Location: Downtown Johannesburg; the neighborhood doesn't seem to be as dangerous as one may initially think. No matter what their website would lead you to think, it is NOT within walking distance of the Apartheid Museum. Transportation: They have their own transportation service, which charges ~ $45 for pick up from the airport; not sure how reliable they are since they were 40 minutes late to pick me up from the Apartheid Museum (they agreed to a partial refund). Decor: Stylish and contemporary. Rooms: Spacious, decent lighting, very comfortable bed, standard room amenities (including safe, fridge, coffee maker). Street noise could be heard even from 15th floor. Bathroom has no door and shower is small. Internet: 20MB/day included after which you have to purchase a voucher. There are two computers in the lobby area which frequently didn't work. Service: Very inconsistent, some staff are very helpful while others have a "could care less" attitude.
