We stayed at this hotel for 1 night after arriving late and before leaving on our afternoon flight to Namibia the following day.
The hotel provides free shuttle service (every 30 minutes) and is located a mere 5 minutes’ drive away. We were picked up from the Shuttle Pick-up Point located just by the side of Intercontinental Hotel – walk straight from the exit of Arrival hall through a brightly-lit alley (with the multi-story parking on your left) and you will see sign directing you to the Pick-up Point. Many people will be walking towards the same direction, so just follow or better still, ask.
We paid only £45 for our stay there and had booked through Agoda.com. This rate includes the room, breakfast and free wifi from the room. For the price which we had paid, we are more than satisfied with what the hotel has offered us. Our room was clean, quiet (we had one facing the pool), had strong hot shower and standard toiletries. Security at the hotel was tight, with gates to the hotel locked and guarded on a 24-hour basis.
The staff were polite, front desk tasks were efficiently handled and queries were knowledgeably answered. Breakfast was sufficient and of a reasonably spread of hot and cold choices. Eggs can be ordered but ours were not ‘elegantly’ done but still edible!!
Overall, we enjoyed our short stay at this hotel and have no qualms in recommending it to future travellers who need just a comfortable bed near the airport after a long flight in and a hearty breakfast before an early flight out. This hotel is very reasonably priced for the standards which it provided.
You get what you pay for and for £45, this hotel passes all the basic necessities test which one would have expected from it. That is why we have given it our full rating. If you want more, go for the Intercontinental Hotel just across the road from the Arrival Hall but be prepared to fork out £285 for a room for two!!
