No towels
No floor mat outside the shower
Matchbox room (extremely small) - once you put your bags down you cant move?
No lift for 2 floors
You still have to pay R150 per night for parking despite being a paying client?
The view that was advertised and what we saw were two completely different things

I checked out of the hotel 2 hours after arriving. It was still under construction and nothing like the pictures posted. Perhaps it will eventually look like the images advertised, but for now it is false advertising.

Very small room. No proper draws to leave your cloths. The shower water takes very long to run down the drain. The lift goes only to 5th floor need to walk up to 7th floor if u get a room there. Only good is the area

• Staff who were friendly and kind but it took three requests on three separate occasions to get towels 
• My room was on a site street so music played from Long until 3:30 - no sleep
• The room was very hot - open windows meant music
• No insulation in ceiling apparently
• No actual cupboard - (shelf and hanger in bathroom)
The mayor disappointment is that the rate suggested a standard along with the images on the site, which also suggests and standard and size - this is BS.

This is not apparent and I will not be recommending your hotel.

Not even the rate constitutes a reasonable offer on your part.

And it’s a building site. Noise, Dust, Rubble, did I say Dust.
