This is truly a 5 star hotel. The rooms and common areas are certainly luxurious. The staff goes well above and beyond to cater to every need of the customers and provide top flight service with no stone unturned. They are extremely security conscious even though they reside in a safe area of the city. In advance of my stay,... More

From the moment we arrived at the Monarch Hotel we experience nothing but smiles and friendliness from the staff. We found our suite to be an oasis of luxury with a free mini-bar (non-alcoholic). The hotel is positioned in a great location within the Rosebank area providing easy access to the great shopping and dining that can be found in... More

Beautiful suite. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast-quiet and private. The whole experience made us feel special. Good value for money. Rosebank area interesting and trendy. Will be fabulous when the mall's revamp is finished.

The hotel is outstanding in terms of location, furnishings, cleanliness and comfort, BUT what spoiled everything is the attitude - it seems like if you're not dressed in high heels, low-back dress, diamonds with Lui Vuitton bag in your hands, you will not be treated with respect in this hotel. We just came back from safari and high heels or... More

So what do you do when the iconic old Post Office in Johannesburg's upmarket suburb of Rosebank isn't needed any more? You turn it into a five-star hotel, create enormous, well-furnished luxury suites around a beautiful courtyard, staff it with cheery helpful people, provide excellent breakfasts in a sunny, well-appointed dining room, and deliver faultless service to your guests. And... More

This is a beautiful hotel. Our initial room was not appropriate for our needs so we were moved immediately to a far grander room at no extra charge. Staff were very gentle and understanding. We did notice the plumbing was faulty in our grand room but otherwise, we felt like princesses - the amount of space and the sense of... More

The Monarch hotel is the perfect destination for the first time visitor to Johannesburg. Mr. Jan, the hotel and staff are welcoming and give you the added assurance that you are safe under their hospitality. "Mosa" received us at the airport and had the perfect smile to welcome us to S. Africa. She also provided us with a one day... More

In all respects, the Monarch Hotel is an excellent example of what makes a boutique hotel great. Personalized attention; beautiful, large rooms; a great atmosphere that sets it worlds apart from nearby large, institutional hotels. The only (small) shortcomings are forgivable: no electrical outlet in the bathroom and no pool or gym on premises. (Apparently, there is an agreement with... More

My husband and I stayed at the Monarch on our wedding night. The staff were extremely accomodating to our every need. I checked in early and got ready for my wedding in the room, I also had bride photos and bridesmaids photos in the hotel grounds. It was all very beautiful, and the staff were so so friendly, helpful and... More

The Monarch is just beautiful! We spent one night here during a stopover in Johannesburg and are so glad we did. It wasn't too far from the city center, where we were with our tour guide, and an easy cap to another cute neighborhood where we went for dinner. All of the staff members we interacted with were quite friendly,... More
