I used this hotel for an unscheduled 24-hour stopover in Johannesburg, and chose it because of proximity to the airport and to a large mall with choice of restaurants and cinema. Room (4th floor) was more comfortable, better furnished and quieter than expected (having said that, I did request and was given a room on the quiet side of the hotel, as I could imagine that there would have been more noise on the side that faces the busy dual carriageway alongside the hotel).
Check in staff were courteous, and dining room staff were satisfactory.
The bathroom was spotlessly clean.
Since I was traveling on an evening flight, I was facilitated with a late check-out the following day, which I greatly appreciated, at no extra cost.
