Very nice room. Clean. Good ambiance and relaxing. Quiet place. Nice location. Very near to the restaurants and ATM machine. Friendly and accommodation staff. Very recommended room accommodation. Also, there's a Zagu (pearly shake) at the front of the lodge. (fyi)

We stayed here for two nights as we wanted to stay centrally for our coron trip. Group of 5. Location- very good. right in the middle of town proper! Plenty of tricycles about to take you to and from places. Also, the port where boats will take you for island hopping is only five minutes away by tricycle. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby! Room-for group of 5, we had 5 single beds and breakfast with hot and cold drinks included. Breakfast was adequate for the price and must be pre-ordered the night before. Amenities- no pool. They have rooftop hanging out area though we never used it. Budget lodging if you want to stay in town proper. Do not expect luxury. It is a budget friendly lodge. Staff- accommodating. We had issues with our sink nearly coming off the wall and

Great place to stay in Coron. Very near to all the places that you need. Hotel staff ia very accommodating, friendly and always greets you with a smile. They are also very knowledgeable with the places that you can visit in Coron. The room that we got was good for the price (we have stayed in superior room 5), has 1 queen size bed and 3 single beds, great for a small family or group. Only concern on the room was the toilet, since the room can accommodate upto 5-6 persons, 1 bathroom is not enough. The room that we got was not near the busy street side, so it's very peaceful and quiet during our stay. If you want to get a tan but dont want to go to the beach... you can just sunbathe at the top floor of the lodge. There's also a Zagu at the front of the lodge which is very

Balaibinda is ideal for people who are on a budget, who wants to see the whole town proper without spending much on paying for tricycle to go around the area, who likes to be at the center and who wants to be treated with great amenities for less. The hotel is strategically located a few meters from the wharf where all the boats were docked for island-hopping tours and walking distance from a variety restaurants, pastry shops, souvenir stores, the famous Mt Tapyas where you can see the big cross on the top of it, the town's San Agustin Parish Church and a 25 minutes tricycle ride to the famous saltwater Maquinit Hot Spring. We got the Roadside Queen room facing the street for one of our Honeymoon stopovers and had free breakfast included in our booking. Initially, we thought the

Balaibinda is in the heart of the town proper and very near the port. We were greeted with warmth and welcome drinks by their staff. All of the staff are very accommodating, especially the 2 boys, one of them even quite concerned with my friend who was not feeling well then. Room is quite big that it could accommodate 3 single beds and 1 queen sized bed. Bathroom is small and there's no shower curtain, but bathroom tissue is readily available whenever we asked for supply. Hot water, cups and saucers, teaspoons are always available in their dining area. Service is not 24-hours, though. But overall, this place is highly recommended.

cute little hotel. street side rooms have unbearable road noise so the cheap rooms probably not worth it if you are a lite sleeper.AC works well but doesn't kill street noise. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast but you have to order it the day before, and pick a time you will eat, not convenient because you never know when the street noise will wake you up. Beds are very comfortable, wifi very slow. Inside rooms seem quiet. Can tan on third floor but you will be laying on tile floor. Some sun lounges would be nice as there is nowhere to suntan in coron

PROS: - Located at the heart of town: you can literally walk to Mt. Tapyas, restaurants, market, churches (both INC and Catholic), plaza, port, drugstores, hospital, etc. - Staff are very friendly and accommodating. They promptly answer your inquiries and they attend to your requests as soon as they can. They can also arrange tours (for 50 pesos less than the usual price) and airport transfers for you. - Interiors are also cozy and relaxing. Nice to relax in after a full day tour or your flight. - Towels provided are better than most lodges I've been to. You can also have it changed every day of your stay. - Beds are also comfortable to sleep in and A/C adequately cools the room. Room also has a ceiling fan in case of brownout. CONS: - Room is quite cramped. Room seemed to be

Ask Ms. Geena :) 4. they are also near to Mt. Tapyas. :) 5. friendly staffs and they are very accommodating. 6. Breakfast is included which is very convenient especially if you have tours! they have menu to choose from. they prepare the food beforehand so upon arrival they will ask you to pick your breakfast. 7. Aircon is working 8. they have hot and cold showers. both are working as well. 9. free use of towels and you can ask them to change if you are staying there for long 10. toiletries are available also 11. they have free

Cozy and peaceful in the middle of Coron town! The bed is perfect for a long tiring day. The service & cleanliness are very impressive. The breakfast is freshly made and served on time as you requested. The only suggestion i may ask is to upgrade the foods( though they're just ordering from different sources). I tried the Tapa was so hard and chewy, pancake was good, french toast is totally wrong, omelette was too sweet and the bread was taste like old. Otherwise, whenever i came to Coron I stayed here as I love this place.

It is a bit expensive if you are travelling on a budget. Room are very clean, Wi-Fi is working very well and A/C too. The only bad thing is if your room is on the street you couldn't sleep very well for the noisy from the street. Breakfast was good and simple.
