Royale House Hotel in Davao

During our 3D2N stay in Davao City, we stayed at Royale Pension House which is along C.M. Recto St. near the San Pedro Cathedral and Davao City Hall. It is also walking distance to the People's Park, though we didn't have time to see it. C.M. Recto is a one-way street, so our usual route in going back to the hotel is from San Pedro St. The jeep route no. 4 pass thru C.M. Recto after making rounds in Magsaysay Avenue and Quezon Boulevard. Many other jeepney routes and taxicabs pass the hotel, so transportation is never a problem.

Fastfoods like Chowking and Jollibee are just 5-minute walk through the Rizal Extension. There is also an NCCC Express Supermarket nearby. There is a night market along San Pedro St. if you fancy ukay ukay clothes, streetfoods, and pirated DVDs. The Bankerohan Market is a 5-minute ride on the jeepneys that pass the San Pedro St.

We availed their weekend promo of Php 999/night for a room with 3 single beds, inclusive of set breakfast for 3 persons, almost 50% off from their rack rate. They accept credit cards, but the full promo rate we got is applicable only to cash payments. I have to pay a 1-night deposit through their BPI account to get a confirmed reservation, since their rooms get easily filled up.

The amenities are basic, no elevator, yet the furnitures and fixtures are above average and well maintained, for a pension house. Breakfast can only be availed on their coffee shop on the ground floor, while they have a bar at the second floor. Staff are all very courteous and helpful. Like most hotels in the city, they don't allow the smelly durian fruit to be brought inside the building.

  1. Hi, Jane. Our room is clean, as well as the public washroom at the lobby. They have a security guard 24 hrs., who checks the guests' bags before they enter the place. A BPI bank is just across the street.

  4. Hi, Sean. We ran out of time to check the People's Park. We just saw its lights on the fountain when we pass it on the road.
