Departing from the ubiquitous aesthetic of the hotel industry, The Bank is a brand-new addition to Johannesburg’s hospitality landscape.

Featuring a façade made from specially designed black face-brick, and home to its own pedestrian street, a wide choice of restaurants and a flower shop, the hotel marries our modern way of living and travelling with rich heritage. 

Consequently, the interiors are elegant and contemporary, yet simultaneously provide a timeless, welcoming home from home for a diverse clientele.

Today, every bedroom in the hotel is adorned with at least four or five original artworks, making each space both unique and in keeping with the high-end, yet relaxed standards set by the overall design and ambience of the hotel.
