    Nice Suburban Hotel in Safe Area near mall


    This hotel is situated in a very nice suburban area, and I took the taxi from the airport which cost about 350 Rand (7.5 Rand to $1 USD). My driver, a new immigrant from Zimbabwe, had a little difficulty looking for the hotel, but signs saying “rosebank hotel” led us to it. The façade is simple with steps leading up to the reception where service was straightforward. I was given a room on the first floor (Room 104) which was big with a large kitchen and counter. I did not notice any airconditioning but the room was not warm at all and if the windows were slightly open fresh air went in well (March 2008 weather was just right). The bathroom was small though with standup shower, and it was hard to contain the water because of the small plastic/glass partition so water would wet the floor when I showered. Hot water was quick and easy to control. The room was cleaned adequately everytime I left. The location is perfect since the hotel is walking distance to a mall which has great food choices, including a bakery with fresh stuff daily. The mall also has a curio/souvenir shop but prices are higher and vendors a bit pushy. But I felt safe in the mall and the hotel neighborhood was safe. There is money exchange at a far side of the mall, forgot which side but it gave better exchange than the one at the airport (bring your passport when exchanging money).I did hire a driver and car to go to Sun City and Pilanesburg national reserve which is about 2.5-3 hours north of Johannesburg, depending on traffic. My driver was 62 yo “J.R.” of the Venda tribe who was experienced and drove well, unlike my newbie driver from Zimbabwe from the airport. It is wise to get the most experienced driver to drive you around. The room also had a security safebox which was easy to program, and I left my laptop at the front desk with no problems. Breakfast was excellent with several choices including hot sausages and tomatoes, beans, and eggs can be cooked according to your liking. There was also quick room service, although they ran out of bottled water when I called. But the food was okay. Overall, a safe convenient location in a Johannesburg suburb, which probably would be perfect for small families and those new to Johannesburg.

    Unique Quality: big room with big kitchen - sort of like an apartment feel to it

    Directions: Taxi driver had hard time to find hotel because it is in a suburban hotel, but you will see a sign saying "HOTEL" and just follow that (that's really helpful, huh?).
