Good place to stay in Johannesburg for one night.

My friend and I will be staying in Johannesburg on an over night lay over in May. We get there mid afternoon so would like to stay someplace that has stuff close by, restaurants, bars, shopping but is convenient to the airport.

Also any recommendations on "Must See" sights that can be done with limited time?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The area around the airport is a bit soulless with very average restaurants and a big casino. I grew up nearby so I'm allowed to be mean about it :) Rather stay in Rosebank or Sandton which you can get to easily from the airport by Gautrain.

I would suggest Sandton and Rosebank that is easy to get there from the airport with the Gautrain. Sandton is 15min with the train from the airport and a lot of hotels that is walking distance from Sandton shopping mall and restaurants.

We are scheduled to arrive at Jo'burg around 7 pm on 26th May and are planning to hire a car to drive to Motswari Private Game Reserve. We need to reach the reserve by 14:00 hours. What time should we start from Jo-burg the next morning and which part of jo-burg should we stay. Should we stay near the Airport
