Verified reviewexcellent

I stayed here for 9 nights at the end of 2008. I was very impressed with the quality of the rooms, furnishings, bed linen. The prices are reasonable too and the location is fantastic if you're one for hanging out in trendy wine bars, restuarants etc. I felt very safe as the place is very secure and the guards at night were helpful and friendly. The staff were always ready to assist with anything. The owner and manageress were very accomodating as I changed my booking a couple of times. On the whole value for money, very nicley done up, better than the over priced hotels in Rosebank, Sandton. Will definately stay there again when I return to Joburg.
