Firstly, I had a nightmare with this hotel on pick up from the Gautrain station. Despite calling them several times, their pick up was still delayed for over 30 minutes. Rooms are ok, nothing special, would do with an upgrade in my opinion. The breakfast is ok as well- would be better if they had more choice. Restaurant staff during...

On my business trips in Johannesburg, I try to stay on this hotel. It is a classic boutique hotel with fantastic staff who welcomes you with such grace and warmth. It is centrally located. The rooms are spacious and neat. I will highly recommend, it feels like home.

A city hotel can be predictable and boring. The Faircity Quatermain is neither. The layout is unique with a fresh open plan appeal. The courtyard gardens are beautiful, with benches and deck chairs that invite you to enjoy the tranquility. Our room was all we expected - from cleanliness and space to the bedding and even the chosen TV channels....

The rooms are nice and clean, and the staff friendly. The location is a bit distant of central areas, so you'd need a car/uber to go to the Sandton mall, for example (the hotel also has a free transfer there). The service is really friendly and attentive, but they somehow forgot every day to put shampoo in my bathroom, so...

My stay here was very pleasant, the theme is set to be like an old English building, there is a library, lots of lounge areas, nice pool, free wifi etc. The food is very nice and the staff are very friendly. Nice safe indoor parking with 24 hour security. Well situated near Sandton Mall

The security is major issue in Johannesburg and this hotel is located in relatively safe area. The services was average and nothing exceptional to praise about.

I was given accommodation at the Faircity Quatermain Hotel, courtesy of some colleagues. I was pleasantly surprised at the calm elegance of the hotel, and its size, as the taxi pulled off the main road to the entrance.
