“Clean and Basic Dormitel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Clearly, not a hotel. At these rates you really should not expect hotel grade facilities. But for the price, its clean and cool. As for the beddings, you get what you pay for. The cafeteria is equally clean, basic and convenient.

The bunk rooms for large groups are worth it, but the hotel-like rooms are a bit pricey for what they provide.

They need to upgrade on sound proofing their rooms. It depends if you enjoy a certain kind of "entertainment" but in general, its simply bothersome when you hear sounds of ... enjoyment from the next room.

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.

Room Tip: Choose the "deluxe" type of room to get a window view.

I'm not satisfied with the front officer because they are not accommodating when it comes to customer service but aside from that, everything is okay. totally worth it. Their rooms is clean and it's not that big.

We stayed a night at Green Windows. Their family room was not available so our group ended up in a dorm room good for 8.

Place is clean. Has one CR that needed more cleaning. But for the price and for the location, pretty ok.

Oh, the receptionists could do with some training though. Customer service needs improvement.

We booked a standard king room, and it was small but well furnished. The AC was a little noisy, but the room and the bathroom were clean. It was almost perfect, considering our budget, if only we had tea/coffee making facilities. Overall, it's a good place to stay in Davao for a couple of days.
