This was my second stay at the Radison Blu Gautrain Hotel. I prefer this hotel for a few reasons. #1 it's a 5 min walk from the train station with easy access to Tambo Airport and #2 the close proximity to my office. I was welcomed back by the front desk staff which was nice, even if they don't remember... More

I chose this hotel mainly due to its location and the good reviews, but my stay did not turn out to be as good as I was expecting. It all started when I tried to enter the room I was allocated at check-in, and it turned out that there was a lady staying already in that room and had just... More

When looking for a great location, friendly staff, comfortable rooms and good food, we suggest a stay here. Across the road from the train station and a short walk to Nelson Mandela Square and Sandton City Shopping Mall this hotel had it's bases covered. The staff are really friendly and helpful and particular mention goes to Cherish for her wonderful... More

Total disaster ! I knew that South Africa lacks good service , but nothing in the world could prepare me for this. With an outside temperature of 5 degrees , the window did not seal good. Called maintenance , 3 times , even informed maintenance manager, absolutely no action taken. Tried to have dinner at the hotel restaurant, the waiter... More

I regularly stay in the area around Nelson Mandella Square on business, and this is my favourite hotel - mainly for its proximity to the station and the quality of the food. Whilst it is a bit further from NM Square than the Da Vinci and the Michelangelo, this is outweighed by ease of access to the Gautrain station.

Rooms are a good size, the service is polite and friendly, the restaurant food is surprisingly excellent and the gym is just what you need when travelling on business. If you can't find what you want in the hotel the local shopping and restaurants are just across the road with plenty of choice.

The staff was helpful and very friendly towards us. The breakfast and the location of the restaurant were excellent. The gym is impressive and well equipped. The views as well from the gym and restaurant are excellent.

When I was flying to Jo'burg I was really sceptic about the great location of the hotel - just in front of the Gautrain station. But it was right - all the way from the airport to the hotel took around 20 min. The overall venue is of the high Radisson standards. Recommended for business travelers.

Rooms were great (clean and spacious). Service and equipment were poor (Some of the staff's English were poor, reception were unfriendly - made me feel like an intruder, ). Coffee machine and wake-up call function on phone were not working. No warning of renovations taking place. When I phoned about the noise, the response was that renovations are taking place.... More

Stayed here for business . The location is about 30min from the airport with good traffic. Next to the Guatrain , there's also the 15min train option to the airport. The hotel is also next to the Nelson Mandela square, a collection of tourist trap restaurants I arrived at 7am and previously requested for early check-in. Was denied but it... More
