My wife and I stayed for three nights and this truly is a wonderful hotel. The service was efficient and so friendly to make our stay comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts are a real treat and the selection is huge. Will be back. GandKfromoz

The hotel is brilliantly located, a bit old with small rooms, but very decent. Breakfast is excellent and service is great. Excellent value. We didn't use teh outlets, as there are plenty of restaurant outside which are not always good. very profesional team there.

We have been staying at The Michelangelo for years, each time we frequent Johannesburg this is always our hotel of choice. Firstly it is clean and the rooms are grandeur and spotless and the property is Safe. A true "home away from home". The food and service is world class and the proximity to Africa's most prestigious shopping center is...

Visited Michelangelo hotel again after 10 years and it's in a great position on Sandton Square. Staff were excellent but the hotel is very tired and is defiantly due for a refurb as you are paying high prices. As just things like switches and plug sockets and in general are broken or damaged. I asked for a iron and I...

I was on business and my Johannesburg office is in Nelson Mandela Square so I could not get any closer location wise.

I was booked into a hotel in Morningside for a conference. It was atrocious. Not the advertised 5 stars at all. I realised the room did not have a USB charger, so I phoned the front desk to borrow a 2 pin adapter. Sorry. We don't have one. No solution offered. At that point, I decided that I have had...

A great hotel to stay in the heart of Johannesburg, directly on Mandela square. We were in room 4015 overlooking the square with a great balcony. Doors sealed well to cut out any sound from the square. Staff extremely helpful and cooperative. Rooms spacious and elegantly furnished, meals in the hotel of very high standard. Recommended.

I was very surprised after staying for 4 nights that this place is part of the Leading Hotels. It is not at the level of the peer hotels in the area and is average at best. We had a suite and it was barely passing in cleanliness and had a very strange and inefficient layout. The decor is very old...

Staying at this hotel I felt like an important person. The architecture details beautiful , staff are efficient and attentive , rooms are very tasteful . My room overlooked the Nelson Mandela square. Hotel is right in the square . Food is really good there . Would definitely love to go back sometime !
