“Comfortable and Stylish Place to Stay in JoBurg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We decided to stay at Montecasino during our visit to Johannesburg rather than close to the city, and it was a good choice. The Southern Sun was very comfortable, and the breakfast buffet at Punchinello's was large and varied. The retail/restaurant/casino is a couple of minutes' walk.

excellent service, particularly in the restaurant and for breakfast. Food and Beverage Manager very obliging. Housekeeping and cleaning of rooms daily needs some attention. Staff friendly and accomodating. Thandi in Lounge, Eric and others at breakfast.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

This was our 4th stay at this hotel. The food is excellent, the pool area is very relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle, and the location of the hotel is great. Housekeeping and maintenance however leave a lot to be desired, and the niggling itrritations (previously experienced as well) of not being able to get management to attend to problem areas lets the hotel down. On this last visit the 'non-smoking' room reeked of smoke, eventually leading to us changing rooms to a tatty room with wallpaper peeling off the walls and several maintenace/housekeeping problems. Certainly, the experience was below par for Tsogo Sun hotels, especially considering the price of this hotel. The food however was superb, and the catering food and beverage manager was extremely attentive.

Well positioned for business - easy access to Sandton and highway for other destinations. Very pleasant staff from check in through to restaurant. Proximity to Monte Casino entertainment centre is handy for choice of restaurants - the hotel will also come into consideration for the shows at the weekend. Excellent parking and a good breakfast to start the day- what more could you ask for........maybe porridge for breakfast!!

This was my first trip to Johannesburg and the stay was very positive one at this hotel which is in a good location next to the casino where there is a a host of restaurants in the casino building.

I had thought the staff were all very friendly and service was very good.

The room (340) I was in was quiet and very comfortable. Someone I know said he could hear the duck in the pond quacking the entire night but I did not hear it and I am not a heavy sleeper.

(WiFi) Internet access was reasonably priced with one point to note - it supports only one session at any one time so one cannot have his/her phone logged on and use his/her laptop at the same time.

If you want a hotel close to restaurants, then this hotel is perfect. Their lobby balcony is very cozy and you can relax while taking your coffee. The turnoff for this hotel is their internet access. Although I am their frequent guest members, and they gave me 2 hours free, the connection was not that good. It's a pity though for such a nice hotel. But overall I had a nice stay.

I stayed at the hotel last week as part of a conference and for the second year running have found it to be incredibly comfortable. I really like the layout of the rooms and the attention to detail (free drinks in the fridge). I think the front desk and management are courteous and look after their guests well. Breakfast was also fantastic, such great variety. The only pity is that it was only a one night stay! Thanks again, and more than likely see you next year for the same event (Nedbank)!
