Very kind staff and owners, comfortable room, beautiful interior, all delicious food in the wonderful restaurant/bar. A home away from home. In center of the city, great locations to go out and visit nearby. A home spot to be.

Thank you so much for your review! It makes us very happy to hear that you felt at home and comfortable at The Bannister. That electrical issue has now been corrected. We look forward to another visit from you. Regards, The Bannister Team

The hotel is a 3 star and not 4 star. Room, bedding, shower needs a proper cleaning. Electricity keeps tripping. Only reason why I stayed was because it was for 1 night and I already paid, couldn't waste the money.More

Thank you for your review. Yes. You are quite correct, The Bannister is a Budget Hotel. We do not call ourselves a 4 star hotel, and do not charge 4-star prices accordingly. We did have an electricity issue that was beyond our control, but that...More

Everything was good besides smelly bathroom. I was very happy there. Being there was making o everything I needed easier to do. But I had the best time to submit everything I went to Johannesburg for.

About
Description
The Bannister Hotel is an independant, luxury-budget hotel in Braamfontein, Johannesburg. Across Mandela Bridge from the inner-city, the district is one of the most exciting area of Johannesburg for artists, ...More foodies (we are opposite The Neighbourgoods Market), hipsters, musicians (The Orbit Jazz Club is 30m away!), academics & many of Joburg's corporate and government head offices. The hotel and our restaurant and bar are casual, warm and welcoming, a second home to our regular guests. If you are seeking the exciting experience that Johnnesburg and it's people can be, The Bannister Hotel is the key to unlocking the true vibrancy of the Africa's most 'woke' city. There are a number of great bars and places to eat in the immediate neighbourhood. We are also close several galleries, theaters, museums & the cities transport networks. Less

Hi Thats not a problem we normally have. It has happened when the laundry was delivered late. If it happens the front desk should explain and offer them a coffee. Did you have such a problem?
