Don Sandton Hotels Jo'berg

I am looking at the Don Sandton hotels in Johannesburg as a possibility for a family of three -- couple plus teen age son. On a mission budget.

Any input on the Don Sandton hotels -- particularly Don Sandton III?

This chain uses converted apartment buildings for its properties - for the most part. The Don Sandton III is well located and, if you have a car, a good base for your time in Johannesburg.

I have stayed at a Don near Wanderes and it was a small apartment. It is not that easy to get around Joburg so I would recommend a car...get a GPS and you'll find that it is not that much of a problem :-) Here is my Joburg trip report from a couple of years back gardkarlsen.com/johannesburg_south_africa_20… . Hope that you can find some useful info there. I came back from Joburg just a couple of days ago...I spent 3 weeks in South Africa visiting the family :-)

Thanks for the input. I lived 2 years in CPT, but spent only "touring" time in Jo'berg with a fried.

Clean, good value, well situated provided you have your own car - breakfasts very nice. At that price you can't go wrong. Standard - one could say like a small Holiday Inn in the States.
