This hotel was our haven during soccer world cup. We arrived with no reservations and all hotels in Sandton were full. We found our way to Braamfontein in Downtown Jo´burg and we received a nice welcome in the Orion Hotel Devonshire. The hotel is clean, safe and the staff is always helpful. There is a wonderful bar attached to the hotel where we had a really good time during some games. This is the "other" Jo´burg (not Sandton) which is not always recommended as a point for staying. But we liked it a lot and felt safe and welcome all the time (day and night).
