Stayed here for our couple of nights in Joburg. Very fancy and trendy, clean, and in a beautiful area that felt very safe, and also close to the Rosebank Mall which was nice. The room itself was nice enough but we booked the King Suite thinking that it would be bigger or special someway, but it was just a typical hotel room with a king bed.
There were some weird things we noticed in the room:
1) It seemed like it was designed for a single person rather than a couple. There was only one set of complimentary slippers and one housecoat. There were only wall plugs on one side of the bed which was annoyed (both my husband and I use our phones as alarm clocks and need to charge them at night.)
2) There were no wall plugs at all in the bathroom, not even for a razor. The blowdryer and straightener I brought had no where to plug in in the main room close to any sort of mirror.
3) The see-through bathroom walls, ew! I think they were originally designed to be a one-way mirror where you could see out of the bathroom into the main room, but the mirror side isn't nearly strong enough and when the lights are on in the bathroom you can see right into it from the rest of the room. So gross. D:} My husband and I could have watched each other use the toilet. That was the weirdest thing I've ever seen in a hotel and the worst part of the room. We ended up just making an agreement to keep the lights dimmed to a bare minimum just enough to see, and we'd keep our eyes averted. Ew.
