made a last-minute booking here when plans to stay at another hotel fell through. found this through good reviews on trip advisor, which were pretty accurate. paid USD40 for a standard room, and it was clean and reasonably sized. there was no power in the day due to loadshedding and the room was a bit dark since it was in a corner, but there are large windows and i kept my door open to let light in.
It was pretty cold at night, and my room had no air-conditioning so they sent a heater to my room which was amazing (although they did take a really long time and had to be reminded). food was also decent although more expensive than eating outside.
as a female, solo traveller, I really like this hotel because the rooms face the courtyard (rather than having to walk through narrow, dim corridors) and there was a security guard right outside my window, so I felt pretty safe from ghosts and criminals. didn't hurt that the wifi connection was good, the bed was comfy, and the location was excellent.
