Its location in the center of the city is very comfortable for a tourist, it allows easy access to all historical points of interest, we found that its location is a safe area both day and night, you can walk in a quiet way near the hotel,

Very disappointed at the service and hotel... after paying almost R 30 000.00 for 4 days accommodation, we arrived at the hotel and was informed that the room we originally booked was now being occupied by the owner and was thus not available to us. We were then given room 1104 which had a very bad and unbearable moss smell....

Property is centrally located, staff friendly and professional but upkeep of building is not same as standard they advertise. More of a 3 star feel and look and general furniture and fittings are either worn or not working at all.
