Let me tell you the power of the internet on fooling ones Human emotion, I thought I was booking into the garden of eden with this one, turned out to be frankensteins Den.

Lows - No power for 36 hours, shower handle came off one day and rendered the shower useless for the rest of the stay, no aircon, no water on one morning, tiles are extremely slippery, a storage cupboard for the rest of the facility in our flat which the staff access as they please, green pool, what looked like the remnants of "lovers lane" on the couch pillows and floors, the cafe if that is what you call it!

Highs - I'll get back to you (although watching the pool turn green was entertaining for 30 seconds), great if you like candles......

Dont be fooled by the Internet pictures. We stayed in a 3 bed apartment for 2weeks.

The rooms are small, stains on carpets and couches. No air con. Water failed on us for 5 hours on day and we had no power for 36 hours near the end of our stay. Power outage was our complex only. Front resturant was poor.

Reception service was good and helpful. Location was good for us. Close to rose bank n freeways.

Found someone in our room accessing a store cupboard.

Showers very poor. Water pressure not high enough. Pool was green for 3days.

Rooms facing internal atrium are too noisy.

Will not stay there again.

Splice Riviera is an excellent service apartment in the heart of Jo'Burg. It is conveniently located next to the Killarney Mall and is a secure location. The rooms are big and clean and it has nice gym on the top floor. The building is in shape of a ship and every floor is positioned as a deck. There was a goof up regarding room booking but I was given an alternate room. The hotel can have a better restaurant in house - the current one is pathetic
