Soweto Hotel and Conference Centre's management stresses the following pillars of our culture to exemplify our warmth, generosity, humility, kindness and natural hospitality as you would experience in any South African home when one is received as a guest.

Kliptown is a suburb of the former black township of Soweto in Gauteng, South Africa, and is located about 17 km southwest of Johannesburg. The population of Kliptown is between 38,000 and 45,000. It is the oldest residential district of Soweto, and was first laid out in 1891 on land which formed part of Klipspruit farm. The farm was named after the klipspruit that runs nearby. From 1903, the area was home to informal settlements, and the area now contains a mixture of purpose-built housing and a large number of shacks and other informal homes which form the Chris Hani and Dlamini settlements

The Soweto Hotel and Conference Centre offers 46 uniquely decorated Deluxe Rooms and two individually decorated Presidential Suites. The hotel has rooms overlooking the historic Union Street of Kliptown or the Eternal Flame on the Walter Sisulu Square of Dedication and some rooms also have balconies offering magnificent views of Kliptown and the neighbouring locations of Soweto.

Each room features a business desk with high speed Internet access, in-room television with DStv channels, electronic safe, hairdryer, international direct dial access and 18-hour in-room dining. There are also allocated rooms for smokers and guests with special needs.

A traditional township buffet features mogodu and mnqushu, morogo and roasted butternut just to name a few favourites; comfort food just like gogo used to prepare it. Chef Jafta’s wide experience also lends well to the newly introduced menu were his culinary versatility goes far in taking care of everybody’s tastes. This is evident in the smoked ostrich Carpaccio served with fruit salsa and the signature Sizzling Jazz Maniacs Fillet served with mushrooms on a polenta patty.

The music of the townships served as an important platform and vehicle for developing singers and instrumentalists. The 1950s was the era of Jazz development in South Africa. The 60-seat Jazz Maniacs Restaurant takes its name after the famous Jazz Maniacs group that was well-known in the 50s. Today, local jazz artists convene at this elegantly decorated venue, and entertain diners with jazz of yesteryear as well contemporary musical sounds.

Soweto South Africa

Soweto  Accommodation
Soweto, like neighbouring Johannesburg, rose up as a direct result of the discovery of Gold in 1885, and is a product of bygone segregationist apartheid planning.

The gold rush drew thousands of people to the area to seek their fortunes and to gain employment. The majority of the population was black, living in makeshift shanty towns near the gold mines in the centre of the town. The need for labour continued to increase, and migrant labour was set in place with most of the workers living in mining compounds. The living conditions in both the compounds and the shanty towns was most often shocking.

Soweto is a lively, vibrant town bursting with passion for the future. It makes for a fascinating cultural experience for those who want to explore more than the usual tourist traps.

Take a day tour or if you have time, stay for a few days to get a real feel for Soweto. Visit the heritage sites, museums, restuarants and shebeens and feel the bustling energy that is Soweto, with informal traders plying their wares on every corner.

Soweto is the largest black urban residential area in the country, with close to a million people. It has a young cosmopolitan culture, often setting trends in music, fashion, language and dance.
