After a company awards event, we were booked in at the Holiday Inn. There was nothing spectacular about this hotel... great location, average service, good room... everything that you would expect - average stay

We made use of the hotel as a sleep over after business award function. Room was ok but little info was communicated by reception desk. They seem to think everybody knows it all. When we came back just before 2300, the bar was de facto closed all ready. Guests wanting to order something was met with a rather hostile attittude.... More

I stayed in 3 different rooms at the HI over a 2-week period. Met my minimum requirements of clean, comfortable, safe. One was top floor corner facing street--so lots of windows and view, but some street noise. One was sixth floor, I think, facing pool--OK. One was sixth floor, I think facing pool, near the end or corner--larger than other... More

I stayed here 4 days on business and what I particularly liked about the place was the location. Right next to the Zone (a shopping mall), I was able to head to the mall to grab a bit after a long day at work. There's a cinema there too. And there's a Gautrain station right in front of the hotel... More

The Holiday Inn in Rosebank is directly connected to 3 Shopping centres. Very convenient as you don’t even have to cross a road to get there. It is also right next door to a Gautrain Station to other shopping centres like Sandton City and the Airport. The rooms are well appointed and spacious and the staff competent and friendly. A...

If you are looking for a centrally (Rosebank) located hotel in Johannesburg, where everything works, this should be your choice. The design of the rooms is sleek-contemporary. The staff is not only competent, but always with a smile. The buffet-breakfast, both in choice and quality, is above the usual Holiday Inn standards

Right beside the Rosebank Gautrain station, this hotel is an excellent base for business meetings around Johannesburg. The rooms are mostly standard fare, clean and presentable with the Holiday Inn's trademark variety of differently-stuffed pillows. There's a safe, fridge but no minibar. Make sure you specify whether you would like a bath or a shower as few rooms have both.... More

Have praise to share regarding this Holiday Inn in terms of location, quality and price. Right at the train station stop and with shopping and restaurants just minutes walk away this hotel is hard to beat. The breakfast buffet was really good too.
