“Perfect Hotel for Couples”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

One thing I like about White Mansion is its great staff. First I sent them an email inquiring about reservation, and I was assisted very well. I love to cook and I was so delighted to see that it has complete kitchen amenities. The place is great if you want solitude amidst the buzzing city life of Davao. However the location of the hotel is far from the malls and tourist spots. A lift is needed too especially if you are carrying heavy items. Other than that, our stay there was perfect and would be more than happy to stay there again.

Location is within the city but quiet. Easy access to public transportation. The unit is clean and well kept. All the staff are friendly, very helpful and fluent in English. We always cooked our breakfast and sometimes, dinner when we didn't feel like going out. After a long day of sight seeing, it was a relief to "come home" to this place. I would always recommend White Mansion to my friends. Its a home, away from home.

For me and my husband, this is not our first time to stay here. We decided to return this November for a tour with the family and to celebrate our wedding. The staff Ayen who took my reservation, lyn and sister who never failed amazed us with their politeness and speedy action, donna with her professionalism and knowledge with any request and queries we ask and the guards. Everyone have been so warm and professional. They are so attentive and trying to cater all our needs and request. The rooms is so comfortable, clean, spacious, with its own kitchen, lounge and individual rooms. Its affordable and worth what you paid for. Definitely we will comeback.

Room Tip: Maybe a lift.. so inconvenient especially you're carrying a lot of stuff. However, the guard and...

Its location makes it a perfect retreat from the busy city. Its actually located just within the city but because it is situated inside a quite residential area, you'll come home to a serene and charming abode. They have an interesting menu to order food from but if you want to cook up your own specialty you can absolutely do that as the units have their own cooking facilities.

This dutch owned hotel is located in Rolling Hills, a quiet, lush green residential area in Davao that is not far from Victoria Plaza Mall. We rented an apartment with kitchen for PHP3200/night. The place has everything you need, including satellite TV and free Wifi.

My mother-in-law booked us into this hotel/apartelle for our New Year vacation in Davao. It would normally be out of our accommodation price range (>P3,000/night), but since it was paid for by my MIL, we weren't complaing,lol. Our unit was on the 3rd floor, a bit of a climb the 1st time, with luggage, but we got used to it after a few days. There's a sitting room with huge bay windows when you enter the unit. It comes with a flat-screen tv with cable and even a dvd player, with lots of seating for just lounging or even entertaining a few visitors. There's a tiny dining table with 4 chairs in one corner nearest to the kitchen. Appliances included were a refrigerator, gas stove/oven, toaster, rice cooker, water dispenser(although it just had hot and warm water only).We opted to have a [5 gallon?]container of water sent up for P100..quadruple its regular price really, but it was sufficient for the 6 days that we were there. The cupboards and drawers had dishes, bowls, glasses, cups, assorted pots and pans, cutlery, ladles, knives, can-openers,etc. There are 2 bedrooms: a bigger aircon room and a smaller non-aircon one, which share 1 big bathroom with a tub. [There's another half-bathroom in the kitchen.] The big bedroom even had a huge armchair, a big desk and office chair, which would be perfect for a person traveling for business, I suppose. But which made for a pretty cramped room if you have luggage and have gone shopping too. Personally, I would have preferred a luggage rack/a chest of drawers and a smaller vanity, which could also double as a laptop table, since free wi-fi is available. The cabinets needed more shelves in them, and they forgot to put in hangers too. The bathroom was spacious, although the water pressure was pretty touch and go while we were there, and the half-bathroom wouldn't flush properly.:There was an aircon in the sitting room, which is charged extra, but the stand fan sufficed while we were hanging out in the living area. I would suggest that they installed windows that can be locked in place in the open position. They kept slamming shut with the breeze. There's a small pool behind the garage, 4ft at the shallow end and 9ft at the deep end, which is a good place to swim off some extra holiday poundage,lol!
This apartelle is some 50-70ms away from the main road (Bacaca Rd). but it's just a short walk to public transportation. You can flag down either motorized pedicabs. jeepneys, or taxis and they'll bring you to the nearby malls (Abreeza, Victoria Plaza, Gaisano Mall) in minutes. The caretakers and cleaning ladies were pleasant and accommodating, so it was easy to leave all the unused groceries, vegetables, condiments, and rice that we had bought.
Oh, they should also install door locks that doesn't require the key to lock up. And fix the chain-lock too.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the 2nd floor if you have young children or elderly in your group.
