the hotel staff is very friendly, the rooms are small, doesn't have wifi coverage in the hotel except in the lobby, room cleanliness is very good, need to have a room service as there's no shops or restaurants around

Central location. KFC, McDonalds and a garage across the street. Friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are very well designed and comfortable. You have aircon, toilet, shower, flat screen TV and a comfortable bed. Outside noises aren't a problem either as the rooms are well insulated. You would be very hard-pressed to find better value for money.

We stayed there for Ultra Music Festival and it was a great location to be in. It is close to a mall and various other places to get a snack. The breakfast was what they called a "dry breakfast" which was decent. If you ever need to attend something at Nasrec show grounds or FNB stadium (soccer city previously) this...

An ideal place for budget travellers, especially those on a holiday. Stayed there many years ago. In fact stayed in them at Cape Town, Pretoria, Jo'burg all great. The breakfast, we thought was awesome. Not too great for choice, but lovely nonetheless, especially sine the price of stay was more than reasonable.
