If you like and prefer an Agatha Christie style hotel, I think Faircity Falstaff is exactly what you are looking for. It is out of the city in a luxurious residential area, which is very dark and almost hard to find the entrance. Then the rooms and furnitures are very oldish.

I was fortunate enough to get an early check-in. The place is old-world charming with dark furniture and heavy drapes. My sense was that it's primarily a hotel for business travelers. Staff were friendly when I checked in and I didn't even have to ask a porter for help. He

Dear Kath J Thank you for rating us. We are delighted to know that our staff were friendly and promptly assisted you at check in. We are glad that overall you had a great stay. We are sorry that our prices were not in your range. We do offer specials on our low season and should you visit us during this time, I am certain that the prices will be more affordable. We have forwarded your comments regarding the "stuffy" atmosphere to our Housekeeping Manager so that she can assess and investigate further. I hope you will change your mind and consider staying with us again. Regards, Shaun Wheeler General Manager

They did not charge us either. We just paid for an early check it but it was worth it since we were really early.

"Get a room away from the pool area (some diners have dinner around the pool and it can get noisy)."
"Rooms in the second floor are more preferable."
"Ask for a room away from the Rivonia Road side."
"Staff members very helpful. Precious and Nonkululeko were exceptionally helpful and resourceful."
"I am not sure what the standard rooms are like but it wasent much more money to upgrade to a luxury room and it is well worth it."
US$76 - US$146 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
