You are choosing this hotel for the price...
The Staff, The Staff & The Staff
It was great.. You choose this hotel for the price but you stay for the attentive and professional staff... It was noisy but its an open air hotel and its down town, what do you expect? The bed was HUGE and took up 80% of the room but hey it was comfortable and the AC was super cold.. The hotel was always well guarded by security but over all I feel rather safe in Davao more so than Manila because Davao has a no nonsense mayor... If you are on a tight budget then this is your spot..

clean, comfortable bed and close to Abreeza Mall
North Zen hotel is a fairly new and clean hotel. The only down side is the size of their bathroom which is very small.

A good start at North Zen.
The hotel is centrally located. It is near to shopping areas. It has clean rooms.
We enjoyed our stay at North Zen Hotel for 2 nights. But since the rooms are not that large for our family with little children, we moved to another hotel. But for couples, this hotel is more than enough and comfortable.

Near Lapu-Lapu Street and Just Blocks going to Gai
Near the shopping areas, city proper, clean
Except for the rooms being a bit small, this is just right for a couple on a holiday in Davao. It is near one of the larger malls in the city.

basic hotel
reasonable price for rooms. friendly staffs. walking distance to the mall.
Location of this hotel in Davao is not so good to go to someother places. Far from the centre of the city and far from the ferry terminal to the Samal. Room price is reasonable and the room is very basic.
