This place is so wonderful that it warrants another review. I have stayed there regularly over the past 4 years and make sure I always go back. Clico epitomises everything that you expect from a boutique hotel. Such a classy establishement. I would not want to wtay anywhere else when visiting Johannesburg. Clico comes highly recommended and lives up to... More

So this was a real disappointment. We went for our anniversary, first thing that bothered me is no handy plug points. That is a pre-requisite for hotels. However the real problem was in spite of the fact that we booked the room for two, there was one cup on the tea station, one glass with the wine, one pillow sweet... More

Dear Valued Guest, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. The Clico team were devastated by your comments and subsequent internal investigations have confirmed there were gaps in our service on that day. We pride ourselves with paying attention to detail and most certainly let yourself and your wife down on that day ....... More

I came to the hotel not knowing what to expect but this place simply blew me away. A real gem hidden by the ordinary gate. It is a small hotel but it kept at an excellent condition. Upon entering I was greeted by name and the check in took literally less than a minute as the form was already printed.... More

This is the second time I have stayed at your lovely hotel. Just like the first I enjoyed my time. The staff is very attentive, the food is great and the rooms are wonderful. This is the only place I will ever stay while in Johannesburg. All other hotels do not stand up to the service here.

If you want all the features of a massive chain hotel then please do yourself, and - more importantly - the other guests, a favor and stay at the nearby Hyatt. However, if you are a more discerning traveler who prefers refinement over sameness then this is a fantastic hotel. There is a quaintness that has to be experienced to... More

As a luxury travel writer for World-Adventurer.com, I've stayed in many boutique hotels around the world. Clico (named after the champagne) provided a personalized stay that one would only expect at a close friend's home. The quaint guesthouse turned luxury boutique with a fine-dining restaurant does not disappoint. This is what I loved about the stay: The restaurant was wonderful,... More

Stayed twice here in the space of a week, and my fifth year back. It's a little piece of calm and quiet in Rosebank. A lovely Guesthouse, the staff always look after me incredibly well.

Warm welcome, staff of every department, (beverage,restaurant, cleaning,security guard and of course front desk) are helpful, engaging, remember us and laugh at past engagements with one or other of them. It's our place of choice in Jhb. Food always great and willing to accommodate special requests if at all possible.

This is a beautifully appointed and well managed gem of an hotel, which feels very peaceful and quietly luxurious. The staff very helpful, friendly and caring, without being fussy or conspicuous. In a bustling place like Jo'burg this was a wonderful retreat and I wish I could have stayed longer! It will be my first choice when in Jo'burg again.... More
