          Good when you stay only for sleeping”

          Cheap, central, nice stuff

          We spent in hotel 8 nights. First days it was like a shock. We expected low-quality, but we were not ready for room 2x2 meters, with no any place for your clothes except leaving all staff in your bag, self-service toilet without seat, 100% hearing through "paper walls", getting like “turbine noise” effect when your wall-neighbors switch on fan, a lot of ants, broken door to the toilet. I can't say that all above are minuses - you should understand that you didn't pay to claim for the comfort. All hotels under 50 usd in El Nido have same conditions only because this place is so overpriced. After some time we relaxed about absence of any comfort in the room and returned only for sleeping. A lot of negative emotions were smoothed by nice fellow at Front Desk – Mark. He is some kind of “heart” of this hotel, he was so helpful and willing to make the best for our stay. He even boiled water for us to wash ourselves when we bemoaned for cold shower discomfort. He offered us breakfast twice cheap then in town, he gave us extra-towels and even changed pillow when we said that used to sleep on little pillow. He arranged clean of our room upon request any time we need. So he rescued all the situation. This hotel has nice lodge, some kind of open-space living room where we met a lot of other nice travelers. We made conversations, experience-change, had meal-time there and even lay with book reading.

          El Nido vacation”

          A short 2 days getaway at EL Nido and we chose to stay here at Strong Tower Inn. Property is near to the beach area and many shops around the town. Its a house turned into hotel so dont expect big rooms. Walls are wooden partition and we could hear the guy snoring in the next room at night. Staff is very accommodating just like every other person in El Nido. No hot shower. You can find better hotels within the same price range just across the street. Somewhere where u don't have to leave your shoes outside at hotel reception and walk bare footed inside. including your room and bathroom.

          The staff there are super friendly, we loved them. They arranged us fantastic tours and borrowed us the umbrella to go out when it was raining. The location is fantastic! The room was big and the fan was enough for us. There is no hot water but they gave us boiling water to mix. The bathroom wasn’t fantastic but it is super ok. They don’t offer western breakfast but there are a lot of options nearby. To improvement it would be nice if they clean the room during the stay :) thank you strong tower!

          Great value for the money”

          After a couple weeks without power or running water, having a working fan and shower was sublime :). It's old, the walls are thin, and the toilets are basic, but I knew that from the pictures and reviews, so I was completely satisfied. It's behind Blessed Inn, down a little alleyway-was a little nervous at first, but felt completely safe my entire stay. If you are wanting a place at rock-bottom price, that feels more like a home than a hotel, then this is it. Don't expect the extra amenities if you don't want to pay for them. The staff was just the way I like them-out of the way until you need them, and friendly when you talk to them. Free coffe in the morning, which was nice, self serve. Would definitely stay here again!

          Really good location in the centre of El Nido town proper. I think everything is quite expensive in El Nido but the accommodation was reasonable. The room was clean, as was the bathroom which was an en-suite and not shared. Toilet roll provided and free coffee in the morning! Can’t complain about that!

          This is a good accommodation for a short stay directly in El Nido City. The owner are very friendly and the rooms look better than expected, we also have a clean private bathroom. For El Nido it's very cheap, approximately 800 Pesos for a doubleroom ;)

          The inn was undergoing renovation but it already have rooms available for booking. The room was as it was described and there is nothing much to expect but air-conditioned room, good big bed and a usable bathroom/toilet/washroom. This makes your stay really cozy and just focused on resting. No TV or wifi, nor free breakfast but there’s free coffee in the morning and the staff was really helpful and nice. No hot water and shower needs a little adjustment but we were not complaining. We are thankful for everything the inn has to offer and for our stay. The location is about 10-15 minutes tricycle ride from the terminal at php50. It is near a 24-hour tapsihan, a food park, a spa and walking distance to the shoreline/port that begins the island tour - which is reall wonderful.

          Strong Tower Inn:The place here is really average, smelled dirty water in the room. Room needs maintenance, holes in wall, lot of mini ants in the bathroom. Internet is poor at best, but to be expected in El Nido. However, cheapest tours in El Nido. Booked A and C for 1000-1200 pesos and transfer by van to Port Barton for 500 pesos. Staff always smiling and really nice. Free coffee is a plus. Budget place but I believe you could find better for the price in El Nid

          Lovely stay with amazing staff”

          Location, staff, common area

          Our stay there was very pleasant. The rooms are simple but have everything you need. The common area is really nice and there are always people you can chat with. The reason why I'd definitely stay there again is the staff. My friend had an accident in El Nido and they were super helpful, and took very good care of us while we were there. Thank you so much again!

          Good price for el nido ”

          Nothing special but does what it says on the tin. Room was clean and aircon worked. Wifi temperamental. Shower didn't have hot water. No toilet seat. Toilet doesn't always flush have to use bucket sometimes. Tap in bathroom doesn't work. Sometimes water will come back up drain. But for el nido, the price you paid it passes.

          Hidden gem”

          One of the most value for money aircon room you could find in El Nido. Good location close to attractions and restaurants/shops, yet very quiet.

          5 stars for staffs. but ok facility”

          Staffs are extremely kind and helpful. We ended up extending our stay. Price is CHEAPER if you pay them in person rather than through agoda (300php difference). They arrange tours and van transport here as well. Room was okay with good AC but washroom could be more clean.. Toilet seat is super low and was very uncomfortable. Wifi is alright.. like anywhere else in El nido pretty much. Bed is spacious and location is amazing! They are located on the main street but not loud at night :) We slept like babies

          Good budget place in El Nido”

          It's a good place to base yourself in El Nido. Great location, friendly staff, comfortable room. Book exchange on balcony is a good bonus :)

          Excellent backpacker hotel”

          Cheap, great staff and friendly place

          One of the cheap guesthouse in El nido. I had a long stay there (longer than I though thanks to a typhoon!) and enjoyed the kindness and the smile of our hosts. Rooms are great for a short stay, with good wifi and a common area always full of interesting travellers. It could be cleaner though (lot of ants) and the rustic flushing system for toilets stinks after a few days. Still a good address managed by wonderful people.

          Simple place which was being renovated at the moment but it was a nice distance from the touristy area. We didn't intend on staying in El Nido but due to the fact there were no more boats running at the time we arrived, we found this place which was quiet and the staff friendly. The place ins't anything special but for one night it's not bad.

          Room was small, but clean and functional. AC worked well. Good location, 5 mins to beach and main strip. El Nido accommodation in general seems overpriced, and poor quality, so this place is a safe bet for not too much money.
