I enjoyed my entire stay, initially I just wanted to try it for 2 days but ended staying here for my entire one week stay. It was home away from home.

CENTRALLY LOCATED PRETORIA HOTEL

4 out of 5
by from MANCHESTER
Posted Mar 9, 2015
Pros: THE VIEW FROM MY ROOM WAS SUPERB - I WENT TO SLEEP AND WOKE UP EACH DAY WITH THE UNION BUILDINGS IN CLEAR AND COMPLETE VIEW.
Cons: THE HOTEL IS A BIT OLD BUT THEY WERE CARRYING OUT REGULAR MAINTANENCE AND REFURBISHMENT.
Location: GO TO THE PAUL KRUGER AND MELROSE HOUSE MUSEUMS IF YOU GET THE CHANCE. IT ONLY TAKES A SHORT TIME TO LOOK AROUND THEM AND THEY COST NEXT TO NOTHING.
THE HOTEL IS VIRTUALLY WALKING DISTANCE TO ALL CENTRAL PRETORIA SITES SO I MANAGED TO SEE SEVERAL MUSEUMS AS WELL AS THE LOCAL ZOO - THE GORILLAS THERE ARE MAGNIFICENT. THE HOTEL STAFF WERE VERY HELPFUL AND SORTED OUT ALLTHE SMALL ISSUES I HAD PROMPTLY AND EFFICIENTLY. THE SECURITY WAS VERY GOOD AS WELL AND I STORED MY LUGGAGE THERE FOR HALF A DAY WUTHOUT ANY CONCERNS. THE OUTSIDE BAR SERVED GOOD FOOD AND DRINKS AT VERY REASONABLE PRICES. EVEN MY LOCAL SOUTH AFRICAN HOSTS WERE IMPORESSED WITH THIS WHEN THEY TRIED IT ON MY SUGGESTION. I RECOMMEND THE STEAK SANDWICH AND FRENCH FRIES AT ONLY 59.00 ZAR. CASTLE DRAUGHT WAS ALSO ONLY 20.00 ZAR A PINT WITH OTHER SPECIAL OFFERS AS WELL.

In the short time that I've been here this time, after being here last 15 years ago, it is clear to me that Africa is truely at the center of the new world. So many things to see and do. Expedia makes it so easy.

Horrible room condition! I checked out same day

2 out of 5
by from Pretoria, South Africa
Posted Apr 19, 2014
Pros: The staff at reception were professional and welcoming
Cons: The state of the rooms is pathetic. Room size, and door-less toilets.
Location: The location at the centre of the city of Tshwane is wonderful, and strategic.
1. I checked in and checked out immediately same day because of the pathetic state of the room. The toilet was without door and next to my bed. The room was disappointingly small. Even though I had booked for 5 days, I cancelled all my bookings and checked out same day and went to the nearby Premier Hotel, Pretoria. I paid afresh at Premier Hotel Pretoria for 15 days, I ll check out on April 23, 2014. The facilities at Premier are far more superior and satisfying, worth the cash paid, R750 per night. I lost all my cash I paid for booking at Hotel 224. 2. Secondly I know Expedia to be professional, but I 've a disappointing issue with Expedia about $121 (Expedia Itinerary number: 172997884981) deducted from my credit card for a car whose reservation I had cancelled almost 5 days before. The itinerary indicates insurance in progress. I made about 10 email demands for refund, followed by about 4 telephone calls which have been haphazardly handled and no help rendered. When the cash was deducted from my credit card no telephone call was necessary. When I need my refund telephone call is needed, yet the agents pretend not to hear me. I am waiting to see if really Expedia will not refund my insurance cash for a car that did not exist in the first place.

Good morning, Thank you for sending the review of your stay at our hotel. At the outset I must apologize for the bad experience you had at our Hotel. I can assure you that all our rooms has doors on the bathroom. We were in the process of renovating our rooms and tested several options regarding the bathroom - I apologize that the front desk did not explain this to you or offered to move you to a different room. We now have serviced apartments available - the apartment rooms are more spacious than the hotel rooms. Unfortunately I can not respond on your Expedia query. Best regards Bernice
