Doesn't get worse than this. Bad food, noisy and very rude staff. In the morning we went to the restaurant for breakfast and catching up. After few minutes (Maybe 45) one of the waiters rudely demanded that we pay for what we have take and leave the hotel. He also said that we were holding a meeting and we should pay more. Worst experience ever

Basic, clean hotel very close to Central Business District. There aren't many hotels in the locality that offer rooms at such low rates. The wi-fi in public areas is reasonably fast, but it isn't so good in rooms. The downside is that there is very very loud music being played on Saturday nights (vehicle honks, loud speakers, vuvuzela, god knows what...). No exaggerations - YOU JUST CANNOT SLEEP!! Carry your ear plugs if you want to get some sleep. The bathrooms are very small. I asked for a slightly later check out (a 12 noon checkout instead of 10 am) and the hotel staff wouldn't accommodate the request!
