The reception was good but only to find that they have decided to give me a two single bed room and that pissed me off. Besides that the breakfast was good with warm welcoming staff. They made time to orientate the whole team that i was travelling with and made us feel home.

This hotel is well position away from the crowd within a business park. Good security and undercover parking. Friendly staff and free wifi. The rooms are modern with exquisite LED lighting, flat screen, safe, hairdryer, tea/coffee complimentary. For the price of this accommodation, it's really worth it. I enjoyed my stay

Nice, very clean, business hotel on a budget. I have work in close proximity so I choose hotels on location. Proper express, quick check in. Needed the sleep and slept like a baby. Buffet average but it's a good bite. 10 mins to Sandton via Uber and 2kms to Eskom

This hotel is located just minutes from the mall of africa which is very convenient. Ideal for overnight stay or for business. Breakfast was good and the restaurant. I felt safe at all times. I could hear the noise of the traffic not very quiet.
