“Good”
Reviewed March 15, 2011

I stayed at Home Crest Residences for three nights in an executive suite, which realistically is only a standard room. This is quite typical of Davao City hotels that regard their rooms as suites even if they are not comprised of multiple rooms, a key feature in a real hotel suite.

Hotel is in a good location, only a stone's throw away from SM City Mall. The room was new and clean, free Wi-Fi facility in the lobby was good, and reception was friendly and efficient. The queen size bed was exceptionally comfortable.

On the downside, toiletries were stocked to a minimal level, no floor/hand towels were provided until housekeeping was asked, coffee/tea sachets were not stocked up, and water in the shower always took so long to heat up, if it gets hot all.

The room had two bedside lamps which both, to my surprise, did not have any bulb. A real nuisance when you read before retiring, only to stand up again to switch off the lights on the wall, just because your bedside lights were non-functional and were merely for display. Just before checking out, there was a heavy downpour and the room was flooded due leakage from the ceiling. This, however, was acted upon promptly.

All in all, it was a good stay although I reckon it is a bit overvalued for what a premium room should offer. Focus on functionality over aesthetics, and attention to detail will go a long way.
