Johannesburg offers a rich range of accommodation. We recommend choosing your hotel based on how long you’ll stopover and what you want to experience.

If your stopover is quick – for example, an overnight wait for a morning flight – choose the most comfortable hotel you can afford, ideally one with an in-house spa or quality gym to unknot the aches and pains of a long haul flight, and a great restaurant on the premises so you can relax, eat, sleep and go on your way with minimal hassle.

If you are stopping long enough to see the sights, choose a hotel that is centrally situated, with comfortable outdoor relaxation space so that you can enjoy an afternoon poolside and a great breakfast buffet to fuel up before a day of touring. Ideally, choose a hotel near one of Johannesburg’s tourist-friendly spots offering a taste of the city’s vibrant nightlife, such as Melrose Arch or Sandton Square.
