The best thing about the hotel was the friendly staff..... the room was not as advertised and the food was horrible... as I booked the most expensive suite I expected much better service and food. The barman weirdly enough did not even know what drink he had... when I asked for specific drinks he was confused yet it was a...

We stayed at Apollo for 2 nights. It was surprisingly central and convenient as it's near all the main roads. Easy to get to Bryanston, Sandton Central, Parkhurst and JHB - which we needed. It has safe parking and security. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a great room although the Aircon was not cold enough. I would...

Only been for business conferences and meetings and their meeting and conference facilities are okay. Seems like an old venue where only the reception are ever received some design attention. Seems like a budget venue that serves its purpose.

Good hotel in general. Stayed for three nights. Reception good on arrival. It's a budget hotel. Keep searching for lowest rate on Line. Sandton nearby. Security good. The down side , the bedding was not changed for the three nights I spent. I could tell from spills. I never bothered to consult management since I don't change my bedding everyday...

The staff are all super friendly and helpful, and the hotel was an unexpected find when coming back to South Africa for a visit. Would definitely recommend this! The location is not the greatest, you will need to travel to see Joburg, but the service and value here more than make up for that.

Excellent decor, location and service. Value for money. Definitely recommend booking this hotel. As it has a conferencing facility, everything under one roof, so convenient. There are loads of shops around within walking distance.

The reception was good on arrival and excellent on check out. Evening meal service was below par, although the meals are value for money. Rooms are huge and spacious. Overall building touch up and maintenance could enhence appeal. 4 star definitely NO. I woul rate it 3 star and value for money.
