My thought over and over during my recent stay in an executive room at the PanAfric Hotel was, "$200+ per night. Really?" Before launching into my objections about the place, I do want to say that all of the staff were friendly, helpful and professional in every way. To them, I'd give five stars. If the hotel were priced at $100 a room per night I'd think it was fair. But for over $200, I will stay elsewhere next time. I could overlook the fact that the shower stall was way too narrow and that the hot water at 6pm was luke warm (even my 5 year old daughter complained it wasn't hot enough). I didn't really mind the fact that the stopper in the sink was stuck permanently down and I had to pry it up with my fingernails to drain the sink... But then, I turned out the lights to go to bed and noticed that every ten seconds a smoke detector centered directly over the bed would flash a green light. I called housekeeping to find out if there was a problem with it and was told that all the smoke detectors do that to show they are working properly. It was pitched as if I should be grateful! I don't hold the staff at fault. But what on earth was the management thinking? Surely they don't sleep in their own rooms. Fortunately I happened to have some duct tape on me and covered it up. It was then I noticed that the bed was hard as a plank. LIterally. It felt like sleeping on a board covered with about half an inch of padding. The mattress had no give to it at all. True, I have been likened to Princess Pea, and I've certainly had to sleep on a lot of uncomfortable mattresses in my life, but not after paying $200+ for the favor. Bottom line: It's not a bad hotel, but it is awful value for the money.
