We had a quick two night stay at the hotel this week. The staff were so friendly and lovely and the rate is so affordable. However, you do get what you pay for so I wouldn’t recommend if you’re looking for a luxurious stay. The bed was a double so it was small and it was very firm, aircon didn’t work either. But overall, it was a basic and good stay.

The staff was friendly yes however. I suffer from celiac disease and I recall the evening when I booked in and the following morning alerting staff to this. I explained that as a result of my condition I am not able to eat gluten. I don't know what I consumed that had gluten in it. If people don't know what it is they should say I had the most uncomfortable flight back to Cape Town.

Disappointed after staying here numerous times”

I stay here every time I'm in JHB. There's always something broken in the room that requires maintenance to come out - blocked drains, broken door handles to non-functional electrical sockets. You will eat the same breakfast 365 days a year - Nothing changes on the menu and the pastries like the croissants are always baked till there're burnt. Don't expect pancakes and waffles with Nuttela here. Hotel is situated in a good area but to access it you have to drive through a boom gate and into an office park then it's a bit of a drive to reach the hotel. This hotel lacks facilities. There's no restuarant in the hotel so you can't order room service. There's no gym, spa, pool or sauna either. I will definitely find a way better hotel for the same amount money you will pay here.
