No such thing as a "reasonably priced 4/5 Star hotel" ( depending on your definition of "Reasonable", of course!

Which attractions are you interested in?

Johannesburg is a very spread out city, having a larger "footprint" than London , so almost everything is some distance from everything else! ;-)

I do not know what is reasonable but suburbs that you can look at are Sandton and Rosebank for good hotels and restaurants. Radison Blu Gautrain and Garden Court Sandton City are nice hotels and are walking distance from the station, shopping malls and restaurant.

Rosebank you can have a look at the Holiday Inn, Courtyard hotel next to the Gautrain station. Both suburbs are safe and very popular.

Zoos are not really an attraction in South Africa.

It is home to some of the most wonderful wildlife in the world, not caged in zoos but actually in game reserves out in the bush where the wildlife can be viewed in its natural state.

As you are visiting Africa please do try to visit the big game parks way out of Johannesburg rather than anywhere that keeps animals caged.

Hello, there are a few options:

Sandton - look at Garden Court West Street, or Garden Court Katherine Street. There are other hotels but i think this will fit your price range.

Fourways - here there is a large complex called Montecasino. It has a few hotels: City Lodge and Sunsquare. They are both on the perimeter of the complex, and it is close to Fourways shopping mall, Design Quarter which has open air restaurants, Theatres, cinemas. Leaping Frog which has bars, Billie the Bums which is a pool hall. So plenty to do here, young crowd, very vibey.

You can take the Gautrain to Sandton, then take their bus out to Fourways.
