I had a chance to stay at this hotel for 2 nights as my sister in law booked it for everyone. My general idea of this hotel was that it was young and fresh as it was just a year and a half but I was totally disappointed with how a year and a half hotel would look now, it actually looks 5 years old to me. However, the location of this hotel was perfect as it was walking distance from Penong's, a local restaurant famous in Davao. It is also a mere 5 minute walk to Gaisano mall and a 10 minute ride to Abreeza Mall.
Entering the lobby would give you a feel that this hotel looks young. The waiting area has several sets of sofa which is located at the left side. Further down is the mini restaurant where they hold their free buffet Filipino breakfast. On the right is a grand staircase and a table for its Europcar car rental which by the way is SUPER NOT RECOMMENDED. Behind that is their reception.
We arrived at 11AM. Since the standard rule of checking in is at 2PM, we really had no choice but to have lunch at nearby Penong's. By 1PM, the girl was kind enough to offer us a room. They have 4 elevators which is good for a provincial hotel. We were assigned at room 515 which is at the 5th floor. They also have their mini indoor pool and jacuzzi in this floor. I entered the room and just left my things because I was in a hurry. When i went back to retire, That's the time I checked my room. The room has an aircon which is located at the corner awkwardly and when I was about to charge my Iphone, there I saw their walls filled with thick dust and stains which was unacceptable for me. I immediately called the reception and they instructed me to call the housekeeping myself which was again a no-no. I requested to talk to the manager and he immediately went up to check. He agreed and apologized and after a few minutes, he upgraded us to a junior suite which I think was the right thing to do.
We transferred to room 520. Room was huge with a sofa and a bigger bathroom and a cold aircondition. 1 king size bed setup but I requested for a mattress for my daughter. We were able to sleep at 12 because of the hassle.
The next day, I woke up early because of the water dripping noise fro the aircon. This was irritating but I didn't complain anymore.
In general, hotel could have passed if the layout of each room was better and of course, cleaner. I will definitely not stay here again. I would rather stay at the bit more expensive hotel just a few blocks down.
