The "superior" room we were shown was a poorly lit, mildew-infested dungeon on the ground level - damatically over-priced for the quality. The AC was too loud, and it kept us up all night. The blankets were far too small for a couple to share. The staff were unhelpful and inconsiderate. The advertised yoga studio was unavailable throughout our stay....

Good for a few nights, but who should want to stay longer in Davao. Much space in the room. But we got 2 small beds instead of one, but it's too late to ask for a room change. Our fault. Water pressure is high, warm water works. Room is clean, room is big, has cabinets. Reception is friendly. Some things...

The place is basic, worth what you paid for, nothing fancy. Good for a one night stay, not for a staycation; or maybe more than one night if you plan to be out the whole day for tours and just stay at night to sleep. There were ants in the room and the cabinet was dusty. They don't provide soaps/shampoos,...

North Zen is a decent well-maintained budget-mid priced hotel in the heart of Davao City behind G Mall. The owners are hands-on and the staff are helpful. They have a spacious lounge area with natural light and breakfast comes with the room. There are 2 jeeps that ply in front of the hotel that can take you to different areas...

Very simple and affordable hotel. If you are flying solo and is looking for a decent yet affordable hotel, North Zen is the place to be. They also have friendly staff who are all willing to extend help.

I enjoyed staying here. It was modern, clean, and decent price. There wasn't much nightlife around, and you pretty much had to take a taxi if you wanted to go do anything, but I think most of davao was like that. There were a few good places to eat within walking distance, a convenient store 2/3 blocks away, and the...

This hotel will provide you the basic necessities of having a comfortable stay. The place is clean and the rates were affordable. It's close to Gaisano Mall and there are available tricycles and cabs all over the place if you need to wander somewhere else.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Booking process was really easy. Staff actively replies to all my inquiries. It is also a tricycle away from Sta. Ana Wharf where ferries going to Samal Island are located :)

We stayed here last May 2016 and we stayed here for 10days. We booked for a twin bedroom. From the airport its far coz the hotel is near the city center. The staff were friendly and accommodating to our needs. We were assigned in the third floor. The room was small, but the bed and pillow was comfortable (sleep friendly)....
