Best Johannesburg hotels near Rosebank Mall

9.4 Excellent (363 reviews)
Pro " This elegant 5-star hotel is a perfect blend of a beautiful earlier-era look and modern amenities. Our massive Royal Suite offered a tastefully furnished living/dining area, separate bedroom, gorgeous bathroom with separate toilet and a powder room. Our big bed proved to be exceedingly comfortable with fine linens and pillows. We loved all the storage space and the perfect lighting. A huge terrace by our ground-floor suite offered the opportunity to sit outside. The property displays how the footprint of a former post office can be renovated to provide a wonderful sanctuary in a busy urban setting. Though buses stop at almost the hotel’s entrance door, no noise enters the building. The Gautrain also stops nearby, providing quick (takes about 20 minutes) transport to and from the airport. But the hotel arranged a transfer for us, because my husband’s mobility problems prevented us from using public transport. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the Rosebank Mall. We enjoyed the lovely dining room, not only for the high-quality food but also for the superb decor. What an inviting atmosphere! The exceptional staff made the buffet breakfast an occasion to remember. Their service ranked up there with what we have received at three-star Michelin restaurants in France. Exceptional service reigns supreme everywhere in the hotel. Kudos to everyone, who works there, from Housekeeping to front-desk staff. We especially appreciated the kindness and care extended to my husband. "
Con " We found no drawbacks to this extremely well-managed hotel. "
