The staff are very accommodating. I stayed in both Tower 1 and Tower 2. The latter is more modern but then it is an old hotel so I guess some evidence of it will show up. Anyway, the rooms are clean and they provided toiletries. I did not have the time to enjoy the pool. I will definitely stay here...

Great place, great value. Location was fantastic and the staff were helpful and friendly. The bar located on the 3rd floor was fantastic. I would stay at the hotel again. I visited most of the tourists attraction in Davao and enjoyed the trip.

We had an overnight stay in this hotel to celebrate our anniversary sometime last year. The hotel is good, clean and the services are fine. The only thing that we can't appreciate and perhaps, makes the hotel not a good place to really unwind is the small pool. It has no area where you can sit down an relax.

As always. I never get to be disappointed in choosing this hotel every time I visit Davao and spend my new year with my family and friends. It's always been my first choice. The place is so close to everything such as shopping arcades, convenient stores like 711 and local stores that has everything you need. The famous BBQ kiosk...

You can tell the place was probably nice at one time (maybe 8-10 years ago), but at this point ‘not’ to western standards … functioning hot water and cool aircon, bedding was ok, make sure you get breakfast as inclusive to the pricing. It’s another one of those locations where they try to penny pinch you for as much as...

This is a 4-5 star option, right in the middle of Davao city. The rooms are very large and clean, the air conditioning worked perfectly, and the bed was comfortable. My room even had a partial view out towards the bay. The buffet breakfast was good with impeccable service. The only thing I didn't like was the long walk down...

The security staff and food & beverage staff were great! Gives you lots of tips on how and where to go and always helpful. Front desk is a different story. Their smiles I find not genuine and they talk to us like they'd rather be somewhere else. It's like they don't like what they're doing unlike the other staff I...

This hotel is right in the CBD and very handy to People's Park. The room I stayed in was on the 7th floor and it was reasonably quiet. Bed was comfortable and the room itself was big and spacious. The staff at the dining room are very friendly and helpful and nothing was ever a problem. The front desk personnel...
