The location was actually extremely good for Johannesburg, at the middle of business center, near all highways, close to a bunch of big hotels and banks. Also in a walking distance of Nelson Mandela Square. The hotel covers all the expected standards compare to category and pricing. Rooms are of basic size and comfort with the exception of the corner... More

I was at the Holiday Inn Sandton on June 2014. The location was close to the Gauteng Train - Sandton Station. Additionally, there were hourly shuttles to Nelson Mandela Square and other places nearby the hotel. My room was very nice and it was a good size. The rooftop bar and view was great.

Stayed in this hotel in May 2014; as a repeat customer of this hotel, this time I found it highly uncomfortable to stay. Irritating wifi (needed to log-in every half an hour or every time you get out & return to hotel), stale breakfast (every single day same spread), noisy surrounding (construction!) are some of the reasons. The management seemed... More

The hotel is reasonably priced compared to those around sandton square. The rooms a fresh but the hallways are a little tired. I was in a room near the lifts. The bell is loud and you can hear the lift opening at other floors. The internet is free but flakey. It works about 80% of the time. That seems to... More

Stayed in Holiday the last week. Must appreciate the prompt service and 'happy to help' attitude right from the front desk to room service.
