We stayed in Kimberley for 6 nights and overall we enjoyed our stay. We booked luxury suite with two double beds and the suite itself was really perfect. We had no compaints about anything but... we got a suite with a backyard view which was horrible. It was on the 8 th floor even if I asked good time in advance to give us the highest possible floor. And it was impossible to sleep because of the terrible smell coming from the vent of a diner downstairs. Windows were not really well sealed to prevent the garlicky fumes making us reay unwell. After a few medicated nights I gathered my courage to ask reception to move us to the higher floor, away from the smelly vent. They did that tout de suite and we were so happy - away from that smell and sad looking walls- we got a view on the 29th floor, even if it was still backyard. To your information- all luxury suites with 2 double beds are with a view to the backyard!! Which is a shame. And if the price on the 8th foor and 29th floor is the same, I find it really unfair to the fellow traveller- difference is enormous even if rooms are the same. For one night we booked a suite with a kingsize bed and got a room with a street view. It was very nice suite.
Anyway, hotel is very nice, service is exellent and very professional. I just expected the guys in the reception to be more plesant - no smiles in 6 days. Girls in the reception, on the other hand, the doormen and porters, were really lovely people. Super professionals!
So, exellent and affordable hotell with superb location in Midtown provided you get a highest possible floor.
