We stayed here for two nights at the end of September. This very lovely hotel is in the safe business area of Sandton and is actually attached to an upscale mall which in turn is attached to Mandela Square. I had worried about safety, but this is a very safe area with lots of security at all times. We ate... More

I'm lucky enough to stay in many excellent hotels around the world but this is my favourite - and it's the staff who make the difference. i stayed there on four occassions over a six week period recently. The hotel looks terrrific with an ultra-mod black and white theme and is superbly placed next to Mandela Sq in Sandton. Maximilliens... More

My husband and I both enjoyed the hotel but it was a little annoying having to change elevators to get to our floor. The hotel staff was good but nothing outstanding. The room was kept very clean by the housekeeping staff.

This hotel was a bit overwhelming for us. It is beautiful but lacks the charm of a smaller boutique hotel that I would normally choose. We were transitioning from a Lodge in the North to the Kapama Lodges near Kruger and had to spend one night in Joburg. I found the hotel a bit confusing with the reception not on... More

My regular hotel in Sandton was full and I ended up here. I arrived late into the hotel and walked into the lobby area, I must admit the lobby with all the noise, mirrors and flashy bits was not for me and I was a little concerned about the hotel I had chosen. The check-in was a little slow as... More

Friendly staff, excellent facilities, great meals! I stayed at the hotel on business during September 2014, and the staff was friendly and efficient, especially when i needed some documents photocopied and scanned urgently. My room was clean, well stocked, and the hotel is a 4 minute walk from Nelson Mandela square, so there were a lot of options for dinner.

Came to this hotel after a week in Cape Town and were delightfully surprised. The check-in process was swift and cheerful, overall service was fast and accommodating, the area is nice and very close to the Nelson Mandela Square (3 minutes walk) in a relatively safe area.

We only stayed 1 night here before we went on safari. Very friendly staff, great location, within walking distance to Nelson Mandela square (via the mall). Nice restaurant nearby. A fairly safe area to walk around. Breakfast buffet selection was amazing.
