12 Decades Johannesburg Art Hotel

About this Hotel

Price From $113

Johannesburg was founded in 1886, and that’s where the hotel 12 Decades begins, too. Each of its 12 guest rooms is dedicated to a successive 10-year span in the city’s evolution, with themed designs by 12 South African creative teams. Furniture stars Dokter and Misses, for example, filled the 1916–1926 room with their angular, Bauhaus-inspired pieces, while T-shirt designers Love Jozi went graphic in their 1946–1956 room: The toilet bowl is stamped with the names of racist apartheid laws. The year-old hotel is an ideal jumping-off point for exploring the Maboneng Precinct, a regeneration project that also includes the Arts on Main gallery complex and a handful of low-key restaurants and cafes.

Free Wi-Fi? No.

Credit Cards Accepted MC, Visa.
