My stay at the Premier Hotel in East London was very comfortable.Definetly accommodation that is cheap and well worth every cent. The only sugestion i can give is maybe having a smoking section in the Hotel as leaving your room and having to stand on the street is not very nice :)

Food good but everything else leaves a lot to be desired. Windows needs a serious wash, lift has a capacity for 4 but i battled with my luggage and i... More

A dated run down hotel in a noisy part of town. Carpets are filthy, rooms are noisy and even basic amenities like a two prong plug in the room are absent. Stay try hard but the hotel is abysmal. Avoid!!!!!!!!

The staff were really helpful and I felt that they were commited to satisfy the guests and as well do what they employed to do. And good job to the professional Mzimkhulu and the rest of the reception staff and housekeeping.
