back there and I do highly recommend this hotel. Our experience was truly AMAZING!!! Thank you.

Great place to stay close to the airport. Well located for other attractions too. The hotel has an individual, funky style. It has a great airy, lobby, a restaurant, bar on the ground level with an outside pool. All look really nicely designed. We were only staying for one night and arrived late and left early but the rooms were large, comfortable and spacious with two queen sized beds, individual artwork in the room and separate loo, shower and sink space. The room was well laid out and quiet, air conditioning was ok. We left really early for a red eye flight but the hotel were kind enough to box up a breakfast (banana bread was delicious). The hotel also offer a complimentary airport shuttle service, so this was perfect for us. Would definitely recommend.

This hotel was very accommodating, friendly, clean and comfortable. We ended up getting an early check in at 6am as we had an early flight and a late check out at 6pm as my wife wasn't feeling well for additional cost. The staff also tracked down a large soup bowl to bring my wife soup in the room when she wasn't feeling well. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and on time. Added bonus was the hotel dog Spike that was very well taken care of. This hotel exceeded my expectations and I appreciate all the hospitality!

It was more than 3 years ago since the last time I visited here and I could say that their staff, lobby interior almost did not chance as well as comfortable bed with fresh linens. Kudos for that! They even went beyond for having a surprise setup in our room (really appreciate it, thank you!) and a complimentary airport transfers.

But even though it was in deed a very good stay, I will still recommend some improvement ;)
1. Please have the pool renovated (the pool was the main reason i booked for canvas 3 years ago, and to my surprise - it was really not in good status today. Please have it fix so we can use it the next time we visit)
2. Have the wall cracks checked (toilet & bedroom specifically top of headboard
3. Add 1 more pillow per guest inside the room
4. Provide slippers and basic toiletries (especially toothbrush)

Again thank you very much and I hope to book with you again in our future travels :)

the hotel is just right across the airport. Yes they do bring you to the airport. They also fetch you upon arrival.

Yes they can help you with the tour but cheaper if you make the rounds of the travel agencies near the souvenir shops. Booking tours via the hotel proves p500-1,000/pax more expensive.
