    Hi. I was in Davao last week (April 13-22, 2009) and saw My Hotel while shopping along San Pedro. That place looks great! It’s so bright and obviously updated. When I saw the hotel, I thought wow this place looks awesome. I didn’t get a chance to go inside as I was in a taxi, but I would like to get pricing information. The hotel’s location to the shopping venues of San Pedro are an added plus. Hope to stay there next year!

    Ive stayed in this hotel last summer and I find it very nice. The room is clean and the room service is great. What surprised me, is that this hotel offers free call to US and Canada. With this, I’ve got to call and talk to my friends and family in US. Nice hotel for the price of PHP1,035 per night. This hotel is absolutely worth more than you paid for.

    I’ve been in Davao quite long time ago to attend some family matters. My cousin choose My Hotel because it is near at the church where my cousin and her bride will take a bow at San Pedro Cathedral. I was so exhausted at that time because of the long trip but I got relief when the staff is accommodating to my need and with a smile of her face. I said to myself, WOW! its nice that there are people taking care of you as if they’ve known you long time ago, like a family member perhaps. I love going back there at Davao where you can stay at nice, clean, safe and accommodating and friendly staff. My hotel is simply the best. thanks guys….

  5. Hi Good Day!

    I just want to give a heads up about the hotel-airport-hotel pick-up or transfer that they do not have that kind of services. What I can suggest, the My Hotel is very much near at the city so you can assure that driver knows the location and the airport also has many taxi cabs around that you can ride in for a 100.00 pesos with a 20-25 minute of travel.

    I hope it helps!
