In this day and age where the other side of the world is only a plane trip away, finding a decent place to stow your bags can make or break your trip; like biting into your doughnut and realizing it’s only sugared when what you really wanted was jam-filled. See what a home-away-from-home is supposed to be like and spend a night (including an English breakfast) at Premiere Classe for only R365.
Most people have their share of hotel horror-stories, like ‘boutique’ rooms without enough space to squeeze between the bed and the couch. At Premiere Classe, you’ll never again need to ask why there’s a couch and a desk in the bedroom, because the self-catering apartments include both a bedroom and a lounge. They also have a fully functioning kitchenette, so there’s no need to hassle with the automated, overpriced mini-bars stocked with obscure products like carob-coated, peach & currant soy-protein bars (and occasionally socks). Even if you’re not the cooking type, they won’t let you forget the most important meal of the day, delivering an English breakfast straight to your room.
While free internet access at hotels can be as slow as a sloth swimming upstream in winter, the same cannot be said for Premiere Class, which provides reliably fast wireless internet in each apartment. They also come with MNet and 5 DSTV channels for when the thought of missing the next episode of your favourite soap sends you into fits of terror.
If you’re the type that likes to go out and see the town, the apartments are conveniently located near all the major entertainment areas. It’s perfect whether you’re travelling for business or merely the pleasure of being able to say, “Hey, I’ve been there!”
Hotel Fact: The earliest hotels consisted of nothing more than a caravan of covered wagons, often ‘parked’ outside of the local church.
