      Not so Bad, But not too good”

      The Businessburg hotel location is itself is not in the best neighbourhoods, More Unsafe than any area of town. However the hotel itself on the inside is not that bad, kept relatively tidy and clean and the rooms are hospitable. Overall when staying there, try not to live in the hotel all day, its better as a place to come rest or just sleep and get back to business during the day.

      We arrive Johannesburg around 4:30 pm South Africa time and every cab we ask to take us to the hotel was saying they are not going to this area, not until i asked the thirteenth taxi why is everyone not going to this area then he answer and said have i been to that hotel before, i answered No, and cab man said you don`t really want to go there because it is not safe for anyone even more for a Lady. i have to look for another hotel that is now very expensive because of the emergency and unfortunately this hotel will not refund my money as only booking cancel 7 days before arrival can be refunded. what a shame
