Verified reviewexcellent

July 2010 was the most recent of several stays at the Soweto Hotel. They provide excellent accommodations and good food in a historic setting. We have valued learning about the Freedom Charter, and rich history of the area. And we enjoy walking the Square and surrounding areas. This is our preferred hotel in the Johannesburg area. My husband and I strongly recommend the Soweto Hotel to all visitors who want to learn history and current perceptions from the residents. It's always been a rich experience and we feel perfectly safe (without armed guards!)
