                Everything was great, apart from an incident which rouined my mood, and that is : my room was facing the sun for long hours during the day, so i asked to change the room, however, the manager did not cooperate.. Beside not forgetting to mention that curtains are a llittle short in comparison to the windows which lets some light in even if you dont like that to happen... One last notice is that you will strugle if are a muslim as there are no water sprinklers in the bathrooms. Otherwise everything is perfect and all the staffs are 10/10.

                Pros. The location is close to Sandton and Fourways. Accommodation is way cheaper than those 2 areas but close enough to enjoy events in those areas. Cons: the management must treat this like a proper hotel. They put one roll of toilet paper for the day. I am sure what happens when more is needed, it will be embarrassing to ask for toilet paper in the middle of the night. The second problem once house keeping staff is done with cleaning the rooms, no one has access to housekeeping stuff. I needed change of sheets early evening as I have spilled liquid on them but no one had access to New sheets, so I had to sort myself for the evening.

                The hotel is cheap and good value for money. The shower curtains have to be replaced with glass or washed every time visitors leave. In the room that I slept in , it looked like it was dragged through red mud. Obviously to look like that it hasn’t been washed in a long time.

                The shower curtains are dirty. This time the curtain had mould meaning it hasn’t been washed in a while. Either remove the shower curtains or wash as they are changing linen . It’s not nice to have that dirty shower curtain touch your body , knowing very well lots of bodies were touched by the same curtain. The room and linen is clean, towels perfect.,, toilet is clean, the issue of one toilet roll is not on. Do we have to ask for toilet paper in the middle of the night?
