Affordable accommodation
1. Affordable 2. Location 3. Staff
North Zen Basic Spaces is centrally located in Davao City. All city attractions and malls are just minutes away. One of the best reason why to stay in this hotel. From Sasa to Lanang to Aldevinco to SM City. North Zen Basic Spaces is also a few kilometers away from Sta. Ana port. The hotel also has a free WIFI accessible in each floor.

Budget hotel
Fast check in check out. Helpful staff. Comfortable room
We were given a room under the stairs so there were no windows on it. And there were noisy people during the night which made it difficult to sleep. The hotel is a walk up type. I would have preferred to stay at the upper floors even if that would mean walking up a flight of stairs.Maybe that would have lessened the noise and it would have had a better view and it would have made my stay there better. The staff were very helpful tho. There was a restaurant in front where you could order food.

comfortable and relaxing place
1. Floor Lobby 2. WiFi 3. Nice Staff
The Staff are great and very accommodating. If your checking out and will be somewhere else in Davao for a day or couple of days, perhaps in Samal Island, you can actually leave some of your things in the hotel for safe keeping, just be sure you'll be checking in at least a day right after. I stayed at the second floor, and the lobby there have table and chairs where guest can entertain guests, or take some snacks, or for lounging. WiFi is free. The hotel is also very much accessible and near/nearer to all malls than most hotels. From SM City in Ecoland up to SM Lanang. It is also near the Sta. Ana wharf. For the budget traveler, take a jeep when going to Sasa Wharf or Malls, which are mostly located along JP Laurel.

clean room. nice staff. nice location.
durian is a delicacy in davao and the hotel don't seem to prohibit their guests from eating durian inside the room. the guests before us ate durian and the smell stayed in our room, we wanted to be transferred but there were no more vacancies. but all in all, sans the durian smell, it's a clean and decent budget hotel.

wonderfully relaxed
location. comfort, helpful and attentive staff
Chosen for location, proximity to airport and city centre. Experience in such environments made us choose the location in case of heavy traffic and the need to get back to the airport in time. The city centre is within reach by taxi in a few minutes. Shopping in Malls and local shops. Our room was adequate for our needs though a bit tight. Clean and modern. Room service superb. Staff helpful and friendly. Aircondition good. Bathroom and toilet also a bit tight. We would come back again when we next come to Davao.

Easy access to public transportation
Spacious lobby, central location, fair price
I stayed there for 2 days and I enjoyed my stay because it is very accessible to public transportation. The room was spacious with 2 single beds but the bathroom was tight. They should provide sheets aside from blanket
