Very affordable, convenient and artistic place to visit and stay. The management is humble and kind too. Staffs are very nice to greet you every time they see you. We were amazed by those arts outside the hotel and even more captivated by the paintings and art works inside in each floor.

Even though I do not in particular like Kublai's art, this was a very nice stay and experience. Much fun to see and live in a hotel very different from the most. Furthermore, the staff is friendly and I had no problems with the rooms. Airy with big windows (that you could cover). The rooftop is great for breakfast and...

A hotel where all the hallway is filled with thousands of paintings of the son of the owner, no these are not any schoolboy's project paintings but great work of art. The owners are also very approachable and friendly. They make sure that the guests' needs are fulfilled. During my stay, one guest complained about their TV not working, so...

We originally planned to stay 1 night but eventually decided to stay 2 nights to see all the art here. As backpackers this place was quite a treat to the eye and sleep was good. If ever we come back to davao this is definitely the place to book again

I was intrigued by the pictures of the place online. I'm from New York City and like the arts to a degree. Everything was fine. I cleaned the AC filter myself but to me, a handyman that was no problem. Could have gotten the bell boy to do that. They have a restaurant on the second floor but I did...

Located in quiet, though accessible area, Ponce Suites is a great mid-market place. The baroque decoration is unique and pleasant. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are reasonably spacious in that range of the market. The only down-side is the internet connection which was extremely bad in November 2014 (apparently they are in the process of changing provider)....

Although it's not one of them high-rise fancy hotels, I would still prefer to stay here. The place has this homey and cozy feel. Plus it's a haven for artists and art-enthusiasts because they have all sorts of artworks -- sculptures, paintings, photographs, etc. Although it's a little off the main road, taxi ride is never a problem in Davao...
