“Classy, ever helpful and attentive staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

With these chain hotels, you always look for something different, something special. And there's always a temptation not to like them, to complain that they all look the same. Hyatt, in particular, at the top end does manage to create a certain look and feel. But unlike with some chains, the Hyatt does it so well: it does classy, tasteful and sumptuous.
The Johannesburg Hyatt has huge rooms (and I could see that mine was one of the smaller ones) with acres of carpet, acres of marble, huge TV, huge windows and a bed big enough to graze small horses. Or even medium-sized ones.
The bathrooms are spacious but not on the same scale, with a separate glass shower cabin, although the overall effect was reduced by a remarkably feeble shower head. The water trickled out. Normally in these kinds of hotels the water pressure blasts you into the opposite wall and you have to peel yourself off with a spatula, but this shower was like drizzle.
The public areas were grand, as to be expected, with incredible smiley, helpful, eager staff everywhere. There's a huge gym and a rooftop pool alongside a spa.
The hotel is by the Rosebank Mall, but more importantly it's just 30 seconds walk from the north exit of Rosebank Gautrain station.

The Hyatt Regency Johannnesburg is currently one of my favourite hotels. It is very conveniently located between Sandton and Jo'burg, accessible by Gautrain. The rooms are spacious, modern and well maintained. The Executive Lounge offers a nice food and drinks selection. So do the restaurants in the hotel and the many options just outside.

The location of this hotel is a bit off, in the quiet Rosebank neighbourhood, but you can take that as a plus or minus. It's an pretty nice and spacious property right next to an upscale mall. It's a full featured Hyatt, with a pool and a Regency floor that serves some tasty local food and wine. The regency lounge staff were extremely hospitable as well. Overall a top notch Hyatt hotel with a focus on customer service. You can't go wrong here if you're visiting Joberg.

The hotel is located in direct proximity to a mall with multiple very good restaurants and shops. For T-shirts, socks, food etc there is Woolworths in few minute walking distance. Airport transfer (40 min) may be arranged by e-mail.
Our executive room was very conveniently arranged with flat screen TV, kettle, two suitcase racks, mini-bar, 1 liter complimentary water. The bathroom was nice and big, with huge mirrors, a separate shower and bathtub. The executive lounge offered very good continental breakfast and an evening buffet with hot and cold snacks. At the executive lounge one may ask for a free bottle of water to take to the room. Service is very good throughout the hotel, but the executive lounge staff is helpful beyond expectations. Bruce, at the executive lounge was especially helpful with every issue. US dollars may be exchanged at the front desk at a better rate than in the nearby bank and significantly a better rate compared to the airport.
The concierge (Morris) can organize a 4 hour tour of Johannesburg plus Soweto with Mashabatours. For the transfer to the airport one may order a hotel limousine or a hotel taxi, which is less expensive.

As a regular business traveller to Johannesburg, this was my first stay in this Rosebank located hotel and what a pleasure compared to the usual collection of hotels in Sandton. The room was large, well appointed, modern decor and with very comfortable bed; the bathroom was modern with large shower unit. Breakfast buffet style was very good with eggs cooked to order a nice touch. The fitness centre and spa were excellent too.

If you do not know the city you are going to, booking at a Hyatt hotel is always a great thing to do. It was my first time in this one, and I have spent a very good time. Friendly people, good food, a very nice lounge bar and a decent breakfast restaurant. The fitness is, as often (Sao Paolo is the same medium quality) not of the standard of a 5 stars hotel. I did not see the pool, but the fitness is pleasant: no window, not enough equipments for the size of the hotel. The bed is a paradise as always. Though, no wifi, and not easy to print and scan documents: to be changed for sure !
