Our group stayed in GV Tower Hotel for 3 nights. We booked a Room good for 8 pax at Php2400 plus an extra bed for Php375. The room is located at the 5th floor and to get there, we had to ride the elevator up to the 6th floor and go down the stairs to reach the 5th floor (yes, no elevator passing the 5th floor). The room had a low ceiling but apart from that, it was averagely good. It had 8 single beds plus 1 extra foam and sheets, 2 comfort rooms, 4 cabinets, free towels, bath soaps, and toilet paper, aircondition, cable tv, and a hot and cold shower. Out from my experience in GV Hotel in Davao - no extra outlets available in the rooms -I brought an extension wire just to make sure. True enough, only 1 outlet was available and only 2 persons can get to use it at one given time.
Food chains were just walking distances from the hotel - McDonald's and Jollibee.
We never encountered any blunder from the hotel except for one thing - upon check out - where we were asked to pay Php250 for a stained towel! Now where did it come from when I was sitting across the reception desk waiting for the receptionist to advise that the room was already checked and we were good to go? I did not see anyone of their staff coming in from the 5th floor and bringing with them a stained towel. The receptionist insisted that the towel came from our room and we had to pay the corresponding price. Given that we were at a race against time and we might be late for our flight, so we paid. I just gave them the benefit of the doubt because we did not get to fully check our room before leaving it.
So dear travellers - be warned - do double check your rooms upon check out. Best that you stay there until the staff gets the room fully checked to avoid these circumstances. I did get to read one review from a traveller on his/her experience with the "stained towel" as well. I did not expect it would also happen to me.
Apart from that, the place is good to stay only when you plan to sleep there for the night and loiter the whole day. It's affordable especially for big groups.
