Best hotel in Johannesburg area (Houghton)
This hotel was exquisite. We stayed in the inspiration penthouse overlooking the city. The first floor comes with a full kitchen, laundry room, living room, dining room, and two luxuriously adorned bedrooms. The top floor has a panoramic view of the city with glass from top to bottom with an huge flat screen TV ideal for movie nights. In addition, the top floor has an huge balcony with lounge chairs, a private swimming pool, and hot tub. There is a restaurant right at the hotel. I had breakfast there one morning and the food was fantastic. Next time I travel to Johannesburg, this hotel is where I will stay. Don’t forget to bring your golf gear with you if you play golf because there is a golf course on the property. Overall, this hotel gets a 10 out of 10.

Houghton is very deserving of its 5 star rating!
The Houghton is beautiful, clean, safe and comfortable. The staff is amazing and accommodating. The spa is fabulous! We did several spa treatments, used the sauna & steam rooms and swam in the heated pool. Also, the fit bar gym was the absolute best hotel gym my daughter has ever used. The food at the restaurants were delicious. We ate at Nova Bistro and Sejour. We chose the Houghton for a 2 night stay after a wedding in Vic Falls & safari in Hawange, Zimbabwe. It was absolutely perfect and I highly recommend!!

The Houghton is a beautiful property. It’s filled with lovely artwork, that’s inclusive of Mandela. Guests are welcomed with roses and a bottle of champagne. The rooms are stunning as well. I could write a whole page of things that I loved about this property, but in short, it was the esthetics, the food, and the customer service. When I return to Johannesburg, this will be my go-to hotel.
