“Could be Better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

I made the reservation utilising the Internet. Upon arrival I was told that I had not paid, despite completing this process via the Hotels website. I required a place of safety to store my Notebook and iPad, the Receptionist informed me that a safe was available in my room. When I enterd the room I placed the devices and other valuables in the safe provided and attemted to set the electronic lock - unfortunately the battery power which enables the lock had run flat. I contacted Reception to rectify the problem, I was however informed that this was not possible. They could move me to another room or I could store my valuables within the Reception Safe-deposit area. I real and frustrating inconvenience. Breakfast was totally over priced.

Its a very good bed and breakfast, idealy located for people travelling for work, not really for the tourists. It does not have room service but you can order delivery from various restaurants in Jo'burg or just in front of the hotel you have one of the cities largest malls so you could dine there. The rooms are average, again they are good for business travellers not really too many frills. Each unit has a small kitchen. Service as some of the earlier comments state varies a lot. The breakfasts are really good, wish they did dinners too. Its in a quieter part of town and a good 20-30 minutes from some of the sites.

The Mercure Hotel in Midrand is ideally situated for anybody needing to go to Gallaghar Estate. It's just a short drive (some even walked) from the hotel to the conference and exhibition centre. I wouldn't recommend it to tourists though as its far away from the tourists sites and in the middle of a business area. Was very impressed when I saw that the hotel contributes to the planting of a tree if you re-use your towls for 3 days by hanging it up. Big was my disappointment when I found that even if you hang up your towls, they still replace them. Duh?!?!? What's the use? Another problem is that they have no swimming pool.

A good hotel with decent breakfasts. Had a great view. But service was a bit spotty. Depended on who was working at the front desk. Rooms are average to small (at least the one we had). More of a business hotel than a tourism one. Efficiency seems to be top priority.

The hotel is located in Midrand, a modern small city with a central business district located between Jo'burg and Pretoria. It is located in a safe area with some shops around (petrol station opposite, Pizza Express, Restaurants etc.). The staff was very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. As we booked a very special online rate we did not expect so much. But the rooms were clean, adequate, a lot of TV channels, the bathroom was also very clean. We had no opportunity to test the breakfeast. However, the staff was very heldfull all the time, they did phone calls for us, reserved other hotels of the Accor Group etc. Overall, it is a good hotel with a excellent price rate in a safe area. They have also own (safe) parking facilities.

1. Is in the middle of no where, taxis prices in the hotel are double or triple, when if you keepa number from another taxi is so much cheaper and nicer service.

2. The receptionist people are soo not happy to help you, they try to do what you ask but they put long faces, the service is not tipppicak for the Mercure hotels.

3. We arrived late and in the final of the world cup, they put us in this disable room with no working heater, so it was sooo cold, the next day we ask to be mooved and again long faces but we got another room with heater "working" but still cold and with lost of noise because is on the first floor.

4. WE ask non smoking and the pillows smell smoke same as carpet, there is NO ROOM SERVICE, there is nooo restaurants around that are open after 10pm but McDonalds.

In my opinion and experience with MErcure hotels , this one was TERRIBLE,

I don't recommend it at all!! (better to stay in a lodge if all hotels in Jobourg are booked)
