The hotel is beautiful, peaceful and charming. The staffs are super polite and friendly. The breakfast was superb! This place is a real gem for those wishing to stay in the Rosebank area. It's also a 1 minute walk to the Gautrain, so getting to and from the airport is very easy.

This was our first time in Johannesburg and the Monarch proved to be a beautiful choice. I loved the history of the hotel as a former post office turned hotel, and the remodel kept many of the historic features intact. The rooms are exquisite, especially the bathroom with its huge tub! Our stay was lovely as well, though it began... More

The rooms in this hotel are out of the world, large, ornate but still very comfortable! Great service and a great location too. Highly recommend the Monarch for your next stay--you will not be disappointed

Beautiful spacious "colonial style" rooms. A quiet haven next to busy Rosebank mall. Friendly warm service and nice restaurant with a small but interesting selection of nice dishes. The bathrooms are lovely and afford a lot of privacy. I would definitely recommend it

After a very long flight with hardly any sleep, all I wanted to do was check in and relax. Once I arrived at the Monarch Hotel, my energy was lifted and I felt at home. The staff were exceptionally kind and helpful! I cannot say enough about the staff and how warm and welcoming they were. This hotel is also... More

This hotel was not just a place to stay it was an amazing experience of a very high standard. The impeccable personal service, the grand old building, the superior decor, the ambience, the huge room with a bathroom to die for. The location is perfect, outside the exit to the Gautrain and next to a shopping Mall in Rosebank. You... More

Room looked much better than in the pictures. Rooms were very luxurious, only trouble we had was with bathtub shower which didn't work and made terrible noise. And toilet took a long time to refill. Hotel organised our transfer to airport and it was great, very luxurious. It was like on movies

The Monarch is a well-kept secret in Johannesburg. It offers a warm and stately home feel as opposed to a large, chain hotel feel. The staff are attentive, friendly and have a strong service ethic; and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and ours had 2 bathroom which made getting ready in the mornings quick and easy for all. The breakfast... More
