Obviously in Jo'burg is good to stay in Sandton area and this hotel could be very good deal, which was for me. Very clean, modern, stylish, good value for money, breakfast was real treat.
There is but...usage of internet on their computers was the most expensive rate I have ever paid. That said, you expect that internet connection is working all the time, but no...server was down.
I gave them phone number of the agent to call and book me a trip to Soweto, which actually they offered to do on my behalf, no response the other day. And suddenly they found other agent who did this for the same price but twice shorter (half day trip instead of full day trip). They don't have any taxi number in hotel, but the agency they work with and of course, they charge much more lying to guest that the price is same as taxi, which is not (all covering with safety issues).
This type of hotel shouldn't contract only one transport agency.
Local mobile calls are charged as international...even though it is not written in manual.
So I guess, earning money aside and "cheating" guests is normal if you know how to explain guest why this is good for him/her.
Stay here, but don't rely on additional services even if they offer to you.
