Mrs AfricanTravel was on a training course - so I booked Urban Hip so that we would be close to the venue and she could avoid JNB traffic in the mornings and evening. It's something of a strange place - the 'suites' are spacious but the bathroom is very dated, the carpets had burns and stains, the bed was not... More

Splice is an anomaly. When I first set eyes on the building I couldn't understand the slew of bad reviews. The structure is architecturally fascinating and obviously took great care to design and build. At a quick glance at the room it was also hard to see the storm of issues Splice had. The apartment was spacious and furnished with... More

If you are looking for an extended stay location, this is one of the few options available and at a nice rate. We blended our time for cooking and eating out, nice to have the option to eat in the room when traveling with children. There is no restaurant on premises, but great housekeeping service. We stayed in both unit... More

These are apartments and not a hotel, so that's the first thing to understand. Bernard is professional and a gem. The carpets are dirty, the towel have seen better days and are rough and no longer white in colour, the block is really in need of a refresher course, paint and decor. The coffee shop closed down a long time... More

This is a interesting hotel/apartment block built in the shape of a ship and open to the air at one end. The rooms were comfortable, clean and spacious and everything worked first time. The location is great being near the centre of the city and our view was first-rate. Parking was easy. Do not expect a hotel as much as... More

Wouldve walked out at checkin, and I use that term loosely. But we were part of a group in jhb for a 50th party. First unit was shocking, dirty, stained towels and bedding, gaping holes where electric sockets should be closed, all interior applications in dire need of maintenance and attention. Topped by a previous occupant having left manky slippers,... More

Splice is almost very nice and if you look at the website you will think it is fantastic. And it isn't all bad but bad enough not to return, especially at the price. A few good points are the large unit (we stayed in a two bedroom apartment), a fairly central location close to the freeway, a nice kitchen for... More

I have rented a penthouse long term and whilst this place has potential it is NOTHING like it promises. NO customer service, staff are too afraid of the body corporate to do anything, the chairman runs around screaming like a dictator. Guest are treated like intruders and wherever they can make your life difficult they will. For business they imply... More

Water failed on us for 5 hours on day and we had no power for 36 hours near the end of our stay. Power outage was our complex only. Front resturant was... More
