The hotel is in a safe area of Johannesburg. As a couple, we were able to walk the area and feel safe. The rooms are very modern. We were on the sunrise side of the hotel, so binds as well as curtains were provided, so we could sleep until a normal wake up time-not too early. If you like hard beds, you'll enjoy it.
Be sure to use your bath mat when getting out of the shower. You go from the shower to glass tiles. With wet feet, that could be the recipe for a fall.
When we returned to our room, we found that both hand towels and the bath mat were not replaced. I found the maids and asked for them. Due check when you return.
Breakfast offerings were extensive. Note that if you chose to drink the bottled water, check to see whether it is still or sparkling. They also have water in a dispenser that is either lemon flavored or cucumber flavored.
