The Tin Hat Boutique Hotel is the perfect place for travelers who are on a budget but who don't want to sacrifice nice amenities and location. The hotel is fairly centrally located within the city and traveling to and from most of the sights is pretty easy. Many of the taxi drivers aren't aware of the hotel, so it is advisable to write down the actual address to give to them, especially if you don't speak Tagalog or Visayan. Most taxi rides won't cost more than around P100 to P150 (US $2.50 to $3). The taxi drivers here in Davao are known for their honesty so you don't have to worry about getting gouged.
The rooms are small but extremely comfortable and modern. There's free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and cable TV with brand new flat screen TV's. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom and shower were adequate. The water pressure is really good too which, if you've traveled here in the Philippines before, you know can sometimes be a problem even in the best hotels.
The food is OK but the menu isn't that extensive but I'd recommend at least having the free breakfast that comes with the price of the room. Be advised that this is a Muslim owned hotel so there is no pork or alcohol available anywhere inside.
If you book online, you can find single rooms for around P1000 (roughly US $23) a night. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who needs a great place to stay for a great place. We'll definitely be returning here on our next trip to Davao.
