We booked this hotel as it was close to the High Court and it was important not to be late due to traffice. The room looked great but as night fell, hell began - the noise from the bus stop/fuel station booming music was unbelievable and road traffic roaring. Didn't get one wink of sleep, adding to the stress of... More

This hotel is an experience in itself. As mentioned in other reviews they work by the motto "Redefining the art of hospitality"…and in certain ways they do. The hotel is old and through some creative painting here and there they make it look much better then it is. My room was small and basic, and yet fulfilled all requirements I... More

I stayed at the Manhattan during a three day conference. As a conference venue it was mediocre: the food was quite good but the sound system didn't work properly on any of the days. The room was large and clean. The hotel is on a very busy road and the windows don't seal well. Worse still, there was piped music... More

A very puzzling stay at the Manhattan Hotel. The motto is "redefining the art of hospitality," something that I think the staff can't quite keep up with. On check-in, the staff couldn't determine if I had paid and the poor clerk was worried that she would have to pay out of her own salary if she made a mistake. Second,... More

All staff at this hotel have treated me like a queen. They will try and keep you as happy as possible. My room was spotless clean every day. The food is 6 star quality!!!

We arranged a 2-day conference at the Manhattan Hotel and I was sceptical of the choice. After two days of conferencing, I can confirm that I was not only impressed, but will highly recommend it!

Ideal location for business or when passing through Pretoria to places distant: not far off the N1 and right near the station for the Gautrain. Lovely decor, rooms with everything one requires. Nice pub (with very well ventilated smoking area) with drinks at reasonable prices and lots of lounge seating outside. Buffet dinner varied and ample, spacious and attractive dining... More

The hotel has amazing decor however you do feel like you in a prison if you stay in a standard room. The standard rooms are very small.
