“Good facilities and location for work. After hours not so much..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Travelled to SA for a work trip and initially based in this hotel near the "Miners Mile" in the heart of Jo'Burg City. The hotel features a nice restaurant and good gym and pool facilities. The rooms are really good featuring their own kitchen in case you have enough of the restaurant downstairs. The draw back is the location - after hours not much to do but get in the car and head for another area of Jo'Burg. Weekends very quiet in the immediate area.

The hotel was excellent. Rooms were large and clean. My room had a small kitchen wherein I could make my instant noodles, etc. whenever I wanted to. And staying in a hotel that allows me to walk to the office is one of the best ideas.

I rcently stayed at the Mapungubwe hotel in Joburg during a recent business trip. The hotel was excellent, the rooms were large and very clean, the overall service was excellent. The restaurant served excellent local food, but fir the less adventurous there were basic meals to, with a great burger on the menu. My one reservation is with the location, it was a very rough area, which was confirmed by my clinets wh were astounded that we were staying in 'downtown Joburg', but we survived the trip and cannot thank the staff of the hotel enough for their hospitality..

Room Tip: Be on the first 2 floors as you have to take different lifts to get to higher floors.

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 :).

I was sceptic to be located in the inner city of Johannesburg. These were no go areas a couple of years ago. What a surprise to see the regeneration of the area that took place. I thought I was stuck there on a weekend after a hectic week of business in the city. How wrong I could be. Excellent food market on Saturday and Sunday. Easy to reach as the hotel offers a free shuttle to these markets. The Historical Inner City walk was a 2 hour leisure walk through the inner city on a Sunday moring just after breakfast. Well worth it!

Room Tip: Room 323 must be the best. Corner unit with double windows. Very quiet, close to the lift. Sunny in...

Very centrally located in the heart of Johannesburg, this hotel is ideal for business trips. Located literally accross the street from the Anglo American head office and BHP billiton only two blocks away, it is more than suitable for secondments or meetings here.

Pop around the corner for an awesome sushi bar, and some after work drinks.
This hotel also offers a shuttle service to all major attractions and airports and is the ideal location for having year end functions and parties. Very zhoosh!

The food was great, especially the fresh omelettes they serve every morning, definitely treat yourself to that.
The dry-cleaning was the best I have ever seen and very professionally done.
The apartments are very well appointed, clean and all the finishes are still brand new.

A group of friends and I are considering staying here when the Kings of Leon tour South Africa, for their Johannesburg concert.

Enjoyed my stay tremendously!
