Stay here if you don't mind: (1) having to drag your own luggage outdoors through a downpour and upstairs to your second-story room; (2) having to teach the bartender to make a Martini; (3) not getting your laundry back on time; (4) hideously slow internet connection; (5) a wall-mounted TV screen so far from the bed that you need binoculars...

I stayed at the Peech Hotel for one night in March 2014. The Peech Hotel in my opinion is one of the premier hotels in Johannesburg. One can stay at other hotels in the Sandton/Rosebank area like the Radisson, Hyatt or Hilton, but what distinguishes the Peech Hotel from these hotel chains is its tranquillity and boutique feel.

We enjoyed 2 nights at this small boutique hotel. The entire staff is truly welcoming and friendly. As it was our first time in the city the staff arranged for a half day private tour of the city on very short notice. The hotel itself is in a residential area which is not busy at all so if you want... More

We chose the Peech Hotel because of its' high ranking on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It is located in a very good neighborhood and a safe area of Johannesburg which was of the utmost importance to us because we had heard about having to be careful with crime in Johannesburg. The hotel has a security gate that... More

This was our second visit to The Peech, and just as enjoyable as the first! We have family and friends in Johannesburg who met us at the hotel for dinner. Good location, easy drive from airport and plenty of secure parking. Friendly, polite & helpful staff. Very close to large shopping centre at Melrose Arch.
