Stayed in this hotel last year, nice hotel. Other plus point of this hotel is its in comperatively safe area. Rooms are OK not that great as seen in the pictures or price you have to pay. I feel its bit too expensive.

This is a nice hotel in a decent part of town with some nice other shops and restaurants etc adjacent to it. The rooms are pretty compact but the shower was good and the bed firm.

The breakfast menu has some interesting choices on it, eg oysters, devilled chicken livers and ostrich bacon (not on the same plate, unless you so desired.....).

My second time in a year at this property and it continues to be fantastic. Love the team at the hotel. The staff are just so warm, welcoming and incredibly helpful. The hotel has a cool and contemporary vibe with all the comforts and conveniences. I needed to use the services of the travel desk on several ocassions for various transport needs for my meetings. So helpful!

The rooms are really spacious and the bed super comfortable. Turn down service is provided, which is just a wonderful touch. Free wifi with connectivity to several devices. I just loved returning to this property at the end of a long day. The location is simply the best. Easy access to Sandton, Rosebank and other parts of Joburg.

Will definitely be returning to Joburg and staying here again.

Rooms really big with wonderful bathrooms (BIG rain showers). Free wifi with (as far as I can tell) connectivity to as many devices as you need). Located in a modern upmarket shopping / restaurant area. So within 100 yards all sorts of places to wander round. Highly recommended.
