OMG! The Concierge Boutique Bungalows is were the "After Dinner Party" was hosted by the friendly, efficient and awesome Oliver (he worked the shift at the time). Myself and my friend had to drop off mutual friends of the bride. There were about 14 - 16 of them styaing over and some (like me, gate crashed). I loved the glass spacious showers, private balcony, colourful lights, stunning decor and most importantly the beds and bedding were to die for! I felt loke sleeping over! Curtains are the substitue for cupboards, Dstv, plasma screens, stunning mirrors, ect. The Vintage restuarant (5min walk) is halaal and they food is highly recommended.

Room Tip: I was not staying over.

If you really don't like big hotel chains - like me - this hotel Concierge near Florida Road will seem like a bit of heaven!

Getting there means small streets is a bit tricky, but once you are there security is fine.

Decor is trendy and rooms are large and they have thought of everything you may need. I love the integrated bathroom. Nice quirky feel, love the gowns.

Breakfast at the Freedom Cafe was great. Walk to Authentic India for a great dinner.

They could just get those mosquitos under control, it would be great.

This hotel is a great wee find! It's nestled off a quiet side street close to the city centre (that you have to be careful not to miss) and is very safe and a secure with plenty of parking available given the hotel's size. All of the rooms are designed in different trendy, funky styles, and are very modern and well appointed with everything you could need - the waterfall showers and comfy beds are amazing after a long day driving!

All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful in guiding us through our first days in Durban, and were only too happy to recommend local restaurants and provide suggestions of how we could entertain ourselves during our stay. The beach, Florida Rd and Moses Madiba were all within walking distance, or certainly less than a 100ZAR cab ride.

The real star of the hotel though was the cafe - breakfast each morning (included) was amazing! There was a great variety of fresh and healthy options as well as more local choices - and great coffee to go with.

It was a real pleasure staying here - I'll certainly be back!

Beautiful decor. You can see a lot has been invested in making the rooms look smart, with the shutters, tiles, verandah etc. But in terms of the small stuff, there is room for improvement.
We booked a 2 night stay for 2. THere was only one gown. There werent shower caps, or tea (even though there was coffee, milk and a fully stocked bar fridge, and the notice said with Tea and Coffee), and we didnt get body lotion the next day.
Also, because the rooms are so close to each other, if you have loud neighbours, good luck!

I think for R1 100 per night, attention to detail is key.

But all in all, it was beautfiul and staff were friendly.

I really liked the concierge! The food in the freedom cafe is excellent and all of the little touches really added to the design and aesthetics. It's clear the owners have a great eye for detail and our balcony was like a tiny oasis.
The only downsides are the difficulties in keeping out noise from the hallway or the street. In general, not a huge problem. And it was a bit odd that our room didn't have a separate bathroom door, instead the bathroom was divided by a curtain. Keep in mind this somewhat unique set up if you're planning to share your room. One note: you should probably have a GPS to stay here, otherwise it would be really tricky to find. It is, however, close to lots of great restaurants.
