There is Wi-Fi throug... Read more

Ok. Good location, nice service, decent room. Hotel seems to be a little old, but this is not an issue. Wifi could be a little better as well. Shuttle services to the Nelson Mandela Square do work fine.

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. Good gym and two swimming pools which are set in lovely gardens.The attached Bull Run restaurant was great and right next door. Safe and easy to walk to Nelson Mandela Square. Bar was really good too, lot of history in the place. Ryan the barman was a great guy.
