Finally I got to see the city of gold! Most people are shocked when they hear that I haven’t been to Johannesburg before – until now – considering it’s only two hours away by plane. Well, I still didn’t get to see the city, as this was a work trip, but I did spend time in the beautiful Holiday Inn hotel in Rosebank (in South Africa’s Gauteng province).
Service levels: Excellent from the minute we walked in, with the host/receptionist even offering to store our bags after we checked out and had to travel to our offices.
Cleanliness: Very clean, tidy, comfortable.
Decor: Modern furniture, comfortable bed, large shower with good water pressure. Flat screen TV with SABC channels. Inviting dining room.
Food: Excellent. Both the wrap I had for lunch and the lamb stew I had for dinner.
The Holiday Inn is well-known and popular, and with good reason. If they’re all as lovely as the one in Rosebank, I will definitely stay there again when in Gauteng.
