The Devonshire Hotel
If you’re the type to seek out historical landmarks, then the Devonshire Hotel on Jorissen street is perfect for you. This 3-star hotel has been in operation since 1930! However, this does not mean that the service here isn’t modern and fully accommodating to your 21st Century needs. Each room is equipped with free WIFI, a flat screen television and coffee machine for your convenience. That being said, once you step out of your room you can travel back in time at the hotel’s piano bar and lounge. It’s the best of old and new all rolled into one neat package.
The Bannister Hotel is unlike any other inn you might find in Johannesburg. This is where the “cool kids” book their stays. Its bohemian atmosphere attracts a range of travelers, including business people and artists. And while its not your typical luxury hotel, the Bannister has something most lodges don’t – character and style. Enjoy a casual drink at the bar, before heading up to your room where you can look out onto the sprawling city lights from your window. Oh, and don’t forget to try their famous French toast in the morning. It’s simply divine.
