As a traveller from outside of Johannesburg staying in a hotel that allows me to walk to the office is one of the best ideas since sliced bread. I don't have to face traffic nor attempt to drive in city center myself.
The hotel is clean and beautiful decorated. Staff friendly and the Twist restaurant has the BEST chicken wrap I have ever had before. In my opinion this hotel is for business travellers that need to visit the corporate offices in that area. I have walked to the office now many times and did not feel unsafe once. As a business traveller has no need for evening entertainment.
Just one failure of attention to detail in the rooms: there are no electrical plug close to a mirror and as a female going to a corporate work environment that is frustrating. And with my last visit this past week the staff could not assist with a round two point plug for the hair dryer in the room. The hotel has ten of these adapters and they were all issued to rooms. Silly problem since ther rest of the setup is so classy. Not a good enough reason not to use the hotel again, but I will go better prepared next time :).
