If you're just looking for a basic, cheap place to sleep - then the Ecotel will do fine. But don't expect luxury - you get what you pay for.

I was first given a terrible room which was tiny and airless and the "window" actually opened onto a scullery. No fan, no aircon, no window.

I complained and was moved to an outside room which was infinitely better and far more what I'd been expecting. It was perfectly adequate, relatively comfortably bed, a small desk and a shower and toilet. No aircon and the windows had no burglar bars so i didn't feel comfortable sleeping with them open, especially as the external gate seemed to be often left open and the area seems slightly dodgy.

The big issue for me was that when I went to shower in the morning, the hot water lasted about 2 mins and gradually tailed off into cold. As it's winter in Joburg, that was not fun. I didn't even complain, just left.

All in all, it's not a bad place to stay for the price, but do request an outside room.

O R Tambo Lodge seems to be in a new neighborhood, the last 100m is on gravel road, but already it offers a relaxed atmosphere which me & my wife enjoyed breifly. Work was still in progress at the back garden and already it looked inviting to soak the sun in...

Hotel simples com fácil acesso para quem vai deslocar para outros locais da África do Sul, utilizamos o hotel como 'ponte' ficamos no hotel para irmos no dia seguinte para Cidade do Cabo (como tínhamos feito compras a recepcionista teve a gentileza de guardar nossos pertences no quartinho). Local agradável e muito simples e preço baixo.

I have stayed at Ecolodge for one night. The window latches were broken. The material of the head board of the bed was dirty. The carpet in the room was dirty . The curtains were dirty. It was noisy because it is close the street.
