We needed to be near the Jewish community and not too far from the airport and this place fit the bill. The mall downstairs had a kosher market and bagel store which was an unexpected bonus.

The room was comfortable and clean and the balcony was a nice touch. The staff was courteous and helpful. The price was a good value for the room amenities, location and overall environment as part of the downstairs mall area.

This is our go to property in Johannesburg. It’s absolutely ideal for families and is in a great location for safety and access to the joburg shopping and transit points. This property has all the benefits of an apartment with all the convenience of a hotel. It also has 2 grocery stores in the building which make self catering a breeze.
We highly recommend this property for people who need the space of an apartment while not foregoing the want of a hotel.

We were very happy with our stay. The check in process was simple, the hotel parking was safe, and the room had a great view. Will stay here again. There were also several stores and services offered within the hotel, which was very convenient.

Genesis All Suite Hotel is best for a family vacation. Its more of like renting a mini apartment for a few days. Design is in such a way that more more than two people can share the Hotel Room. Its well demarcated in the inside and each one can have their own minimal space and you meet in the living room which is also very spacious. It actually has a fully functional kitchen with gas, a very big refrigerator unit that is actually family size and all kitchen ware that you may require.

So if you are interested in cooking when on your trip, this is the best place for you. Fortunately a super market is just on the same block where you can shop whatever you may want to cook. The WiFi was really good and fast. The room where I was had a small balcony. GYM was present but fairly small. TV in the room was also a small size screen but good enough.

Breakfast was basic. And the space fairly small and not able to accommodate very many people at the same time. Cost was really manageable. That was actually the 2nd time I was at the same location. No regrets really.

Wonderful accommodation, clean, and spacious, with all you need. Location is great, we definitely recommend this place, particularly if you need to stay somewhere for shabbos.

However, two small caveats.
1. There was no A/c in the dining room, so only the bedrooms had A/c.
2. Strangely bathroom doors didn't close properly, this was a bit disturbing for obvious reasons.

Beside for these two small issues, the Genesis Suites were fabulous!

Stayed 4 nights in early October 2016 with a friend, on the recommendation of another friend who had stayed previously. Whilst called Genesis All-Suite Hotel, these are actually service apartments with daily housekeeping, onsite dining, and room service. Although we had booked a 1-bedroom suite for 2 people, they didn’t have the requested twin beds ready, so upgraded us to a 2-bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms (1 en suite, with bathtub), which ironically, had a twin bedroom and a double bedroom.

The suites are beautifully decorated with high-end furnishings and modern gadgets including microwave, flat screen TV, and air-conditioning, and would be very comfortable even for a long stay. The WiFi signal is good and the unit had adequate cupboard space, and an electronic safe. Our unit also had a big balcony running the length of the living room and master bedroom, with awesome views to the East, all the way to Jo’burg airport and beyond.

Genesis All-Suites Hotel conveniently offers 2 onsite ATMs, 2 grocery stores at the lower levels, ample open air and underground parking, a gym and a (tiny) swimming pool. It is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood, although the area didn’t look very accessible (we had a local friend drive us around town).

Reception staff was friendly, as were the restaurant staff at breakfast. The breakfast area adjoining reception is small, but the breakfast offering is good - hot & cold continental, choice of cut fresh fruit, a local dish, and eggs and coffee made to order.

Maintenance staff was very efficient - I informed reception about a fused light bulb & a slow shower drain in the morning, and it had been fixed by the time we got back in the evening. Housekeeping, on the other hand, was inconsistent. They left small bottles of water in both bedrooms the 1st night, a tiny chocolate (no water) the second, and the tiny chocolate only in one bedroom on the third night. Similarly, turndown service happened on the first day, but not the second or subsequent nights. However, bathroom toiletries were well replenished, and a glass cookie jar we broke was replaced without us being charged for it.

Bottom line: Do I recommend Genesis All-Suites Hotel? Yes! Would I stay here again? Absolutely!

We recently spent the weekend at Genesis Suites as part of a South Africa/Victoria Falls vacation. Our stay at Genesis easily met our expectations.

The Genesis units are sleekly attractive, roomy and comfortable. There are two supermarkets and other services on the premises. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were very happy with our choice of accommodations.

A note about the layout of the two-bedroom units: There is a very luxurious bathroom in the master suite--but without any separation from the sleeping area. This worked fine for my wife and me, because we were able to also use the second, smaller bathroom. (The price differential between the one- and two-bedroom units was insubstantial, so we booked a two-bedroom.) But I'm not sure how happy two couples sharing would be.

Also, Genesis is particularly well suited to Orthodox Jewish visitors to Johannesburg. It is centrally located in the Glenhazel neighborhood, which is a hub of Jewish life. Genesis is within easy walking distance of dozens of synagogues and kosher food establishments. And the Genesis staff is familiar with the needs (room keys, lighting, etc.) of its Sabbath-observant guests.

How far away is this hotel from the subway station??

Good day We do not have subways in Johannesburg. The only train is the Gautrain from the airport into Sandton, Rosebank or Pretoria. We can arrange transport from the airport if required and we are 25 minutes away from the airport. I trust this helps Regards Tracey

Hi, I can’t speak to the number of floor plans because I just don’t know. But I can speak on the bathrooms. Our suite had two bathrooms. And both had doors to close off for privacy. The master had a shower stall and separate tub. The other bathroom just had the shower stall.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom and a 4 bedroom suite. Both had washers and dryers. I think the way this is set up they all seem like apartments. No laundry detergent in the room as far as I could see but there is a grocery store on the first floor of the building with everything.
