I was very apprehensive, initially, but the location is superb. Well connected and surrounded by the business district. A 24Hr huge store (wouldn't call it a mall) right opposite and West Gate mall another 300 meters down the lane.
The lodging is quite comfortable. You get a sitting area with ample seating arrangement and a bedroom complete with a wardrobe and a locker. Bed was pretty comfortable although air-conditioning is missed. Would have liked to see an attached bath but no complaints on that.
Quality wise, I got fresh linen every day, enough fresh towels in the bath and the room was cleaned everyday and smelled fresh.
Gym is a nuisance as you would hear loud music early in the morning and then again in the evenings.
Breakfast is a problem as it's pretty basic. I wouldn't like to have it everyday. But then there are enough outlets at the nearby West Gate mall.
Internet was non-existent. I tethered my iPhone and used the data services of Airtel connection that I bought at the airport.
Staff is amazing and always around to help you. All in all, a good option to stay if you are on a budget business travel.
