Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After a hard day work under the hot sun, you deserve a hot shower to relax your tired muscles. This is what this place offered. A sumptuous buffet breakfast that offers a wide selection of good food to start your day at the ground floor surely made me ready for another taxing work ahead. The only neg side is the weak internet and limited tv channels. Overall it still is a 2thumbs up for Apo View.

We arrived at 6 pm and couldn't find parking, so I thought that was the end of my Valentine's Day dinner. Perhaps we should have been warned that there is no valet in this hotel and we could have immediately taken a cab.

Aside from this, the evening went well. We had a reserved table with a name plate with our rose, teddy bear and two glasses of wine. The staff were attentive to our needs.

The food was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the Waldorf Salad (even if they forgot the beets!), the various pates and cheeses and crispy bread wafers, the tempura fish, slow cooked pork and the roasted rack of beef. The beef was exceptional, my complements to the chef. There was so much more on the buffet but I had to select what invited me! The gravy was also exceptional with black olives, cherry tomatoes, and tiny potatoes, Dessert and fruits too were plentiful and the chocolate ones were not sweet and very rich in chocolate. Could it have been Malagos chocolates. I had to pass on the halo-halo even if I was so tempted.

The entertainment, acoustic band and the live singing group , helped make the evening special.

Thank you Apo View for making this a memorable Valentine's Day.

The room was nice but I was a bit disappointed because our reservation was the pool view but we were given a different room and the air con had some issues on our 2nd day it was dripping and the floor was all wet. The staffs were friendly but there were too many events held in that hotel so there were some requests overlooked since the staffs were all too busy. The soundproofing was terrible we could hear the noises from other rooms, hallway and so as the noise from their event area. It was a good location since it was in the city, the food was delicious and cooked well.

This 70 + year old hotel surely exceeded my expectations. The check-in process was straight forward and simple so I quickly found myself in my room. This room was nicely furnished and newly renovated with all the standard necessary amenities. Very comfortable king sized bed with very clean sheets and pillows. A couple of bedside light switches were broken though. The bathroom was very clean, with ample supply of towels and toiletries.
The dinning area where a buffet is set up was cool, smelling good and no insects flying around. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. Very attentive service. Reasonable priced food both for the buffet and ala cart menu.
Enjoyed the hotel's bar at night. The Blue Moon. Drinks and karaoke.
There is no swimming pool. There is a large garden where one can eat al fresco.
Overall a very good experience.

The Stories Hotel may be one of the oldest hotels here in Davao City but it is the grandest and best. The staff is so friendly the other five star hotels cud take lessons from here.
The buffet has so many choices and all the food is prepared and cooked to perfection. And there is always hot water in our CR. I stayed in a different 5 star here in Davao n no hot water.
Also everyone at reception is so friendly n helpful. We have been here a few times and never have been disappointed!!

While writing this review, I am currently staying at this hotel.

Upon check-in, I moved 4 times because the rooms' AC is not working.

Furthermore, 5 power interruptions were experienced in a span of 30 minutes without notifying us. I called up the front desk about power interruption, and they told me that they have maintenance. The problem is I was in an online meeting and I kept disconnecting. The front desk informed me that after 30 mins no more power outages but it became more frequent. I understand that they need to undergo maintenance but at least they have notified us.

I had the same experience in 2016 or 2017; I was moved 3 times in the middle of the night because the ACs of their rooms were not working.

Internet is fair but I think you need to re log-in every 2-3 hours. There are times you will get disconnected.

What I like about this hotel is its friendly and helpful staff.

Will I come back again to this hotel? Nope.

Well for the staff 8/10 for friendliness and effort.
The food is eatable and the buffet is ordinary at best.
Wifi is very hit and miss.
After complaining many times about no hot water for the bathroom, I was told many different stories.
Today I am checking out after 4 days with out any hot water.
So if you enjoy the basics like hot showers, avoid this place.
It is worn and tired.
It needs a make over about 4 years ago.

Although the hotel is old, constant renovations keeps it looking presentable. The room is clean and big, the TV has a lot of channels, and the staff friendly and helpful.

But the major, for me, reason why I will not stay there again is the spotty wifi, AND NO HOT WATER! When I inquired about it, they said they would fix something in the basement. Still no hot water. A maintenance guy came in and all he did was turn in the shower faucet and let it run. He said it would eventually turn hot. First of all, that is a total waste of water. And second, after all the wasted water, it didnt turn hot at all!

So if hot water is important for you, dont stay at this hotel.

The Apo View was a very bad experience for me as I specifically booked the hotel for the pool. The pool was prominently displayed on the app as a superior feature but was under construction as I was informed. I conveyed this disgust to the desk clerk and was told sorry sir. I asked to talk to the day manager to know avail so I asked to speak to General manager who completed dodged me at many requests choosing to offer through the day manager free lunch at the buffet. I booked for 3 nights and was offered lunch. Not exactly compensory for a 5 star pool. I would avoid this hotel old and stuffy with staff that is less than reasoning.

I picked this hotel from a guide book completely at random. I was therefore just expecting another run of the mill establishment with the usual standard tatty rooms located in what was claimed to be one of the most unattractive cities in the Philippines. How wrong I was.

From the moment we entered the hotel the staff went out of their way to make our stay probably one of the most pleasant I've experienced at any hotel in any part of the world. On arriving we were very efficiently booked in and our luggage delivered speedily to our room on the seventh floor. We had a few initial problems; for example the plugs on our shavers and tooth brushes would not fit the sockets.No problem at all for the staff who quickly produced British standard adaptors.

From then on our stay became better day by day. Room service was so fast that the food almost arrived as one put the phone down. Our room was beautifully serviced each day, a copy of the local newspaper was under the door by 7am each morning and the staff made a point of asking if they could do more for us.

The hotel possesses a number of restaurants including an sumptious dining room on the ninth floor where you can enjoy splendid views of down town Davao. However, the gem of the Apo View is it's barbeque seafood restaurant hidden away on the ground floor. The standard of their grilled tiger prawns and fish steaks was on a par with the best I have ever experienced in London, Paris and Frankfurt.

In all all it was one of the most pleasurable hotel experiences I have experienced in my many years of travelling the world. The Apo View Hotel is definately a quality establishment that can give the bog standard Marriotts and Hiltons of this planet something to look up to.
