“Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Stayed for 1 night on a business trip to JHB. Friendly service at check-in, clean room, more spacious than expected, nice little kitchenette. Opposite the road from Rosebank Mall making it easy to get food from a variety of restaurants that also deliver! Enjoyable stay, would do it again.

The Courtyard Rosebank turned out to be a great place for our four-night stay in Johannesburg.

The hotel is directly next to/across from the Rosebank Gautrain station and the Rosebank mall complex. If you don't know Joburg, that means you can take the efficient, clean, safe Gautrain from the airport to the Sandton station, switch lines with absolutely no worry, & go one stop to Rosebank. When you come up from the train, the two-story hotel complex is within sight--again, no stress. Gautrain can also take you to the Hop On-Hop Off bus pickup point at the Park station.

The malls across the street include numerous restaurants, a movie theater, a grocery story & more. (The grocery closes at 6pm, as do many of the other mall stores, but restaurants remain open later.) Much of the mall is open-air, which is pleasant--you don't feel as if you are sealed off from the world. It's not as upscale as the malls at expensive Sandton, which to me was a very good thing.

The hotel itself is clean, with friendly staff & nice rooms. There are studio, one-bedroom, & two-bedroom rooms. All have kitchenette facilities with dining tables. We stayed in the reasonably priced one-bedroom suite, which meant we had a nice little apartment, comfortable for just hanging out. The pool was also a calm place to relax. This is not a luxury property; it's just a surprisingly good mid-market place to stay.

The hotel does not have a restaurant, although it serves breakfast. Several restaurants across the street will deliver--but we found it much nicer to cross the street ourselves for dinner.

You get 15 minutes free wi-fi a day, but otherwise there is a charge for Internet access via the AlwaysOn system. It's pricey at 50 rand per hour, but AlwaysOn seems to be everywhere in South Africa.

We needed a place close to Rosebank, and the Mall, at fairly short notice.After the madness of traffic congestion and Police Traffic Blocks, jamming roads over a busy weekend, what a treat to find. a 'mini home from home' on a busy Johannesburg weekday,
Efficiency, from the bookings, to the check out were unobtrusive, efficient and friendly!!
Quality room, and service with relaxing drinks by the pool after the traffic madness, made this a 'gem' in the midst of a minefield!!

We loved this hotel. Great location, great service and very comfortable space. Travelling with a child meant having a lounge/dining area (with kitchenette) and separate bedroom was a bonus. Excellent value for money. The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient. You also get lots of complimentary extras - coffee and tea and muffins in the lobby each morning if you don't want the lovely breakfast. Complimentary cocktails at night - non-alcoholic too. I am an ex-Joburger so I know the city well - this is hands down the best position place to stay!

Room Tip: Higher floor - there are only 2.

Courtyard hotel Rosebank is in a very good neighbourhood. Good food. Great staff. Directly opposite a big shopping mall, maning you can have access to a wide variety of restaurants and shops just across the street. It was clean and I slept well. I like the happy hour in the evenings too.

What more can I say, it was a lovely place.
