It certainly is an okay option for one or two nights. We booked our first and last night on Réunion in Hotel Austral as Saint-Denis is close to the airport. Our room on the first night was rather dark and cramped and with some noise from the pool guests. Our room on the last night was more airy. The hotel is renovating, so it might look more promising in the future. They have wifi, but even when following all instructions (trice) to make good use of it, it still didn't work. Upon complaint we had to put up with 'yes, it works!'. Not very helpful...
Good to know they have a private parking lot which you can access with a code.
The hotel is centrally located in Saint-Denis. Réunion's capital is overlooked by most tourists, but does merit a visit. I can recommend the area near the church at night which seems to be experciencing a boom of trendy bars and restaurants. Expect a laidback atmosphere though.
