Great business class hotel in great convenient neighborhood. Friendly staff, always. On-site dining & great suburban restaurants nearby. Value for anyone used to paying in Dollar$ or Euro, without giving up the comforts you want.

Great rooms, clean and service with a big smile. The Hotel is not really ideally located from Johannesburg but was ok for me as I had a great limousine service provided by the hotel, not too cheap but good value for money. Free transfer to the nearby shopping center.

Not the cheapest Hotel in Jhb (especially if you take their breakfast into consideration) but still a comfortable. We stayed in a suite which had more than enough space, very nice lounge area and bathroom. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Close to buss routes, but if you're from out of town, consider renting a car.
