The decor in the whole hotel is fascinating. Think Audrey Hepburn and old actors splattered all over the hotel in a lovely way. The room was lovely, staff was helpful and friendly, breakfast was great . The location was excellent. I was on a tour and this hotel was convenient to stores, restaurants, pharmacy.

I have returned home (the Republic of South Africa) after a 25 month assignment to an oversees office of the firm that I am working for and I am very fortunate to stay in the hotel until I move back into my private residence. The hotel/room has actually become home for me. The personnel are very friendly, greet one with a big smile and always want to hear what one's day was like. The attention does not stop there either, the breakfast chef by now knows that i prefer a poached egg for breakfast and by the third morning, while I was about to finish my yoghurt he came to my table with a poached egg, big smile and "Mam, I hope this is not forward, but I made you your poached egg. I don't want you to stand and wait for it'....now that is home and excellent service. My room is kept in an immaculate state, without looking clinical as they do not disturb my personal things. A real pleasure to stay and a very hearty African "welcome back home" Read less

In a good, safe location, lots of shops and restaurants around. The decor is quite dated and the rooms could do with some TLC. Food is fairly average but staff are friendly and helpful. Fine for a business trip.

The layout of the room rather strange just having a curtain between the shower & the bed especially when sharing with a friend in a twin room. Interesting décor - probably 1950's film stars is not to everyone's taste. Good buffet breakfast. Read less
