The Bannister Hotel launched in 2013.  Ideally situated in the heart of Braamfontein,  Johannesburg’s most vibrant district.

The Bannister Hotel is at 9 de Beer St, Braamfontein.

Unless your familiar with Johannesburg, if its dark, catch a taxi.  


We are about 700 meters from the Gautrain.  You walk out the station on the Gautrain side.  You then turn left into Wolmarans St and walk (same direction as the traffic) until you can see Mandela Bridge ahead.  Turn right in to de Beer St (one block before the bridge) and walk up until just before the traffic light.  We are on your left.  Try avoid walking near the station at night as there are hyenas prowling after dark.



 The hotel is 1.3 km the Market Theatre.  As you come out of the Market Theatre parking lot, turn right into Miriam Makeba St.

At the next traffic light, turn right into Carr St.  At the next traffic light, take the left yield onto Nelson Mandela Bridge  (avoid walking alone at night).

Cross the bridge and one intersection, and go right at the first one way road to your right - Jorrison St..  Take your next right into De Beer St.  Cross de Korte St and the hotel is on your right.


On the M1 Highway take the off-ramp for Smit St or Smit St / University.  At the bottom of the off-ramp turn left.  After a few hundred meters you go under Mandela Bridge.  Turn at the first left into De Beer St.  The hotel is on your left just before the traffic light.


The hotel is on De Beer St, between De Korte and Juta streets.  From the hotel down go the road to the first corner. Turn left into Juta St.  Across the next street and after 30 meters see parking garage entrance on right.  The parking runs on office hours unless they are expecting you, in which case you will be allowed to park 24/7.  The garage has good security.  If arriving in the evening or weekends/public holidays please ask the hotel to pre-book.  Parking costs R20 minimum or R40 overnight.  It is a safe walk to the hotel but in the evenings request hotel security to accompany you to be sure.  There is also good parking directly outside the hotel but availability is not guaranteed.
