Glitz, lights and "in your face" decor. Great if you are want something different and aren't looking for a spacious room where you need to work comfortably.
Stayed here on business and was disappointed. Bedroom is small, bathroom is separated by a curtain, shower is small, basin was blocked and toilet never flushed properly. Got the distinct impression that this hotel was put together in a rush and on a low budget.
Pity about the above as the staff are superb and must get 100% for friendlinss. The location is also excellent - situated in Melrose Arch where safe, close to Sandton, Rosebank and the "old" CBD and suurounded by more shops and restaurants than you could ever need.
Also used the gym where the running machines are new but near the bottom of the range! What a pity as this hotel could have so much more going for it!!
