The Residence Boutique Hotel, Johannesburg
Old School Vibe and 5 Star Service
We stayed there twice in our trip to South Africa, On the way in and on the way out. Each time we had a suite with unique amenities. The food at the restaurant was some of the best food in the whole country. The service was really spectacular. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The facility even though its kind of easy to get lost because its 3 old mansions put into one large estate is really nice. There are numerous pools and amenities so it was quite a unique setting. We had a hickup w/an airport pick up and management went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with the misunderstanding. Great Hotel! -

Best hotel in Johannesburg
This is a remarkable hotel with excellent staff! They were very attentive to our needs and very willing to help us around town and with tours. They were very helpful with airport transfers and anything else we needed. If you are ever in Johannesburg and you don't stay here you are missing out on an amazing place and group of people that make you feel like family!

Exceptional personalized service. Seamlessy arranged our pickup form airport and next-day departure to incorporate a museum visit before returning to airport. Heated outdoor pool was a treat. Dining experience in hotel was extremely pleasant: comfortable uncrowded tables, excellent food.
