This is a great place. Very well designed, comfortable, excellent service, hearty breakfast included. We had a wrap-around deck overlooking a forested taro field. Our room was clean, spacious and well laid-out. Highly recommended.
They deserve 10+ stars! FANTASTIC, modern, clean Bed & Breakfast apartment style “Hotel” one block down quiet residential street from downtown Koror. Hotel manager Mr Oya, breakfast chef & housekeeper Daisy (and their delightful and helpful spouses), all go out of their way to make you feel welcome, comfortable and safe. Garden Palace Palau is perfect for business travelers and scuba divers who want a modern, clean, comfortably air conditioned place to stay, along with the convenience of walking to town without having to rent a car. Each apartment styled room has a kitchenette. There are two full grocery stores only 1-2 blocks away and a wide selection of restaurants for grab ‘take-out’ food after a long day in business meetings or on the boat. In the mornings, just walk up to their roof-top dining area for a customize meal styled to your preferences (traditional American or Japanese breakfast). Garden Palace will provide transfers from/to Airport, even in the middle of the night! And, if you want to rent a car for the day, there are car rental agencies within easy walking distance. We cannot say enough positive things about our experiences at Garden Palace Palau. Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Oya and Daisy & Rome for an amazing and memorable stay in Palau!…
Great, friendly service. 2 min. walk to supermarkets/department stores and restaurants. Clean rooms. In-room kitchenette is a huge plus. Big space. Balcony is perfect for drying out wet bathing suits and gear. Nice, nutritious breakfast with mixed greens, fresh juice, eggs, sausage/ham, a selection of breads, coffee/tea. The manager and staff were very amenable and helpful, especially when we needed a slightly later checkout bc we went to Dolphin Pacific on our last day. Airport shuttle was another huge boon! Really easy car rental! Highly recommend this hotel!
The manager and staff are very friendly and always ready to help you.GREAT SERVICE !!!!!! One of the best hotels I stayed in the last years.( price /quality) Rooms are massive and private with nice view on the garden. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
If you want to be in town then this might be a good place to stay. Its close to a supermarket and some restaurants and apart from that there isn't much to see in town itself. Large clean rooms with kitchenette and small sitting area and balcony with no great views. The sheets appear to be clean and the towels a bit worn. Toiletries provided and water. The breakfast is very frugal but the staff are friendly.
My wife and I spent 11 nights here while on a diving vacation to Palau. Oya-san runs an incredibly welcoming hotel. His entire staff was wonderfully courteous and helpful. The rooms themselves, while not particularly fancy, are immaculately clean and delightfully large...at 525 square feet, the Deluxe Room was truly huge. The location is perfectly placed in downtown Koror, as it's just a block from two major supermarkets, a great massage spa, and a number of restaurants. Keep in mind, this is not a beach hotel (and Palau isn't really a 'beach' getaway.) If you want epic beaches, pick another island. But if you're looking for an incredible level of service in a small, caring family-run hotel, you won't find better than the Garden Palace Koror. Oh, and the $5-per-basket laundry is amazing! Most hotels charge $5 for one T-shirt. The Garden Palace charges $5 for an entire bucket. We'll be back in 2019 for sure.…
Although not the most economical hotel in Koror, our triple room was huge! with 4 full size beds and room for a small sitting area and kitchenette which was fully supplied with all the necessary appliances. Room was very clean and AC worked perfectly. Free breakfast was offered which was simple but adequate. Loved the fresh salad especially. Great service at front desk and complimentary beach towels are offered. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.
Warm and friendly staff, super clean and spacious room with well-equipped kitchen and equipment, Garden Palace Downtown is one of the best valued hotels operated by Japanese in Palau. It's located in the main street and the supermarkets and restaurants are all nearby within 5-min walk. Remember to book in advance to get a room as it's quite popular in town.
My husband and I spent 6 nights at Garden Palace in September. Our stay was excellent. There was a slight glitch at the start with confusion over our flight arrival time, which meant we had to wait at the airport, however this was all sorted and we were offered a voucher by way of apology. The staff at Garden Palace are unparalleled - they are the some of the friendliest and most attentive staff I have ever met. Garden Palace is quite a small establishment, therefore we really felt looked after - it is refreshing to stay somewhere where you are not simply 'one of the crowd' but are rather an honoured guest. Kazuyo booked us onto all the tours we wanted to attend, and was very helpful in providing advice/recommendations of the local area. Garden Palace is very conveniently located - short walk to two supermarkets and within easy walking distance of a number of restaurants. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The kitchenette facilities were great as they meant we could cook for ourselves, which we did most nights. All in all, a superb stay! Many thanks Kazuyo and team!…
Hotel located in the centre of town, 2 mins walk distance to central supermarket, you can buy all the stuff you need in Palau. If you need go to some top pick restaurant, they all provide free shuttle and you can book early, so will not be a problem. Very clean and big room, lots of space for put your diving gear. Room all has kitchen, and you can cook by yourself, and buy material from supermarket. Unfortunately we didn't find market to buy fresh sea food. Breakfast on the roof top is simple, but general ok. Will recommend this hotel for stay in Palau.
