It looks really good, this new hotel. look at holiday inns in europe - e.g. in Germany and the UK. Most of them are really old and dirty (sorry). That's why i usually take Holiday Inn expresses.
I stayed here in this beautiful HI in Joburg for a couple nights and had separate bookings.
The first night I received a standard queen room, room 519, and i couldn't believe my eyes. The size is amazing. Huge, brandnew, with a even a sofabed!
The second night i moved to the eighth floor - same rooms so not really an upgrade.
I recommend you to stay on the odd numbered rooms side for WIFI internet coverage. Just the view is better on the even numbered rooms.
Service was great, bathrooms are cool with a rainshower, huge towels, wonderful soap, nice flatscreen, fridge with 2 free bottles of water (in every room).
Rosebank mall is nice, and next door (you can get there though an exit on the first floor of the hotel,
1) No iron in room. When you order one, it's locked to the ironing board and prevents you from ironing well, as the cable will be too short because of the lock. Crazy. Who would want to steal an iron?
2) Panel in the wall for audio video/HDMI is not connected at all to the TVs. So it never worked. Annoying
3) There's a little leaflet with your key that asks you for feedback. You'll have to call some number, but in small print on the bottom, it says you'll be charged for calling that number(!). Why would you give feedback if they charge you???
