Good stay if you need to be in a great position to get around and are going to be out the hotel a lot. Don't need any cars as hotel right outside the Gautrain station and right next to a great Mall for any meals, any other needs. The furniture is dated and seems old and bit dull but the... More

My mother and I flew up from Cape Town for a 60th and stayed at the Monarch for one night. The staff even came to fetch us at the Gautrain station to carry our suitcases! It was incredible. The décor is beautiful. The staff were SO welcoming. The room was home from home. Their chauffeur drove us to and from... More

This hotel is beautiful and is run by awesome, kind people. We arrived early and they checked us in without problem. Then we accidentally slept past checkout (jet lag) and they were so nice about it. Didn't charge us and were very understanding. What you get for the money as far as quality goes is unbelievable. The rooms was clean,... More

The Monarch Hotel was a great place to stay and the rooms, service and food offerings were of a high standard. However, we felt very badly let down upon our departure for the airport. We advised the hotel that we needed a transfer, which they arranged. However, the transfer company did not have a large enough vehicle for our two... More

Dear Mr Phil Thank you for the compliments and constructive criticism. I personally did a thorough investigation on your transfers. The Monarch uses an outsourced company for transfers and my team told me the transfer company had to get a second car in to transport your luggage. I am not sure why no one explained the additional charges that you... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in January 2016 and thought the hotel and staff there were both fantastic. The room we had was huge with separate lounge and great bathroom - with a bath and shower. The staff were so helpful they made the experience really good and cannot recommend highly enough. There isn’t a huge amount in the... More

This hotel never disappoints. Our last stay was 6 nights. Luxury accomodation, amazingly comfy beds, outstanding service from every staff member, no request too small. Fabulous breakfast, homemade pastries are scrumptious! Always stay at the Monarch every time we come to Johannesburg. A little gem.
