        Rude reception. Demanded more money. ”

        Greeted warmly, but turned cold when he realized Agoda under quoted, costing him his commission. Demanded cancelation and upgrade to a higher price. Kept me in the lobby whilst dithering with management via his mobile. Begrudgingly gave me my key eventually after I stood firm. I wonder how often this happens to tourists who are held ransom to higher fees. Questionable business etiquette. Rooms had no soap. Didn't expect much for the price, but that kind of attitude from staff is a disgrace.

        Absolutely nothing stood out Whatever pics was shown it's not the same. There was no shampoo or shower gel in the shower No remote control for the TV I was unable to sit on the toilet due to a wooden box fixed to the side of the wall. The roof was leaking in the toilet. No soap was given ... The pillows that I slept on is for babies of 9 months old and not for adults. I booked a room with a large bed that was on the website I had to walk up to room for two flight of stairs.and I have knees problems .. I dont think I will recommend the hotel to my colleagues at work and myself won't book again for the experience I encountered

        The rudest receptionist I have ever come across. His name is Petros and I even doubt he's in the country legally. I can tell for sure that he's a foreigner. If that guy stays there, happy rhino hotel will lose a lot of business.

        On check I only said my name and was given a key to the room.no explanation of how and what to expect. The lifts were not working and there was dust and webs in lifts.smell of the paint was so strong. On booking we requested a big bed but that was not what we request or even explanation that there was non available.

        It's a very neat and clean place. The staff is also very helpful, location is everything.”

        The single rooms also need to have a full length mirror in them and the hotel needs to do something about the wet floors when it rains, I understand it's under construction but the wet floors could cause serious injury. Plus an extra blanket wouldn't hurt considering the fact that winter is very cold in Cape town plus a remote for the TV and cutlery was forgotten in my room. This is just a reminder I reckon they were in the rush to get the room ready I wasn't really bothered but some travellers might be.

        A eviter”

        Avantage: bien situe dans un quartier anime Inconvenients:: - je n'ai pas eu la chambre demandee(avec vue montagne) mais une chambre avec vue ville ou plutot "rue" ce qui change tout en raison de la nature du qurtier evoquee plus haut - la chambre etait exposee plein soleil et le ventilateur ne fonctionnait pas. Je l'ai signale 3 fois mais rien n'a ete fait, ce qui m'a oblige a laisser la fenetre ouverte la nuit et a supporter le bruit de la rue - la conception meme de la chambre est surprenante avec une cuvette wc sans separation - le personnel est particulierement inefficace. Les serviettes de toilette ont ete oubliees 2 fois et la cle electronique a due etre remise a jour 2 fois. Endroit a eviter
