I stayed here for 3nights, hotel is reasonable nd the Stuff is very friendly. The hotel is very clean and it's nearer to most of the Attractions in Durban. The only problem will be the noise as it is near the bus station but other than that it's the best.

The Sun 1 in Durban ( formerly Hotel Formule ) offers value for money..... Especially if three of you share the room. This is a no-frills hotel that offers the basics. Clean, comfortable and safe. Situated right next to a national bus terminus and close to Durban railway station, the Sun 1 is relatively within easy walking distance of the... More

When I travel the following is important: safety, cleanliness and value for money. The Sun1 Durban met these three criteria. If you are looking for the lifestyle of the rich and famous, this is not for you. Some positives: - close to Durban (rail) station and long distance bus terminus - People Mover bus system very near hotel - rooms... More

Must say that this is such a basic accommodation establishment. Thinking that there is beter places to stay and at the same amount. Was not impressed at all. The passageway smelled like old socks and rooms smelled musty. Not recommended.
