Oh my, Capital Hotel Menlyn Maine

Tshwane is often considered Johannesburg’s less hip, less sophisticated and less cutting-edge cousin, but The Capital Hotel Group, South Africa’s fastest-growing hotel group, is set to change all that.The Capital Menlyn Maine, the group’s newest apartment hotel, opens in Tshwane’s trendy new Menlyn Maine precinct on 15 March 2017 in a move that will revolutionise the accommodation industry in the city, bringing with it cutting-edge sophistication. Situated on top of the Central Square shopping centre, the 200-room The Capital Menlyn Maine is Tshwane’s first high-end, extended-stay hotel and will offer the flexibility and affordability for which The Capital Hotel Group has become renowned.An apartment hotel or extended-stay hotel is a serviced apartment complex that uses a hotel-style booking system. It is similar to renting an apartment, but with no fixed contracts and occupants can “check out” whenever they wish.  The Capital Menlyn Maine will allow tourists and visitors to Tshwane to customise their accommodation to suit their budget and their needs.  

Guests can choose from a standard, executive room or a one bedroom apartment, or a combination of rooms that makes up a two- or three-bedroom apartment. They can also share a standard room or stay alone – as standard rooms have king size beds that can be converted to twins as required.
Rooms – with fully equipped kitchens and laundry facilities – are kitted to the highest standard, with each living space expertly designed with superb finishes and timeless design.  The range of options available also extends to dining – guests can self-cater or use the hotel’s restaurant or room-service. A host of additional benefits include complimentary Wi-Fi, free laundry and parking.

“Flexibility and convenience are the bywords for The Capital Hotel Group. We are the fastest-growing hotel chain in South Africa because we listened to what tourists and visitors were asking for. They don’t want to pay for an expensive hotel room with expensive frills they barely use; they want affordability, convenience and flexibility, and The Capital Hotel Group gives it to them. Now, thanks to The Capital Menlyn Maine,visitors to Tshwane can experience for themselves the luxury, flexibility and convenience for which The Capital Hotel Group is known,” says The Capital Hotel Group founder and managing director Marc Wachsberger.  Adds Wachsberger: “The Capital Menlyn Maine is a first for Tshwane in many ways: it is the sexiest hotel to be built in the city for many years; it is the first high-end apartment hotel in the city; and it brings with it the best and most advanced concepts in hospitality.”

Wachsberger also points out that The Capital Menlyn Maine is situated in the new, green Menlyn Maine precinct, which is also set to transform Tshwane’s reputation to that of a city that is on-trend.  “The Capital Menlyn Maine is literally on top of Central Square in the award-winning Menlyn Maine precinct, which includes eight trendy restaurants, three premium supermarkets, as well as a high-end Virgin Active gym and Spa de la Veille. Plus, with over 75 stores to choose from, and the Time Square Casino across the road, you can have it all. “Step out of your room and into Central Square – whether you need a pharmacy, a liquor outlet, high-end retail, a bookstore or a Starbucks coffee, it’s all within easy reach.Our new hotel and the precinct are going to transform Tshwane from Johannesburg’s poorer cousin to one that can compete with, and surpass, it,” he says.
