Stayed 2 nights in room 211. Rooms are basic, but modern, compact, with open washrooms. Was advised this was a quiet room not facing street, however there was noise from people on street. Good location for access to Origins Museum, Newtown, Gautrain. Room was non-smoking, but smoke smell evident in hallway occasionally. Wifi available at cost in lobby. Additional 50/day... More

Dear Guest Thanks for taking the time to post your review of our hotel. I am sorry you were disturbed by street noise. Our location is in a predominantly student area , as we are close to the Wits University , and comes 'alive' during the evenings particularly weekends. Aside from that we're delighted that you could experience our Simple... More

The rooms in this hotel are small and simple, fine if you are on a budget and want to be centrally located in Johannesburg. There isn't a sitting area in your room, and the washroom is fully open to the bedroom which was fine for a solo traveler. The hotel is located in up and coming Braamfontein, which has lots... More

We had a very pleasant stay in the Easyhotel. It is located in a vibrant part of Johannesburg, lots of little places for a coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very nearby is a great pizza place (86 public), so no need to go far when it is dark in the evening. The rooms were clean, very modern design. The only... More

Lovely no thrills, no frills hotel in the heart of Joburg CBD. Proximity to many fast food chains like McDonalds, KFC, Wimpy, Nandos etc, as well as shopping malls. Easy Hotel is also just a cheap taxi drive away from many of the attractions in Joburg. The Park Train station (Gautrain) is also a walking distance away. The rooms are... More

Ever since I found this place a year ago I make it my business to stay here. It's a quick jump to Soweto and anywhere for that matter thanks to the Gautrain and the numerous taxi ranks near by. In the middle of Braamfontein it affords access to some of the new hip restaurants, bars and clubs that are a... More

One of the budget friendly hotels in Johannesburg that offer the basics in a nice way. There is little customer service and don't pamper you like five star hotels but the room I stayed in was big, warm for the winter, had to pay extra for cleaning. Particularly liked the level of privacy given and the close proximity to CBD... More

Easy hotel has a great location in the middle of rapidly renewing Braamfontein. You can walk to lots of attractions and places: Constitution Hill, JoBurg theater, Wits University, the main train station and much more, and it's a lot safer than it used to be. The hotel is simple, elegant and no-fuss. No frills: no in-room dining or laundry so... More

Extremely well priced rooms that are spartan but clean and have everything a budget traveller needs including international power adapters. Well located on De Korte Street in Braamfontein across the road from the Branson centre and with a bar underneath that opens up to a courtyard of three other restaurants. The markets are also a two minute walk as are... More

Rooms are OK (nothing special), with minimal space, but modern and well-designed. The location is good as it is in the city centre, but the staff cannot give any information on things to do (e.g. I was looking for a gym). Besides, the music from the club downstairs is extremely disturbing. Internet (which you pay for) does not work in... More
