Going to Abreeza mall is a piece of cake, you’ll just have to walk for about 5 minutes to get there.

    A home away from home”
    Frontage is not attractive but I was surprised when I enter the hotel's premise. Very homey and all staffs are friendly. WiFi is very strong in all floors and borrowing utensils for food bought outside is no problem at all! I will definitely make this my official home when in Davao at my expense because it is very cheap!

    Best to explore other options for accommodation instead of staying in this new hostel in Davao. With its 3-star classification, facilities are not at par with the standards it promises: internet connection is unreliable inside the room. Guests stay at the lobby in order to access a supposedly stable connection, which proved to be another disappointment. The spacious lobby is underutilized with its limited furniture or spaces where guests could work or have coffee or drinks. No elevator, which presents another huge issue for guests with specific requirements for access. No designated smoking area. Centrally located along a busy road, so if you are sensitive to noise, best to book other hostels.

    Nice hotel with friendly staff, shocking Wi-Fi you will need 4g for internet or go down to the lobby to use Wi-Fi, they only need a couple of Wi-Fi extenders to stop this problem, also no fridge in the room. A shame, if they sorted these issues it would be so much better.

    beautifully clean and met our needs except outside window had no mesh nor security stays on it so couldn't leave open therefore left bathroom porthole open to gain "fresh air" only to find central atrium amplified all the local road noise and banging doors within the hotel woke us up very early. Shame for this to detract from an otherwise lovely spot!

    NOT for elderly, PLM, guest with car, guests who wants to be online, who wants privacy.”
    The facade is a row of stalls and inconspicuous where the front desk was. The guard, did not budge a bit when I came in, not even a simple greet. The front desk staff "joked" that it was not the font desk of the hotel, when i asked. Ha ha. We traveled by car. I was told to park in front of the building (there are three weeny slots). Is it safe, I asked? "Park at your risk!" was the answer. Our room's on the third floor, and there is no elevator! We have to leave some stuff at the front desk, it's struggle going up the narrow stairs. Going up, there's a sign that says about getting fit, burning calories, etc. Please tell that to a Person with Limited Mobility, such as myself. The room got no wi-fi access. We tried countless times until check out time. The room featured floor level "glass peeping holes" the size of carry on luggage. The eerie feel that somebody is watching haunted us the whole time. Am a guest lost forever, so is with my charger!

    The wifi is not working inside the room. When I asked for assistance from the staff, she told me just go outside your room and work from there. There is no bath rug so I also asked. The staff gave me a really worn out rug most likely used already. For the toiletries, they only provide soap. Staffs are sleeping at night even the guard.

    I was greeted by a very unpleasant staff when I checked in. Room 302, toilet does not flush!”
    When I checked in at 10am, earlier than the check-in time, a very unhappy face receptionist is the one to attend to me. She asked me if I want to check-in early , and I said yes. That is all she asked me. She told me to wait for 20 minutes. She never told me the room is ready after 45 minutes. She forgot I was waiting there. I stood up and asked if my room is ready, she said yes. Then I went to pay for the bill and she said that there is an early check-in fee. I told her that she never mentioned this to me at all. With an aggressive voice and angry face, she insisted to me that she had told me there is a fee. I told her that she never told me about that. With the help of another receptionist which was very nice to me, she told me I can leave my baggage and come back on the check in time if I want. She should be the only receptionist there. They didn't need the other receptionist with a very bad attitude to represent their hotel. Also, beware! Room 302, the toilet does not flush.

    At first you don't a any clue at all what to expect from this hotel except for its name Urban Zen. But one you got in especially in the lobby, you will feel the relaxing aura of the place. It has the vibe of modern zen with its architecture and the koi pond. I had no complain with the staff. They assist and answer any queries. Location is near to the malls and accessible to any place of interest in the city esp. in the uptown part. Bathroom amenities ok with hot and cold shower. I will definitely recommend this hotel.

They should upgrade or lower their price.

    Pros: 15 min walk to Abreeza or Victoria Mall DIY Laundry and Cafeteria just outside the Hotel. Very Quiet Place considering it is near the national road. Working heater and good airconditioner. Fast Wifi but it doesn't reach the rooms. You have to go outside the room to get a good wifi signal. Cons Public transpo specially the tricycle ia not always available. As for the jeepney, waiting time can be around 5 mins or more. No toiletries. Not much of service unless you ask or request. Most of the staff are friendly and Accomodating. Overall, this is a good hotel if you're on a budget. What we like the most is the DIY laundry shop and the sari sari stores just outside the hotel.

But anyway the room was spacious, clean and minimal decors which is good for the eyes. It's a good price for a very comfortable room.

    Consider this hotel”
    The staff here are easy to deal with especially when I asked for a room change. The hotel has three floors with no elevator. They first gave me a room at the 3rd floor. On any other day, I would be ok with that but my calves have been hurting for the past few days. The front desk lady initially told me there was no more available room at the 1st and 2nd floor. So I already checked at the 3rd floor room and settled down. When I went down for dinner at a nearby mall and asked again if they had another room, however, the front desk acquiesced and transferred me to a very convenient room at the 1st floor. The security guard helped bring my things down to the new room. So overall good customer service on their end. Pros: Nice staff, 1km away from Abreeza Mall, working AC, hot shower and TV, good-sized room and CR, competitive price Cons: No elevator (not PWD friendly), no breakfast and resto in hotel, window faces a wall
