          I make arrangements to be pick up at the airport not done properly. The room was no hot water and the staff needs proper coordination not enough training how to accommodate guests. The pool was not functional and the next room so noisy and also staff not aware of making noise upper level while the guests was resting at 10pm.

          Practical comfort ”
          If you’re after practical comfort, not needing the bells and whistles of five star amenities then Apo View is perfect. It is in the center of Davao City’s “downtown”. It serves good food. Highly accessible. It has seen its glory days but a few touches here and there will greatly improve the look and feel in the rooms. The bed I had was so comfortable, WiFi was working and the TV had the cable channels I needed. Too bad it has no gym and the pool is undergoing renovation.

          The only thing that is good in my stay on this hotel is the friendliness of the waiters in the restaurant. A. Executive suite room got no hot water in the shower. The shower knob looks dirty. It only has a very cold water. B. They dont provide iron in the room to press your clothes. C. The room smells dusty. The aircon is noisy. D. They only accept CASH for deposit.

          Apo view might be an old hotel however our stay was as pleasant as we expected. Checking in and out easily. Breakfast is the best. Although we haven't got the chance to use the pool coz its under maintenance still we love our stay in the hotel.

          Everything is excellent except that the hotel pool was under renovation during our stay. Checking in and out was a breeze, Bellboy was very quick to assist us, The room may be old but it was very clean, I was happy that the hotel take note of specific request for higher floor and huge bed, Buffet breakfast was great with a lot of food to choose from, Really has value for my money and will definitely come back!

          whats good about this hotel is their location but it needs renovation. only 1 elevator is working. the room is a bit old ang the lighting is bad. what really pissed me off is tha staff. they are inefficient. they borrowed my ID for them to photocopy it but didn’t return it after. or maybe forgot to return. when we checked out, the staff still didn’t returned my ID. i only noticed that my ID was missing when i got home. it was such a hassle considering im not from davao. waste of gas & most of all waste of time going back to the hotel. and its my drivers license. i was driving without my license then. thank god i wasnt stopped by a traffic officer.

          Bullet Points of bad experiences : > Purpose of check in was for my kids to swim in the pool, the day before check in, I called to confirm if pool is okay, they said yes, the next day upon check in, they informed us that pool is under maintenance, stay at hotel was wasted. > No Towels & Toiletries available when we entered the room, called to request, assured that they will have it delivered, after 30 minutes call again, none came, after 1 hour I called again and told them that this was my 3rd follow up, they informed me that they will again coordinate with the RA, after 3 hours of waiting towels & toiletries were provided > 3 GIRLS 2X KNOCKED AND RANG THE DOORBELL, THEY SAID THEY WERE LOOKING FOR GUESTS, reported to mgt no idea if acted upon > They allow loud partying in the rooms, we had to suffer sleepless night because some guest were shouting inside their room ( singing happy birthday etc. ), reported, shouting stopped 1AM

          First time in this hotel and definitely my last”
          Based on some reviews I was skeptical to stay here, but in my mind why not give this hotel a benefit of the doubt and try their service for at least one night (BIG MISTAKE). First, I don't know if it has something to do with the age of the hotel but man, the hotel's air-conditioning system really terrible (at least in my room 350). For everyone's info, you cannot see a physical AC unit in this room. Instead, their cooling system is like in the mall where there's an "exhaust thing" in your room but you have your own switch which it doesn't work at all. Yeah sure, you can adjust it but the air temp coming out from the exhaust isn't responding to your desired temp. Second, for a well-established property like this, I was so shocked when I found out there was no bidet. Really? Hot shower barely works too and I was expecting to try their pool but unfortunately, it was under maintenance. Dang! In the end, I immediately check out the next morning.

          Better than the last time, but...”
          Room 405 Three nights stay. I've stayed here in 2005, didn't want to stay after snafu of mini bar charges took place, but heard rooms were updated, here goes. The good: Location, cleanliness, WiFi, breakfast quality and variety, reception and room cleaning staff. The bad: No iron or ironing board in room or from hotel, they have a pressing service for a fee. Although room was updated recently, it lacked AC sockets (2 in main room + 2 in bathroom). Quality of craftsmanship was really poor, bathroom tiles cracked, etc. Upon checking in, was advised that towels were still in dryer, and that we would get them within 1 hour. It took 2, we didn't encounter this again during the stay. Bathroom had a strong almost sewer like stench emanating from drainage, not good. Water pressure was great, shower pressure was marginal, and water kept overflowing into drainage next to toilet, and soaking the floor towel. Room 405 faces the back, next to a school that has plenty of noise early in the morning. The in-between: Pool seemed dirty with visible grime at the bottom of pool. All in all not a bad stay, but some improvement is needed in order for this property to be considered as a strong 3 star. it's a 2.5 in my eyes.
