This was the newest place I could find online that is in the area of Cosmopolitan Memorial Chapel so we chose this one. I figure, with it being new, I couldn’t go wrong. And I was happy with it. Don’t let its proximity to the memorial chapel stop you. Its not eerie at all and I should know since I get scare easily.
It’s a dormitel as per its name so the people I saw checking in were backpackers as rate is quite cheap. But the amenities were okay. We got the triple standard room at Php 1,748.00 per night and it was quite decent and clean. Typical of a budget hotel but with the advantage that everything in the room is new so it looks fresh and not at all dated. Since we got the “standard” room, we didn’t get a window so if you plan on spending a lot of your time in your room, might be better if you get the “deluxe” kind as this gives you a window so you won’t feel boxed in.
The dormitel is located on the 5th floor of the building so you need to use the elevator which you can find on the right most part of the building. Just look for the glass door. The building also houses a Korean fashion surplus store that sells clothes at Php 250. Quite cheap. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to visit it. But it certainly made me want to go back. For ladies, there’s also a salon on the 2nd floor so you can check it out if you need a fast salon service. Compared to Manila, services in Davao are cheaper so it’s a delight really to visit these places.
If you have a wake that you need to go to at Cosmo, this would be an ideal place to crash in. If not, this is still okay. For female or solo travelers, this is still a safe place to stay in. For business travelers, the word “dormitel” might give your clients an impression that you are on a very tight budget (ha ha). For families, as long your activities are outside the hotel, then this is good especially if you are on a budget. There are no swimming pool, kids area etc to distract them so don’t expect them to be entertained inside the hotel.
