Arrived Koror late night, stayed a hotel for one night until boat transfer to Peleliu next morning. Simple, utilitarian hotel---which is exactly what we needed. Van shuttle from airport waiting for us, check-in easy, good adjacent restaurant for breakfast, room clean and in good condition. No frills hotel provided place to stay while en route next location.
Stay there for 5 nights during my diving tour in Palau. Choose the hotel because it was close to the dive center I used. Location in general is not so exciting as close to the Oiltanks at the harbor. But also beside the Red Rooster brewery ( Beer is quite good and there have different tastes) However room was large and clean. Furniture and interior is quit old (guess from the 80th) but in general ok. So can recommend the hotel if y need it for sleep only. Breakfast beside the hotel in a bistro-supose belong to the hotel. The only mistake I made was that I book it via Booking.com which charged me a 3times higher price than the price offered by the hotel. So.pls. take care.
Great place to stay for the Aggressor live-aboard as the pick-up jetty is at the back of the hotel; the receptionists could not have been more helpful! They arranged for me to be collected at the airport at 2:30 AM and only charged $10 for the transport. After the live-a-board trip they checked me and 3 others in very early after the Aggressor tender drop off at 8:00 AM; what you are supposed to do from 8:00 am to Noon only God knows, fortunately the hotel checked every one in within 45 minutes of our arrival. Obviously if the hotel was full then they wouldn't be able to do that so what you would do for 4 hours I don’t know. On departure day I checked out at 12:00 noon, however, I could have stayed in the room until 1:00 PM. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels around the world and the receptionists and staff were superb. Thank you for all your help and caring nature.…
Great place for the money. Super clean, cold a/c, hot showers, comfortable beds, inroom safes and you are within walking distance to several restaurants and bars. Restaurant next door is great for breakfast which is right on the water. You are also within walking distance to Sam's tours. This place is all you need if you are in Palau to scuba dive.
Fortunately, this was just a day room we stayed in from 11 am until 11 pm. Sad little hotel with very nice employees. My evaluation is that it is tolerable, but so many better options in Koror. The location is okay and the restaurant just out the front door is decent.
If you are traveling to Palau, the first thing you’ll notice is how expensive the hotel are! West Plaza Malakal is a great hotel for the price. It doesn’t offer a lot but I would 100% stay there again for the price. The beds were comfortable, and the staff is extremely professional, polite, helpful, and just overall make the stay better than one of the 5 star hotels I stayed at last year. I was there to dive, and it was right down the street but the dive shop, which is all I needed. They do have wi-fi, but it doesn’t reach to the rooms. My recommendation is to try and get a room on the lowest level possible and stay close to the stairwell if wi-fi is a must!
Nice, clean, and very cool air conditioners. Some rooms have a hard time getting any WiFi service, but I got plenty in mine. Perfect if you are here for diving and need a clean place to stay. Nice little restaurant next door.
We were two couples in a 2bd, 1ba unit (301) with full kitchen. Lots of room. Shower was great. Beds slept well. Very clean. No bugs. Maid service was excellent. Walking distance to Sam's Tours, where we dove. Walking distance to several excellent restaurants.
We were spent 1 week in West Plaza Malakal. Apartment was big and clean. Comfortable. Nice big bed. Kitchen with full equipment (we not used but it is cheap option for food in Koror). Around is rew nice restaurants and bars. The best and cheap local food you can eat in Carp restaurant. It is only 5 minutes walk. Kramer pub is the very nice place for drink, food and live music. Fantastic view from the terrace.. a specially in the evening. 5 minutes walk. Hotel restaurant is good only for breakfast. Food is good. Dinner prices and beer prices are highest in this area 😉 Staff in hotel were Very friendly and helpfull. No swimming pool and no any garden is one bad point for me. In the picture is the view from hotel restaurant terrace. Thank you very much.
What can I say other than its very basic! There are absolutely no frills, it's an air conditioned box with a bed. The AC noisy, the bed is lumpy, there is no free WIFI and the pay WIFI was none existent. Fortunately for me, I was only staying there for 12 hours; flights leave Palau at a ridiculous time in the morning. If you were coming on your dream dive holiday and you stayed at the West Plaza, it would be a disaster!
