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

A small hotel, very comfortable, with a good service and kind staff. The hotel is well located for shopping (next to Rosebank mall) and is surrounded by good restaurants. There is also a good medical clinic nearby. This is a hotel I recommend to people travelling to JHB for business or pleasure, for few days. This was the second time... More

I stayed with my wife at this colonial style hotel for two days. What struck me most was the friendliness of the staff. They smiled as much as they helped you. There is a nice shopping centre not far from the hotel with nice restaurants. I am looking forward to go to The Monarch the next time we will be... More

Best beds I've ever slept in. Everything else was amazing too including the size of the rooms, luxurious bathrooms, etc. Highly recommend you do yourself the favour of booking into this beautiful, unique sanctuary.

This boutique hotel may not look like much on the outside, but every room is luxurious & stunning with a hint of decadence that comes through in the layout of the rooms & décor. Rooms are more than spacious with everything one may need. Staff were very friendly, general manager went out of his way to make sure we were... More

My very reasonable room rate got me a very large suite with rather baroque decor. Great breakfast included and located next to the Rosebank Mall. Very helpful staff took care of a few minor problems for me.

Not only the room was stunning (high ceilings, luxurious decoration, those super hyper comfortable beds, marble floor in the bathroom, little amazing details, water/drinks and fruits for free in the room, room full of petals..), the staff is amazing, you get free parking, the food is really good, and the location is great!! When I come back to Johannesburg, I'm... More
