“Very nice place with great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We got our money's worth and more. We stayed for 7 nights. Occupied the dorm for 4 people with TV on the 6th floor. It's a great place to stay. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are cleaned everyday. Oh, and our room had high speed Wi-fi. :) Highly recommended.

Room Tip: When booking, ask for a room with a view. I would also suggest getting a room that's not near th...

If you looking for a cheap place to stay downtown with a nice room then this is the place. I picked once of the nicer rooms with the floor to ceiling windows on a high floor with a great view. The only thing I hate about this hotel is the walls are paper thin and I can hear EVERYTHING in the rooms next to me...I don't mind that but when the guy in the next room starts sing Madonna songs and 3am with the tv on loud three nights in a row AFTER you have complained at the front desk then it is time to change hotels.

My new rule when checking rooms now is knock on the walls to make sure they are concrete which is about 90% of PI hotels.

As mentioned there are 3 floors of rooms and its kind of nice to just get in the elevator and head up to your floor without going past the front desk. Breakfast
is included with the higher priced rooms and is ok with a cafeteria style eating area.

Staff was very nice and tried to help me move to a few different rooms but its just too noisy for me with the thin walls and slamming doors...I moved to a real hotel in Ecoland (Home Crest Residences) for about the same price and I can walk to SM City.

If you are looking for budget place in downtown area and don't mind a little noise then go for it...me? Im too old for a dormitel and need a real hotel room I guess!

Room Tip: Don't shop at the expensive store in the lobby area, head downstairs to rose pharmacy on the bot...

Me and my friends stayed here last November for our Mt. Apo trip and I would say the rooms are very clean and spacious with our own bathroom! The staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating, they helped us a lot in our preparations for our trip, they even let us use their kitchen so we could cook our food!In terms of location, the hotel is near everywhere (hospital, mall, park, transpo area,atm,pharmacy). Another thing that I'm impressed of is their common area bec. it feels cozy and I really felt relaxed after an epic adventure (because of the cable TV + massage sit + airconditioned room combo!) Highly recommended!:)

Me and my group are called the Bakasyonista Club10 who traveled from Cotabato City to Davao City for almost five hours. Of course, we were all exhausted the time we reached Green Windows due to rough, bumpy roads as well as the not so good weather wherein nobody is excused to feel the heat and humid air since it's summer time already. The security guard saw as first, then the bell boy helped us unload our things from the van and he placed it in the luggage cart, We were accompanied in the elevator and front desk in the 5th floor of the hotel. The staff are accommodating and hospitable. We checked-in in a dormitory room which can accommodate a group of 6 persons. Since we are 10 in the group, we got two rooms. The room is tidy, comfortable, has a big mirror on the wall, an airconditioned unit (split type) and a flat LCD tv with 140 cable channels in it. The comfort is big and clean. The only thing not included in this hotel is the towel. We did not bring our own towel because we are expecting that there are towels in the hotel. When I asked the room service they told me that towels are for rent. Aside from the amount of the towel to be rented, there is an additional payment for deposit. In general, i like the hotel because it is affordable, clean and comfortable. It has a cozy lounge, cafeteria, mini-grocery and a free wifi access in each room. Most of all, the hotel is located near the famous Davao Doctor's Hospital, Davao Doctors College and other establishments such as Mandarin Tea Garden, KFC, Gaisano South Citimall (JS Ilustre) and People's Park.

Room Tip: Choose a room for backpackers if you travel in groups.

My family enjoyed our stay in Davao particularly in Green Windows. Room was nice and comfortable. It also has wifi which is good. People at the reception can be more helpful. Since there are lots of tourist destinations in Davao, it would help if they are aware of the contact numbers so it'll be easier if their guest asks them something about it. Other employees are commendable (guards, housekeeping, etc). I would definitely go back and recommend this place to friends and family.

Room Tip: 6th floor rooms have wifi.
