I had never heard of the The Capital Hotel before my stay there and boy was this a pleasent surprise. The hotel is very well situated based in the centre of Santon and just up the road from Santon Square. The rooms are visibly appealing and modern and most importantly they are spotlessly clean and comfortable Staff are all friendly... More

Rooms are fine (but noisy), staff is very pleasant (maybe asking a little too often if everything is ok...) and the location is great: walking distance from the shopping mall and very safe. But I have to say that the food is very disappointing. Breakfast is the same every single day: sausage and bacon are always overcooked, sorry I should... More

A group of 6 were attending a conference at the Sandton Convention Centre. This property was perfectly located, with a 4 min drive to the convention centre and within walking distance to Sandton City. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment and it felt like home! Everything was perfect, including excellent service from the staff. Highly recommended.

Spacious and comfortable accommodation in a superb area of Sandton. The establishment is well run and spotlessly clean. All the staff from the front desk, security and cleaning were friendly and welcoming.
