    Stayed two nights. An hotels that deserves its 5-star rating with swift check-in, no-fuss upgrade, excellent food. The room was comfortable with attention to detail without being ostentatious. The valet parking was friendly and reasonable in cost with prompt response when I needed my car. An hotel I would recommend and would visit again.

    Excellent from front of desk, to the concierge, to house keeping! Thank you for a wonderful stay every time. The rooms are fabulous and the hotel ambience superb. My favorite area is the pool, early morning soaking up SA's sun rays or cocktails at sunset. Breakfast is delicious!

    It's a very bling bling hotel with an awesome breakfast but..... at the front desk when you arrive it will take for ever to check in and the don't have a gym. If you want to work out you can pay (250 rands) and go to Virgin in front . A part from all those the rooms are spacious and... More

    In this sort of hotel bracket a regular business traveller expects a lot. The African Pride delivers a lot but ultimately falls just a bit short. On the plus side, the African Pride is not a "cookie-cutter" American-style box like a Hyatt. Staff are welcoming and very friendly. The hotel is decorated in an imaginative and quirky fashion, which makes... More

    Rather upscale, very modern hotel nestled in the Melrose Arch area. Nice bedroom and amenities but I do find trouble with the almost flat shower stall. Those deep beautiful tubs can present difficulty with getting out with nothing for support. But other than that it was a wonderful stay for the 3 nights I was there.

    This is a fine hotel, aspiring to its advertised 5* status, but not quite yet getting there. It lacks common 5* facilities like a gym and swimming pool, but has an arrangement with the nearby Virgin Active, at a nominal rate. There is an unusual pool bar, with tables and chairs sitting in ~12"/30cm of water, so you can keep... More
