We enjoyed our stay at the Glam. The rooms was spacious and clean. Everything that we wanted to do was within walking distance, which made it very comfortable. We would not mind to stay there again, it was a good experience.

the room was in a good condition. However, there was no air-conditioners and the fan was missing until we enquired about it. Mosquitoes were an issue which could have been resolved with an airccon.The manager was never at the desk and we had to wait outside until she answered the door.

Hotel is very nice and good situated. To bad, that there is no lobby, for example to wait. a taxi. Manager is friendly and helpful, but by arriving no informations about the second floor, the possibilities to travel in town.... the bathroom very big and nice, but no possibility to put something, just on the floor.

The reception is shady, the only hotel with a "downtown" internet cafe as part of its reception. The room are very small for a South African hotel perked at the charges rate. It is literally a 2star motel. Nothing Glam. There are better, cleaner hotels in the vicinity at the same rate.

If you are a tourist, this hotel is well situated and well priced. In the city centre, its within comfortable walking distance of hundreds of excellent restaurants and coffee shops. As a business hotel, not ideal. Poor WiFi makes for a less than ideal business experience. The rooms are pretty and quite large, but the curtains should be block out... More

Good afternoon Donald, Thank you for your comments, your opinion matters to us and we will look into getting heavier curtains, this may well help keep the noise out to a degree as well. We are also in the process of securing a faster internet provider to improve our guest experience at The Glam. Regards Dean More

we would like to thank the staff at The Glam for their excellent service. They were very flexible and helpful. Our stay there felt like our home away from home. I could not have asked for a better a place.

Ruth in front office great. Friendly and welcoming. No parking is annoying. There is a 24 hour parking garage a block away but always full as services other hotels and businesses in the area. If you park on the 5th floor and above no lifts and have to hike all the way down. I expected at least a hairdryer in... More

Hi InyatiSafari, Thank you for your comments, Unfortunately parking is a huge problem in the inner city and always in short supply. With regard to hairdryers, it seems a few have "Gone with The Wind" and left us, please accept my apologies, I have purchased 5 new hairdryers this morning so there will definitely be one available next time.

Clean, crisp white linen and a spacious room with a view over Green Market Square. However, I could not find the hair dryer, I abhore Nescafe sachets and the tea/coffee station should not be next to the bed stand. Very kind and friendly service, waiting up for us as our function only finished at 12 midnight.
