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

It is really affordable and at a great location. 10 minutes walking to the Park Station, where you can get the Gautrain. It is also very close to Nelson Mandela Bridge and Wits University. Very simple, however modern, good and extremely affordable. If you need wi-fi, room service, printing something, you will have to pay extra, however it is still... More
