This could fall under the category of a lodging house, instead. Rooms are old and would need renovation. I understand why they wanted to reinforce a no-food/drink policy in the room because it seems there are ants already living in the room. Even without food and drinks, they are on the table. Sheets and towels are no longer white. Limited cable channels. Typical for a lodging house, but not for a 'hotel. One strong push at the door and it immediately opens even when locked. I appreciate the friendliness of the staff. But I don't appreciate the overpriced menu at their restaurant and asking us to pay P25 for a cup of hot water. Wi-fi signal is strong.

The hotel was located in downtown Davao. It was easy to locate and it was convenient to take the public transportation to go around downtown Davao. The hotel had modest amenities. It was clean and the aircon was cool. The buffet breakfast was ok but travellers can opt to take his/her breakfast outside the hotel. The hotel is located right smack in the Davao Night Market with restaurants (big and small) dotting both sides of the street.

The cost was fair and the location was good. The halls can be very noisy and the rooms need a renovation. For breakfast we were only allowed certain meals. The live music at dinner was nice , but very loud.

Well maintained small hotel that is located in the heart of Davao city. Night market is open every night starting from 6pm onwards. And it’s just a few step outside the hotel. Room was good but it need but it need additional facilities like sleepers, bathrobe, and hair dryer. It was tidy and everything you can see inside just basic. Bathroom need a good scrub. When it come to foods, it’s wast disgusting. No taste at all specially their omelette. and they serve you just a toast bread, no butter or nothing. Chef need more training on how to cook breakfast. But it’s just a cheap hotel, you will got What you paid for.

I stayed in the hotel with my family. The location is very ideal and great. It is few walks away from the night market. The food was okay too. The room given to us very clean and comfortable. We will stay again in this hotel once we return back to Davao.
