Johannesburg, South Africa
Reviewed 12 October 2016

Amazing staff, amazing rooms, amazing breakfast, I can recommend this for anyone, old and young. Walking distance from the promenade, pretty central and easy to find. A must when you are on a business trip and looking for a good nights rest. These guys really have it all figured out.

A very clean and decent place to stay with very friendly and lovely staff. Would definitely go back and stay at the same place. Good sized rooms with the front ones having very beautiful views. An addition of bath tubs to the showers would be awesome
