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.

I have to commend the staff for being so patient, helpful and accommodating. They sure made a difference. The rooms here are quite small, so you are better off booking the larger family rooms. Included breakfast is quite good. The location is very centric, next to the main square but you won't have bay views except from the rooftop. I...

If you are thinking of staying at this hotel, my suggestion is to look for another hotel to stay at. We were so unhappy during out stay here that I'm not sure where to start with the complaints. The courtyard room is tiny, there's about 2 feet space all around the Queen size bed, not much space to move around....

My wife and I stayed here for about 5 days. The hotel itself is located within walking distance to the best restaurants and bars that Coron has to offer, as well as multiple tour booking agencies and local stores. The rooms were comfortable and not too pricey (in my opinion). The room had a small fridge which was nice as...

This hotel doesn't worth. It is expensive and the service is really bad. Breakfast is always cold and late and staff is not very kind. Simething... Rooms are clean and the try to keep them free of mosquitos. Nevertheless, try to find other.
