Hotel La Corona de Lipa is an affordable and nice place to stay in case you need to be in Lipa for a few days. It sits right across Sm City Lipa and a short ride/drive to Robinson's Place Lipa.

The room I stayed in had the basic necessities including wifi with a decent speed.

There doesn't seem to be provisions for PWDs or Senior Citizens though. I had informed them on my reservation that I am a PWD, but still gave me a room on the second floor. No elevator, so I had to go up a set of stairs which had high steps.

Also, the bathroom had a smell of sewage that I had to request assistance from housekeeping. I knew they could nit do much bug appreciated that they took time to pour some freshener (actually a sweet smelling fabric softener) down the pipes to hide the smell, at least temporarily.

If you are bringing your vehicle, you will need to slow down as you approach the hotel as you might just miss the entrance which is right next to the pedestrian overpass crossing to SM City Lipa.

The staff were very helpful. They always assisted me in carrying my stuff up and down the stairs whenever necessary. Everyone was very courteous and made you feel like an honored guest.

Overall, I recommend Hotel La Corona de Lipa as a good place to stay.

I love the deluxe room that I booked in this hotel. Great place to unwind. Though it is beside at the hi-way, the place is still quiet. The breakfast is very good here so I recommend to book a room with free breakfast. Didn't able to use the pool because of cold weather. All in all, I love this hotel.

I'm staying from Dec 1- Dec 23. Typing this now on a Friday night and the event outside + karaoke rooms didn't give me sleep. Consider the noise especially if you'd work in the night shift.

Old but clean beds and restroom. Basic breakfast. Best location. Great customer service (super polite and prompt). Horribly noisy.

With limited options in Lipa City, Hotel La Corona de Lipa seems to be a default place to stay in this area. The hotel is conveniently located near SM City Lipa where you just pass through an overpass just outside the hotel. However, the hotel is already exhibiting its age with its shabby facilities:
- Old rooms but clean beds and comfort rooms
- Thin walled rooms as you hear the noise from an events tent beside the hotel rooms
- Outdated small swimming pool but appeared to be clean and clear

The well-trained and friendly staff more than made-up for the shortcomings. Their restaurant also serve great ala carte dishes but the free buffet breakfast fell flat with little options.

In summary:
Good points:
- Great staff
- Near SM City Lipa
- Great food from resto except buffet breakfast

Points for Improvement:
- Buffet breakfast needs major upgrade, high room rates should more than justify that
- Thin blankets

Be mindful of the noise from the venue tent just outside the hotel rooms. Even on a Sunday morning there is a worship service so be prepared - nothing against that, just take note in your plans. Limited parking spaces, too.

Overall a good place to stay overnight in when in Lipa City.

I regularly stay at La Corona for business, every quarter, for one full week. The hotel is across SM Lipa-- full access to restaurants to eat, department store if you need to shop, or cinemas to watch a movie or two. Lipa is quite popular for blackouts, good thing the hotel has a generator. Breakfast is plated on a Monday (I think) and for the rest of the days, it's buffet-- good bfast selection. You can order food from their café, Maria's, if you don't want to go out. Food prices and rooms are okay. They let my dog sleep in for 2 days, so that was nice.

WIFI however, is something that they need to improve on-- it's weak inside the room or most of the time it's in and out.

Too much yellow/ mood lighting, no white light. I had trouble putting on make up because of this. I know make-up junkies/MUAs will understand.
