I booked a double with private bathroom on HW but I got a twin & no private bathroom - blatant misleading advertising on HW - they only offered R20 discount off price of R160! The room was stark and the doors to the balcony didn't lock either. They were pushy with tour sales and charged 20-25% more than other places. Staff tried to book an expensive airport shuttle and not a taxi that I asked for. They only want to make money and were rude. Also the internet only worked in the reception area!
Great place to stay. The location is great - close to Gloria metro station, and about a 10-minute walk from Santa Teresa, which is also a nice area. The staff were very friendly and always available to help.
