Price very good, the whole place is very clean and the staff embarrassingly kind as in Philippines customer service style.
The hotel is not very big but a particular care has been devoted to the design and the decoration of the interior which I found very cosy and welcoming. The location is very good and I think for that price the Durban is the best choice in the area. I am thinking about something that disappointed me during my three days stay at the hotel but, honestly, I can't recollect any disappointing memory. The day I left, I checked out at 12, but my plane was late at 0100 during the night, the manager keep my luggage there the whole day while I was around in town before to get to the airport. They allowed me to change clothes for no charge and that made a difference considering how hot was in Manila and how long was my trip back to Europe. Only suprising detail, they do not take credi car of any sort. ONLY CASH. so make sure to get to the reception with some cash ready to pay at least for the first night.
