Rooms are dated and drab.Aircons antiquated. Noisy passages,doors banging till late night..Rooms not sound proof to outside noises. Drywalling plays a role and door seals.Small bottle water in room,no mini bar.Food and kitchen /dining staff excellent.Basin in bathroom smells from drain clogged..not sure I would book in there again.Always an issue when checking in or out..

I arrived late at night from Cape Town for an early morning flight out of Johannesburg. The reception staff were friendly and attentive at check in. The best thing about this hotel is their beds. The moment you sit on the bed you know you are going to have a good nights sleep, amazingly comfortable with great soft duvet and...

I stayed here one night and I thought the place was really nice. One issue, the noise from the lobby floats up a few floors as it is an open concept. The noise filters right into your room if you are close the area. Another issue, a bit pricey, but it is worth being close to the airport if you...

It seems they have washed the carpet in my room as there was a very musty smell - The entrance door to the room...

An excellent choice for a stopover in Johannesburg. Hotel staff were courteous and welcome. Our room was clean and roomy and meet our expectations. The breakfast and dinner facilities were top shelf. The shuttle service to and from the terminal was was easy to find and the service frequent.

Always our go to Hotel when in J'burg. The place is clean, rooms great, meals are worth waiting for and the staff very friendly and always willing to help. The souvenir shop has great variety and very well priced. For business trips or as a family hotel, it is well worth it and good value for money. Definitely recommended.
