I spent just one night there. Decent room with good size. New bathroom. Clean. Basic breakfast, they can improve it. Is not a big yes and not a big no. There are better places in Davao but more expensive.

The hotel was okay...their staff was so patient, courteous and ready to assist with your needs from the receptionists to the waiters/waitresses to the bellboys...they were all great. Thought the swimming pool area needs some refurbishing...looks old... The place was nearby to the 'Bangkerohan'...their fruit market....and to the Catholic church since we were there on Sunday. And for the other... More

A great hotel in the heart of Davao. Service was always accommodating. Rooms were comfortable, And security was great. A few minutes walk to court house, and goverment square. One more important fact. They have a smoking area in parking lot. Davao is a non smoking city. Illegal to smoke anywhere outdoors in public. This is just one of a... More

This is an aging hotel, one of the older ones in Davao City. It's downtown, near City Hall. There's a timeless appeal to it, and what I like about old hotels is the size. The overall value is great - you get free round-trip airport shuttles and buffet breakfasts with your room. The lobby space is big, with an equally... More

A rather nice hotel in a good location. Great food, nice comfortable rooms and a friendly staff. The location is great with lots to do around. This is one of only 2 hotels in Davao that I stay. Very safe

Menseng Hotel is quite old but they somehow retain the class and elegance of the place. It's function rooms are spacious and conducive for learning. The hotel serves buffet meals and snacks and am quite impressed and very much filled with their sumptuous dishes! They provide a lot of varieties at a very affordable price. The rooms are clean and... More

A huge good hotel. We held an event there for 300 people. All went well. Food and service was good. Better than the food served in restaurant. Hotel rooms were clean and large. Good air-con. TV good. Internet good for Philippines. Front desk girls were cute and professional :) Pool was good but there was not much sun. Overall, a... More

Good Chinese buffet. Value for money. Decent rooms with some fixtures in the bathroom showing need of repair. Located at the center of Davao. A favorite of groups for workshops. TV is old. No wifi, uses wires to connect. Very poor seats in the room to use for work. Very friendly staff.

Grand Menseng is one of the oldest hotel in Davao. This may explain why their furnishings are not as glamorous as new hotels we have now in town. However, old it may be, but it has comfortable and clean rooms. The hotel is located in the heart of the city, so it is indeed at the center of a very... More

The Buffet for breakfast was ok, nothing special. Rooms were fairly clean, but no safe. Furnishings rather old. Lobby makes a nice impression, but the rooms don't live up to that promise. Only smoking area is out by the pool. Restaurant food was plain and uninspired. I'll be trying someplace else when I go back.
