The Mercure in Randburg is a budget hotel located outside of Johannesburg, If you have a rental or access to a car, this is workable but you get what you pay for at 60 bucks a night.
I arranged a pickup from the airport that cost R450 or $50. What you save on the daily rate, you will give back in expensive taxi fees. The hotel restaurant only serves breakfast but there is a small mall (bridgewater commons) nearby but with very good restaurants at decent prices. There is an African restaurant called Homebaze that serves great food. The other complaint is that the only is quite stingy with the internet and charges for access. 50 rand for 40 minutes or 89 rand for 289 megabytes. You get 20 megs for free daily.
The staff is ok, I was able to save some money by getting a taxi to the sandton train station for 200 rand, I then took the very efficient train to the airport which costs 115 rand from Sandton
