A couple of days stay at Jo-Berg, ZA

Had a couple of days to see Jo-berg and enjoyed the tranquil neighborhood and good amenities that the hotel had to offer: restaurant, gym, proximities to two shopping malls.

My home from home

This was my second stay in three months. I was taking care of family business and needed access to a copier, a fax, printer, computing facilities etc. Staff were helpful at all times and friendly. Room service was always quick and pleasant. Not all instructions like 'hold the onions' were properly followed but that was a minor inconvenience. The food was competent but not special.

Melrose Arch has a wonderful selection of restaurants and cafes for a change from the hotel's somewhat limited menu choices.
