The Head Concierge, Archie, is undoubtedly the best on the whole African continent. As a matter of fact he could hold this position at any of the best hotels in the world as the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong or the George V in Paris: he's that good! and in addition he speaks fluently I don't know how many languages, remembers details about clients years after and always has a big smile on his face. The hotel is very fortunate to have him, what an asset.
I stayed in this hotel many times in the past with pleasure. The rooms are nice and spacious the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms absolutely perfect.
Location is great next to the best shopping mall in Johannesburg.
Room service is quick, laundry is excellent and even works on Sundays which is very rare in hotels.
Is everything absolutely perfect? Of course not but it is on minor items such as: the TV set is a bit small and I'm afraid this will not change because it is stupidly in a cupboard which will not fit a larger screen; not enough international channels and if Euronews is supplied in English it is not supplied in any other language and there are no music channels; there are only 2 international plugs in the room when frequent business travellers as I need as many as 6 and the multiple plug adapter supplied is of truly shockingly bad quality; sometimes too much noise from the atrium specially in the morning or at night.
Nevertheless I will rate the hotel 5 stars.
