This hotel is in a historic building (just over 100 years old - historic for Johannesburg) near downtown Jo'burg.
It appears to be fairly secure (though the sliding window in my room had no lock to prevent it being slid open from the outside). It has a good size car park, a buffet restaurant that seems popular amongst locals and a British style pub (which does cheap but poor quality food).
There is a grand lounge with a nice open fire in winter, an outdoor pool and the grounds are well kept, but the part of the hotel I was in was starting to look tired.
There also isn't anything to do around there. I wouldn't walk around that part of town at night even if there was.
A customer booked this hotel for me because it was close to their office, saving an expensive taxi from Sandton; but once the Gautrain line from Sandton is complete I would be tempted to stay there and take the train (or even a taxi) since at least you have something to do in Sandton in the evenings.
