“great concept, but they should take more care of it”
Reviewed 22 November 2010

first of all: this hotel has an incredible concept. it is very cheap, and the rooms are very functionally designed and actually stylish (though in a basic way). it kind of looks like being made of one piece of plastic with everything being at the right place and is equipped with nice lights.
the rooms are rather small, but come with an ensuite bathroom. in fact there is a separate toilet and the shower is in the room, as well as the basin, which is eqipped with an automatic light. ... or rather should be ...

in fact this automatic light did not work. furthermore was it not possible to close the door of the toilet. what was most annoying though was that the air con which you need to dry the air after having a shower, really smelled bad. and on top ... a classic ... the linen was quite dirty (although I think it was washed).

all in all: a cool looking room which could be functional, but they really should take more care of it and provide clean linen.

Reviewed 25 January 2010

When I was going to Durban from Capetown, I was bit ill. After check in, the receptionist gave me free medical consulation along with medicine. I appreciated their service. One more thing I would like to say that they are very punctual in every service.
