I've always loved the view of northern Johannesburg from Munro Drive and was delighted to accept an invitation for a business function at the Munro Boutique Hotel. The view over Sandton was breath-taking - the splendour of the Jacaranda trees stretching as far as the eye could see. The garden at the bottom looked a bit tired, though and was... More

This is an absolutely fascinating hotel with great food and comfort! I found the hotel a bit pricey seeing that there are other places that offer similar room comfort and luxury but the views and the hotel style itself is what makes it different.

The place is amazing, it is out of this world experience, looking at the whole of Johannesburg its an experience once would never forget. The service was excellent and the scenario is marvelous, beautiful flowers.

The GM if The Munro Hotel collected me from the Gautrain Station in Sandton, Gauteng, South Africa. Arriving and seeing the most incredible view (which I did not know could be seen in Gauteng) of the area. The hotel is magnificent with only 6 bedrooms, each with an own identity, personal attention from the hotel staff. Breakfast, Dinner or any... More

I arrived in the evening to prepare for a wedding the next day so my first impression and what literally took my breath away was the Skyline of Johannesburg. The hotel gives off a truly intimate vibe from the workers to the bedrooms, it is literally a home away from home. The service is quick, satisfying and readily available. You... More

The Munro is the epitome of luxury and style combined with sincere hospitality in an awesome setting. 5 Rooms only (more are being added, as well as a Spa) and each room is superbly decorated in a unique theme and setting. The pool deck and the surrounding gardens are stunning as is the view over the whole of Sandton. The... More

My stay at The Munro Boutique was absolutely fantastic. The staff of the hotel, the building itself, the breathtaking view in the backyard with the amazing infinity pool (not heated, though!). I can only recommend this place and will surely check-in again, whenever I should be in Johannesburg again.

Rarely have I stayed in a nicer, more hospitable hotel. The proprietor, Mark Kaplan, has created something special. The rooms are all spacious and beautifully decorated, with all the amenities you could need. The staff is wonderful and accommodated all of our various needs. Breakfast was great and served in a spacious dining room by an incredibly nice staff. I... More

The hotel was beautiful and staff just lovely. The room, atrium and balcony were beautifully decorated and a very peaceful respite in the hectic city. I only wish I could have stayed longer. Also, dinner was delicious!!

Wow - I have often stayed in various hotels for business trips to Johannesburg which included weekend downtime. This last trip I was blown away by the hospitality and the venue of the Munro! The hotel sits on Houghton Ridge with breathtaking views and 1 minute access to the M-1 highway which is very useful in Joburg for getting around.... More
