Reviewed March 13, 2012

Stayed here for 1 week. Place was pretty quiet, hence a touch soul-less. Style and décor that of an Italian Grand House, complete with frescos and paintings on the wall. My room was a ‘de-luxe’ King, and it was tiny although it had everything in there that you could want including a safe and A/C which worked well. Toiletries not high end which was a surprise. Gardens beautifully landscaped complete with water features and fountains. Location is right next to the Casino and a whole host of eateries. Breakfast OK but rip-off expensive. Two poached eggs on toast, Orange juice (x2) and coffee (x2) a whopping 195 Rand! Didn’t eat in the restaurant after that episode. Service is smart and a special note for Amy in reception who could not be more charming or accommodating. I thought the Piano Player at breakfast was a little pretentious but I guess if its pretention and mixing it with the wealthy is what you like/want, then this is the place for you. If its value for money or you have shallow pockets, avoid.

Stayed in this hotel on 25 February 2012 with a friend while attending a workshop in Sandton. Check in went well, and we stayed in a superior room with two twin beds. The room had a beautiful view over a fish pond and the outside breakfast area and garden. The room was very neat, lovely comfortable white linen on the beds. The bathroom is well appointed with seperate shower and a bath. There is a well equiped mini bar in the room, and coffee and tea making facilities. The hotel is walking distance from the bird gardens and the Montecasion complex. If however you do not feel like walking to the complex, there is a golf cart that transport you to and from the complex. We had a buffet style breakfast with a good variety of food, fruit bevereges etc. Will definately make use of this hotel again.

Stayed at this hotel with my partner over a weekend.
The staff we very friendly, polite and willing to help.
Room was great and bed was extremely comfortable.
Was however a bit dissapointed in the lay out and selection of the breakfast.
The location of the hotel and adjoining entertainment complex is fabulous.

We have just returned from a 7 night stay here and all I can say is ...."It was fantastic"!!!! From arrival to departure I could not find fault, this is an extremely well managed hotel in an amazing setting. We had a beautifully appointed room on the ground floor overlooking the garden with its own outside space.
Breakfast was an experience in itself, lovely well trained staff with a really experienced Food and Beverage manager called Mohamed Vahed to oversee. We ate every morning outside on The Terrace overlooking the fountains.
Deputy General Manager Madeleine Roux made herself known to make sure we had no complaints, also to see if she could help to make our stay any more enjoyable. How often does that happen in a Hotel of this size???
It was immaculate in every way, constantly being cleaned. The Swimming Pool area is also beautifully kept with service throughout the day. A really nice touch here was a constant supply of Iced Water was available free of charge along with Fresh Apples and Newspapers!!
We ate Room service and poolside, all very good.
The Palazzo is opposite the famous Montecasino complex and a stroll across a courtyard, where there is a choice of 42 Restaurants to eat at each evening. This we did and ALL were Fabulous!! The staff here could not have been friendlier and more helpful, we LOVED our stay here and Thank everyone very much!!

Our valentines day officially started when we arrived at the hotel parking lot, we were helped with our bags to the hotel reception where we were offered sparkling wine.

Checking in was a breeze and in a few short minutes we were on our way to our hotel room, we were met by a delightful room with everything that we required, thank you to the staff at the hotel for the special touch of the note congratulating my fiance and I on our anniversary.

After a relaxing shower and getting dressed we went downstairs for a romantic dinner, which Anastasia went well out of her way to organise that we could have dinner earlier as we were going to watch Phantom of the Opera.

The 5 course meal was out of this world and the wine devine, we were well on our way to having a great evening. After the show we returned to a room that was transformed into a romantic setting, with a rose petal turn down on the bed, petals in bath tub and a bottle of sparkling wine on ice.

Overall the night was memorable and we will definitely be visiting the Palazzo again.

Good hotel if you are in Jo'burg for some time as all the cinemas, restaurants, bars of the Monte Casino centre are just across the road. It's nice to be able to safely walk from your hotel to a variety of different options. (Although the hotel restaurant is very good too). The bedrooms are fine, the gym is on the small side - but you can ask to use the bigger gym in the nearby Southern Sun hotel. The staff are all very welcoming and eager to help too
