I visited the hotel some months ago but there was not yet a review so i post now…
I arrived from Singapore to Davao (very small airport indeed!!) , I passed immigration very quickly (they turned on the lights just for us!!) I changed money in the airport and I took a taxi to the city. The place is not close to the airport but with taxi is very accessible. It is very close to the sea and in some minutes of taxi you can reach the harbor (I will tell you after the reason..) The place was difficult to fin even for the taxi driver and this “difficultness” repeated every time I took a taxi but is a minor thing.. The area is not quite nice but is very calm and I was never in danger. It was quite strange the fact that apparently I was the only tourist on the island, the only European and probably the only Italian ever been to davao! Everybody was always looking at me!! The room is very small and there is a heat problem in the night but if you go to davao you must adapt.. In the morning the best choice is to take the boat from the harbor and go to the island in front of Davao (I forgot the name..) .. it is an oasis of peace and tranquility, full of Filipinos families. I was literally “adopted” by a family and they gave me a ride with car , eat with them etc.. The centre is not that much, very packed with traffic. Easily reached next to the hotel various internet centers, two mall (Galvano o gaisano is the name of the chain). So… the hotel is quite Spartan but a very choice for money especially from Singapore (the flights were very expensive!!) .. pick it if you like me are a backpacker and you want tranquility!
