The staff is incredible! They were willing to go the extra mile for everything we requested or planned to do. They even helped us find a place to stay as we couldn't extend, as they didn't have vacancy. Perfect for a minimalistic place to sleep. The area is walkable, with a short distance to the port for tour voyages.

4/10 Fair

Basic and clean room but too noisy for me
The owner was very serviceminded and arranged AirPort transfer and also lended us a mosqito net since we didnt bring our own and there was none in the room. Show is also very fast in answering messages before our visit. The room is very basic but clean. But it is VERY NOISY and warm. A lot of noice from street, dogs barking and from the aircon and fan and from generator. The AC was not so cold either so it was very warm. Due to the noise (it felt like bed was vibrating from the noise from AC and genrator) we checked out after 1 night (had pre paid for 3) and changes hotel. Askes for a refund of at least 1 night but first the owner refused. But after emailing hotels I got refunded. All and all it is a nice and cosy basic accomodation with walking distance from the beach (around 3 min). But you should not be a light sleeper when staying here.

10/10 Exceptional

Mountainside Inn is a small and very basic family run guesthouse with only 5 rooms, located perfectly central within the little town of El Nido, but a bit off the busy Main Street. Rooms are tiny and just fit a 1,40 m bed and a small bathroom. Latter has cold water only, but given the climate it’s really all you need. Aircon is noisy, but I did not need it even though it was quite hot outside. During power shortages they have a generator which is noisy as well, but my room was to the other side so it was not a problem. The place is clean and well maintained. What makes this place special are it’s incredible friendly owners, who really do care about you and will make sure you have a good time in El Nido. If you look for a basic and fair priced accommodation there I can recommend it.

オーナーや従業員のホスピタリティーが素晴らしく、いつもニコニコ対応してくださいました! 滞在中、コーヒーが無料です。 たまに停電し、Wi-Fiや扇風機が停止しますが、伝えると発電機で発電してくれます! (誤ってエアコンなしの部屋を選んでしまったため、猛暑&じめじめしたステイでしたがこれは私のミスです)

Kan varmt rekommendera!
Enkelt boende, bra läge med nära till allt. De fixade alla utflykter till oss på hotellet, var jättesmidigt! De som äger hotellet är en familj och var väldigt hjälpsamma med allt, trevliga och tillräckligt duktiga på engelska. Kan varmt rekommendera boendet!

Jag tyckte vistelsen på mountain side in var bra. Familjen som bor där är hjälpsamma när du ber om råd. Hotellet ligger nära hamnen och nära restauranger. Det blev strömavbrott ganska ofta men de hade en generator som gjorde att fläkten och lamporna funkade. Wi-fi var sådär men funkade tillfredställande.
