“Contemporary hotel in CBD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Stayed in this hotel for one night, what a pleasant surprise in downtown Johannesburg! The rooms were spacious, clean and modern. I was impressed to see that the hotel was full even over a weekend! The staff were friendly and very helpful. The food in the restaurant Twist was excellent!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

A group of us decided to make an overnight visit to Fairdity Mapungubwe and to visit the Masters Art Exhibition at the Standard Bank Theatre.
The rooms are spacious, luxurious and very well designed; both in terms of comfort as well as aesthetically.
The meals were great! We booked the Round Room as a private dining area and ordered off the a la carte menu.
However, what made the visit exceptional was the staff. As a team they are confident, naturally guest oriented and genuinely helpful.
All of us in the group could not stop talking about how relaxed they made us feel and how they were able to both anticipate our needs and then respond so well.
Definitely a great recommendation!

Room Tip: Corner rooms and court yard facing rooms are great.

I was very impressed with the size of the room. Very spacious, open and clean. The hotel in general is very clean and neat, making my stay more pleasant. The service we received at the hotel and restaurant was exceptional. We have not experienced such service in a long while, while traveling. Location of the hotel was a bit scary but the staff made me safe at all times. I will definitely recommend the hotel to all my friends.

Hello tsametse,

Thank you for your comments. I will pass it on the our team. The complimentry shuttle is one of the ways we try and make it easier for our guests to get around in the city centre. Please make use of it to go to the Gautrain station next time when you visit us.

I really, really liked this place. Unlike some places in the same neighborhood, the staff will bend over backwards to help you out. The price is reasonable for what you get; it's nice value for the money. The rooms are spacious and aesthetically pleasing, the beds super comfy, and you get plenty of channels on the TV. Also, each room has a kitchenette ... which is generally unnecessary if you're there in the short term, because why cook when there's an open-late room service menu, EXCELLENT restaurant downstairs, and several other good restaurants within 2 blocks walking distance?

Only complaints: the hallways are kind of drab - sounds like a weird thing to complain about, but when you're there, walking to your room feels like trudging through a factory. Also, the rooms don't have wireless, but complimentary LAN cables are available from the front desk. You get logged on eventually, but it limits your mobility a bit.

Overall, though, would DEFINITELY recommend, or stay here the next time I'm passing through Jozi.

Good morning Meg H,

Thank you for your review and sharing your experience with us. I will pass it on to the team ! For your next stay you can look forward to an upgraded LAN system in so far as speed and ease of connectivity. We could not go the WiFi route as the building use to be an old bank. With all the reinforced concrete we cannot get the WiFi to offer a stable connection throughout the hotel. Thus the LAN upgrade !

Looking forward to welcome you back at Faircity Mapunguwbe !

Regards,

Travelled to SA for a work trip and initially based in this hotel near the "Miners Mile" in the heart of Jo'Burg City. The hotel features a nice restaurant and good gym and pool facilities. The rooms are really good featuring their own kitchen in case you have enough of the restaurant downstairs. The draw back is the location - after hours not much to do but get in the car and head for another area of Jo'Burg. Weekends very quiet in the immediate area.

The hotel was excellent. Rooms were large and clean. My room had a small kitchen wherein I could make my instant noodles, etc. whenever I wanted to. And staying in a hotel that allows me to walk to the office is one of the best ideas.
