The location of this small hotel is good - in the heart of Coron Town with everything around you. Tour Agencies, Travel Agencies, Restaurants, small bars, shops, etc... The hotel itself is nicely decorated and rooms are clean and comfortable. My main issue was with the staff at the hotel, especially reception. They were quite uninterested, standoffish and a little unapproachable. At times, even something of a bad attitude. The other staff members around were ok, but not fantastic. Our rooms weren't cleaned at all for three days, we had cups and a full ashtray outside our rooms for the whole three days also (place isn't big, so certainly not difficult to keep on top of!) as did other rooms near us. Breakfast has to be booked for time the night before, and is 'ok' at best. Coffee, however, is absolutely awful! If you're looking for a decent place to stay without over-spending, this place is fine, if you'd like better service, look elsewhere. Honestly, i don't think i would stay here again.

We got the Queen Bed in the main ground floor facing the garden and it's quiet. The room is clean although washroom is very small so it won't be ideal for large size individuals. The buffet breakfast was amazing and very filling. It has Filipino breakfast and Western breakfast. Location is very ideal for island hopping. We will come back here again.

~Location~ This hotel is so close to everything – the port and market, the town, restaurants & bars – everything is easily accessible. ~The Room & Establishment~ My room was on the top floor with only one other room and very comfortable. I had (almost) everything I needed. Oddly there was a blanket but no top sheet and only a quilt which I ended up using when the aircon got a little chilly. Since I was leaving early and getting back late I never did get round to asking for a top sheet and simply used my sarong. Hot water/pressure: Both good Wifi: Good ~The Service~ The reception staff were friendly and helpful especially the evening receptionist. You need to order your breakfast the night before. I had 2 breakfasts and both needed to be take away given the time I was leaving for tours and both times I had to wait some time for it to be made and ready rather than able to simply pick it up and go. That said, I had the pancakes which were lovely. Communication: Good All in all I thought it was good value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to you.

I chanced on Balaibinda through a friend’s recommendation and was pleasantly surprised at this small gem of a B and B. Clean, cute with ample amenities for any traveller passing Coron. It’s also in the middle of town so you’re a walk away from most night spots. I’ll be back!

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights 3 days. Dina at the front desk was very nice. We had a room facing the street. It was the normal street noises but not too bothersome. Place is clean. There was AC, a fan and hot water. Bed and pillow was comfy. Liked that they had a blanket, most places it’s just a sheet. You pick what you want for breakfast the day before. The WiFi could be stronger but I realize that is most of Coron. We didn’t need a converter for our US plugs but not every socket worked. We took a tour (I recommend the ultimate tour (8 different places) we had an awesome time even with the on and off rain). It made our trip special. All in all a good stay, we would come back here.

Since we are not expecting 5 star hotel comfort and treatment, this is a good place to stay at a budget - good location (you can walk to the bank, the church and the restaurants) and good air conditioner. They need to improve on their breakfast meal - not appetising at all.

im giving this place a thumbs up for - location, accommodation, approachable and accommodating staff (Dinah and Rischel and the rest). With its reasonable price, its value for money. the whole place is clean, airy because of the pocket garden on the center The van service and the tour coordinated by the hotel (even cheaper than when we directly coordinated with the tour/travel office) were all on time. the only aspect that needs a little area for improvement is the choices of food for breakfast because if you are staying for 4 days, you begin to look for other menu, (of course because its the free breakfast) or you can eat at Ate Wengs infront of the lodge. Even a lot of foreigners eat there and its full pack at night because of the big serving/affordable price. Over all, our coron tour was memorable and hassle free because after a long day, we can rest at the lodge and we can buy all our other needs within the vicinity. will definitely recommend this lodge to friends and relatives

This is a boutique hotel in the heart of the city. The customer service is great and its within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The Lodge itself is picturesque with a pleasant feel and well maintained. The rooms are small but cozy and comfortable. The cool think about this Lodge is that you order your breakfast, which is included, the night before, tell them the time you want it and the next morning there it is. This is a great concept. Another cool concept is as you leave the Lodge you leave the room key on the reception counter and when you return for the night its there waiting for you so there is no need to carry the key around with you. Yes this is safe because the staff knows the guests and controls the room keys. I would recommend this hotel.

Balaibinda was central and very clean. We were concerned about noise but we were in a courtyard room and it was very quiet. The breakfast food was delicious and prompt which made it easy to keep to our schedule for tours. The staff was friendly and helpful during our stay. Highly recommend if you are staying in Coron for a few days!
