Best breakfasts of any hotel ever. Cater for those who want to be healthy, like cranberries, nuts, awesome fruits etc ( there are the waffles, fried eggs and pancakes too) Awesome touches like reception and dining room on 13th floor. Brilliant wifi (free and fast). Top class hotel in a great area. Rooms have scenic views over JHB. Only negative:... More

Although this wouldn't be the hotel I'd pick if I were on holiday as it is full of business people, it is great if you are in Joburg for work. You can easily and safely walk to Madela Square during the day. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The food is also quite good.

I moved there after an awful night in Garden Court Milpark. So.. I was just astonished, how non-comparable are both of them, even if there was almost no difference in price. It’s clean, SAFE, and nice hotel relatively close to Sandton mall (unfortunately without direct access). Room was quiet and clean, breakfast very good, coffee excellent. And smiley and helpful...

Decent hotel....clean rooms...and great food (the pork ribs are ab-fab) service is a tad bit slow (the housekeeping took 2 hours and 5 calls to bring the iron and iron board) and the guys at events on the 12th floor are downright awful.... unhelpful and just could not be bothered..... maybe they are (like most banquet staff) casual labours or...

There are two Radisson Blu hotels within about 400m of one another outside the Gautrain station at Sandton. This one, a little further away, is in a mixed use building that has some benefits (3 level gym and full size swimming pool) but can be a little tiresome to access using two sets of elevators to get from the ground...

I stayed here for 3 nights on business and returned for 1 night for pleasure. Generally the service was good but by no means outstanding. The most disappointing things for me were: (1) only one restaurant with limited food choice; (2) rooms have not been well maintained - some electrical sockets not working, showers did not drain quickly, showers had...

The hotel itself is ok; nothing special but it's clean and simple. - The food is mostly bland, and when it's not bland, it seems they attempt to make up for the lack of flavour by pouring kilos of salt into everything. I'm concerned for my health after leaving. - There was also an issue on the day I arrived... More
