We stayed in the Monarch for too short of a trip but will be back. The staff, restaurant and the ROOM was perfect. Beautifully restored and luxury at it's best. Close to great restaurants in the Firs 2 blocks away, recommended by concierge Bronwyn. Thanks for a great experience.

The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and constantly trying to improve our stay. The rooms were very clean, with a nice and comfortable bed and fine linen. The bathroom is clean, big and the shower were a big favorite with me.

Amazing closing to an amazing trip to South Africa. Everything I read in trip advisor reviews was justified. Jan welcomed us personally and made sure our stay was comfortable and relaxed. The rest of the staff all went that extra step as well. The hotel itself is the best I have ever stayed in - old world luxury.

This is a lovely hotel, interestingly small but beatifully formed. It is an oasis in Rosebank, within walking distance of the efficint Gautrain. The staff are friendly and helpful, thr estaurant provides great food. Handy local shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

We stayed for one night and enjoyed it very much. This was the perfect hotel: the area, the house, the interior tasteful in this luxurious and 'royal' style, the art on the walls, the service and attention to guest and detail - exactly what you don't get at any of the stereotype huge hotel chains. We will be back!
