Second stay here in two weeks and I am enjoying it more and more. The somewhat garish but expansive lobby starts to look trendy and modern and the new rooms seem more and more inviting. Excellent front-desk staff elevate this hotel above the norm. Rooms are really new and fresh with great flat-screen TV sets and ipod docking stations. Major gripe is the exceptionally small bathrooms (no bath in either of my rooms) which are modern but oh so cramped. In fact, the bathroom does not do the room justice. However, the entire experience is really pleasant and I would not hesitate to stay here again - in fact, I really want to - and this property is a lot more exciting and fresh than the more expensive Grace up the road! Internet access is far too costly though! And, its a short 7 minute walk to the Rosebank CBD and mall...quite safe for Johannesburg and an easy stroll. Highly recommended!
