After walking around and having to ring the hotel we finally found the enterance which is actually on the square with no drive way, the recpetion was a dodgy bar with no real enterance, we checked in with a bad feeling in our stomachs about the dodgy looking hotel. We were on the top floor where once we got inside we saw a very spacious apartment which was modern however as we wanted to watch the world cup we went straight to the tv to find there was no batteries in the remote, we then went to call reception to find the phone didn't work! we had to walk all the way down stairs to ask for batteries where we were told to go back to our room and maintence would be there soon. The maintence lady brought us batteries, picked up the phone put it down picked it up again and said 'yep its broken'. GREAT! We then found that our hot water had not been turned on NOR our fridge and when questioning this at reception we were told they had to change our rooms because of a flood and no one had pre pared the room.
Breakfast is in the hotel across the way so you have to get a reciept from reception and walk over.. a positive to this is that this hotel has free WIFI
Internet is not free, not even in the Lobby area and you can only connect one device when you purchase which is a waste of time for an international traveller.
If you want to sleep past 7am don't bother staying here as the council workers do there warms up chants every morning just near the hotel and it echoes all through.
We also had trouble wit our shower water pressure as when in the shower it would dull down for about 10 seconds and then go back to normal, this happened all throughout your shower.
The staff then became a little more helpful throughout the trip when asking about booking shark diving tours and trips to V&A Water front and Robben Island. They also moved their reception to a new desk and no longer then bar
Overall, not a great stay at all
