Yes they are very accommodating. Just tell them when you book and I'm sure they will be able to arrange for you.

Hello! There is a big avenue very close to the hotel (like...300 meters), is the same avenue that passes by The Johannesburg Botanic Garden. I didn't use any public transportation, but i imagine there is on this avenue (Beyers Naudé Dr). I used the tuk-tuk for close destinations, that is also very close to the hotel. Hope I've been helpful =)
