My partner and I stayed at this hotel after spending 25 days travelling through Africa. We could not have stayed at a better place. It was all of the things you would look for in a hotel in Johannesburg; in a lovely area, very safe, clean and practical, but then it was also so much more. The décor was beautiful, the room was clean and comfortable, so much so that I found it difficult to leave. The manager (Karen) was fantastic. She was extremely helpful, which was demonstrated when she drove us to the Gautrain station in her own car to ensure that we knew where we were going and then refused any money for her troubles. I can easily sum up this review, If you are visiting Johannesburg, STAY AT THIS HOTEL! You will not be dissappointed with any aspect of the Hands on Retreat.
p.s. The breakfasts are very tasty!
