The Residence Johannesburg

Charming luxury boutique hotel, in the perfect location from which to explore Johannesburg

The Residence Johannesburg

The Residence Johannesburg is a delightful boutique hotel with just 17 rooms and suites, located in the heart of South Africa’s economic capital.

Designed in a grand old style, the hotel offers a luxurious place to lay your head after a long flight, or a safari. 

All rooms are equipped with outdoor showers, Nespresso machines, private balconies or courtyards, and most have their own fireplace – perfect for those chilly Johannesburg mornings and evenings in July and August. The suites are all set up to accommodate two adults and two children, so this is a great choice for families.

There are three swimming pools to choose from, one of which is heated, and there’s a tennis court and gym for those looking to burn some calories. 

In the evening, the piano bar serves cocktails, accompanied by gentle, live music, and guests gather around to share stories.

The location, equidistant from Sandton and central Johannesburg means that the tourist sights of the city are all within easy reach. The Residence is the perfect base for those wanting a couple of nights to learn about South Africa’s rich history, or simply indulge in the continent’s finest shopping, either before or after exploring the rest of the country.
