Clean, spacious, pleasant self-catering suites, on quiet,well-kept grounds. Sandton Gautrain station, which allows quick and easy access to OR Tambo Airport and elsewhere is about a 20 min walk; if you have much luggage you will need to take a local taxi (R50) though, and check the schedule -- it stops running around 9 pm. There's also a nice park... More

Firstly when my family and I arrived at this hotel the first impression was really bad. Walking into that room it smelt like no one had stayed in there for years. Having travelled for 26+ hours all I wanted was to have a shower. The floor was so mouldy it made me feel sick I had to wear slippers in... More

Stayed here four nights in December with friends. Here is why I would recommend the Glenalmond Hotel : 1.The location is excellent. It takes about 15 mins to get to the Sandton Gautrain station and Nelson Mandela Square Mall on foot. Inspite of its proximity to downtown Sandton, the location is very quiet,safe and peaceful. 2.The rooms are furnished apartment... More

Thank you for your valuable feedback. We have since rectified the glitch in the system. I suspect you would have arrived at a time just after we had Internet issues that made it difficult to see the updated rates. That said, it is usually advised that when a guest has made an online booking they arrive with their voucher or... More

The price-value-ratio cannot be beaten, you don't get simply a room, but a completely furnished apartment including a kitchen, living room, sleeping room, bathroom and another separate toilet. It is a very nice and quiet place, and the staff is doing everything to make you feel comfortable, a special thanks here goes to Frank, the receptionist. The location is excellent,... More

My husband and I spend two nights at Glenalmond earlier this month and found the hotel to be in a safe neighborhood and within walking distance to everything we could have asked for while in Sandton.

Glenalmond Hotel are nice apartments in the amazing city- Johannesburg. They are clean, modern, well equipped, spacious and great value. It is a 5 minute drive to a supermarket and a roughly 30 minute to Johannesburg airport. The staff in reception are friendly which makes the stay enjoyable!

The hotel had a spacious and well equipped apartment with covered parking in front of the apartment. The location has good security. Breakfast was very good - huge portions. There is a small pool but it was too cold to be used on my visit.

This hotel is like a motel complex just outside the Sandton commercial area. The apartments are spacious although they only have small heaters so it will get cold in winter. Sandton City is close enough that you can walk but far enough that we only did it once. They do have an in house taxi service you can use which... More
