The only reason I'm reluctant to give Genesis a 5 star review is that I might battle to get a booking again!
We rented a 2 bedroom suite on the second floor. The check-in was quick and friendly with a porter helping us to the unit. The suites themselves, although not huge, are very well furnished with satellite TV, iPod docking radio, comfortable beds, good quality appliances, granite tops, large fridge/freezer - pretty much everything one would need for a short stay. There is a nice view from the room over part of Johannesburg and secure parking. There is also a supermarket and restaurant in the complex which is very convenient.
We opted not to pay R90 for the breakfast when booking online which was a good idea for us since there is the option to buy food at the supermarket downstairs to self cater or alternatively the restaurant option at which, although I didn't check, I'm fairly sure that breakfast could be had for a lot less. Perhaps the only negative is Genesis is a little bit in the middle of nowhere in the suburbs but if you have a car its fine. Sandton is about 10km away through Wynberg.
All in all an excellent spot and excellent value for money!
