      An excellent base for exploring Joburg

      We stayed here for three nights in August 2011 and had a wonderful stay. The room was newly renovated, the beds were extremely comfortable and the only complaints were our room looked out on a somewhat sketchy alley and was located very far away from the main lobby. However, the staff, amenities and overall condition of the property were all excellent. It is walking distance to several shopping areas and there are some really good restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it as a good value in the Joburg area.

      Only stayed here one night. We arrived before the advertised check-in time and were still provided with our rooms.

      Hotel has 2 pools - both set in nice garden surroundings.

      Great location - only 5 min walk to Mandela Square where you can find a whole host of restaurants.

      ... studying at home is more effective and thus take days off school, as Max did on Wednesday and, in leaving early the next day, also did on Thursday. With this in mind, the school was relatively empty on my final Friday. It became abundantly clear why many people stay away, with relatively nothing achieved in class for the entire day, a very different feeling to how I feel the day before exams. It is a completely different feeling when you realise that this is the last time you are ...

Once I arrived at the hotel, I sighed in cheer contentment...this place is so beautiful!!!! Granted I'm coming from remote Tanzania, but I think it could rival a high-end North American hotel. I was beyond excited as I discovered a rain shower head, a thick white duvet, a hair dryer, a TV, complementary tea ...

      for the next 6 hours. When I awoke my personal television told me
      that there was 2 hours left on my flight. I decided that was enough
      time to do some more sleeping and so promptly curled up again and
      continued my slumber. Thank you flight gods. Thank you path with
      heart. Thank you everyone who did not buy a ticket to fly from
      London to Joburg that night. I owe you one. ...

The only downside was when they say this is an aiport hotel they mean it. Single glazing and right under the approach of the runway made for an early morning wake up call.
