    We can see why you put us in Emperor’s Palace (I figure convenience and security) Not sure where else would have worked for such a tight timeline.

    D’oreal was ok, probably we would take the Intercontinental next time, which saves time to get to and wait for the shuttlebus. All of us were too tired to make use of the casino at the d’oreal, dinner the last evening in the restaurant was served very efficiently.

    Last but not least, the last night stay at the D’Oreale Grande at Emperor’s Palace was definitely worth the trip! What an elegant hotel! The casino was grand and when dinner came, we couldn’t decide what to eat because of the amazing selection of restaurants all in one place! We went to Nelson Mandela House and visited the town and some museums. It was a very educative trip and some stories were very moving!

    Regarding the D’Oreale the hotel was really good and the kids loved the “casino” for children and the restaurants. For us, it was not exactly our type of hotel because we like smaller hotels. But we do understand that it was near the airport and to entertain the kids was the best.

    D’Oreale was also a good choice as it was so convenient for our airport connections – hard to imagine the actual physical location of the place when you are inside of it and on the grounds. We were pleasantly surprised that the cost of things for us was very reasonable. We got a late checkout (3pm) at D’oreale and the cost was about US$30. It was far better than leaving at 11pm when the plane departed at 7pm so that was a good outcome.

    The hotel in JNB turned from comfortably adequate to absolutely fabulous, as they upgraded us to the ‘Augustus’ Grand Suite, which was truly grand. We ended up taking it in fully with a bath, Jacuzzi, sauna, and an 8 showerhead shower (all in suite). After a nice breakfast, we reluctantly headed back to the airport to begin our ‘real’ journey through Africa. Really nice and attentive staff all around.
