My husband and I stayed for a one-week break at the Hotel Benjamin in January 2020, after attending professional activities in Johannesburg. Highlights of this hotel include: a great breakfast menu in a lovely indoor patio; a "period" decorated bedroom with modern conveniences, quiet and larger than most hotel rooms, with a king bed. It is on a lively street in a nice Durban neighborhood. There are good choices of restaurants from bar food to elegant table menus, safe to walk to at night. Each staff member warmly greeted us every day and provided good service in an unobtrusive style. The hotel has several equipped rooms for small and larger business meetings. I have always loved the style of this charming hotel and will return to it as often as possible. By the way, the hotel

I stayed at this hotel for three days and was satisfied with every aspect of my stay. The staff was helpful and friendly (I read that someone wasn't that pleased with their reception experience but the issue must have been resolved as the service I experienced there was perfect). Also very happy with the wifi. Will use this hotel again when in Durban.

I think a revamp/modernising of the rooms would go some way to making this establishment even better than it currently is. Additionally, adding limited room service would be useful as well, albeit there are plenty of food places around.

The Benjamin is an oasis in this increasingly noisy street. The staff are exemplary and undoubtedly one of the hotel's greatest assets. Sadly, Florida Road has become a magnet for loud, antisocial revelers, who vie with each other for honors in noise and bad parking. The Benjamin is such an asset to Morningside that it should not be forced to surrender to this trend.
