New Hotel Brand, Voco, Opens in Rosebank, Johannesburg

Bookings have open for Africa’s first voco hotel, set to launch on February 1, 2022, at The Bank, Rosebank in Johannesburg.

A two-minute walk from the Gautrain (Metro Express) and surrounded by the buzzing “walk-work-play” district of Rosebank, voco The Bank Johannesburg Rosebank has a range of rooms and suites featuring relaxed and unstuffy design, as well as collection of original local artwork. 

The guestrooms are filled with such comforts as cozy bedding, Antipodes bathroom amenities and fast Wi-Fi. Double volume ceilings, modern bathrooms and valet parking complete the upscale experience, while business travelers would like the in-room handheld clothes steamers and large workspace with international adaptors and USB ports. For a taste of “voco life”, the modern mid-century inspired all-day eatery, Proud Mary, is located on the ground floor of The Bank building, while Workshop17, a haven for remote working, can be found just one floor above. 

voco Johannesburg Rosebank also has a fully equipped gym. Guests staying at the hotel can order in-room dining from Proud Mary, whose menu includes small plates, salads, grills and a boutique wine list. 

Occupying six floors of the mixed-used building, which mainly uses renewable energy sources, voco The Bank Johannesburg Rosebank shares the space with signature tenants such as Rand Merchant Investments, Bespoken Man Barbers and Tailor Me, with the Rosebank Mall, The Firs and The Zone shopping districts being right on its doorstep. For guests on the clock, private Workshop17 meeting and event spaces can be booked seamlessly through the hotel.
