Five best hotels in Joburg

Johannesburg has tons of great hotel options, from small guesthouses to ultra-luxurious getaways. We love guesthouses and B&B’s too, but here’s a list of the five best hotels in Joburg, for when you’re looking to get pampered with room service, great views, and a lounge chair by the pool.

The Michelangelo

A luxury staple with sweeping views of the city, but most people are doing their viewing indoors, trying to spot celebrities and dignitaries. www.michelangelo.co.za

Hyatt Regency

Modern stylings, a great Sunday brunch buffet. The hotel connects to the fashionable Rosebank shopping complex, is close to the Gautrain stop, and is walking distance to nightlife. johannesburg.regency.hyatt.com/

Hyatt Regency

The Westcliff

The Four Seasons bought this classic hotel and gave it a major facelift. Remaining the same are the sweeping views of northern Joburg especially sought after when jacarandas bloom in October. www.westcliff.co.za
Book Sunday brunch or at least high tea.

Melrose Arch

Swanky rooms smack in the middle of the city’s trendiest shopping sprawl. www.africanpridehotels.com

Parktonian Hotel

A great base if you want to enjoy the Braamfontein vibe, without getting totally overwhelmed by it. The biggest selling point is the rooftop restaurant, which includes a pool where you can swim while looking down on the skyscrapers.  www.proteahotels.com/hotels/Pages/protea-hotel-parktonian-all-suite.aspx
