Perfect stay by far

Security, cleanliness and friendly staff
This was a perfect holiday for the kids and we feel it will be our ritual place every year when we visit Durban. It would also be nice to own a room or so for regular holidays and also because I'm a regular business visitor in Durban

It was our 2nd visit and we will return

location, staff, comfort
We came back to the Benjamin because our first stay a year earlier was great. They did not disappoint. The location couldn't be better, and although there is some noise from the bars outside (mostly Fri and Sat night), we were able to shut it out by just closing the windows. The staff is friendly, courteous and professional. Breakfast was ample and always good. We will be booking again on our next visit.

Good place to stay in Durban

Location and some of the staff
All in all, this is a very good choice of accommodation to stay in Durban. The street it is located is apparently a social nightlife area and has many restaurants and bars. The downside is that by Thursday, I can hear the thumping of a heavy house music from my room, although it is not very loud (thankfully). The hotel is charming and the staff, in general, are friendly and so e are very nice and helpful (not all). The room is in need of a good cleaning with perhaps new carpets and a good renovation. The carpet in my room does not smell very nice and the French window does not close well. The bed is comfortable and the wifi does work well. Despite little hiccups, it is a good, recommendable place to stay. The best point of the hotel is the staff at reception.

Safe area and good service

Location, Food/Dining, Staff performance
It was a lovely stay at the Benjamin. My husband & I walked up Florida road to have dinner at Spiga D'oro Italian restaurant. It was safe and we enjoyed it. The staff at the Benjamin were kind and friendly and breakfast was amazing. The only negative thing was the room that we stayed in was far too small and not value for money.

Location, staff and personality
Almost perfect! Yes as others have said there is noise from the street mostly on fri and sat night but if you close the window you are pretty good. Our visit was exceptional and we will be booking again for our next trip

It was lovely and the staff were very accomodating

Breakfast, location, design
It was lovely. The only thing - there was a bit of damp in the room (I forgot to mention to management) - so when we came in, we were hit with a wiff!! otherwise - absolutely great!
