I have stayed in many hotels but the Davinci really beats the lot. The service, the rooms but most important - the people served us with all their hearts. Breakfast was tasty and the choices great. It was in a great area with access to everything. I will definitely stay again.

A group of 14 stayed at this hotel on holiday. The security was minimal as the air lock doors between the hotel elevators and the rooms worked intermittently on both floors that we were assigned. The concept of a curtain instead of a wall for the bathroom was not appreciated, as the light would wake up a sleeping companion if... More

I do a fair amount of traveling and think this is the most wonderful hotel I have stayed in. My friend and I were doing a 13 day tour of South Africa and went two days early to enjoy this area and this hotel as I had read the good reviews. Well, the hotel did not disappoint one bit. The... More

I really loved this hotel. The rooms are great and so is the service. There is a pool and gym which I both didn't use. Same for the breakfast. Everything is very new (opened in 2010) and the Mandela Square is around the corner. Also very secure with access control on the floor and a two step elevator to get... More

Without a doubt, the DaVinci is the best Hotel in Joburg in my opinion. From the moment you meet the Concierge and his men, you realise this is something special; from the GM down, all you get is honest, sincere and respectful (without being obsequious) interaction. It is a modern, clean and well-appointed hotel in a great location. The food... More

Our room was very comfortable and stylish. It was very modern. You can't beat the location. It is located in the Nelson Mandela Mall with access to restaurants and shopping. I would definitely stay here again.

A truly great hotel for any Johannesburg stop over. Close to all the Sandton action, the G-Train and much more. The massages at the spa are great, the breakfast is extensive with expresso coffee included without surcharge. Loads of great restaurants nearby, my pick is 'The Butchers Shop' in Mandella Square if you're a carnivore.
