“Just another conference centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

A massive conference centre in the heart of Johannesburg's business community. More rooms than I could be bothered to count over several floors. The artist displays in the public places were worth wandering round even if you were not at a conference (which I was). Thereafter, it's a conference centre, so what more can I say? Oh yes, the catering is okay, although putting out a tray of food labelled Halal during Ramadan seemed touched strange.

“Excellent facilities and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

the parking space was not a problem and the general customer service was very good. Going to and coming from the Sandton Convention Centre from the guest house was a bit of a problem, but the GPS - Tom Tom was of great help.
