It's a nice hotel with large rooms even suitable for longer stays. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice. The restaurany..slightly over average, but nothing special. Only disadvantage of this licatiom ..it's in a business district and after office hours Is this area quite.

Stayed here for work. The location is in a Central city suburb of Johannesburg. For the less avid traveller this may be a little confronting as inner city Joburg has a bad reputation. That being said, the location is actually great for tourism. They have a free shuttle which will take you most places nearby, eg dinner. The driver, I... More

As an avid traveller, few things sway us, particularly as related to service. The Faircity Mapungubwe Hotel Apartments can use some work on their rooms..... the couches are in desperate need of a steam-cleanin, and an update on their sheets would do the wonders.
