“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Hotel is strategically located at downtown area of Davao city. Very nice facilities & room. Seems well maintained. Easy check in and out. Just had a minor incident about the hair blower that was not working. It was, however, replaced immediately upon advice. Would recommend this hotel for business or family trips.

Stayed here for 2 nights, reception was kind enough to give me a room upon early check in since i flew in at around 7am. Hotel is beginning to show age but management does its share of renovations. Price is a lot cheaper vs nearby marco polo. Wasn't able to try breakfast but there are a lot of restaurants nearby. Transportation is easy, guards at front door ready to hail cabs as needed. Frot desk personnel were ok

Hotel Mandaya Hotel in Davao is reasonably priced and located in the heart of the city. The hotel has been in existence for sometime and it has been renovated. The hotel is well kept, the room is neat, the bed sheets and towel are clean. The room has bedside table, hot pot with complementary coffee and two bottles of bottled water, complementary toiletries, flat screen and cable TV. The front desk staffs are courteous and helpful. The breakfast is fine, enough to get you started in the morning.

Room Tip: The rooms in the newer wind should be better.

The hotel has won for us through good service and location. Unfortunately, the prices in recent years, attracted too much. The hotel offers a free service to the airport and pick you from there too late in the evening.

I have experienced best customer service ever in this hotel. The staffs were very courteous. Junior Suite room is very sophisticated. The food in the restaurant is very impressive. Will be back here soon... being a long staying guest.

Room Tip: Food is very delicious.
