We traveled in a group of 8 and stayed here for 4days and 3 nights. Booked 3 rooms, 2 triple sharing and 1 double.
Location: Walking distance to everything specially the port where boatmen meet the tourists for island hopping. Near the market should you need anything for your basic needs. It is basically just perfect :)
Lobby: Welcoming. Warm to the eyes since an open garden could be found inside. :)
Rooms: Clean and lovely. Used comforter for beddings and rooms are well lit. Average sized rooms but quite small for triple sharing. We didn't mind though since we only use them at night for sleeping.
Bathrooms: Clean. Provides basic toiletries you need like soap, shampoo and tissue. Bathroom also has a shower.
Roofdeck: Breathtaking. ;)
The only thing I didn't like with this hotel is that they don't have ready to serve meals. So at night, after all your tours, you still need to go out to eat unless you pre ordered something which I think will also be bought outside of the hotel.
Also black outs are common in Coron, so expect one. But this wont actually bother you since most of the time, you are out enjoying Coron's majestic sights :)
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Coron.
It's affordable yet offers quality. :)
