Recent guest reviews
There were 7 of us family members needed a place to stay for one night that was convenient to the airport. This 4 bed suite was absolutely outstanding. It was perfect and such incredible value for money. The restaurant downstairs served one of the best steaks we had had in a long time and breakfast was just perfect. Thank you. I cannot fault your staff at all, the booking process tho was painful.
This hotel is situated about 30 minutes from the airport, in Johannesburg. It's about 10-15 minutes by car to the main shopping areas of Sandton, Rosebank, Atholl, etc. The hotel is situated in a 7-story building, the tallest in the area, so you have great views. Rooms are great, clean, and bright. There is free (and good) Wi-Fi in the whole complex, two supermarkets, and a coffee shop. The hotel itself has a great grill house which serves three meals and snacks, outstanding food and very reasonable. They have just added a pizza bar as well. Larry the manager, and his staff, are superb. Local friends and family of mine make this a regular destination when they eat out. There is underfloor heating for winter, and recently air conditioning for summer. South Africa has electricity issues, and there are sometimes blackouts, but the whole complex has a generator which kicks in and you don't notice when power goes down. It's a great place to stay! The hotel is not centrally located, but there's no real "central" Johannesburg.
We stayed at the hotel in the northeastern suburbs of Johannesburg, for one night, after arriving on an international flight late at night. The hotel is about a 20 minute drive from the airport, attached to a suburban shopping center. The accommodation and the staff were amazing. Great check-in experience. Spacious luxurious 4 bedroom suite. When we checked out, we left a couple of items in the room, in error. Came back 3 days later, and they had our items set aside for us.
Spent a night at the Genesis Hotel straight from the airport, the hotel was of a good standard, clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and checking in and out was good. The location is a bit quiet, but within the hotel complex you have access to shops and a coffee shop which was good. We ate in the Bistro attached to the hotel in the evening, whilst the menu was basic the food we had was very good and good value. Overall I would recommend the hotel, its good value and good all round.
20 MInutes from OR Thambo, the hotel is in a shopping mall so easy to buy things for family especially since the flat is self-catering. The proxmity of the mall however did make early morning noise a problem. Otherwise the flat is well-furnished, clean and comfortable. Our 4-sleeper easily had room for more people!
What an awesome place. Felt like I was at home. Rooms was well designed & service was excellent. Save parking & just 20 min from the airport. With the kitchen and shops (Woollies & Pick n Pay) on the lower levels you can prepare your own food or go down to the hotel restaurant.
Perfect location... smart interiors...comfortable suite...toilets well designed...friendly and helpful staff.. good tasty sumptuous breakfast... it's in a mall so convenient to shop at leisure...a happy stay.
Absolutely enjoyed my stay at this hotel. There's an ATM machine in the lower levels which is much appreciated considering credit card fraud in the Joburg area, of which I was once a victim. There's also a couple of grocery stores with fresh fruits and vegitables. The hotel suite was stellar, extremely clean and housekeeping was amazing. I highly recommend this hotel as it is family and kid friendly
Lovely accommodation but terrible customer service at the end because I asked for a tax invoice and the two Sindi and Mpho didn't know how to do one. Sindi was extremely rude verbally and eventually just walked away instead of telling me she couldn't do it
Stayed here for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. Apartment was well-appointed, very clean and comfortable. Staff were fantastic, especially the front desk and restaurant staff. So warm and friendly. Location is above a suburban shopping centre which has 2 supermarkets, a good coffee shop and great bagel shop (amongst other things). Complex is secure and we felt very safe there. My recommendation would be to hire a car if you are staying here as location is away from the main tourist areas. Parking is free and we found driving around Johannesburg fine as long as you locked possessions in the boot and kept your wits about you. One thing to note is that apartments do not have washing machines. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.
