The Bannister Hotel is an independant, luxury-budget hotel in Braamfontein, Johannesburg. Across Mandela Bridge from the inner-city, the district is one of the most exciting area of Johannesburg for artists, foodies (we are opposite The Neighbourgoods Market), hipsters, musicians (The Orbit Jazz Club is 30m away!), academics & many of Joburg's corporate and government head offices. The hotel and our restaurant and bar are casual, warm and welcoming, a second home to our regular guests. If you are seeking the exciting experience that Johnnesburg and it's people can be, The Bannister Hotel is the key to unlocking the true vibrancy of the Africa's most 'woke' city. There are a number of great bars and places to eat in the immediate neighbourhood. We are also close several galleries, theaters, museums & the cities transport networks.
