My family and I stayed at the Capital Hydro in Mar 2016. We absolutley loved the area and the apartment itself. We rented a 2 bedroom unit and it was big and airy with high ceilings. The building is secured with 24 hour security in the garage. The apartment itself was well furnished, hip and modern. The staff were professional,... More

Living room has flat screen tv and surround... More

Over a period of 6 months, I have stayed here 3 times. I have always enjoyed my stays here except the last one. I am beginning to notice a decline in standards. They no longer pay attention to detail. It reminds of a certain hotel in India, which I will never go back to. I will try other apartments around... More

Well , I have not much to say of this one as I slept one night then moved to the Capital 20 West. For the time I spent there I got what I needed in terms of service. I feel it just needs a bit up touches here and there - one lift for such a hotel puts the traffic... More

Booked a 2 bedroom apartment here through booking.com. I confirmed via email with the agent who goes under the name Tee or Mohamed, that the apartment is fully airconditioned and the apartment will have an extra bed to accommodate my third child. All was 100% guaranteed paid for and confirmed. Upon arrival we were greeted by this arrogant Mohammed or... More

Big was my shock to arrive at my room to find someone else in my room that I have paid and booked for two nights. Not only that, my clothes and phone charger were also missing. I was sent to another hotel that is obviously lower standard. Never is a long time, but never ever wil I use or recommend... More

We stayed in one bedroom apartment this time around over looking Sandton square and Mandela Square. It was lovely and quiet. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. If we require anything, there is a help at the front desk and they were very helpful to us. And the view from the apartment was fantastic. The security was... More

It's an affordable and secure place. Nice for family and easy access to Nelson mandela square. However they can improve with availability of the shuttle and friendliness of staff I stayed with my wife and child for 5 days.
