The room had no air conditioning or window to the outside, only onto a passage, therefore the room was very dark and stuffy. The walls are not very soundproof, as we could hear the neighbouring rooms guests until late the night, which meant we could not sleep. TV reception is not the best.

It is close to Gallagher Estate and right next door to a shopping Mall. The rooms are basic and clean. There are no fridges or kettles in the room. There is a coffee and tea station in the reception. If you do not have transport or want an inexpensive place to stay, this will work for you. The staff were friendly.

If you are in the mood for rude reception, badly ventilated rooms and a terrible breakfast go to Ecotel Midrand. Yes you might save some pennies from your budget but this is not worth it here. Granted it is near a mall but that is probably the only plus. We had an terrible experience emphasized by the staff stealing from us and the owners covering up for them. I guess this is South Africa but you would expect decency from the hotel industry. That said, don't go there. It should be closed down. Dated deco and uncomfortable beds.
