I stayed in this hotel, room 420 from March 25-April 1,2014 (vacation), first time to Africa.I must say that I enjoyed my stay. The hotel and it's surroundings are very clean and comfortable. I walked to Nelson Mandela's square everyday by choice, because of it's close proximity to this hotel, and it's safety to walk. The staff was very friendly... More

Arrived early at the hotel for a two night stay. Had to wait for a room to become available. When a room did become available, I went up to the assigned room only to find that it was already occupied.

Now over to the painpoints: - the room didn't have any WiFi connectivity at all. Even the network cable wasn't working. Upon calling Swisscom (wayport), promises were made to have it fixed,... More

I have stayed at the Radisson Blu Gautrain on more than one occasion. I have always enjoyed my stay at this fine hotel. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food is great. As a woman travelling on her own in Africa, I feel completely at ease and relaxed. I am looking forward to returning this week.
