We reached Johannesburg on 18th noon and our flight to CapeTown was early next morning so we had booked a room here for a night. The good thing was that they have a free airport shuttle available that is scheduled once every hour till 11pm (from airport to hotel). The hotel itself is just 5-8 mins drive from the airport....

This was a very nice looking Hotel. Unfortunately nobody informed us that you can only book in @ 14H00 in the afternoons... we arrive early and had to wait a long time in the bar area with no service...., but the Hotel is very nicely design and the rooms are OK....

I've been at this hotel on 03.03.2012 for a short break between flight connections. The room is quite spacious and pleasant. Excellent cleaning. It's just a little strange that the shower was in the middle of the room and not in a separate locked area. Negative points: 1) the bath towel to get delayed because, according to information received from... More

Arriving at 01.20 in the morning was guaranteed to be a bad start to my stay. Having eventually found the hotel bus stop the promised 24 hour shuttle service did not materialize and on getting through on the phone to the hotel was told I would have to find a taxi as there was no shuttle.

Stayed for 2 nights while waiting for a flight to USA. Price was reasonable and hotel was very nice. Very upscale and trendy. Has an "airline" decor. Room service food was good and fast. Breakfast buffet was standard and tasty. Only minor issue I had was the shower drain was stopped up and water got onto floor. Maintenance quickly fixed... More

We booked this as a short stop airport stop over and weren't really expecting much, but the hotel exceeded our expectations. (The bargain price made it all the more pleasant!)
