It is pointless making an online booking (with a booking confirmation number) at this place because when you get there, the room is booked out. Not enough parking. You have to park in the school opposite.

Good location although the city is a little unsafe. It’s a 15 minutes walk from Union Buildings and another 15 minutes on the other way to Church Square. Rooms are tiny as well as the bathroom, but complete. Good breakfast, business style. In brief, good cost-benefit analysis.

Nice hotel that provides in most everything the business traveller need. The rooms are compact and sufficient. The bathroom-toilet small, but also sufficient for the sole traveller. Beverages provided in the room is super. The dining room is beautiful, though somewhat to the small side considering the number of guests it needs to accommodate. The staff is particularly friendly and... More

The staff is very friendly, uncomplicated and helpful. Rooms are quite small, but fully o.k. The relationship between price and money is definitely in order (good value for money), the hotel is well located in the city.
