You couldn’t really get a much better location for a hotel in Rosebank. It is literally 50m from the Gautrain station, and pretty much attached to The Zone shopping mall in Rosebank, where there are countless shops, cafes, fast food, and restaurants. From the airport it only takes about 25 minutes to reach the hotel on the train. The area seems very safe and I haven’t had any trouble walking around the immediate area at night.
The street entrance to the hotel is a little unassuming, however take the elevator up to reception and you’ll be greeted by a light, airy, and stylish reception area manned by friendly staff, ready to check you in. Beside reception is a large bar and lounge area attached to a nice restaurant. This is where the buffet breakfast is served and it is not to be missed, with an awesome selection of fruit and hot/cold breakfast foods – a great way to start the day. Good service overall throughout the hotel and restaurant.
The rooms are very nice, normal size with comfortable furnishings, spotlessly clean and well-maintained. There is a nice little computer desk and there is free Wifi, but only a stingy 30Mb worth. Warning – this does not last long. I only got 6 minutes into a skype video call before it expired. They really should make the Wifi fully complimentary like many South African hotels are doing these days. Charging extra for Wifi connections is like charging extra for the TV or hot water! It is a basic service expected in hotels these days. The bathroom is basic but functional, however the hot water can take a very long time to arrive and also the shower can spray out into the bathroom and flood the floor if you’re not careful, as there is no shower door. All in all the room was very quiet and peaceful and I had great sleeps.
One floor below reception is what they call the minigym – and it is indeed a mini gym. It is a small room with about 5 passable cardio machines and a multigym. It is very basic and limited in variety, but better than nothing, and I had quite a few good workouts there.
I thought this was an excellent hotel and really enjoyed my stay. I will definitely be back and I highly recommend it to all other travelers.

Thank you for your wonderful review of our hotel during your recent stay with us. We are very proud of our team at the hotel who aim to deliver excellent service to all of our guests and in the short time we have been operational, we have had many return customers. Our location is favourable for business and leisure travellers and access to the Gautrain is quick and seamless. Cognisance is taken regarding your comment on WIFI and whilst suitable for most people's e mail and browsing needs, Skype tends to use a lot of bandwidth. To this end additional vouchers are for sale at nominal prices. I was pleased to learn that your stay was comfortable and enjoyable and we look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel in the near future.
