The rooms are not clean at all and theres nothing you want more than a comfortable bed and a clean room. There was dust all over and I noticed the cleaning staff did little... More

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! The hotel is centrally located within walking distance of the Gautrain and Pretoria station. They offer free, secure parking for hotel visitors, across the road... More

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. I upgraded to a executive suite and had all the space in the world. Staff are friendly , location is great & the free services does help the budget , would stay again... More

The Manhattan Hotel is such a stunning hotel in Pretoria. The hotel promises their guests five star service even though they are only a three star hotel, even though the hotel also looks like a five star hotel. The beautiful decor and atmosphere is so unexpected as my expectations of a three star hotel was completely exceeded and more. The... More

I stayed here because of it's location to Pretoria Train Station as I had to be awake early since I was catching the Blue Train early Monday morning. I was exceptionally disappointed with the hotel. From the moment I walked in until the moment I signed out, I felt like I was being ignored or treated like a second-rate guest...and... More

The Manhattan Hotel Pretoria is as close to the CBD of Pretoria as you can get without being in the cold heart of the business district itself. The proximity of the hotel to the Gautrain Station is a huge plus factor and without mentioning that they also have a shuttle service from the station will be an injustice. Do not... More

This hotel is great! If you don't mind the following: - Old windows that seemingly amplify street noise to an unbearable level - Music played loudly in the hallways starting around 05:45. Yes, 05:45 in the morning. No reason to be up that early? Better hope there's not a speaker outside your door! - Proximity to the train station... And... More
