My stay at Arum Place was pleasant. The place was clean and inviting and staff were efficient. The hostess even went so far as to drive me to my appointment and back which I am sure she did not have to do. She also arranged for a taxi to take me to the airport. The breakfast was also good. Not only would I stay there again, I would recommend it to others visiting central Johannesburg.
