“Centrally located Davao Hotel aptly described as giving their guest "value for their money."”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Davao City is one of the most peaceful cities in the Philippines. This is partly due to Mayor Duterte's iron-fist and no-nonsense policy against criminality to promote peace & order.

So despite the recent "blast" in Cagayan de Oro and US advisory against travel to Mindanao, we attended a meeting conference in this city.

Metered taxi from the airport cost approximately P170 or US$4. We were assigned a room with street view, relatively large 4x6m with cable TV, Wi-Fi, hot and cold running water and quite air-con.

You work out this concern by asking for room service delivery.

For church goers, there is a church two blocks away, the Our Lady of Fatima Parish Church with daily services at 5:15 PM and almost hourly services on Sunday's. The hotel is located at the corner of two streets so getting a public transportation or taxi is not a problem. We were also able to arrange a late check-out (3:00 PM) despite the fact that the hotel was fully booked.

In general ALU Hotel Davao lives up to its vision as giving its clients "value for their money." I would certainly recommend this hotel for travelers who want affordable, centrally located, hotel with good services.
