Being a part of the Holiday Inn chain it was a very easy to use hotel in Johannesburg. Very well presented and clean. We didn't have the breakfast here but ate in the restaurant for dinner which was quite good. The bar on the rooftop was fantastic - great for cocktails and amazing views! The shuttle service was difficult however:... More

I really recommend staying in the Sandton area, pretty safe and you are within a walk to the sandton mall and Mandela square, the Holiday Inn is a pretty decent hotel with nice and neat rooms. Gautrain station is a 5-min walk which makes it very convenient especially commuting from/to airport, they do offer shuttle service at the hour to... More

We always stay at this hotel on our monthly trips to Johannesburg. The hotel is located in Sandton, which is the premium area in Johannesburg near to Mandela Square. The rooms are medium sized with all the basic amenities. The Staff is nice.

Was here for a week for a workshop we organized. The hotel amenities were standard, clean and pleasant. However the staff coordinating events weren't responsive to requests, taking days to finalize details and couldn't keep appointments. We arrived a few days earlier to sort out logistics issues but we were stood up twice for a meeting.

The service and staff are great, rooms are pretty nice as well. Location great - just near Sandton mall (walkable) and Gautrain station. Food area is slightly limited, but a number of restaurants/bars are in the immediate area.
