Having looked at all the previous reviews I am a bit surprised at some of the comments. While the outdoor pool service in terms of choice of food is poor, everything else is spot on. The staff were always friendly, the room was spacious and spotless, and was always stocked with the usual amenities. The food was very good, and... More

The hotel is wonderful and very well situated in Sandton. Somewhat confusing as there are 2 Radisson Blu hotels within a short distance of each other so it took some advanced preparation to make sure we got to the right one. The automated elevators are amazing and the rooms very sumptuous. My one gripe is the limited menu available in... More

Got a room on 16th floor (please note that the reception, bar and restaurant are on the 13th floor). The room overlooks a quadrangle which houses the bar. The noise from the atrium carries and the rooms are not sound proof. It is quite shocking when you are asleep and suddenly you hear your door opening, only to realize that... More

Stayed here in early December 2013 while on a business trip. It was my first trip to Joburg and it will be my last stay at this particular hotel. Was there for a total of 6 nights but paid for 7 as I arrived early Monday morning and wanted a room guaranteed for freshening up before heading out for meetings.... More

I came here on a business trip with a colleague and we had drastically different experiences. First, we ordered a car to pick us up from the airport. the guy was a Radisson employee and we booked the car at the same time we booked the hotel rooms, but he still managed to take us to the wrong hotel (there...

The lobby to this hotel in THE embodiment of "looks can be deceiving". You enter through a hole in the wall and through a parking lot. Then you arrive at a small, confined, gloomy and dark lobby. You think "I've had it here". And then the rooms. They are FABULOUS! spacey, full of light, clean and super comfortable. Ask for... More

Not really sure what people are looking for in a hotel but we were very happy all round. Like any property drains will get blocked or little things will go wrong from time to time.

Pros. Nice clean hotel, lovely soft beds and great linen. OK shower pressure and great view. Close to Gautrain. Ultra-safe area. Free shuttle to local areas. Cons. Cool welcome, zero eye contact and no smiles before, during or after check in. No help with baggage despite us struggling in front of concierge. Lift procedure just crazy. Impossible to escape without... More

Good business hotel, rooms clean and comfortable, restaurant serves a good steak. Dead easy to get to from Tambo airport - 20 mins on the Gautrain - and only five minutes' walk to Nelson Mandela Square. Will stay again.
