Stayed here last month for a week as I was in Jo'burg for work, I'd previously stayed at the Westpoint Apartments across the road and was not prepared to go back, and a girlfriend had recommended Hydro. So glad I took her suggestion! I turned up without any notice, and they were able to put me into a 2-bed apartment the next day on the same rate as a 1-bed, thanks!
The 2-bed apartment was lovely - clean, spacious, with a well-equipped kitchen incl washing machine and dryer, plenty of cooking utensils which I appreciated given I like to cook. The bed was very comfortable, enjoyed the deep bath in the ensuite and taking my coffee on the balcony each morning. Parking downstairs is free and abundant and supervised by Security, they give you a pass key to the entrance when you check-in so once you've got that it's hassle-free. A maid comes in and cleans on a daily basis, and even did the ironing for me if I left out some bucks. there's a small shopping centre 5 mins walk away, wtih a couple of supermarkets to choose from, as well as a few cafes and restaurants, so plenty of local choice. Also close to Mandela Square where there are piles of cafes, huge shopping centre open 7 days a week etc etc.Small gym downstairs has a coupla machines and weights, and didn't appear to be busy. The apartment was also nice and quiet, very little noise from the busy road, and zero noise from other apartments.
All in all, would definitely recommend this as a great stay in Jo'burg.
