Would never thought that this hotel would offer a relaxing scene to my tiring work load. First hotel that I slept thru the night without waking to get a drink of water or go to the comfort room. Plus, event when my room was located near the road, I never heard any noise coming from the outside. Best business hotel... More

Booked a standard King room at a very good rate. Front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in the rate, and it was more than adequate. The hotel is in a great location minutes away from Davao chinatown and downtown. Will be staying here again in may!! Highly recommend it!!!

It's a new place and clean. It's three stories hotel with NO ELEVATORS! Staff are NOT accommodating. They don't greet their guest nor smile. Of course, except from the guard who is polite and courteous. Their receptionist looks like she is not happy when guests are checking in. I hope the management will read the comments here so that they... More

For the price, you can and should only expect basic services. We rented a standard room with a king sized bed (with breakfast) online. When we got there, we were given complimentary two bottles of water and a key to our room. Our room was on the second floor, there is no lift so we took the stairs to our... More

What you see is what you get. Less than 5 minutes taxi ride from Gaisano Mall. This hotel is indeed very basic. The front-desk staff are really not that friendly. Kudos to Kuya Guard though as he was very helpful. However, for the other staff of the hotel, I guess they need additional training when it comes to 'customer service'.... More

North Zen Basic Spaces, located in Davao City, is relatively near to many commercial establishments, schools, parks, and other offices in Davao City. You won't have any problem moving around Davao, when your staying in North Zen. Though it's amenities is limited, I really loved the cozy lobby space where you can hang around and browse your laptop or read... More

We've stayed at North Zen a few times because of the great price for the room - $15 US for a single room on Agoda. It is located about 10 min walk from Gaisano Mall, and is also near Santa Ana Wharf. The rooms are basic - it is called Basic Spaces after all! - and are just large enough... More

I had a good experience at North Zen. I was a bit skeptical because of the low price in the beginning but as it turned out, the staff were extremely friendly, the room was safe and clean and it suited my 5 days stay perfectly.
