I am a youth leader taking a group to Port Elizabeth. Because of the way our flights worked out we had to spend the night in Johannesburg. I emailed 4 different hotels and Premiere Hotel was the only one to get back to me in a timely fashion. They were extremely helpful and responsive. Mercy was great to work with. They also arraigned transportation for all 34 of us from the airport to the hotel and once at the hotel we all ate in their restaurant and the food was wonderful. Pete, the restaurant manager, was extremely helpful. Overall Premiere hotel took what was the most stressful part of our trip and executed it wonderfully. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The overall amenities of the hotel were absolutely wonderful. The management of this hotel should be proud. 10/10 I cannot recommend them enough.

Excellent property, best of breakfasts, easy location

Reviewed By Ron H

Stayed here for 2 nights while in Johannesburg. We were originally on the 11th floor but moved to 19th right away due to music or loud noise from a neighbor. They were very good about moving us immediately. Room's were identical and both very nice and well equipped with electric outlets for US, EU, S.Africa and USB's, coffee and whatever is needed. Breakfast buffet was outstanding, menu of cooked items, must be among the best. Nicest part was the staff who let me keep the room until 3 as my flight was not until that evening. That made it much easier for us to visit the mall and return to the room and seemed very nice and respectful. Hotel can be loud in the atrium and when the door was opened but it must be well sound proofed as we did not hear if from the room. Suggest requesting a higher room though as it may be quieter.

Good hotel but great gym

Reviewed By jonnyb205

The hotel itself is ok, staff are attentive and helpful. The rooms are a little dated but the best thing about the hotel is by far the gym. The gym is split across three levels, has a 25m swimming pool, sauna, steam, jacuzzi etc. Would definitely recommend for anyone on business that wants a good room with very good workout facilities.

Maropeng Boutique Hotel

'Maropeng', is a Setswana word meaning 'returning to the place of origin' and this was kept in mind when the interiors of the hotel were designed. The four elemental forces of nature, earth, fire, water and ice that kick-started our planet some 3-billion years ago feature prominently in the overall look. The 24-bed boutique hotel is a five minute walk from South Africa's premier tourist attraction and 10 km (6 mi) from the Sterkfontein Caves.
