“A-"Ok hotel"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The hotel is small,ideal for small business functions,there is a cafe available in the lobby so anytime you want to eat,you can go down and just eat plus there is a free wifi in the lobby,despite being small, rooms are very neat,comfort rooms have bath tub and hot water is available. Though,there was no elevator but it was a good exercise to use the stairs. Overall, it was ok.

Room Tip: get the room near the stairs so you can get down easily anytime you like since they don't have a...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

It was a clean nice hotel with great rooms. There was hot water and the furniture is kind of elegant. The breakfast was good as well! The location, if you know how to commute is very convenient as jeepneys ply a route that passes right in front of the hotel. Overall it was really a pleasant experience, after transferring from a very bad hotel nearby at almost the same price (the hotel shall not be named). Will definitely stay here when I go back to Davao!

This is a small hotel w/ a restaurant cafe located on the ground floor. A bit confusing at first. Not your typical hotel.

The rooms are very well decorated. Clean. Nice windows overlooking the street, although there isn't much to see. But they put the effort in.

The bathroom is clean. But no hot water. The water is "warm". I think their heating system is just weak.

The cafe food is ok. But pricey for Davao. The employees are friendly and well trained.

Location wise - poor. Your stuck in the middle of nowhere. No convenient shop to buy food, eat or much.. The street location is fairly old and run down.


The breakfast was weak. They offer a minimal western breakfast with 1 drink ONLY. I expected more. But again, most hotels in Davao seem to serve this minimalistic breakfast of egg/toast/drink combo.. Be thankful it they come out hot. They usually don't. I know that my coffee and eggs came out cold the first time.

Would I stay here again? Probably not. Although the rooms are very nice, I want hot water. And the location isn't convenient for walking and browsing.

Sure you can take a cab anywhere.. but I don't always want to do that. Sometimes I just want to 'walk around'...

I love staying at their Cafe on the ground floor. The food served is really good. Try their Bulad Pasta (dried fish pasta) or for dessert, their fried ice cream :)
Their rooms are brand new, clean and modern. This is a newly constructed hotel. You'll hardly find fault with it.

The hotel is along cabaguio avenue. It's near Philippine Academy of Sakya's Buddhist temple and just 1 jeepney ride (7-10 minutes) to Davao's malls like Gaisano, Abreeza davao, Victoria Plaza. It's also just 1 jeepney ride to damosa gateway (great place for chilling out at night).

Jay, the owner/manager is really helpful. Don't hesitate to ask him or the staff for tips and directions when you're in the city. :)

Have fun!
