This hotel would have been very good, but one issue blemishes it's comfort record badly. Like other hotels in the Philippines, a key card is required to turn on the power in the room. That wouldn't be a problem, except that the power to the air conditioner is also on this system. The room starts warming up within 5 minutes and is soon very hot and humid. It's a shame, too, because otherwise the hotel is great.
Excellent stay at this hotel, very new and modern. Excellent efficient and friendly staff. Great location next to the mall. Very good buffet breakfast. Only fault is limited room service menu and small pool. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as number one in Davao! I will stay there again without hesitating.
"a house inside a subdivision converted into an inn"
when we entered the house it is hot inside ,but the house boy immediately gave us a room to feel more comfortable; a relatively big room ,clean, with medium sized bed; fixtures and the house itself, are old ,but quite well maintained. Parking area is small.
We had a very nice stay at the hotel, it was quiet, clean and basic amenities were complete. Hotel staff were courteous, attentive and very accommodating to our needs. Hotel facilities were satisfactory. The breakfast buffet was okay. It's a great family hotel.
This Davao Dormitel may be a little pricey compared to others in the area, but it is a very central location with covered parking, elevators, lots of helpful staff and nice big clean rooms. In fact, there are rooms for all price ranges and if you are traveling in a group I think the Dorm-type rooms would be great value. We actually went back the next week to stay again but it was full.
We did not get the famed view of Mt. Apo as that is only available from the higher numbered rooms (11 and up, I think). Our room faced South and was very hot from the sun when we checked in. However the Aircon soon cooled it. There were plenty of power outlets and a good work space for my laptop. The tv worked fine. Nothing much else to say - it's a very 'no frills' place. My favourite things were the brewed coffee available in the canteen and the convenience of stores around and inside the hotel. Value for money is about average.
