This was my second visit to this property. Don't have much to add to the first review. Service is exceptional (although did have trouble with e-mail communication. My only complaint); rooms are beautiful and quiet. If you're cheap, like me, it's easy to get to from the train (20 sec. walk), conveniently located next to Rosebank Malls. If only it... More

We flew in from Atlanta to Johannesburg. This is the perfect stopover to recover from jet lag. You can walk to the nearby pedestrian mall loaded with shops and restaurants. Rooms were huge and splendid. Quite luxurious but affordable because of the strong dollar and weak rand.

Lovely hotel within walking distance of Gautrain station (Rosebank) so perfect for quick reliable airport transfers. Nearby Mall has a selection of places to eat. Elegant spacious rooms and genuinely friendly helpful staff. Excellent breakfast in dining room or in your room for no extra charge.

Fantastic location, right across from the Gautrain station, coming straight from the airport. Also, right next to the mall and countless restaurants. Our suite had a lovely living room, a spacious bedroom with a glorious bed and immense closets and an impressive bathroom which had both a tub and a shower. Everything was super clean and service was excellent both... More

Beautiful Hotel and in a great location. I had found this hotel on Expedia and got an exceptional deal! We couldn't believe it when we turned up - the staff were very friendly and the suites luxurious and large. The bathrooms were superb!

The hotel had no one. We were three and the only people having lunch and it felt very much ghostly and uncomfortable. The food was great and amazing, thumbs up to the chef. The deco suits the style of the hotel. Parking was a nightmare as we had to drive to the back through a narrow driveway.

The hotel consists of a small number of spacious pleasant suites. The continental breakfast had a good selection of fresh baked goods. We also had eggs and bacon from the menu and they were well-prepared. When we arrived, the faucet on the shower was not working, and it took close to an hour before the entire staff concurred and finally... More

This hotel in Rosebank is conveniently located next to the mall. There is free, secure parking. Service was excellent. Value very good. Rooms are all suites, traditional decor and very comfortable. We would stay here again on a stopover in Johannesburg.

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at the Monarch Hotel. The staff were very friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was beautiful and clean and the food was of gourmet standard. We enjoyed eating lunch on the terrace on the day we arrived.
