Our Features Writer Fundiswa Nkwanyana visited the newly opened hotel, Onomo Hotel in Durban. She tells us about her stay in and what the hotel has to offer the already vibrant hotel industry.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

When I travel, I prefer hotels that are within close proximity to the city centre, as well as tourist attractions and I, was pleased to see that this hotel is located near the International Convention Centre, North Beach, uShaka Marine World, and Moses Mabhida Stadium. On arrival, I was welcomed by a friendly guest relations officer who checked me in and directed me to my room.

THE ROOM

In order to get to my room, I had to use the staff elevator because the one for the guests was not working. I didn’t like that I had to squash in amongst staff members who were busy with their duties. The room was fairly sized with minimalistic décor in white, brown and black. The shower and toilet was behind stained glass doors and there were cupboards that divided the bedroom and the bathroom.  The basic bed dominated the whole room and I wished that there was a chair or a couch to sit on. However, I loved that my room was soundproof and had enough space to store my luggage.  I found the room too simple and it did not entice me to relax in it.

IN HOUSE RESTAURANT

The cafeteria styled restaurant has a comprehensive menu that offers traditional meals like steak, curry and rice, burgers and many more meals. When I ordered my food, I told the waiter that I was going to eat in my room and when my food arrived, I was not given a plate cover. I would have preferred to have my food covered to protect it and to keep it warm. When ordering my drinks, there was only one person behind the bar and it took a very long time for me to get service. I enjoyed my fairly warm food and drinks in my room.

AMBIANCE

The check-in desk is located in an open plan area that leads to a vibrant restaurant and bar with a pop of green and red coloured furniture and modern ceiling lights. After check-in, I didn’t like that I had to walk through the busy restaurant with my luggage, trying to avoid waiters with trays and patrons trying to find a table. The atmosphere throughout the hotel was very jovial and vibrant.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE

I loved that the hotel is located within walking distance to the beach where I spent most of my time. There were plenty of security personnel at night and I felt safe enough to enjoy the city night views by the outdoor terrace. I believe that this hotel is ideal for business travellers because it has a business centre and meeting facilities; it’s not for travellers that want a luxurious stay.
