This hotel could be really Marie Antoinette's home in Joburg. Our suite was lovely and the staff was super friendly. They even offered to send someone to help with luggage to the Gauteng station, because my husband was in crutches. The locations is great, we could walk to Rosebank Mall and have dinner every night.

This heritage building was the perfect choice - rooms were huge with a separate lounge, breakfast was delicious, excellent service, super comfortable beds and a hotel in a very safe and secure location. Don't hesitate to stay here if you are... More

This is a a lovely property with sumptuous appointments. Burled wood for the desk, coffee table, and dining table. Massive bathtub for two. Excellent breakfast and dinner service. I hired their driver for a day to get me to various museums and the airport, and he always showed up on time.

I am so glad we booked this hotel on our way home from Zambia. This was one of the most beautiful rooms I've ever stayed for. It's the kind of place you go for the room -- and we took advantage of it, going out for carry-out at the nearby Woolworth's supermarket (wine, cheese, bread, olives and chocolate). The bathroom...

Although some aspects of the hotel building and facilities need some attention, the service levels and friendliness of the staff, their willingness to help and the convenience of the location do make up for it!

This hotel was really great value for the money. The hotel room actually was several rooms with two bathrooms and heated floors which were really nice. I loved everything about our room. We stayed on a Sunday night and ate at the hotel which was okay; the streets looked empty and we were nervous about venturing out in the dark.... More
