Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff and gave us all a welcome drink. This hotel/lodge is the place to stay in Coron. It has a perfect location. It is within town proper. Everything you want and need is near; market, Restaurants, convenience store, beer house, seaport and souvenir shops are just around a minute to 5 mins by... More

We stayed in Coron for 5 nights total and I booked Balaibinda for the first 2 nights since we were hardly going to be in the hotel at all those days and so it did not make sense to spend much on accommodation. It took a very long time (usually over a week) for email replies to be sent when... More

The establishment is very nice. The entrance way has an open air concept complete with a small but charming garden area. It has a roof top terrace where you can get a good view of the town. Clean rooms and friendly staff. It is very reasonably priced and would not hesitate to come back again.

We spent a couple of nights here in a courtyard room. While the room was small, the AC was good and it was nice and quiet so we got a good night's sleep. It's a fairly basic, but new hotel walking distance to restaurants, bars, and shopping. The wifi was rather slow, but we found that to be an issue... More

Me and my 3 kids stayed at Balaibinda for 5 days(Dec 24-28). From the moment I made a reservation via phone until the time we stayed there, we did not encountered any problem. Accommodating staff, clean room and very nice location. Accesible to everything. Near port, market, church, restaurants etc.

Just the night before, we'd stayed at a different hotel just up the road as we needed an extra night and Balaibinda didn't have the rooms available. Unfortunately although Balaibinda was rated one star higher than the other hotel, we felt that we had gone back down a star as the other hotel was more modern and new. Regardless, Balaibinda...

This place has all the essentials . We booked here June last yr and stayed in the Queen room located at the roof deck. Though the room is a bit small, it's very clean and bed was very comfortable. It has mini fridge and flat TV with cable channels. The room has a small balcony and is located near the... More

This hotel is small, maybe 15 rooms. The rooms are small but very well appointed with strong air conditioning units, flat screen TV with cable and hot water. There was a brownout but their generator kicked in and all power was restored within minutes of losing power. I've never considered staying in the city, I always wanted to get out... More
