Looking for a spot that offers you the luxury of years gone by at yesterday's prices? Look no further!
We decided to be tourists in our own city and try this low profile 5* boutique hotel. Were we amazed! Some of the things we loved:
* grand rooms with the highest ceilings we've ever seen
* peaceful tranquility with no noise at all, except for birdsong in the courtyard. Our room overlooked
* having fluffy slippers laid out next to our beds during turndown service
* being offered a complimentary bottle of brut when we just ordered 2 glasses from room service
We'll be back!
If you love this, try the other Joburg gem: Central One restaurant in Sandton. Just 5km away so you could combine the 2 :)
