Generally, this is a pretty good hotel with easy access to and from O.R Tambo Airport; via the train station across the street. Helpful and friendly staff. Majority of tours would pick you up at this location. The only con is that I believe that this hotel is a bit overpriced.

The pluses: Conveniently located in front of the Gautrain and 5-min walk from Sandton city. Spacious room and comfy bed.Friendly staff in general. The minuses: Lacklustre breakfast spread, which I was told at check in was included in my fee rate but ended up being charged for it separately. Not good value for R175! Room service is also too expensive...

Very easy to get to if you are visiting JBH. Just catch the gautrain and the hotel is just across the sandton gautrain station. The Nelson Mandela Square is 5 walking minutes away and you can walk it safely. Very good choice, also considering the rates you can normally get online.
