        Excellent and friendly staff, nice music in the restaurant, unusual place to stay in Joburg

        What about a warmer blanket ?

      • Couple

        Friendly reception, safe parking, neat and tidy rooms with modern amenities and artistic items on the walkway and rooms. The hotel room sort of "cocoons" one from the chaos of the city that surrounds the hotel. This is an excellent getaway place within the city surroundings. I certainly will call again.

        Please ensure that breakfast is served earlier than 7h00. People on business visits leave early and you potentially miss out on serving them breakfast, which is really tasty.

        The signature rooms each represent a decade in South Africa's history. We stayed in 1976 - 1986. It must be the only hotel room in the world with a camera obscura. Loved the room; loved the proximity to The Bioscope (saw Super Fly a 1972 grindhouse classic); loved the proximity to town and the highway; loved the proximity to the airport.

        1. The receptionist can be more prominent - she sits behind a computer at a table, behind the reception desk. 2. In keeping with the attention to details, each signature could get a keyring identifying it with that decade, rather than a cheap plastic tag. 3. There was no prominent information about the restaurant in the hotel; only saw a notice after we had already ordered take-aways friom a nearby cafe. 4. The rooftop is an amazing space for viewing Joburg, The rubble must be removed and the stairs kept clean. 5. Finally, the decor in 1976 - 1986 provided by the camera obscura is so unique, there's no need for the random framed photos.

        Location of the city centre and Lebo at reception is great!

        On my last mornign there was not running water, and the receptionist was not yet in, and the security guards had no idea of what to do in this instance.

        Felt very safe; excellent staff; very efficient staff; excellent service from Eric - our Chauffeur, his driving was first class and always prompt !

        The room was a bit warm - basically that's all!

        the sixe of the room. the area in which the hotel is situated is quite clearly the centre of an exciting and colouful part of the city.

        arts on main

      • Couple
        8.8

        The rooms are stunning. The Main Street Living project to regenerate the inner city and just the art galleries, the bioscope, the restaurant and the inner city feel are the highlights of this Hotel. On a sunday they have the greatest market (Arts on Main) there. The roof of the hotel (with gym and bar) has a spectacular view of Johannesburg. There is nothing "fake" about this Hotel (like most malls, hotels and casino's in South Africa).

        I couldn't pay online, and the restaurant (pata pata) downstairs only serves drinks after 21:30 which is waaay too early for Europeans who usually eat around ten.

        Interesting loft concept with some cultural activities. Fairly short walk to downtown area, a bit dark at night though. Easy secure parking at street or inhouse garage. Poor catering, especially at night. Fantastic location for young backpackers, students, artists, adventurers with lots of space. No public transportation. Not suitable for unexperienced middle class tourists.

        Great hotel. Loved the decor and surrounds.

        The noise from bars/clubs in nearby buildings is unacceptable, especially late at night.
