    Classic but needs some modernization”

    Hotel accommodated my request for a bathtub. Location is excellent. Hotel has a classic vibe. Since check-in is a bit late, the hotel should atleast have provisions for a shower and dressing room for clients who fly in early. I flew in from Manila at 8 a.m. and had a hearing at 1:30 p.m. Had a hard time preparing my clothes. Otherwise, good hotel.

    Past Its Iconic Stature”

    With the emergence of many new and modern hotels in the area, Apo View hotel needs to make an overhaul of its room amenities. Despite of the spaciousness of the rooms, the all that are in it need to be replaced with new ones especially the bed, the sheets & the shower room. Plus a new name as there is no longer the view of Mt. Apo bec of the buildings surrounding it.

    Three night vacation”

    Faded Glory.....2 or maybe 3 star hotel with four or five star pretensions. Busy with events, weddings and seminars.....and has grand entrance and lobby but falls flat on its rooms and offerings. Can you believe no hot water ! I asked at reception for it to be checked. No-one came and I waited three hours. After I requested a bucket if hot water to be delivered to my room so I could shower the next morning, a service man came...... after runnng the water fir a lengthy period, he told me to run the bath tap on full for 10 minutes and then to turn on shower.....this produced only very slightly warm water.....and hundreds of gallons of wasted water ! The fridge inside the room was heavily stained....you would not want to put any food item in there. Breakfast was crowded (morning after a wedding) and at 8.15am almost no buffet food left and no table free..... I guess if you catch things right, it could be ok......but it could easily be so very much better.

    Old and pricey”

    I checked in with a double room with to single beds. The room was spacious it was big but, you can see and its very obvious that it is old. The tiles in the bathroom to the interior of the place including the bed frame you can say it is old. The hotel staff were kind and courteous. The check in process was straight forward. There were complimentary coffee in the room but no kettle to boil the water with. The breakfast buffet was pretty basic. I have checked in in a cheaper hotel but with much newer bed frame and mattresses. I will give it 6.5/10.

    Bad experience.”

    We checked in from April 5th to 21st. Hotel rooms at 7th floors are old, noisy and has a foul smell. You can even hear other guests snoring at the other room. Housekeeping are banging doors starting at 6 fuck*ng morning! What's worse is that they kept chit chatting. First room they gave us has no warm water. We requested to be transfer to another room but to no avail, they told us to wait for their engineer which is nowhere to be found. They transfer us the following morning same floor where we also complained about the noise. How the hell housekeeping cleaning and turning on their vacuum cleaner at 7am in the morning were guests are expected to be asleep? Kept knocking doors even we've been yelling that we're inside but still opened the door. They're not even cleaning the rooms, no mopping or vacuuming not even dusting. No refilling of toiletries or changing towels not even toilet floor towels. You have to be careful, bc floor are so slippery. They just fix the bed and that's it. After 4th day We requested another transfer bc we can't get the rest we wanted. They moved us at the 4th floor w/c is a little better. But still housekeeping are worst. Receptionists are stupid. I only remembered one girl who's attentive. The rest of them are just giving you smiles without hearing or understanding what you needed. When we checked in, we notified them about other booking which is made by my husband and we thought the girl who check us in understood it since she photocopied my husband passport as well. But on the 7th day of our stay they called us right when we arrived at our room telling us that we need to check out and it's not our room anymore! Horrible! We're exhausted from a 4 hrs travel and that's what we're getting. Poor customer service! Food are rubbish! Not everything but most of it. There6one waiter there who kept on complaining about Bfast coupon bc we can't present any. Not our problem bc the reception didn't give us any. Some of the waiters are good though.

    Great location and comfortable bed but poor amenities”

    The walls between rooms are thin because one could here conversations from the corridor and next room as well as noise from the closet (eg hangers being fixed, the doors sliding/closing). Only 1 roll of maybe 1-ply tissue paper was provided and housekeeping was hard to reach. It was the reception that facilitated their duties. The hot water in the shower was also not constant. The breakfast area also had poor exhaust so one would leave smelling like food after. There was also no salad the morning we ate so it wasn’t a good spread for anyone who wanted to eat healthy. On the good side, location was great, the bed was comfortable and cozy, and the room was spacious. Even if it was old, it was clean.

    good hotel could do with some updating but good value hotel clean rooms own small garden area to relax also smoking area is here tucked in the corner expect to meet the staff here. The hotel is close by the Peoples park for a nice quiet place to relax in the middle of the Hussle of Davao city plenty of places close by to shop eat and drink including the hotel restaurant offering a good choice of dishes. overall a nice comfortable hotel that's good value and if you like it has casino in the hotel nice bar friendly staff would stay again..

    Practical comfort ”

    If you’re after practical comfort, not needing the bells and whistles of five star amenities then Apo View is perfect. It is in the center of Davao City’s “downtown”. It serves good food. Highly accessible. It has seen its glory days but a few touches here and there will greatly improve the look and feel in the rooms. The bed I had was so comfortable, WiFi was working and the TV had the cable channels I needed. Too bad it has no gym and the pool is undergoing renovation.

    Better than the last time, but...”

    Room 405 Three nights stay. I've stayed here in 2005, didn't want to stay after snafu of mini bar charges took place, but heard rooms were updated, here goes. The good: Location, cleanliness, WiFi, breakfast quality and variety, reception and room cleaning staff. The bad: No iron or ironing board in room or from hotel, they have a pressing service for a fee. Although room was updated recently, it lacked AC sockets (2 in main room + 2 in bathroom). Quality of craftsmanship was really poor, bathroom tiles cracked, etc. Upon checking in, was advised that towels were still in dryer, and that we would get them within 1 hour. It took 2, we didn't encounter this again during the stay. Bathroom had a strong almost sewer like stench emanating from drainage, not good. Water pressure was great, shower pressure was marginal, and water kept overflowing into drainage next to toilet, and soaking the floor towel. Room 405 faces the back, next to a school that has plenty of noise early in the morning. The in-between: Pool seemed dirty with visible grime at the bottom of pool. All in all not a bad stay, but some improvement is needed in order for this property to be considered as a strong 3 star. it's a 2.5 in my eyes.

    Nice affordable hotel with good location”

    Our stay at Apo view hotel is very comfortable one. The hotel is conveniently located at the heart of the city and is very near commercial areas. The breakfast they served is very delicious though there were only 2-3 variety of fruits to choose from. Their servers and hotel crews are very polite and accommodating. We love the spacious rooms, the only problem is that our bathroom does not have a divider in the shower area which results to water flooding whenever we use the shower. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel.
