Thanks to Rui Jorge (owner of the apartment) for the awesome customer service in renting out his penthouse to us. I was a bit of a difficult customer changing dates and number of guests and once nearly cancelled the stay, but Rui remained calm and professional all the time (I'm sure he swore a few times once I hung up)....

Just spent 2 weeks in the Nicol, and frankly its spectacularly underwhelming. For a business hotel the facilities and attention to detail really let it down. The only free wifi is in the lobby, paid wifi is expensive (£6 per night) and unreliable depending where you are. I mean come on, who charges for wifi any more?!! Breakfast starts at... More

The Hotel is in walking distance to convenient stores and a variety of restaurants. Eastgate is also 5 mins away. Ideal for Travellers with a busy schedule. The Hotel was clean despite towels not being changed regularly. Hotel has a mix of studio and apartment rooms and ideal for own cooking. Restaurant not that great and a breakfast pack is... More

I booked a studio room. It was terrible. The bed was lumpy, the sheets were grubby, the duvet cover had stains on it. There was no hairdryer, no bin in the bathroom, the TV wasn't clear and generally the place was grubby. It was a room that was linked to a bigger room / apartment, and there were no outside... More

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is clean. My family of 6 had the 3 bedroom self catering suit. It was perfect. Came with everything that we needed. Hotel is perfectly located. Straight down from the airport, across the road from an awesome spar. Everything that you need is around the corner. We will be coming back.

I was promised a studio and ended up with a small hotel room - the only window was leading into the passage - and got disturbed by every person walking past with their wheely bags. Having paid a fairly high price, compared to other options in the area - I was not very impressed. The breakfast box was a nice... More

We stayed at The Nicol on and off for three monts in a two bed apartment filled with all basic amenities. Perfectly safe and conveniently situated close to many shops and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommend to other guests who need a place to stay in Jozi. Staff extremely friendly and helpful and undercover parking.

My 5 year old daughter and I rented a Nicol apartment for 3 days. It was her first visit to Johannesburg and I found the hotel to be perfectly located in terms of using it as a base to visit various places throughout the city. The self catering unit was tastefully furnished with a modern electric hob, dishwasher, micro wave... More

Though it is new hotel but I didn't like it as the rooms were very small they were clean still the floor have such tiles that as soon as you step in they will get dirty especially the bathroom tiles. I think there should be carpet or wooden floors in the room. We booked this hotel for 5 days but... More
