What we liked about Best Western Aida Marais

Very good service at this hotel.   We enjoyed our stay.  For the price we had a nice room.  A good location as it is walking distance from the North and East train stations.   We heard quite a bit of noise from within the hotel, but the windows prevented any outside noise.       

The hotel was clean and practical if slightly off the beaten track. It was however being refurbished with increase noise levels. The street was noisy in the morning. Staff standards were extremely variable good during the day and not so good at night. The fire alarm was activated twice during a four day stay and the staff competance in managing the process was very poor. No effort was made to ensure the hotel was evacuated and no effort to compare guest list with those making the effort to comply. This was a major fail in terms of health and safety       

The price was excellent value; however we were allocated an interior room on the ground floor (window onto a roofed-in patio) and we were disturbed in the *very* early morning (?4am) by loud conversation in the lobby which continued for at least 30 minutes. Beds comfortable, but on  rollers on a shiny floor which meant they moved as one turned over in bed.  Breakfast (not included in the room price) was *excellent* value at 12 euros, and the breakfast room was very pleasant. Would return, but not to a room in that part of the hotel.
