We checked in very late for a one night stay and was very annoyed to hear that they we had been given a twin room, after I had specifically booked an Executive Suite. However I had no energy to argue so late at night. The room was comfortable but looked tired. It was quite a warm night but we could... More

Terrible is the only word I can think about!! Room where old, curtain railings broken. Guests were loud and noisy, drinking and partying. Reception turned a blind eye to the complaints. Guests next door even tried to open door between the 2 rooms. It was a horrible stay. Breakfast was terrible. NEVER AGAIN!!

A nice place on a budget, nice location and very near to the Sandton City Mall and the Mandela Square, the rooms were very clean and the Hotel is set in a nice enviroment, one they should replace the Tube TV with flat screens or remove the TVs totally, Otherwise it was an awesome experience

Friendly staff, variety of breakfast items and cleanliness all around. Would recommend it to anyone and it is really close to the Sandton City shopping centre as well as the Gautrain station. Only downside is they charge quite steeply when it comes to internet.

This is a budget African standard hotel in the rich area of Johannesburg. Location is just perfect. Some hundred meters down the road from Gautrain station. Hotel room might look a bit rundown for western standard, but this is the real African feeling! Most guests are African. The bed is comfortable. Staffs are extremely nice. Many people complain about buffet... More

Westford was a nice surprise in Johannesburg. It is really close to the Sandton city shopping mall. The rooms are clean, spacious and the staff is also very friendly and helpful. Only problem i found with the place is that they charge for the internet at a very exorbitant rate. In this day and age, I believe a free wireless... More

Rooms are well priced, very good breakfast and within walking distance to the Gautrain and Nelson Mandela Square. A bar is located right on the premises. Leave your laptop at home and use their computer.
