Spent three nights a a guest. It is a lovely, small hotel located behind security gates in Kempton Park near the airport. The rooms are comfortable and spotless. The decor, and I think I am coining a new phrase, is Afro-eclectic and pleasing to my eye. The staff is professional, dedicated and most helpful. The problem for me was that there is no easy way to get anywhere in Joburg. Part of the problem is the city itself. It is soooo spread out. The taxi system is complicated and there is no other mass transportation system available. The only option is private transportation which, while excellent, is quite expensive. The only restaurant in close proximity is located in the hotel. Food and service were very good but selections are limited.
