I have stayed at Katherine Street at least half-a-dozen times in the last few years, and love going back there. It is an older style of building, which has been kept up-to-date internally, and is set in beautifully maintained gardens. It is just on two floors (in contrast to the impersonal glass-and-steel monstrosities which have sprung up in the area).... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Booked the 2 bedroom suite. Breakfast is average and being halaal I guess makes the breakfast options a lot less. None the less, cereals, fruits, juices etc were enough to start us off for the day. The pool area is a bit small but there are one or two places to sit around and enjoy... More

The rooms were good but the staff tried to con us out of our proper booking of the superior rooms and when they realized we knew they offered a free 'upgrade' to the rooms we had paid for in the first place. Food was average in the restaurant. Nothing to write home about. Located in a quiet neighborhood so not... More

My family and I have used this hotel on many occasions when going to Johannesburg and the high standard remained over the last five years. The staff was always friendly and helpful.... More
