Hello tsametse,

Thank you for your comments. I will pass it on the our team. The complimentry shuttle is one of the ways we try and make it easier for our guests to get around in the city centre. Please make use of it to go to the Gautrain station next time when you visit us.

Regards,

I really, really liked this place. Unlike some places in the same neighborhood, the staff will bend over backwards to help you out. The price is reasonable for what you get; it's nice value for the money. The rooms are spacious and aesthetically pleasing, the beds super comfy, and you get plenty of channels on the TV. Also, each room has a kitchenette ... which is generally unnecessary if you're there in the short term, because why cook when there's an open-late room service menu, EXCELLENT restaurant downstairs, and several other good restaurants within 2 blocks walking distance?

Only complaints: the hallways are kind of drab - sounds like a weird thing to complain about, but when you're there, walking to your room feels like trudging through a factory. Also, the rooms don't have wireless, but complimentary LAN cables are available from the front desk. You get logged on eventually, but it limits your mobility a bit.

Overall, though, would DEFINITELY recommend, or stay here the next time I'm passing through Jozi.

Good morning Meg H,

Thank you for your review and sharing your experience with us. I will pass it on to the team ! For your next stay you can look forward to an upgraded LAN system in so far as speed and ease of connectivity. We could not go the WiFi route as the building use to be an old bank. With all the reinforced concrete we cannot get the WiFi to offer a stable connection throughout the hotel. Thus the LAN upgrade !

Looking forward to welcome you back at Faircity Mapunguwbe !

Regards,

Travelled to SA for a work trip and initially based in this hotel near the "Miners Mile" in the heart of Jo'Burg City. The hotel features a nice restaurant and good gym and pool facilities. The rooms are really good featuring their own kitchen in case you have enough of the restaurant downstairs. The draw back is the location - after hours not much to do but get in the car and head for another area of Jo'Burg. Weekends very quiet in the immediate area.

The hotel was excellent. Rooms were large and clean. My room had a small kitchen wherein I could make my instant noodles, etc. whenever I wanted to. And staying in a hotel that allows me to walk to the office is one of the best ideas.

I rcently stayed at the Mapungubwe hotel in Joburg during a recent business trip. The hotel was excellent, the rooms were large and very clean, the overall service was excellent. The restaurant served excellent local food, but fir the less adventurous there were basic meals to, with a great burger on the menu. My one reservation is with the location, it was a very rough area, which was confirmed by my clinets wh were astounded that we were staying in 'downtown Joburg', but we survived the trip and cannot thank the staff of the hotel enough for their hospitality..

Room Tip: Be on the first 2 floors as you have to take different lifts to get to higher floors.

As a traveller from outside of Johannesburg staying in a hotel that allows me to walk to the office is one of the best ideas since sliced bread. I don't have to face traffic nor attempt to drive in city center myself.

The hotel is clean and beautiful decorated. Staff friendly and the Twist restaurant has the BEST chicken wrap I have ever had before. In my opinion this hotel is for business travellers that need to visit the corporate offices in that area. I have walked to the office now many times and did not feel unsafe once. As a business traveller has no need for evening entertainment.

Just one failure of attention to detail in the rooms: there are no electrical plug close to a mirror and as a female going to a corporate work environment that is frustrating. And with my last visit this past week the staff could not assist with a round two point plug for the hair dryer in the room. The hotel has ten of these adapters and they were all issued to rooms. Silly problem since ther rest of the setup is so classy. Not a good enough reason not to use the hotel again, but I will go better prepared next time :).

I was sceptic to be located in the inner city of Johannesburg. These were no go areas a couple of years ago. What a surprise to see the regeneration of the area that took place. I thought I was stuck there on a weekend after a hectic week of business in the city. How wrong I could be. Excellent food market on Saturday and Sunday. Easy to reach as the hotel offers a free shuttle to these markets. The Historical Inner City walk was a 2 hour leisure walk through the inner city on a Sunday moring just after breakfast. Well worth it!

Room Tip: Room 323 must be the best. Corner unit with double windows. Very quiet, close to the lift. Sunny in...
