Placed in a good zone, good restaurant, very nice staff, big room. Near the University of Pretoria, Brooklyn Mall and several nice restaurants (2-3 km). Is better to have a car or to rent one, because the taxi is expensive and difficult to find and to walk is not a solution, especially in the evening.

Very nice, very clean and very relaxing. The beds are fantastic and I had the best sleep of my life at the Herbert Baker. Wonderful bathroom/bathtub and nice sized rooms. Couldn't ask for more. A special call out to Victoria, an awesome chef who does such an excellent job. I will be staying there again.!

I really enjoyed the city views. The location was great, far enough from the hustle & bustle of Pretoria. It's less than 45km from OR Tambo international airport. The staff were all very friendly, professional & helpful. The breakfast was tasty & generous.

We stayed here for one night between a Rovos rail journey and heading to Kruger National Park. It was perfect. The room was large, luxurious, quiet. It had everything you could possibly want.
