Absolutely perfect! The room was big, clean, luxurious, elegant, comfortable, tasteful, and beautifully decorated. The hotel itself is like an antique home, perfectly preserved and maintained. The restaurant has a 5-start quality, and the overall service is impeccable. The breakfast was delicious too. They will make you pretty much what ever you want, and you can also munch on the...

Just returned back home after spending three days at the Monarch. The place is designed more like a lavish home than a hotel, which was good. Located right next to the Gautrain which is so convenient and comfortable and drops you right at the airport. Its also next to the Rosebank Mall so all the amenities you'll ever need are... More

The monarch is just a delight. It is tucked away in the middle of a city block and does not look like the oasis that it really is. We entered at the rear of the hotel and were shocked to find a secluded, quiet garden. It's elegant and inviting. The rooms are equally as elegant and nice. The hotel is... More

This fine hotel is highly recommended and is a wonderful place for resting during one's travels. For me, it was the perfect location to "recharge my batteries" in the middle of a 3-month-long trip. The accommodations are wonderful--I believe all rooms are actually large suites--and the atmosphere is serene and quiet. The restaurant serves first-rate food and the waiters are... More

Great price/quality - super great position. The staff was very kind and professional. I really enjoyed the beauty of the hotel in the whole. It is furnished old-style very high quality. Loved the quiet cute garden where I relaxed and worked. I would return without any doubt.

The Monarch is truly a wonderful experience... pleasant service, convenient location and well appointed and spacious rooms with terrace, wifi, movies, etc! Only regret was not being able to stay longer.

location for this hotel is perfect, 100 meters to Gautrain and 200 meter to Rosebank mall which is the best of the ones in Johannesburg. The entrance is a bit odd and what's around the hotel does not really fit But inside you will find and old British style hotel. The rooms and the general state of the Hotel are... More

The Driver was at the airport to collect us even when our flight arrived much later than it should have, we were whisked off to a great hotel who were welcoming and ready for us with a smile, a great room with a great bath and an early morning wake up 430am to ensure we made our flight onwards the...

We stayed here for one night. PROS - Really nice room. Very spacious with superb furnitures (5 star) and amenities. - The refrigerator had few soft drinks and water available (included). Just wow! - Unlimited internet (not typical in JNB. We also stayed in Holiday Inn in the same neighborhood. They had a limit) - Hot breakfast was included. We... More
