It is not a hotel - its a hostel, with a paint job

The staff was super nice. And the decor was cool.
1. No internet. Had to sit on the floor of the lobby to use internet - this meant I was approached by people wandering in off the street at night. Not good. Also, who doesnt have internet? And who doesnt offer a partial refund if the internet is down? 2. Security - the doors were flimsy, the handle was falling off ours. Not secure. 3. No A/C! 4. Bathrooms - the toilet and the shower were just there, in the middle of the room. No privacy. That may not bother everyone but it bothered me. 5. Staff - they were very nice. However they did not arrange the airport transfers they promised. This place is completely overrated. If it was half the price, and you want a hostel with cool decor, then ok.

Not what I expected

Location staff style
Overall - it was ok. There is no toilet in the room. I assume it was in the fine print but I wrongly assumed there was a full washroom. There was a shower and a shared toilet down the hall. The room was clean but walls paper thin. It was inexpensive but I stated at a cheaper place down the road that had all amenities and was less money. No wifi in the rooms either, used it while sitting on the step outside.

Worst hotel I have ever stayed

I booked & paid for 5 nights through online reservation system. I left the hotel very second day morning, and found some other hotel. I had to let go the money I paid. Very disgusting hotel - small rooms, NO TOILETS in room, too much mosquitos, NO WIFI, very basic breakfast.

Is an old building, it transform into nice design.

Great location, nice breakfast, clean room and nice staffs.
Great location, nice breakfast, clean room and nice staffs. Is an old office building and it transform into boutique hotel. It only have few room at moment is under up grading. It have an old lift stopping won't be nice. It have a great design from lobby, walkway breakfast place and room allin black and white. If you don't mine, some of the room don't have TV and toilet. So have to use a common toilet outside. Because is an old office building owner not permit to hack down. Is only disadvantage of the room.

Unique and enjoyable

Good location, Friendly staff, Beautiful decor
It is a small boutique hotel with friendly staff and a beautiful interior design. We had the deluxe room which had a ensuite toilet, or rather the toilet was within the same room. The other rooms had an external toilet but the whole floor was pretty private. Right next to Greenmarket square and long street, so early in the morning the setting up of the stalls made quite a lot of noise and in the middle of the night some ?drunks occasionally made quite a lot of noise, but nothing serious or to worry about. Enjoyed our stay and the lovely staff at the Glam made it even more enjoyable. I would recommend staying here unless you plan to walk back late at night when the city centre is quite dangerous.

chambres tres romantiques et design

le design des chambres est superbe
Les seuls problèmes de cet hotel sont : les WC dans la chambre (ou sur le palier suivant le prix) et l'absence de wifi (possibilité d'accéder gratuitement à Internet au RDC). Sinon, les chambres sont superbes et le personnel attentif...

・全ての内装やインテリアが黒と白で統一されていてオシャレ ・清掃係の方が常に清掃していてとてつもなく清潔 ・部屋にヒーターあり
ヨハネスブルクからの長距離バス(グレイハウンド)が到着した場所から歩いて〜10分くらいでした。 スタッフの方はとても親切で、室内も大きな鏡があったりとってもオシャレです。 ただwifiが室内や部屋のある2階で使えません。一階のフロントか同じく一階のネットカフェのwifiを無料で使えます。が、とても小さなフロントの目の前でwifiを使うのは居心地が悪いです。 部屋か部屋のある二階でwifiが使えたらいいのに…と思い別の宿に移りました。 部屋は二階に5部屋しかなく静まり返って少し怖いくらいでした。私が宿泊した部屋は隣部屋との壁が薄くとなりの人のため息も聞こえます。 部屋にシャワーはありますが、ガラス張りなのでカップル向けでしょうか。
