My first time staying for two months in Jo'burg was 2008. I was almost one of the first guests when it was almost under furnishing, after 5 years I came back and I found the service is still excellent as it was on my last visit.
Staff are helpful and very friendly, room service is better than Hotels. The apartment is fully furnished with all you want. You will that you are living an a real home not an hotel.
So for the facts,
If you like to prepare food yourself, then the kitchen has a complete set of what you are looking for; what you need is to go for the nearest Woolworth, SPAR or PicknPay and get your food ready for cocking. All of them are only 10minutes away by car.
Internet is 150MB for free every day and you can buy more, but before buying more I advice you to check the speed first of Go for USB modem. You have the 150MB/day for each wireless device you have fro free. I was having 3 of them with 450MB daily for free :)
Power adapters are for SA and European you need to ask the reception for UK or US adapter.
Reception services is not a 24/7 so need to know what you want and you can ask them by phone. Security is 24/7 and not fully in weekends. you have two parking lots available for you.
You need to tell the cleaning lady about any special needs in cleaning or laundry and she will do it.
You had SA people living with you in the same compound so you will not have such feeling when you are in hotel filled with foreign people.
There is a gym and swimming pool included in your daily rate.
There is a full DStv service with all channels you may like, except Arabic ones :(.
I will recommend it over hotels for long or short saty specially if you can prepare your food yourself it will be far cheaper then 5* hotel with expensive extras: like food, laundry, internet
Make sure of having the correct adapters and they are 220V.
Your main problems will be traffic in peak hours and that shops close early in weekends (Sundays). SA is like UK in this matter.
The only thing you need to take care about is traffic in SA and they drive like the UK style, to the right.
