While in the centre of town and well located, this hotel is in need of a total refurbishment. Despite having given them time of arrival they weren’t ready for my travel group..

The hotel is situated in a central area, i.e city centre, not very far from Union building and other interesting areas like Sammy max square, taxi rank, station, Gautrain. They two universities are not that far.

This hotel was a great surprise to me. I use to go there a lot in the 70's and it was turned into something really nice. Very good service. Rooms also very nice. Unfortunately the setting in the middle of the city is not the best.
