When you travel a lot, sometimes you need a break from shared dorms and crowded hostels. If you find yourself in Coron Town, I can't recommend this place enough. Close to bars, restaurants, market and shops yet far enough away for a good undisturbed rest. Coron Town itself is pretty small and quiet but for 1/2 nights, this place is...

The hotel is very centrally located right in the middle of town. 10-15 mins tricycle ride to nice restaurants and 10-15 mins walk to good restaurants and the 750+ steps Mount Tapyas. Also 10 mins tricycle ride to the pier where all excursion activities start. The hotel is clean and right sized for our family of 3. Airport hotel transfers...

This is categorized as a "specialty lodging" in TA. It is not a hotel and it is a step-up from a B&B.I booked a superior family room for 5 although there were only 2 of us because I wanted lots of space. Sure enough, my room was big with 3 single beds and a queen bed. The room has wood...

They say, do not judge a book by its cover. This is true for Balaibinda. Perhaps the small garden in the middle somehow turned the drab whitewashed building into something more lively. The rooms were quite clean and comfy enough after your adventures in the islands or exploring the town. Stores and restos are accessible just when you need to...

This place is in a decent location and the courtyard is nice. If you get a room here, definitely take the courtyard over the road option. Breakfast and wifi here are both on the budget side of things. We made an error in our booking, but when attempting to correct it, the manager wouldn't even talk to us. Not even...

This is a great central place to stay. Very close to the public market and the waterfront where most boat tours leave from. The room is basic but comfy. Breakfast is decent with a choice of phillipino or western breakfasts. They only serve water or coffee though. I would highly recommend the tour the offer around coron island but I...

Great location! We stayed in one of the 2 single bed courtyard rooms for a night. It was very cozy. The only complaint I had was the musky, damp smell in the room, but overall friendly and helpful staff, free wifi, a/c, complimentary breakfast. Would stay there again.

This is a small hotel near to the public market in Coron that offers accommodation a step above basic. My room was small but adequate with air conditioning. The bed was comfortable. Staff were friendly and arranged my tours competently. The area surrounding the hotel is typically ramshackled, but did not feel unsafe. There is no beach in the immediate...

Friendly staff in a great location. They take your breakfast order the day before and you have a selection from western/Chinese/filo foods. There were 5 of us staying in one room so for us, it was good value for money.

Rooms were spacious and clean, had to remind house keeping to replace our towels a couple of times but otherwise no complaints. Breakfast in the restaurant isn't overly imaginative but delicious nonetheless. Biggest selling point of this place is its location; central to the main square and bangka docks as well as restaurants, bars and ATMs.
