“Never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Very disapointed that i couldnt get breakfast, area was fairly busy and all the empty tables were dirty and no one to clean up. Has to sit at a dirty table with dirty plates from the earlier customer. Asked the staff to clean up but was ignored. The eggs were finished but managed to salvage 2 pieces of cold bacon and a slice of toast. Asked the staff if there was any more and was ignored.' will never use a stay easy hotel again.

Wat I liked
Next to Eastgate shopping mall
Reasonable price
Breakfast included
Friendly reception staff

Wat I didn't like
Wifi only free for one gadget per room even if you book a double room only one gadget can access the free wifi. Very annoying especially if u r 2 in a room.
There was some strong smell in th room. Smelt like dust coming from the carpet or smoke somewhere. I stayed in room 325 and I could not sleep because of breathing difficulties.

Tried to check in early but I was disappointed as I had to pay about 50% extra for this facility. I landed in Johannesburg at 7am and was at the hotel by around 8:30. I had to either wait for check in or pay in additional funds to get a room immediately, which I did. The rooms are not bad but are small. For wifi I was given instructions to log on but the reception was really bad. Breakfast is basic but quick. Tea and Coffee with machines but it's fine if you're on the go. A decent hotel at a budget price. Good location to the airport, about 20 mins by car or taxi, traffic dependent. R200 for a taxi, R190 for the hotel shuttle.

My 3rd stay and as always excellent service from staff, Dumasani was outstanding as usual and remembered my name from my first stay last year.

Rooms are extremely comfortable and well maintained by house keeping.

Found all staff to be extremely friendly

Will be back

Having been put in accommodation that was not close to anywhere convenient to eat I asked to be moved to an hotel close to the Eastgate Centre. I was put in the StayEasy where I stayed a week in January 2013. It was extremely busy due to the soccer events. It was a perfectly OK budget hotel. They do not serve food other than a buffet breakfast. You can get takeaways in your room. Walking to the Eastgate Centre is about 12 minutes and there is a lot of choice there although ladies may feel very insecure doing this walk in the dark. The hotel has taxis which is very convenient and an airport shuttle. Some people complained of electrics going off in their rooms and the electrical wiring was not that good as often the case in budget hotels in SA (things broken). All in all an avergae budget hotel that I would stay at again if necessary. Paul

I did a years tour of South Africa and have stayed at many hostels, B&B's and hotels. My first stop was the Stay Easy in Johannesburg which was like a Best western in the states. Comfortable rooms, not luxurious but you are also not paying the price of a luxurious hotel. Every thing in the room and the hotel was very clean and the staff were very kind and helpful. If I visit South Africa in the future I will definitely choose this hotel again.
