        A lovely Boutique Hotel in an upmarket neighborhood ! ”
        I spent one night at the Residence on transit out of Johannesburg which was a charming experience. As a solo traveller I always prefer to stay in a 5 star hotel chain which I did on arrival into J’burg but decided to experiment the Residence simply due to the high recommendation & reviews read on the travel sites ! Loved the intimacy & romance of the property with top notch five star service. My personal view is it’s over the top, loud & ostentatious.... Nevertheless it doesn’t take off the comfort, plush surroundings & the serenity.

        An oasis of calm and luxury”
        We stayed at the Residence as a respite between flying from London and traveling on to Zimbabwe and Botswana - and again on the return trip. The ambience of the hotel is calming, warm and welcoming. The management and staff are friendly and thoroughly professional. The quality and comfort of the rooms, the service and the food are truly worth their 5 Star rating.

        Joburg Jewel”
        A beautiful place in Joburg, but the staff is what make it a real jewel. Wonderful warm attentive service that reminds us that Africa has hospitality to rival any other place in the world. The food was incredible but most of all what we loved is how quickly we felt at home. Only there for a day but if felt like a weekend.

        So glad we booked our stay in Johannesburg at the residence. The security around the hotel makes you feel safe, we had been warned about the high crime in the region. The room was just perfect, I wish I had more time to enjoy the pools and spa facilities but we only had one night. The food at the restaurant was amazing and the breakfast was deluxe. All the staff are professional and very helpful. I honestly can’t fault anything at all. Very relaxing stay.

        Our penthouse suite with roof top jacuzzi & views was stunning. Dinner was also the best we’ve had in Joburg. Staff were so helpful without being obstrusive. Gardeners tend to the gardens to ensure they are immaculately kept & everything is so beautiful to take in. Without doubt would recommend for a unique 5star boutique hotel experience whilst in Joburg, definitely worth every penny!
