The room was very modern and beautiful. It had that wow factor. Unfortunately, it was located in a difficult part of the city, so were advised not to venture out. Location is not great.

The staff was incredible. They were very knowledgeable about the area and have great advice. I used the Park Station which can be a bit of an issue and the area is a bit sketchy after dark.

Security guys were fantastic, always keeping an eye on me outside the hotel at the adjacent mall area. The manager Thuli was also helpful and genuinely interested in her guests getting the most from their stays.
