The magic begins the minute you set foot in this beautiful mansion. As the most unique five star, boutique hotel in Johannesburg, "The View", is aptly named due to the panoramic vista it provides of the city. Its location provides a tranquil oasis amidst the bustle of greater Johannesburg. A gem to the core, by night The View allows for fine, alfresco dining in its restaurant overlooking the millions of sparkling lights reflecting the vibrant life of Africa's industrial and commercial capital. Additionally, guests to The View can luxuriate in our extensive and immaculately groomed, private terraced gardens. With soft lighting completing their beauty, the gardens come alive on summer nights with live orchestral music and song.

Lovely accom- staff tried but in terms of our expectations taking into account what we paid the standards were not acceptable. Simple things like missing light bulbs in the room for the price. It is not enough to just have 'friendly' staff I am afraid.

Hi Bianca, Thank you for your query. Please can you email us on with your arrival time and flight details. Would require a transfer from the airport. We will then also arrange an early check-in for you. Kind regards, The View Team.
