We chose this hotel based on our tour guide's recommendation and its proximity to O.R. Tambo airport. It was perfect. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Johannesburg in the future.

Basic accommodation for the many people - conference facilities, on the old side - however it is all about what you want to do there - an overnight because it is central and close to the airport or many people staying at the same venue for a conference is fine - nothing more.

I had a lovely stay and the staff were very helpful and always friendly. I have always enjoyed the shuttle service to the mall and the airport. The rooms were always cleaned on time and I had value for my money.

Not for my lifestyle, but it is a good and beautiful place. The location is good to arrive airport. The rooms are large and well equipped. There is space enough to get fresh air without abandon the complex.

Overall I was pleased. I was impressed with the location, but the connectivity in my room was horrible. I was under the impression that the WiFi was uncapped, but was very disappointed with my limitation - 500mb per 24 hours, which was not sufficient or cost effective - at all.

This is a relatively new system which we continue to improve. In terms of the allocation, we do provide 500MB at no fee, however, additional packages are available should you require more space.
