The Radisson Blu (Gautrain) is perfect for business. The rooms are clean and modern, the decor and look of the hotel is very smart. The breakfast is plentiful and fresh. The prices in the bar are quite expensive - but that is what I'd expect in a Sandton business hotel.

I travel significantly for business worldwide. I have just completed a 1 month stay in this hotel and I only have good things to say. Overall it ticks every box to be 10 out of 10. Quality of Room. Due to the length of stay I selected a Business class room (still very reasonably priced). An excellent spacious room: Separate... More

Stayed for a single night. Can't speak much for the hotel but definitely a comfortable stay. With swanky modern interiors, the hotel is pretty close to Sandton shopping center. They also provide free pick ups and drop offs to the Nelson Mandela square where you can have a wide variety of restaurants to choose from and a great shopping experience.The... More

We chose a night in the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel after a disaster end to our week long vacation in Sun City. We spent a week in Sun City and decided that on route back to Johannesburg, that we would stay at a lodge in Haartbeespoort Dam. We arrived quite late and the place was SO dirty and run down,...

I had a great stay. The service was top notch. The room was very nice. The restaurant was excellent, though sadly quiet for the gourmet quality and value priced offerings. Get the prix fixe option if offered. When traveling from the airport be sure to take the Gautrain, which is much cheaper than a cab and extremely efficient.

Gracious, attentive and well-intentioned staff of very limited capabilities. Check-in could not confirm my pre-paid reservation status (despite my emailing all documents to the hotel in advance); wifi did not work; had 3 different rooms (maintenance issues), and nobody could tell me how to make an outgoing, local, telephone call from my room, Yet, everybody at the hotel attempted, albeit...

This is a good business hotel with a good location for Gautrain. The rooms are what one would expect - though a double rather than the twin beds in my room would have been preferred. Breakfast is great as is the Restaurant menu. Service is friendly and efficient. The pool is very small and on a deck overlooking a busy... More
