This hotel is not what it is made out to be, the area is very dangerous, reports of rapings and murders in the same area have been reported and we were shocked at the state of it when we arrived, if we had know about this prior to booking online we would definitely not have booked here. when we arrived there was not power at all, our paper work had stated that we were from zimbabwe but we are actually from australia, we were told to take our luggage up the stair case with no help at all, we then arrived at the room and it was not even made up yet, the room was filthy and still had macdonalds left overs in it. we then took our stuff back out and left, as we left we noticed a whole heap of suspicious looking guys out near our car. we left the immediately and checked in at the hemmingways casino for $50 extra we got 5 star accom. including breakfast. Please dont risk your life and stay at king david.
