I attended an Exhibition at the Sandton Exhibition Centre opposite Mandela Square in Johannesburg, September 2011. A nearby hotel was imperative. Most of the hotels in the area I thought were overly expensive and an internet search suggested this venue. Because the price was more in keeping with what I had in mind I was really surprised and pleased with the actual suite itself.
The price is per suite and because each has two rooms this would make this an excellent choice for a family as well as a business person like myself. The photos show the suite's seating lounge, Kitchen and dining areas. Each bedroom has its own ensuite. The company website has a lot more info.
Altogether I would rate this highly. Paying in Sterling it cost £80.00 per night or 880 Rand.
Each suite is allocated two parking bays where the entry is security controlled by using fingerprint recognition.
Plenty of restaurants nearby. They also serve breakfast if you wish.
This is definitely worth a look.
