    Good value for money”

    The hotel is relatively cheaper than others. Though I was not really able to get around except to take a taxi to and from my conference venue, it seemed to be in a good location based on the map, to nearby malls. It was easy and quite fast to have the guard flag a taxi.

    After a very disappointing stay in another Davao hotel, North Zen is a good "redemption". Room on Agoda photo is same with actual room, all staff were accommodating and the rooms are clean. Wi-fi is also available.

    Great place”

    Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Room is not that big but enough to for a night stay. Food, kinda disappointed since it took too long to serve and serving was small. If you want to eat somewhere, there are restaurants, cafes near the area, you can take a tricycle or walk around. Signal on our room was weak, so if you want to have a good signal on your mobile and internet, ask for a room near the road (i think it will be better, haven't tried staying near). Location to other places like malls may be far from the hotel. But still worth it.

    Of all the hotels I've been in, this is my favorite. You call the restaurant from your room and Wi-Fi works most of the time in the common areas. The food is very cheap. Clean rooms which is rare in the Philippines. Hot water.

    Slow wifi connection. We weren't able to use wifi during our entire 3-day stay. Our room was facing the sunlight so it's better if they use thick and heavy curtains to dim the room. Apart from these, everything went fine. Receptionists were very helpful in giving us directions around the city and the room was clean.

    I booked this hotel for my father because he needed to be in Davao City the night before his flight. He said the hotel is conveniently located at downtown area and have an easy access for taxi. He likes the hotel and would choose the same hotel when he will come back to Davao.

    Acceptable facilities for a no frills hotel. I like the minimalist and green approach. Ideal for those who just needs to book for a place where they can rest or sleep. AC was good, low cool is still cold.

    it was awesome...upon check in, i requested for a room in the ground floor, and reminded them of my last stay with them....where i was placed in the 3rd floor, then while having my shower the water went off and have to finish my bath in the linen room.... the girl on duty was very quick on responding by upgrading us to deluxe twin from a standard twin.....and im very thankful for such a sweet gesture. the uupgrade made our stay more comfortable.

    it was okay, i arrived in the evening, from the airport i went straight to sm lanang. when i reached the hotel, i got room 313 and to my dismay - there were no elevators. thought of it as an opportunity to exercise instead. while taking a shower, the water went off, i called the front desk and somebody came to check it.... but the water never returned... so he asked me if its alright to finish taking a bath in room 319, the linen room.... do i have a choice? than going out with soap suds in my head.

    Its cheap, clean and very convenient.

    The best thing about this hotel is that it's very accessible to malls, restaurants and pubs. They have a simple room but with clean and comfortable bed. You can smell the good scent of the fresh towels and linens. Breakfast is simple and limited but you can go to other restaurants nearby. This hotel is recommended specially to the budget travelers.

    A New Hotel located at the heart of Davao City. ”

    This hotel is cheap, clean and convenient. The price of the hotel speaks for it's self. It's very clean and neat. It's a new hotel but most of the taxi drivers know the place.

    I had a good stay with this hotel. The only problem for me is the breakfast, they only have a 100 pesos worth of voucher, with the menu given two me, I only have 2 options to choose from. You need to pay extra if you order a meal that is more than 100 pesos.

    Location, Affordable and Clean

    Our stay was comfortable. This hotel is located in the city central where accessible to transportation and near to the Malls and restaurant. At nighttime the street was also quiet. Only thing they don't have tables in the room, so if you wish to eat you would go to their lobby where there are 2 tables available in each floor. Wifi also available in the lobby of each floor. Generally I would still prefer to stay again in this hotel when I go back to Davao.
