I stayed here for two weeks. Negotiated a rate that is almost less than half of what I would pay for a similar facility in Johannesburg. Great value for money. Centrally located. With Uber service readily available, it made my stay blissful. Very quiet neighbourhood and just opposite the virginactive gym.

I'd like to start off with saying the rooms are beautifully appointed and very modern but on closer inspection one notices the tiny details; a broken tile in the bathroom, loose skirting and you could see no care was taken in mounting the plastic window like sheets found in the entrance to the bathroom door. Fingerprints (evidence of installation as... More

I stayed here for two nights and this stay completely ruined my otherwise awesome holiday! The whole experience went from fairly good to so bad that I would never even think about coming back to this hotel or even recommending it to my friends and family! Starting from finding the hotel, they do not even have a proper entrance! The... More

The virgin active is around the cnr. Walking... More

Let's start on a positive note. The property has amazing sized rooms, and the facilities within them are excellent. Cleanliness is not an issue in my view. Location is not very good (CBD/Foreshore area) and aggressive beggars make the surrounding area unsafe and unpleasant. The issue with this property surrounds very concerning financial practices, bordering on the fradulent, that appear... More

I have first stayed at this hotel apartment in 2011 and everything was very modern hence the reason why I chose to return. Since then the place has made few additions by adding a restaurant and bar, great but it would seems that everything in apartments stayed the same since 2011..great location and the staff were not very friendly compare...
