Africa’s first voco to open at Johannesburg’s most exclusive address – The Bank in Rosebank.

27 December 2021: The Bank, Rosebank’s striking new architectural gem, is the exclusive location for Africa’s first voco hotel, launching 1 February 2022, with bookings now open. 

A two-minute walk from the Gautrain (Metro Express), accompanied at your request, and surrounded by the buzzing walk-work-play district of Rosebank, voco™ The Bank Johannesburg Rosebank takes space, sophistication and artistry to the next level, with a range of beautifully appointed rooms and suites featuring the thoughtful, relaxed and unstuffy design so characteristic of the voco™ brand, as well as an enviable collection of original local artwork.

An upscale sanctuary in the heart of one of the city’s trendiest districts, an international business hub renowned for its shopping, art and design, and exclusivity, voco The Bank Johannesburg Rosebank delivers on the promise of its name – ‘to invite’ or to ‘come together’ in Latin. Expect the warmest of welcomes and personal touches throughout the guest’s journey that combine all those familiar comforts and the indulgences of your favourite hotel, with the quality and reassurance of a global and respected brand, the IHG® Group.

This is your opportunity to indulge in some well-deserved ‘me time’, settling into the hotel’s stylish guest rooms which are filled with thoughtful treats and comforts including cosy bedding, luxury Antipodes bathroom amenities, and fast Wi-Fi. 

Double volume ceilings, chic modern bathrooms and valet parking complete this distinctive upscale experience, while business travellers will be delighted with thoughtful features such as the in-room hand-held clothes steamers and large workspace with international adaptors and USB ports.

For a taste of ‘voco life’, the exciting and 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 up. voco Johannesburg Rosebank also features a fully equipped gym.

Guests staying at voco The Bank Johannesburg Rosebank can enjoy in-room dining selecting from Proud Mary’s innovative menu featuring delicious small plates, salads, grills and a boutique wine list you would find at no other eatery in town.

With its strong commitment to ensuring the highest levels of sustainability, reflected in the multi-award-winning building’s use of mainly renewable energy sources and voco The Bank Johannesburg Rosebank’s leading global sustainable practices, guests will be assured that their stay is both the epitome of comfort whilst being easy on the planet.

Occupying six floors of this mixed-used building, voco The Bank Johannesburg Rosebank shares this innovative 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.
