My wife and I booked for four days. Checked- in on Saturday 16 Aug. and was met with very efficient and friendly staff. The staff found out that it was my wife's birthday and they've gave us an extra special room. Special thanks to Gugu. Everything was nice, neat and comfortable. All services including the shuttle service was good, with... More

I stayed at this Hilton only briefly (2 nights) and it was suitable for my purposes. The rooms were clearly newly renovated which was great given the Hilton's have been rather dated accommodation wise for quite some time. Clean, nice bath tub, slippers and the usual comforts. The bed was large and comfy though I would recommend a pillow menu... More

even if the suite was quite ok (new & renovated)... service is VERY poor, check in was a nightmare (40 minutes), breakfast is a cantine, they scam you when you ask for a taxi (they send you a "friend" private and expensive car). Not really a hilton as it has to be in 2014... looks more like a 1980 cheesy... More

Very central hotel in Sandton, Decor is very dated. Shades in the bedroom barely hanging on their lamp bases. Cigarette burns and dirty marks on carpets. Burn holes in bed frills and stains on the occasional table under the glass. Even though my husband and I were booked into the room, only one bath robe was supplied, this was torn... More

My night at the Hilton Hotel Sandton was extremely exciting and well worth the experience. The hospitality and service was impeccable. I would stay there again at anytime and would most definitely recommend others to stay there. I have already been telling my family and friends about it.

Excellent location. Close to Mandela Square and in the middle of the business district. It has an easy access to the Train station with their regular shuttle service. Rooms were clean, neat & tidy. Staff were courteous. Breakfast was an excellent spread. Though I've stayed at various Hilton properties across the globe and is one of my favorite chain of... More

I checked-in at Hilton on 25th July 2014. The hotel charged me more than my bill in what they call ''reserving the money'', upon check-out, the amount of 2500 rand had fully been deducted from my account. The receptionist claimed it was an error and the money will be refunded. To date the management have not replied to my emails... More

As with most Hilton hotels, this was an enjoyable place to stay with easy access to train stop via their shuttle. Received an upgrade to a beautiful suite. They were very accommodating! Safe area of the city for travelers too.
