The hotel is perfectly situated for easy access to local stores and surrounding areas. The hotel staff are fantastic. The rooms are spacious and neat. The bathrooms are great. Having the shopping center accessible from inside the hotel, is a huge bonus. We looked out over Mandela Square from our room and it was entertaining when there were performers in... More

I have stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. The hotel is less than 5min-walk from Gautrain station Sandton which only takes about 15mins to get here from the airport. Both the hotel and staff were very nice, I had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs and was very happy with a wide range of breakfast options. The bar... More

At first they put us in a room that was small and overlooking the taxi rank but we complained and then they moved us to a lovely room overlooking the square. the wonderful... More

I was lucky enough to stay here, as my partner was on business. Staff are all extremely friendly, well presented and helpful.

The location in Johannesburg could not be better , overlooking Nelson Mandela Square whilst having breakfast was ideal . Being on top of the best shopping mall in town was a nice plus as well and a dozen good restaurants were within a couple of minutes walk . The rooms were spacious enough but the furnishings looked a little tired... More

This hotel is undoubtedly one of the best in Johannesburg and a favourite of mine. With sincere respect to management please don't leave it too long before a plan is executed for room refurbishments. They are beginning to look a little tired and it would be a shame to let them deteriorate further. Otherwise, a lovely hotel to stay in.
