Review: Blue Velvet Hotel and Cafe in Davao City

Photo from
Last Sunday, July 31, I took the PRC Board Exam for Real Estate Property Appraisers in Davao City. I got to know the school venue (University of Immaculate Concepcion in Bonifacio St.) only two days before the exam. I searched the internet for hotels near the venue and fortunately I was able to booked at the Blue Velvet Hotel and Cafe through Agoda. I chose Blue Velvet since it has the most affordable room rate among the hotel accommodations (at least in Agoda's list) near the school where I will be taking the exam.

Blue Velvet Hotel and Cafe is located at CM Recto corner Rizal Extension, Davao City. It is walking distance to the San Pedro Cathedral, OsmeƱa Park, Davao City Hall and food outlets like Jollibee, Mandarin Tea Garden and Taps (Davao's most famous tapsilogan). Most importantly, it is also walking distance to the University of Immaculate Concepcion, the school venue for Real Estate Appraiser Board Exam.

The staff at the desk was smiling and friendly and after verifying my Agoda Hotel Voucher I was given the room key and TV remote control. My room was in the second floor and the hotel has no elevator so I have to take the stairs. Not really a problem for me since I've been running running regularly since late last year.

This is my Standard Single room accommodation (P650/night).

The bed is comfortable and can even fit two person (depending on body size). The room has no windows but the airconditioning worked just fine.

The room has a clean private bath with hot & cold shower. But I was given only a towel and no tissue, soap and shampoo. It was a good thing that I brought my own toiletries. 

It has a small remote-controlled cable TV. However there was no cabinet/closet where I could hang my clothes. 

Overall, I did have a pleasant stay at the Blue Velvet Hotel and Cafe. I slept soundly all throughout and the good night sleep helped prepare my mind and body for the board exam the following day.
