Hg2 : The Hedonist

Balalaika Hotel

Neither the most opulent nor the most expensive hotel in Sandton, the four-star Balalaika is included because it is affordable and good value for money, especially for the hedonist who wants to live like a rock star, but may not exactly have the pay packet. Centrally located, next to the Village Walk shopping centre and opposite the Johannesburg Securities Exchange, there are a few shops, cinemas and restaurants nearby or it’s just a short walk to Sandton City. The 330 rooms (yes, it’s pretty damn big) range from comfortably basic to, well, comfortably basic. There is a garden, swimming pool and gym to unwind in or for those who enjoy a drink the Lord’s Bar is English pub-like (well, sort of) – but it does get busy (and buzzy) in the evenings – a coffee shop and a pool bar for long soaking-up-the-rays lunches.
