I have stayed here so many times on business trips that I've lost count. This is a great hotel, with great service.
The theme of the Fire & Ice Hotels which are part of the Protea Group, is black & white retro, and the rooms are stylishly decorated accordingly.
The hotels is located in the well known Melrose Arch, a safe area to walk and shop, with many restaurants and shops to choose from. It is about 10 minutes drive from Sandton Square.
There are often live music in the restaurant and lounge area on the 1st floor.I have noticed that YUPPIES like hanging out there after work, which gives an awesome vibe to it.
Because of its popularity, room rates are often higher than the 5 star Melrose Arch Hotel further down the road, which falls in the same stall. I often stay there too. If you can find a better deal at the African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel, I would suggest you opt for the latter.
