            Zen Inspired Hotel”

            At first you don't a any clue at all what to expect from this hotel except for its name Urban Zen. But one you got in especially in the lobby, you will feel the relaxing aura of the place. It has the vibe of modern zen with its architecture and the koi pond. I had no complain with the staff. They assist and answer any queries. Location is near to the malls and accessible to any place of interest in the city esp. in the uptown part. Bathroom amenities ok with hot and cold shower. I will definitely recommend this hotel.

            You get what you pay for.”

            I and my partner stayed for a night only. We got the matrimonial bed since there was a good offer for the room. Matrimonial rooms are regularly priced at around Php 1500+ but we got to book it for only Php 1100. A very good deal. The staff were friendly during our stay. The bathroom was clean and hot and cold shower was available. The location is very strategic since it is located near shopping malls and city centers. We haven't experienced ordering their food since we ate at a local resto outside the hotel. If you are in the city for business purposes, you may need to bring your own wifi device since the wifi is only available at the lobby. Also, phone signals are somewhat low on our room. Having said that, I still recommend the place if you are on a budget and want a clean and peaceful place to stay.

            The best Newer Hotel for the money you will ever pay in Davao City!”

            Stayed at this hotel because of the recommendation by the soon to be and now, bride. Not only us, but much of the wedding party stayed at this hotel too. Not been in a hotel this new and spacious inside for such a low price. There is a large atrium/courtyard inside the center of this hotel with a fish pond. It was taken advantage of by the wedding party for pictures. We stayed on the first floor. The room size was large and the air conditioner was new. The air temperature could be controlled very well to our comfort. The staff are very attentive and will help you if asked. About the location, this is a few steps from a "cafe" and, most import, a laundry service and machine business! The best amenity of this hotel would be located so close to a laundry service business! We stayed 6 days and must have used it 3 times! Up the block and past the traffic light on the right is a 24 hour general store with a drug store inside! Malls are within a 70 PHP Taxi ride.

            Very eco friendly hotel”

            Upon late arrival at the hotel, the sound of the flowing water from the mini pond with huge koi fishes welcomed us. It was so relaxing. The hotel staffs were so accommodating, assisted us as soon as we stepped out the cab. Kulang na lng red carpet pagwelcome samin. As an eco friendly hotel, as expected, they do not have elevators, we were forced to go up to the 3rd floor where our room was located. But its okay, just seeing the writings on the wall beside the stairs saying how beneficial using the stairs are, it will surely make you want to climb the stairs than take the elevators. Haha. Location wise, i think it is convenient. Aside from there is a massage place just across the street which you can visit after a tiring day of gala, there is also a cute and fancy resto outside the hotel. Aside from the rainwater which went inside our room from the window because it was raining so hard on the night of our stay, everything’s perfect!

            My room was okay for a solo traveller. I attended a seminar so I didn't stay much in the room. WiFi isn't accessible from inside the room so you need to go the lobby to get better access. Airconditioning was good, worked well. Bathroom is adequate but only provided towel and soap; there weren't much toiletries. I wasn't able to report that the drainage from the shower worked really really slow. And also when I opened the shower there were these little worms that came out. And there were ants that I didn't know where they came from and I didn't have any food with me in the room. There was no window in my room so I wasn't able to tell what was happening outside. Overall, I was okay with my stay despite the insects, I stayed just to sleep and bathe. The lobby was very spacious with a small pond to add to the "zen" vibe. I just hope they would do something about the insects.

            Consider this hotel”

            The staff here are easy to deal with especially when I asked for a room change. The hotel has three floors with no elevator. They first gave me a room at the 3rd floor. On any other day, I would be ok with that but my calves have been hurting for the past few days. The front desk lady initially told me there was no more available room at the 1st and 2nd floor. So I already checked at the 3rd floor room and settled down. When I went down for dinner at a nearby mall and asked again if they had another room, however, the front desk acquiesced and transferred me to a very convenient room at the 1st floor. The security guard helped bring my things down to the new room. So overall good customer service on their end. Pros: Nice staff, 1km away from Abreeza Mall, working AC, hot shower and TV, good-sized room and CR, competitive price Cons: No elevator (not PWD friendly), no breakfast and resto in hotel, window faces a wall

            Rooms are clean. Wide rooms for the price. Ok na sana lahat except sa WIFI connection which is yun ang pinakaimportante sa amin coz may work si hubby sa gabi and thats what he needs, unfortunately mahina connection so he was not able to work dat night. Pero overall ok ang stay. Value for money na xa. Within the city proper lang location.

            Frontage is not attractive but I was surprised when I enter the hotel's premise. Very homey and all staffs are friendly. WiFi is very strong in all floors and borrowing utensils for food bought outside is no problem at all! I will definitely make this my official home when in Davao at my expense because it is very cheap!

            It 's hotel with no food”

            It's a hotel with no food. Isn't that a requirement of any hotel? Even motel have food to offer. No restaurant, no cafes, no room service. Their staff though were very accommodating, courteus and efficient. I asked a favor for their room boy to find an eatery nearby and look food for my breakfast because I was so starving at 9am. And he willingly obliged, ashamed of their own establishment for such an absence of a basic requirement. There was none good for me. They connected me to Mcdonalds and and Jollibee but I am allergic to chicken and beef. And small eateries in the vicinity were closed gor the holidays. So before I'd die, i packed my luggages back and tranferred to a real hotel. I still had two days of reservation but I did not think I would last another day there. Nor did they offer to return it. Is it considered forfeited since the hotel was the one who did not fulfill the basic expectation? Agoda, please advise. It is a small amount but it is the principle of it. Thanks.

            Clean bed and bath. Hot shower. Good AC and TV. WiFi was too slow, but when on-the-go, mobile data is good and fast enough. No free toiletries, but I always bring my own, no big deal. Only a handful of parking spots, empty during school/office hours. Super friendly staff. Abreeza nearby, too hot to walk though. Sikad, jeeps and taxis pass by. Overall, a simple and cozy stay.

            Nice place if not on a tight budget.”

            Walking distance from Abreeza Mall. For most tourist sites, you'll have to commute/ride. Staff are attentive, polite, professional. Room is spacious, clean, shower/toilet as well. Aircon can be controlled to preferred temperature. This might be pricey from what I usually book as a solo traveler, but it's worth it. And the zen area in the lobby with the koi pond, I love it :)

            On my arrival they upgraded my room for free, they allowed me to cancel my last day without charging me when I booked online. I called the agoda, agoda called the hotel to confirm and my money was going to get refunded. If I ever come back to this area, there is no doubt this hotel is at the very top on my list. Thank you
