This is a rather unusual hotel, with no internal corridors, but quite typical for the area.
It is in the upmarket Rosebank area, a thirty second, safe walk, from the nearby Rosebank Mall. The shopping centre has loads of really good restaurants and is jointed up to the Hyatt hotel, which is nice for evening drinks.
The shopping centre also has a Woolworths department store which is the equivalent of M & S in Ireland or the UK. There are also a wide range of shops, which are good value, so pack light and buy there!
The hotel itself consists of small blocks of small suits and rooms, your door will be in the open air. Surrounded by nice palm trees and a quiet safe ambience. The hotel is quite good value, considering how safe and secure it is. The rooms are of a very good standard but are a little outdated, but just a little.
I had a one bedroom suite, all rooms have a fully working kitchen with crockery etc. There is a dining table, sitting room and a spacious bedroom with a nice bathroom. Even the singel rooms are very spacious, but given the cost it's wise to go with a suite, for the extra space and comfort. There is also car parking available.
Breakfast is fine, but I tended to walk accross to the mall to get some, cheaper and the dining room is small and the food very plain if you are here for a long stay. There is an outdoor pool too, with free coffee, pastry and juice on reception. And drinks in the evening.
Be warned if you are travelling for business the WIFI in the hotel is virtually non functioning. There are expensive options to buy time, but in my experience it did not work. I could never get online using the hotel network.
