Red Planet Hotel Davao (formerly Tune Hotel Davao) is a 155-room value hotel located along J.P. Laurel Avenue, Lanang District in Davao City. It is the seventh branch of Tune Hotels in the Philippines which opened last December 2013 making it one of the newest hotels in the city.
Red Planet Hotel Davao is conveniently located 15-minutes away from the airport, and right between the Sasa Ferry Terminal and Sta. Ana Wharf. It is also close to Davao City's premier shopping, entertainment and dining establishments, as well as major convention center.
The front desk is located on the second floor of the hotel building. Checking-in is pretty efficient and quick. After verification of your booking and filling out of the guest form, your electronic key card will be handed to you. It's that simple.
Remember that smoking inside hotel facilities is strictly prohibited in Davao City. They really take this city ordinance very seriously as you can see from the notice posted on the front desk. There are designated areas outside the hotel where smoking is allowed. The hotel staff will gladly assist you for directions. There's also a coffee vending machine at the hotels lobby and a small souvenir shop beside the front desk. For the guests' convenience, there are also toiletries available for sale at the front desk.
Standard check-in time is at 2:00pm onwards while check-out time is at 11:00am. Early check-in starting from 11:00am (P300.00) and late check-out up to 2:00pm (P300.00) are subject to room availability.
Internet kiosks are also available at the lobby. Just ask for a user id and password at the front desk. Use of the Internet kiosk is free of charge but is limited only to 30 minutes, after which the user id and password will automatically expire. Right beside the Internet kiosks is an interactive photo kiosk where guests can take their Red Planet Hotel Davao souvenir photo and instantly send the photo to their email address. Don't forget to take your own souvenir photo and share it on your social networking profiles.
The electronic key card issued to checked-in guests has three functions. First, it serves as an access card to the elevators. Without it, access is only limited to the main entrance at the ground floor and to the hotel lobby on the second floor. To access the other floors, guests will have to tap the electronic key card on the sensor inside the elevator to activate the buttons.
Second, the electronic key card serves as an access card to the guests' assigned room. Only the key card issued to you can unlock the door to your assigned room. You can neither use your key card to access other guests' rooms, nor can other guests use their key card to access yours.
Lastly, the electronic key card serves as a power switch. Only when the key card is inserted into its slot that power supply inside the room will be activated. This avoids unnecessary consumption of electricity when guests are not inside the room. Please take extra care of the electronic key card to avoid loss or damage. It is not a souvenir item and must be surrendered at the front desk upon check-out.
Red Planet Hotel Davao has two types of room. The Double Room has a queen size bed while the Twin Room has two single beds. Both room types measure 14sqm and has an en-suite bathroom. All rooms are equipped with a ceiling fan, an electronic safe, a hair dryer and heated shower. In compliance with international standards, Red Planet Hotel Davao also has Accessible Rooms reserved for guests with disabilities.
Red Planet Hotels take pride in its 5-Star Quality Beds. These spring mattress beds are custom made for Red Planet Hotels so that its guests can enjoy a comfortable, 5-star quality sleep, without having to stay in expensive 5-star hotels. They are clad in clean bed sheets and a 250-thread count duvets.
The en-suite bathroom is equipped with a Heated Power Shower that is highly acclaimed by many Tune Hotel guests around the world. The hotel also has excellent water pressure. Another thing we love about Tune Hotels is that their toilet is installed with a bidet, a very important amenity not found in many hotels in the Philippines.
