One could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. Located right at the Rosebank stop on the Gautrain, it was easy to get to from the airport. The service was impeccable and the staff genuinely cared that you enjoyed your stay. The food for breakfast was substantial and we had two dinners at their restaurant. The Rosebank shopping... More

The hotel was perfect for my short stay in Johannesburg - I found the staff friendly and accommodating of my needs. The rooms are large and comfortable, which was great for my business trip - good internet and a comfortable bed

We did safaris for 2 weeks. Although we stayed in very nice camps, we were happy to be in a luxurious hotel like the Monarch. It was comparable to the RItz in S.F. California. Actually, I thought the Monarch was better.

The Monarch is luxurious and the staff attentive and well trained. We found the air conditioning to be difficult to set, and they forgot to replace the milk in the fridge, but these are minor annoyances....i would give the hotel four and a half stars. The rooms are spacious and high ceilinged, and the bathrooms are lovely.

This hotel is well situated, close to Gautrain station and shopping centres. Beautiful suites, excellent staff and excellent board room / meeting facilities. It has 12 rooms, from a large double suite (beautiful and luxurious) to the President's suite which is magnificent.

Overall it was a good choice for a stopover after two overnighters prior to continuing on safari. We were picked up as arranged and when we got to the Monarch were impressed with how absolutely lovely it is. One of the pleasant staff accompanied us to the mall next door pointing the shops. The only reason I do not give... More

A charming little jewel of an historic hotel with several places to sit and enjoy its ambience after a long flight or busy day out. From the friendly driver who collected me at the airport and throughout my stay, every individual staff member was genuinely helpful, professional and interested in my wellbeing. The GM wrote a lovely welcome card and... More
