From the first day we arrived they could not stop talking about their first Durban encounter and on the last day that we checked out it was a sad day for my... More

This hotel has a good location but it is very noisy even in floor 20. Food was good and the room was clean. Good value for money. one important note, the internet service is very poor as you can use the wi fi only at the restaurant area.
