“Great staff/convenient location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2010

I traveled to J'Burg for one night enroute to Kruegar from USA. I arrived quite late and upon arrival the kitchen was closed. My sister and our friend had already arrived but had not eaten. We went to restaurant and Johnson , our waiter immediatly went to the kitchen and was able to produce some great fish and chips for us and enticed kitchen staff to stay to prepare it. He was so personable and accomodating. The room was clean and neat. We left after one night as we had a long drive but on our next trip will spend more time. Everyone we met at hotel was very nice and shuttle to hotel was on time as promised. The hotel is very clean and beds were very comforatble.

Is a brand new hotel, I stayed with a friend during the world cup and it really seems that they need to do a lot of training for the employees since all the time the managers where the ones solving the problems, so you need it to wait for them to arrive.

As for the rooms where clean, spacious, the TV had like 5 channels, the food is really good specially the breakfast, and the shuttle service to the airport and to the emperors palace was very useful.

The employees where very kind and nice, it's really easy to arrive to the hotel if you rent a car is 30 min from Jo-burg and 5 min from the airport.
Because is near from the airport in the morning you hear the planes.

This "hotel" - a parking garage converted to a "hotel" is out of the way in a bad neighborhood. Newly converted - smelled of paint - bare bones - ignorant reception staff, poorly trained, could not care less about customers. Ony redeeming feature: decent food at the small restaurant.
Avoid the place if you can
