I recently spend one night at the Manhattan Hotel in Pretoria. Will I stay there again? Not if I have a choice. The inside of the hotel is quite impressive. Very nice reception and the food in the restaurant was very good. The room is small, but good for overnight. There is a safe as well as kettle. The bathroom... More

The hotel has been around for years, but has now been refurbished. Bathrooms are still old though. The entrance hall is very welcoming, the rooms are a bit dark. The parking is in a fenced area next to the hotel and it takes time to get your car out. Wireless is weak. The rates are very affordable, but in general... More

Dear Val B, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review. The kind words are much appreciated! We are a city hotel and street noise is unfortunately part of our "charm" & location.

This is not a good hotel to stay in especially if you are on your own in Pretoria. My initial impression was good as the lobby is quite nice, but as I was looking around there was no security and no gate cutting off the hotel from the street which in my opinion looked quite dodgy. The only reason I... More

My short stay at Manhattan was pleasant and relaxing. With all the comforts of a 5 star hotel; gym; spa; buffet meals and pristine rooms, I felt like a princess. If you are ever in Pretoria, South Africa - give them a try.

We enjoyed the food. There lots of it. The buffet had a good variety to choose from. And the dining room is fantastic. The white colour lights up the room and create appositive mood. The live band playing tops it all. However they need to further adjust the ventilation in the dining room so that all the smells from the... More
