I stayed here for one night recently and I don't think I would go back. The rooms are spacious but the cost gets very high if more then one traveller stayed in the room. Balcony has a view of more apartments. Parking is between parking for flats and businesses so finding the hotel is difficult. I only had one small bag but the porter grabbed my key and bag from my hand. I thought a porter with one bag was pointless but as a whole the staff are very pushy. On arrival the water in my room was cold as the geyser had been turned off. Very irritating. The room service was okay but my lasagne was curried and that was not mentioned on the menu plus the mini bottle of wine with enough for one glass cost me R55 and it was very average wine. The breakfast in the morning was very good and the selection varied.
It was alright for one night but the nearby City Lodge and the very nice Garden Court are much better choices with welcoming staff and a more professional hotel like feel.
Oh and the giant mirror head board is just disturbing.
