Attending a wedding of a friend on Saturday nearby I decides to stay at the African Pride Melrose Arch. They are on the Marriott reservation/rewards system. In all fairness, everything is great about this hotel: the hotel / the rooms / the staff / the breakfast / the location etc etc etc. Not your cheapest option but very much worth... More

Stayed here with my spouse a total of 3 nights on two different occasions. We were floored by the service from the moment we set foot in the gorgeous surroundings of the lobby. The front desk treated us with respect and care, especially as we had just traveled for 20 hours to reach this first stop of our journey. We... More

Clean, comfortable city hotel. Could have been in any city anywhere in Europe, nothing African about it, lacked character. Very business like, no warmth to the reception or service, but it was efficient. We only stayed one night before flying. Reception arranged our transport to the airport which was very expensive. Our room overlooked the pool and pool bar which... More

I was a bit disappointed. The staff was not very friendly at check in and the concierge was not overly helpful when I asked for assistance in booking restaurants for dinner. I found he whole hotel to have a more stuffy business atmosphere than one for the vacationer. The hotel is located in a safe area with lots of restaurants... More

The hotel has all the basics you'll ever need.. The open shower that's right beside the bed was a bit weird at first but then I loved it! It's located directly in Melrose Arch which is the heart of everything happening in Johannesburg.. The rooms are artistically designed & the service was great.. Do get a milkshake by the bar...

Had a short two night stay in this hotel. The hotel is quite modern with a large reception area which has very comfortable seating and lots of arty decor. We were welcomed by the doorman and porters who took care of our luggage and delivered it to our room. We had a double room which was spacious enough. Large bed,... More

A five star venue with professional staff in attendance. Includes oysters, champagne, fresh salmon and mackeral. The huge choice of hot breakfast options are excellently prepared. Relax with the Sunday times and cpoious amounts of cappuchino. Purchase a loyalty prokard from Marriott and enjoy a 50% discount. Best kept secret.

Amazing Time. Central location. Great beds, Great service. Wonderful & SAFE area. Loved how Melrose Arch felt like a gated community of its own within Jo'burg. Will definitely come again and stay at African Pride. The hotel offered tours were a bit expensive so we were able to find other deals through other certified companies but overall it was a... More

If you book in at Melrose Africa Pride Hotel you are going to be in the centre of the bustle without the hustle! The hotel itself is quite arty with swagger/great bar lounge area and rooms are contemporary. You can walk around Melrose on foot as its a precinct developed for ease of living with beautiful bricked roads and everything... More
