Honestly the hotel just needs to shutdown and completely revamped. The carpet has a terrible stench and is badly stained and I had to lay my clothes over the linen to sleep. Thank God i just needed to lay my head for about 2 hours cause I could have never slept there through the night. The staff is very firndly and helpful though their resources are limited

I honestly didn't know about SOWETO hotel until the day I slept there and I must say I am overly impressed with it. I'm from the East Rand and I've slept at various five stars out of Gauteng and The Soweto Hotel meets the standard of the types of Hotels I've been to. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. I'm humbled by what I experienced there. Big up SOWETO Hotel and Conference Centre

I enjoyed my stay and staff tried hard. The duty manager went out of his way to accommodate my request. The room i stayed in, was neat. The room service menu is limited but the food was great . The outside area can be daunting, I would appreciate if front end staff can advise on things to do in Soweto and have recommended transport.
