Formula 1 in Southgate is very well located near Johannesburg's major international airport. The rooms are really small although they do accommodate up to three people, but the small space has been so diligently used that you hardly notice it! The room I stayed in was clean, and well air conditioned, but what I really liked about the place was how technologically advanced it is compared to most motels. Light switches are conveniently placed just above the bed's head board and with a simple touch or two you can moderate how dim or bright you want your room to be. The taps are also "techy" and you don't have to turn on any light at the sink. The light switches on automatically eveytime you approach the sink!
I enjoyed my time there, but I found the price (five hundred and something rands at the time) to be slightly hefty. Especially since breakfast wasn't included. If it weren't for the faulty coffee machine, and the lack of breakfast (they were under renuvations at the time), and the not-so-affordable price, I'd give it a 5/5.
