I stayed at the  Courtyard Hotel in Rosebank a few weeks ago. It is easy to reach the hotel from OT airport via public transport using the Gautrain (you will need to change once at Sandton). 

I stayed in a studio room. It was large, quiet and comfortable with everything within it to ensure a comfortable and independent stay.

Despite its location aside the main road, the Courtyard Hotel Rosebank manages to feel very secluded and leafy due to the clever construction of a wall and lots of plants.

The bathrooms are large and have a bath and shower and a selection of complimentary toiletries.

All the staff here are friendly and really helpful. The room attendants offer a turndown service and left lovely treats on my pillow.

Notes on the location:                    
Great location for:

  •  Anyone wanting to stay near the airport.
  •  Anyone in Johannesburg for business in Rosebank or Sandton.
  •  You will need to ask reception to call a taxi for you. People in Johannesburg don't use taxi's much so it may take some time for one to arrive.
  •  The hotel is located directly opposite the Holiday Inn, the wall and greenery make it less obvious to spot!
  •  There is are 2 large malls within the shopping district right opposite the hotel.
