    Breakfast and staff was amazing. Will stay again when I visit SA if the cockroaches are not there

    Only thing that was not pleasant was the tiny cockroaches all over the bathroom and coffee area.

    I liked how the front desk staff tried to manage the terrible situation

    Room service food was very bad, it looked and tasted like left overs. Breakfast was worse

    Dissapointed

    Location was good for day activities only

    First impression was the condition of the building, very outdated, very inconvenient ascent of stair from parking lot with all the luggage. Internet never worked in room, even after getting vouchers from staff. Bathroom had moss on floors and outside furniture was disgusting. The breakfast room staff kicked us out when requesting a cup of juice 30 mim before opening due to an early tour we had. Overall very dissapointed.

    The bedding and alacarte breakfast.

    Allocation of rooms is very poor. You find given a room which is already accupied by someone.
