There has been a noticeable improvement in the quality of service at this hotel and the staff could not have been more obliging. I still believe that in US $ terms and based on stays at other Hiltons and Shangri-La hotels, the Hilton Sandton is overpriced. The Executive lounge is much improved in terms of food and service. However, something... More

Very nice hotel in a good location. Close to the OR Tambo International Airport of Johanesburg. Good and clean environment. Nice and polite staff. Excellent breakfasts! Very good option for conferences and other meetings.

The entrance is impressive when approaching the stairs. Until you get to the restaurant. The seating area is incredibly disjointed and the table layout could do with a serious face lift. As for the buffet, it is the most shocking I've seen in 5 star hotels. Food looks tired, untidy and of very poor quality. I lost my appetite when... More

Arriving to the hotel after a 9 hours flight, i just wanted to get to my room, relax, have some food and work. Checking in at the reception though proved to be a bit of a challenge (though i was checking in on the HHonors desk). The receptionist told me that there are no restaurants in the hotel, that the...

The staff were very helpful and friendly, however noise in the early morning kept me awake and the mattress was very hard (another reviewer mentioned this and I now see his point). Having stayed at several great boutique hotels and guest houses in the surrounding area, I had very high expectations. The Hilton is more central than any of the... More

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
