“First visit and Stay in Johannesburg”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

1 Hour early Check-in was tolerated for me on 13-Nov-13. Hotel staff are friendly and helping. Food options are wide and tastes good. Overall cleanliness is good. On a business trip from India, three nights I stayed. A free trip(Shuttle service) to Mandela square was provided by hotel. Pick and Drop was on-time. I would prefer to stay again here.

Room Tip: First floor with pool view is good for me.

Moderate-sized hotel, with rooms around a courtyard pool, at a great price. Breakfast was very good with made to order omelets. The GPS had trouble finding the entrance, which was off a small street parallel to the main road.

Dear Pigaway,

Thank you kindly for taking the time to review our charming hotel on Tripadvisor.

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our breakfast spread and made-to-order omelettes.

Apologies for the challenge in finding our hotel on the GPS. We urge our guests to rather use our GPS coordinates than our physical address. The coordinates to the hotel entrance are Lat -26.085490 and Long -28.059220.

We hope to welcome you back to out hotel one day. Until then, kindest regards

I think if you were booked in here for a holiday you might be disappointed but for a business trip it suited perfectly. I was only there for a night...comfortable bed, adequate amenities. Winner here was the breakfast - buffet style with lots of variety. Would stay for a stop over again. Not bad at all...just nothing special.

We stayed here for 2 brief stopovers during an African tour. It was certainly clean and comfortable with good bedding although the bathrooms did fog up easily. The breakfast were good without being brilliant but an evening meal was disappointing. Only average quality food which was relatively expensive compared to what is available at nearby Nelson Mandela square. I suggest you take the free shuttle there where you will find a huge array of restaurants to suit any budget.
If possible get a room facing away from the main road as it can get a bit noisy. The location is good and we certainly felt quite safe there.

An ok hotel, good for a stopover but there are better spots in Johannesburg at the same price point. The food was relatively good however breakfast wasn't ready at the advertised time which made it difficult when we were on a tight departure schedule.

Arriving in Joburg for 2 nights I found this hotel the Falstaff very clean and safe place to be in a strange country. Room service meal was excellent-huge meal for such a small price. Breakfast was enjoyable with the staff very helpful. Shuttle car was available for use. The rooms were big and the bathroom was too. I would stay here again.
a short walk away is the Morningside shopping centre which has most of the shops that you could need. Unfortunately this shopping centre was the second place I used my credit card to find the bank did not accept my card. Other than that all was good.

If you visit Sandton, the heartbeat of Johannesburg, this is the place to visit. It is central, safe and we had a hearty welcome. It was impeccably clean and has all the amenities - even an in-house restaurant. We only had breakfast at therrestaurant, which was very good. I glanced at the winelist which seemed OK but on the expensive side. One downside is the shower. It is located above the bath and leaked water onto the bathroom floor. Airconditioning was perfect. I can recommend this hotel highly and would definitely return. Good value for money.
