A great accommodation choice for Johannesburg

Back in the urban environment today with an idea for how and where to stay in Johannesburg.

Long considered the 'poor relation' to Cape Town in terms of visitor-friendly cities, Joburg has shaken off its dingy past and is fast becoming one of the most attractive places to live, work and visit in Southern Africa. Granted, it doesn't have Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean but the city simply bursts with creativity and buzz.

Today, we're highlighting a superb five-star offering in the boutique hotel sector, halfway between the city centre and the Sandton in the fashionable district of Rosebank.

The Winston Hotel is set in a Herbert Baker building, who was South Africa's pre-eminent architect in the Arts and Crafts period and right up into the 1930s. As such, the building itself is a wonder to behold, retaining most of its period features.

The Winston offers over 30 rooms in three classes, all as individually designed as each other with rates starting at a super affordable R2 550 per room per night (US$212).

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.
