Rose petals scattered on your pillow
Characterful seven-room budget-boutique hotel in former 1890s brothel next to Bean Bag Bohemia in Durban’s gentrified Morningside neighborhood. Morocco-meets-New Orleans décor; turn-down service includes a sprinkling of rose petals. Gay-owned but all are welcome. Some rooms have triple occupancy (queen bed plus a single). All rooms have bathrooms, wi-fi; air conditioning. Since the restaurant and bar are right next door, don't expect monastic quiet. Breakfast (included) in fountain courtyard; room service available from BBB. Rooms R450-1,200/night depending on single, double or triple occupancy. Online bookings accepted, though the website itself is out of date.

    Not the average guest house. Lots of atmosphere. Very laid back. Staff very friendly. An once in a lifetime experience. Ideal for the Bohemian traveler.
