With rooms conceptualised by some of South Africa's most celebrated Artists & Designers, 12 Decades traces the history of Johannesburg from 1886- 2006. Each decade has been interpreted by the individual designers to illustrate the most prominent features of the particular decade in Johannesburg's history. 12 Decades is part of the second development in the Maboneng Precinct, meaning “ Place of Light”. The development of this precinct forms part of a city improvement initiative by the development company, Propertuity. The Urban regeneration has been applauded by the City of Johannesburg, and as such, further developments are underway in the precinct, forming part of a vision to breathe new life into the old industrial area in the Eastern CBD.In addition to the 12 designer rooms, there are standard modern luxury hotel apartments for the not so adventurous to choose from.

We booked and payed for three nights, but we run out after one night. The place is dirty, dusty walls, uncovered electric wires (my son got a slight electric shock), bed sheets covered with stains.. not even close to the pictures they are publish. The place is in a busy street, on the positive side it is hectic and full of energy but very noisy.

Oasis in the heart of the Maboneng precinct. The area is bustling and visitors should be cautious. The hotel and room is comfortable, however there were many small unattended maintenance issues that will be best if resolved. Staff were friendly

We spent two nights in the 12 Decades Hotel with a really cool room and great views of the city. We loved the individual art concept, our room was very spacious and light with a huge shower and two double beds. Staff were very friendly and the room was clean. There are several nice bars and restaurants nearby.

The location of the hotel in Johannesburg is very good it is on foxstreet which is pretty much the only street in Johannesburg on which you can safely walk to the restaurant or bar you want to go to that night. The room itself was oke, the bed was a bit small both in length and wide. There was an airconditioner however this made a lot of noise. There was also a lot of noise coming from the street at night. The shower was a large rain shower however could use a bit of renoviting.

The location of this hotel is good, but I regretted I ordered breakfast tickets. The tastes of dishes are very good and the fee is reasonable, but it took so long from the time I ordered breakfast to the time it was delivered that I wanted a refund.

My friend and I booked this hotel for 2 nights and ended up staying for only 1 night. We found a half eaten pizza box in our hotel room fridge when we arrive and there were numerous other indicators that they didn't clean the room properly. On top of that we felt really unsafe in this area as we were two female travellers, and we were warned many times about potential robbery and were heckled multiple times on on the streets by even the security guards.

I likes staying at "12 decades". The place is safe, has parking available and lies right in the heart of the trendy Maboneng neighbourhood of Johannesburg. The room was nice, Internet was fast - only complaint: the fridge in the room was not working.

Location is great !!! Smell of the carpets was a serious turn off, I would consider replacing the carpets with tiles as carpet keeps smoke smell. Booking.com website does not allow one to choose room. Reception service was great
