I just spent eight great nights at this hotel and I am glad I was able to enjoy this trip. The hotel staff was fabulous to me from the time I arrived when the doorman took my bags, check-in and check-out. The large was large and had amenities I find are important when traveling overseas.

A lovely stay for one night after 2 weeks in Africa. We had been travelling all day and received fantastic service - right from being met at the Gautrain station on arrival to the considerate late check out the next day before a long flight home.  Our deluxe room was very comfortable, clean and well furnished with quality linens and amenities....

Nice hotel within interesting building, somewhat dated rooms with overloaded decor. Good location within Sandton City Mall/Offices as well Mandela Square - all with direct access from the hotel. Sandton Gautrain station is a 5 min walk away. BF buffet very good and ample. Car transfer service -eg. airport - outsourced and not always reliable. Would not return.

This hotel decoration was very classic and beautiful. The interior design was very spacious. It is situated in central of Joburg and connected to the shopping malls, where many shops and restaurants are. It was safe to walk around the area by myself.

My husband and I spent one night at the hotel. The check in was fair. I had booked a room with a queen bed but when we got to the room we had twin beds with foam pillows. We asked that the beds be changed and requested down pillows. The change was done quickly. The service at breakfast was bad.... More

Upon departing South Africa, we stayed a night here. As our plane was not to leave until 5p.m. we requested a late checkout, which was allowed. The room is large, the bed comfortable and the bathroom elegant. Rooms here really reflect a Venetion theme, with florid patterns and big colours. Staff are super friendly and helpful and the breakfast was... More

When you get off the plane in Jo'burg after your 15-hour flight from JFK, you are knackered as the Brits would say. So, not knowing what to expect after a long day touring, we were thrilled to check into the Michelangelo at Nelson Mandela Square. Chic, modern, and welcoming, the Michelangelo opens onto the Square, where restaurants and shops abound.... More
