Johannesburg's best kept secret: the Hamilton is the best venue in Johannesburg for an intimate business conference. The setting is tranquil and conducive to creativity and the food, refreshments and service is of international standard.

I loved my stay. Comfy, convenient, clean. The staff were incredibly friendly. I felt so safe staying here and treated like a queen! The rooms were so beautiful. The bath was huge and general cleanliness was very good. The bed was so comfortable. Wifi was fast and food fabulous.

We recently used the Hamilton for one of our speakers who was coming in from Cape Town. The Hamilton assisted us will all from the start and ensured everything we required was arranged professionally and with a smile.

Loved staying at The Hamilton whilst on business in JHB, I am from Cape Town. I found the location to be great as it was near Sandton and close to major roads. Small, quaint but very neat. I did have dinner at the Hotel for three nights in a row and it was great. The chef Violet was so sweet... More

The Hamilton has great service, modern rooms and clean finishes. With the perfect location in JHB's leafy north its the perfect fit between a professional hotel and a personal B&B. Its the perfect spot for the business traveler.

Well balanced design, exceptionally considered aesthetic, the most lovely stay-over experience in Johannesburg from the friendly staff, to the made-from-scratch food to the appeal of location and attention to every visual detail. At a price that's reasonable.

I often travel to Johannesburg on business and this has become my favourite venue for accommodation in the city. The staff are highly professional, friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is just right and I love the architecture and general design of the hotel. It is also perfectly situated, in my opinion, between the business district of Sandton and the awesome...

A neat, modern, small and funky property - with only 6 bedrooms. Very good if somewhat simple breakfast, lovely good quality sheets on the beds. I missed a desk in the room to work on. Great position and many good restaurants nearby. My only criticism is that the ironing of my laundry was the worst I have ever experienced. However,... More

Spent four nights in connection with a busy schedule of back to back meetings in Joburg. A great base to have meetings, to work and to Uber into Joburg. Good, tasty food, flexible meal hours, spacious rooms 3 & 4, quiet neighbourhood, and helpful staff - especially Violet who personifies good service. Only minor points of improvement: wifi too unstable... More
