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.

They give discounts to Davao residents when you book a room over the weekend.

The room and bathroom are cozy and very clean. Their free breakfast is also good. The staff are really nice and professional.

I am so happy I found this hotel. I would definitely recommend it to friends.

We stayed here in October 2012 for 6 nights in a 'Vincente Room' (fits 3 people). The room is spacious. There is cable TV and free wifi. There is a small bar fridge in the room. About 300m down the road are some restaurants, coffee shop, gym. Taxis/jeepney can be hailed from outside the hotel. I would definitely stay here again. No problems whatsoever. There is a guard at the door and there is a buffet breakfast (filipino style i.e. rice, chicken, fish) but there are fruits too (pineapple and watermelon).

Positives – Friendly staff, reasonable location, modern decent sized room, has potential.

Negatives – No TV, no toilet paper in room, dire breakfast, noisy air con (sometimes), poor wifi and sadly more. No security for valuables.

Details
The hotel is situated a 15-20 minute walk from the centre.

I stayed for just one night having received a refund for the other two.

My first experience was a 20% hike in the cost as VAT and service charges were added. My second was the door key failing to work.

The Agoda web site said the room had a safe. It didn’t nor did the hotel offer any security for valuables.

The clean hotel room had a desk, space for clothes, a king sized and a fridge. It was large with a modern clean feeling.

There was the usual bathroom with toiletries. There was LCD TV with only 1 channel working (apparently it had been like this for 3 days). Wi-Fi sometimes worked then dropped out.

The staff helpful and friendly speaking some English. They responded to issues with fully apologies.

The air con worked well but occasionally rattled which was sorted by giving it a thump. It was quiet and I slept well.

Breakfast was dire except when I complained and they tried to put things in order. All of the hot food (mainly Philippine) was cold – no candle lights were on. The scrambled egg was cold. No condiments provided. The tea came but with no sugar or milk which they did then provide but with no spoon. The did cook me fresh scrambled egg. This was the worst organized I have ever seen – a shame as they means well, have enough staff, but no attention to detail They need to get some feedback and act a.s.a.p.

I have NEVER left a hotel after one night like this – I must have stayed in hundreds.

It is under new management and has CHANGED it name to Enc?????, although much is still labelled Vincente.

A real shame. For £30 a night it is poor – I give it 3 out of 10 and suggest that you don’t bother with it until it improves significantly.

I was able to book my first time stay here through a phone call. I booked it on the same day via call, I provided my eta, and the front desk attendant I was speaking to was kind enough to reserve a room for me without asking for a card or a deposit. The parking area was in front of the hotel; I didn't understand then why it was blocked by a string of tie box, later that night I realized it was perhaps because of the arriving "VIP" guest. Anyway, the security guard hurriedly set the blocks aside when he realized that I was also an arriving guest, though not the "VIP." The staff (from the security, front desk, housekeeping, etc.) EVERYBODY was very helpful and accommodating. I love the hotel's facade. Everything was on the theme of the Spanish era. I love that this hotel is near Cafe Demitasse - one of the best cafe in Davao city (though service is slow), it's less than 2 minutes walk. It's also 10 minutes away from the university I attend (via taxi). Special mention to the security guard and the big man who was also with him during my runs in and out of the hotel, they were accommodating.

ABOUT THE ROOM: When people arrive on certain unfamiliar places, their olfactory nerve works harder thus making our senses alert. That is why when I come to hotel rooms, I instantly smell new things. Sometimes, I smell bad things on some hotels I have previously stayed in, but in Hotel Vicente, there wasn't any putrid smell. It's just like home. I stayed in a single bedroom; I think it was a Superior room for around 1,800+ pesos. The room was super clean, nicely organized. It has a table and a desk fronting an adequately sized mirror which is a SUPER PLUS, a bedside table (look inside and you'll find a rechargeable flashlight) and a lamp (although mine had no bulb on it, weird), all the tables have drawers. They have a good sized cable TV; I hope that they had a list of TV channels printed, so I don't need to scan the channels. I like that they provide two pillows and duvet. Wooden walls, floor, and the closet are clean. I love that the owners really stuck and maintained the Spanish theme everywhere in the hotel.

ABOUT THE BATHROOM AND ITS AMENITIES: The bathroom is immaculate! It is almost comparable to Red Planet's but better. It has a beautifully designed sink, complete with every nook and hooks you can think of. In front of the sink is a huge rectangular mirror. The faucet, the shower, and all other metal things in the bathroom are shining like new. They also have a bidet, which I also like. Although they only have provided me with a small tube of shampoo and two small rounds of soap, I'm not complaining as I have known hotels to not splurge on soaps and stuff.

FOOD: You know what, I might come here for the sole purpose of eating. Food is great!

IMPROVEMENTS NEEDED: The hotel when I visited was great, but I believe that some minor things need improvement.
1. I just realized late that night that the front desk lady should have informed me (or I guess all the guests) that the restaurant was going to be exclusive to certain guests only. I was thinking, what if I walked through it without knowing that I should not have been there? I am pointing this out because I was planning to eat there that night like I went down only to eat but realized something was off with the table arrangements, so I asked the front desk lady. She told me that it was exclusive for that night but I could get room service. Communication is the key, perhaps? It would help a lot if you could inform the guests because God forbid some embarrassing things might happen. Put a sign on the elevator or whatnot.
2. Slippers. As I've written, the restaurant is excellent as it is but adding slippers would help solidify the "luxurious feel" tagline.
3. Just put a bulb on the lamp. If you're going to put a lamp on the bedside table and leave it plugged in, at least put a bulb on it. I stayed in room 309, if the owner is reading this, there are light (?) switches that didn't do anything.

Overall, I will stay here again. It's now my new favorite hotel in Davao. Kodus to the people who make Hotel Vicente a favorite.

I travel to Davao a lot with my fiance due to his activities there, and before our last trip I would always notice this hotel going to our destinations, and the facade has always intrigued me - looked like a very cute, quaint hotel. This past week, we tried it out, and I was happy to find that the interiors matched this adorable facade.

Considering the relatively affordable price per night of the room, it was great value for money. We were pleasantly surprised that the room, of decent size, had lovely albeit simple interior design (light wood furnishings that still resonated with the old Spanish-Filipino theme) including the bathroom. Everything looked and felt clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Wifi was decent, and worked most of the time. It was a balcony room, and though we were on the 2nd floor facing the street, we didn't experience much noise pollution thankfully. Lacking some basic hotel stuff (e.g. toothbrushes, safe) but I suppose that is to be expected considering the price.

Another excellent factor was that the hotel also has a restaurant, Cristobal, which serves very decent Filipino food. We constantly ordered room service and enjoyed. The breakfast buffet was simple but very sufficient (eggs, meat/ fish, rice, coffee, bread)

The location is good too - very close to Cafe Demitasse, which has good cakes and food too. Very easy to hail a cab in this area.

My only complaint was that service was sometimes slow - if you want your room made, you must make it clear when, what time. The wait staff also needs to be reminded to smile to customers :) however the room service was always fast.

Overall, a pleasant experience. Would stay here again.

Fantastic hotel in quiet location, excellent staff, my room was very clean and the most importantly – they offer fantastic food. I ate few different dinner positions from the menu and I was honestly blown away each time. It is not that common to have such good quality restaurant in a hotel. On top of that Wi-Fi is very fast (rare thing in Philippines…) and AC was very modern and super quiet (again are thing in Philippines). I highly recommend, I spend over 3 months in the Philippines and I think that this is my favorite hotel so far.

Rooms were clean, adequately lit, and cool. The location is near a church and some tourist spotlights in Davao City. The hotel is not too far from the airport. The hotel staff are very accommodating in general. I particularly love their fish dish in Bacalao sauce and paella.

This is a review of the Cristobal restaurant, as there is no separate listing for this on trip advisor.

The restaurant is comfortable and stylish, the type of place one could take someone out on a date, but not too posh that you have to worry about the cost of the meal!

We had a selection of Filipino and Spanish dishes which were most enjoyable; serving sizes were average, not huge but not stingy. The one dish I didn't enjoy was the callos; however a friend who like callos says this is the best place to eat the dish in Davao.

I chose Hotel Vicente for my overnight trip to Davao City because it is rated #2 in Trip Advisor's B&Bs and Inns. It is not a B&B or Inn, it is a boutique hotel. Located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood in a new, well-designed and built building, with 27 rooms, the largest of which is 19 sqmeters, the one I requested for. In comparison with B&Bs and Inns, it is not cheap. I paid P2,300.00 for the night. Room comes with plated breakfast at their Cristobal restaurant. This restaurant has good quality and tasty food. All hotel staff are friendly and seemed to be well-trained. Room has bare essentials. Bathroom has a solitary small tube of shampoo/conditioner and soap, 2 average-sized bath and face towels, hot and cold shower, adequately sized. Bedroom has a small wardrobe, a cabinet in between beds with telephone, a 32-inch TV. You can request for a refrigerator, which I did. Beds are comfortable, so are the 2 pillows for each bed. There's really not much traffic outside, hence not much sound of passing vehicles. I would not mind staying in this hotel again but of course I may want to try out other hotels when I return to Davao.
