Rooms are large enough and have all you need beside a phone. Compared to some other places in this city , complimentary tv with many channels . Bed is rather small. Very weird place that has no lobby and maybe very strange no main street entrance beside maybe the garage entrance used for all guests and visitors. Not a nice... More

I stayed at the Capital Hydro with my family in the superior two bedroom suite. The unit was spacious, clean and very airy. The apartment block is centrally situated and is easy to access the shopping centers and other amenities in the Sandton Area. The apartment is fully equipped with washing machine and dryer and other kitchen appliances. The staff... More

The apartments are a good size and are fairly well equipped for self catering. There is satellite TV, a bath and shower, towels provided and good furnishings. There are a few nice touches and the apartments are clean. Unfortunately there are a lot of faults too. As we arrived after 6pm the office staff had left and we got the... More

Good size service apartment with everything you need (kitchen, washing machine, dryer, bathtub, shower, balcony, kitchen equipment), the only thing was that the wifi was not free. It is available but you need to pay for it. There is a swimming pool but it is in between two tall buildings. It might be ok during the hot summer months but... More

I recently stayed in a two bedroom apartment with my family. We were visiting with friends, who had booked into a one bedroom apartment. The location was very well suited for us. Close to Sandton City and within easy reach of N1. The staff were very accommodating as our flight from Singapore landed early and they were able to get... More

we were at hydro for three nights, we had a challenge with plumbing in our apartment. this was attended to and we received a complementary night on our next stay. This initiative came from management without our request. Thank you guys and we will see you in our next stay.

Hydro Executive Apartments are great value for money and are conveniently located in Sandton. Convenient to check in and cleaning service is good. I will continue to use them when I require such accommodation.
