This is really a great transit hotel, if you are either meeting people in Joburg, or in transit through Joburg airport. There is a shuttle service every half an hour. The hotel has an unusual warehouse theme, which I liked. The rooms were fine, and clean, with everything I needed. The restaurant was busy, so I opted for the buffet, which was fine. I think service was slow for those who chose "a la carte". Breakfast was excellent if you can eat loads. I would stay here again if I were connecting flights through Johannesburg. If I wanted to spend a few days in Joburg, I would choose a hotel in Sandton or a more central area.
