“Mapungubwe is great!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Loved the rooms as they have a small kitchen area as well as a lounge area. Great for self catering should you not want to go out for meals. Should anyone need accommodation in JHB Central, this hotel is the best! Dinner was great and breakfast really scrumptious! Didn't know about this jewel in the CBD. Thank you for the hospitality. Serena.

Probably the most perfect venue for a wedding in the Johannesburg CBD.. It was just the feel that were looking for. Not over the top, simple, to the point and served its purpose precisely.

Twist restaurant for the reception was outstanding. The food was immaculately presented, the venue was well set out, the attention to detail was great. The food was excellent value for money. Thank you for the special exception meals prepared as well.

The Vault as the after reception venue served its purpose well. Everything was set out exactly as we imagined and your staff of waiters and barmen on all fronts need to be commended on the outstanding service on the evening.

The Penthouse Suite accommodated our requirements for the evening perfectly.

A special thank you to Carlien for the outstanding work in coordinating the various aspects of our special day and making it such a memorable one not only for ourselves, but for our guests as well. Until today, both family and friends cannot stop praising the function, in large part to Faircity Mapungubwe Hotel and your extraordinary staff.

Room Tip: The Penthouse is outstanding

I spent 5 nights here in June 2014 in room 417. Large space, relatively clean, good gym, great breakfast, and helpful staff with super useful free shuttle. Internet is very fast. The room was a bit noisy with old water pipes banging in the ceiling. The area is safe at day but not at night - avoid walking after dark. Recommended and would stay here again.

This is by far one of the best hotels in the Johannesburg CBD. I stayed there for 3 days during a business trip and was more than satisfied by their service. The only problem that I personally faced was the breakfast was not halal but the chef was kind enough to make a separate omelette for me in a new pan. Would definitely stay there again.

I really liked where this apartment building is located, the room was a good size but the finishings and furniture didn't compliment the overall elegance of the foyer. The room service meal was a total disappointment, breakfast was an improvement. The parking is too tight and the security arrangements too old school and annoying. I feel like this place is waiting for an opportunity to shine, the building is in a good location, the staff willing but there is something GRAND and FINITE that is lacking, such a pity! What a great concept and location.

We stayed for 3 days in a one bedroom suit. It was just what we were looking for, room was large and had a view of the pool. Building is older but they have fixed it up to be nice enough .The area is good, we walked to the museum and around town with no problems .Mining walk is only a block away and is very well kept. Breakfast was included and was good, more than you need in fact. Dinner was also reasonable and service better than most. We would return here if staying in Johannesburg. The staff was Great they do a bang up job of making your stay feel welcoming.
