This the best value for money hotel in Sandton, it is situated conveniently close to the highway to Pretoria and Johannesburg. I also stay here when traveling to Joburg for meetings, it is close to the Sandton CBD area and surrounding business districts. The rooms are clean and staff very friendly. Great foyer for meetings and tea and light snacks.

We didn't spend much time here so I can't give much detail, but overall, I found it just what I needed in a hotel: clean, functional, I felt secure, & it provided what you need 7 expect in a City Lodge - kettle, clean bathroom, TV, comfortable bed, etc. Was a bit of a 'schlepp' to get my suitcase up...

The hotel is well situated in Sandton, with easy access to Katherine Street. Staff were friendly and the room was clean and tastefully decorated. My room overlooked the pool, which meant that it was quiet - eventhough the hotel is situated on a busy intersection.Staff friendly & helpful. Breakfast selection was good.

We would like to thank Hotel Meninas for our unforgettable experience. Hotel Meninas has a wonderful old European feel with the benefits of modern fittings. The breakfast was delicious and the service was excellent! They accommodated us with a late check out and the use of a room before we had to go to the airport. Kind hospitality, advise, friendly...

The hotel has all the amenities required for a short business trip. Location is excellent in the heart of Sandton, easy to find and access from one of the major highways. Service at the front desk, bar and breakfast was efficient and better than many South African establishments. Room was functional. Crisp sheets, nice TV, tea and coffee making facilities,... More

Pretty standard business hotel/motel. Great breakfast (though pricey at R 100+), small pool, nice coutyard garden, wireless expensive and slow in some rooms. Felt safe and OK for 4 day stay.

The hotel was just fine. Big and clean room, great bed, the check-in was quick and everything was OK. But when I asked for an extra help from the hotel (i.e. a two-hours late check-out) they denied (even considering that my room would not be occupied and that the hotel was pretty much empty in that day). Whenever I'm travelling... More

Room are great. Clean and comfortable. No frills. On the negative side, tv is mediocre, wifi is expensive. Hotel has no vibe. It's a little soul-less. That said, it's still where I stay regularly for short business trips because it's very central, and good value for money? Don't eat the food.
