The rooms are modern and have all the annuities you could possibly think about as a traveller including your very own expresso machine in your room. The only thing missing is probably rooms with balconies but who needs balconies during winter. The long walk to the lifts if your room is on the extreme end but all in all the...

Great place to place. When visiting from outside South Africa the location is secure and convenient. The shopping mall is in the same complex and the train station is nearby. The complimentary transport to the train station was a welcome relief.
