The Monarch is a great little hotel with loads of character and beautiful suites. Roomy and exquisitely styled. Staff are well trained courteous and welcoming! This is probably the best value for money available in the area! Well worth the visit!

We stayed 5 days at this luxury boutique hotel in Rosebank. The royal suite was very spacious and comfortable. We love the separate living room and complimentary stocked fridge. Service was exceptional. Breakfast was very good. We will stay here again the next time.

Our short stay at the hotel was excellent. Service was fantastic and the room exceeded all our expectations. Lindiwe, our hostess made us feel that our custom was really valued and made us feel very welcome.

The Monarch Hotel was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed. The service was amazing. All you had to do was ask and the staff did everything in their power to accommodate your request. The hotel driver (Musa) picked us up at the airport (our plane was an hour early!!) and drove us around to the sights that... More

Formerly a great hotel and pleasant place to stay, it seems to be regressing. Standards seem to be dropping in all aspects and the menu especially leaves a lot to be desired. The hotel could do with a freshen up and access to parking is often blocked with delivery vehicles and taxis.

We could only stay one night but wish it was more. We had a huge suite with a terrace, lounge bath and shower, two toilets. The whole place is clean, distinguished, smart, cool and the food and bar were excellent too. Don't go anywhere else in Jo'burg!

My husband and I went on our honeymoon to Africa. This hotel was not only romantic, but also beautiful, classy, clean, with great service! I have nothing bad to say. The location is great and it's easy to get to the mall and the train. We even walked one day to Moho by zoo lake. Safe area. Best part of... More

Excellent boutique hotel in the Rosebank a pleasant suburb of Johannesburg. If you want quiet efficient service in sophisticated gown up hotel, this is the place for you. Staff are attentive without being intrusive, whilst giving a friendly "family" service feel. All of my requests were accommodated without any hesitation and the any niggles were addressed straight away.

Have stayed here many times before and this time round insisted on staying there for the night of my wedding. Everything about the place is faultless - the service, the breakfast, the rooms (all suites). And it's great value too compared to other hotels in the city. Highly recommended.

One could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. Located right at the Rosebank stop on the Gautrain, it was easy to get to from the airport. The service was impeccable and the staff genuinely cared that you enjoyed your stay. The food for breakfast was substantial and we had two dinners at their restaurant. The Rosebank shopping... More
