The Hotel itself is great. The location is nice, making walks to some nearby attractions fairly easy. The staffs are polite, kind and they greet you with a warm smile. They are also very helpful especially when you needed directions to get to a certain point in the hotel. The food is great, makes you want to go for a... More

(though this was a sponsored trip) Walking distance from the famous People's Park and Municipal Hall. Overall it was a great stay.The staff are friendly and helpful which is very important for a place to stay away... More

It was my second time to visit this hotel. I was amazed with the improvement of the service. It was satisfying. The staffs were kind and very attentive. The food at the restaurant hotel was very tasteful. I will really recommend this hotel to my office mates here in Manila.

This hotel has everything right for a hotel between 3 to 4 star. Breakfast buffet, buffet and a la carte are all well above standard. Competent staff, clean rooms and good security. Hotel is well placed downtown. Pool area nice and clean. I had some trouble getting a really cold beer, but after getting the staff to put a stock... More

My stay there was for 3 days and I really enjoyed it. Executive rooms are quite spacious with sufficient lights. Welcome was great with a surprise fruit basket and drinks. Buffet breakfast is widespread with live counters around. Staff is well mannered as well.

I had some concerns when booking this since when going to Davao, the best hotels in mind are either Seda or Radisson (or before, Apo View). Being our first time to stay there, we were at least glad it's an actual hotel, with bellhops and a reception, function rooms (seems to be rather popular for events) and a buffet breakfast.... More

Checked in here with workmates last November as it was our official accommodation for our conference. I was excited at first since this hotel is among the more known hotels in Davao City since the 90s. The room that we had accommodates 4 persons and I found it quaint. However, a lot of negatives became visible after some time. When... More

Stayed in this hotel last February 2014 when I did some work in Davao. I somehow have a mixed review of good and bad. Here are the reasons why: Hotel: The hotel, in general, is okay. It's kinda old but it could still deliver although the lobby needs to be redesigned (in my opinion). The furniture used are outdated and... More

Buffet breakfast, Room service, Staff all great. Wifi connection was great but they reset the password and login details each day which meant that you had to see the... More
