A new addition to the Johannesburg’s city center, this stunning apartment is above the bustling streets and 10 mins Uber from Maboneng, Constitution Hill and the Apartheid Museum. And 20 minutes from the Airport, Sandton and Nelson Mandela's house in Soweto. It's within easy reach of most of Joburg’s tourist offerings, has a hot tub and giant chess set on its private roof terrace as well as access to the shared penthouse rooftop pool and solar heated hot water.
It is the perfect base for friends & family to explore Joburg's Urban Revival, Soweto & beyond.
This apartment is beautiful and stylish but the real value is the local knowledge and recommendations provided by the hosts. Joburg has so many beautiful places to explore and people to meet and, like any big city, places you don’t want to stumble into blindly. Stay safe while experiencing the best of Joburg by following our up to date recommendations of places to go (and to steer clear of) whilst you’re in town.
Our aim is to help you ‘cultivate an experience’ of authentic Joburg by connecting you with some of the right drivers, tour guides, restaurants, experiences etc. to support your planning and make the most of your time in town, with our apartment as your home base.
This stunning apartment is spread over the 9th, 10th and 11th floor of the heritage (listed), former Barclays Bank HQ, building on the oldest street in Johannesburg.
Providing a different (some say more authentic) Johannesburg experience to the Northern suburbs, it is perfectly located to experience the city's urban revival and access the coolest parts of Jo'burg, whilst not having to put up with the noise that goes with actually staying in these 'lively' areas.
Many don't realise that Johannesburg is also a pan-African cultural centre. The location of this apartment gives much easier access to those aspects of our city, including the sights and sounds that come with being in a developing African city. If you are coming all the way to Africa looking for the pristine Porsche/Rolex/Jimmy Choo experience of Johannesburg, you're likely to be happier in areas such as Sandton.
The apartment is less than 10 minutes walk to the closest Citysightseeing open-top hop-on-hop-off tour bus stop.
To get a sense of the area Think Brooklyn New York, Downtown LA, Brixton, Shorditch or Hackney in London, 30 years ago. Jo'burg has finally broken free from the chains of its troubled past. And, lead by 'Urban cool' centers such as the CBD West, Maboneng and Braamfontein, is now listed amongst the best places to visit, in the Southern Hemisphere (do a web search on recent Johannesburg articles in publications such as Rough Guide, GQ Magazine and The Guardian for a non-biased opinion).
