Photos on the web site is not a true reflection of what we intended to see especially not being specific about toilet and bathroom. So disappointing to come and realize that toilet and bathroom is shared among guests
choo choo train”
it is what it is, a budget accommodation. saying that we enjoyed the experience although you could hear other guests moving around.
Best sea view hotel”
It's the best sea view lodge but would recommend just for one night in order to experience something different.
Not what we expected”
We love to travel by train, preferably sleepers. This is a train with noisy carraige doors, very noisy stiff compartment doors & slippy seats to sleep on which were also hard. The security gates do not close automatically so they were left open most of the time with workers from the nearby port walking by. They need to improve the noise levels it was difficult to sleep.
Staying on the train was so much fun that we came back for a second night. The first night was in the luxury compartment with a huge bed and private bath. The second night we stayed in the regular compartments with a shared bath. Both were great, different, but both were fun. We had sea views and the adjacent restaurant served great food and was very convenient. A nice way to experience what traveling on a train might be like and have the convenience of getting off whenever. The staff at both the train and the restaurant were exceptionally gracious and nice.
Fast check-in. Good view of the sea. No heater for cold nights and no towels. Would appreciate if the c/o can be later at 11am so guests can enjoy a longer walk by the beach after breakfast and pack up.
Deluxe Train to Nowhere!”
The idea of staying on a classic old train next to the sea certainly attracted us. Such a great idea and so comfortable. At night the sounds of the sea brushing the shoreline, plus the clear morning sky early the day we stayed meant that we could see the International Space Station fly over, in all its glory, (we know it was coming and when) on one of its flights over South Africa. And then there was the breakfast ... amazing. It's a wonder we ever checked out to leave.
The Royal suite was very comfortable and great fun. A reminder of more comfortable days. I recommend staying there.
Location - best”
Our stay was great - location is awesome, just off great beach. Room was comfortable for the type of accommodation we had.
Roaring waves ”
we enjoyed our stay at the Santos Express and would like to visit again. We will be telling our friends and family about it.
Nice sea view”
This place is ok for 1 max 2 nights. There is bigger space in a twin room than a double bed room. The sheets are clean and the shared shower is good. The toilette is a bit small. The wifi is poor and you better take some pocket lamp with you since generally in SA sometime they have some electricity black out.
Cette nuit est une expérience, idéalement placé le train est face à la mer, les chambres sont dans les cabines donc la taille est bien sûr petite mais ça fait partie du truc ! Beaucoup de rangements on s’y retrouve très bien. Les douches sont chaudes et avec de la pression très grande salle de bain commune. Le personnel est gentil, le lieu très sécurisé, petit déjeuné un peu léger mais pour le prix on comprend. Bref très agréable nous reviendrons si nous passons dans le coin.
Einfache und gute Unterkunft um ein paar Strandtage zu verbringen. Wenn möglich die Royalsuite buchen.
Super Unterkunft, dank kostenlosem Upgrade ”
Bekamen ein kostenloses Upgrade in die Royal Suite. Diese bestand aus einem halben Zugwaggon. War einfach super!! Leider konnten wir nur eine Nacht bleiben...
Tolle Erfahrung, tolle Lage, unbequeme Betten”
Wirklich nette Erfahrung. Vll nicht mehr als eine Nacht, da die Betten nicht so toll sind und die Zimmer recht klein.
Wer Abwechslung sucht ”
Wir mieteten 2 Räume nebeneinander , das Personal war sehr nett , jedoch sind die Betten sehr hart , man teilt sich die Toilette wie in einem Zug mit anderen Passagieren und der Zug ist nicht direkt am Sand sondern durchtrennt durch einen Zaun und Bäume versperren die Sicht zum Meer . Es ist etwas für Bagpacker
Leuke plek voor een goede prijs ”
