“This is the place in Downton Jo´burg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2010

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).
