Johannesburg Hotel Reviews
Most, if not all, of the good hotels are in the northern suburbs. Many of the hotels are linked to nearby malls and are well policed. Boutique hotels have sprung up everywhere, as have bed-and-breakfasts from Melville to Soweto. Hotels are quieter in December and January, and their rates are often cheaper. Generally the busy months in Jo'burg are from June to August. If there's a major conference, some of the smaller hotels can be booked months in advance.
You can find just about every type of lodging in Johannesburg, from the stately and classic Saxon to the fun and funky Ten Bompas. Although these varied options are all worthy places to lay your head, the truth is most travelers only stop here for an overnight before they head out to their safari destination. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of places that are easy to get to from the airport and are located in well-secured areas so that you will feel safe and comfortable.
All the hotels we list offer no-smoking rooms, and many have no-smoking floors.
