“A great Holiday Inn”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

I have been staying in a lot of Holiday Inns recently and this was a reward night. Staff were excellent, room was exactly what you would expect and the venue ideal for Gautrain, shopping and accessing the city. Underground secure parking was greatly appreciated.

It is always better to stay in Rosebank or Sandton rather than the Downtown area, Holiday Inn Rosebank is right next to two malls...eating, shopping is very close by in fact connected from inside the hotel itself. The Subway station is steps away and you can always go to Sandton for shopping. Sadnton has bigger malls and more variety.

Many thanks for your review of our hotel. Location to the shopping malls and the Gautrain station are a value added benefit which most of our guests find brings a sense of ease and comfort to their stay. The Gautrain is 5 minutes away from Sandton and with a quick change at Sandton a further 12 minutes to OR Tambo International Airport. Once again thank you for your great review and we look forward to being of servcie to you in the future.

I just finished a 3 day conference at the hotel. The service was excellent and the staff helpful, friendly and have obviously been well trained. We ended up having a serious medical emergency when one of the delegates took ill. The speed with which the hotel staff, everyone from conferencing to management acted was truly commendable. They stayed with the sick delegate till the ambulance and paramedics arrived. I can highly recommend this hotel for conferencing.

Thank you for your review of our hotel during your recent conference with us and we were most perturbed to learn that one of the delegates took ill suddenly and our concern was to get medical assistance as soon as possible. Many thanks for your great comments on our hotel and especially our team at the hotel.

We spent two nights here recently. Our room (on the 8th (and highest) floor), had nice views over the nearby surrounds. The bed was comfie, with an adequately sized room. A nice touch was the choice of soft or firm pillows, and the small coffee making area (complete with fridge). The shower over bath had good water pressure and a multi-nozzle allowing for adjustment of the spray. The daily buffet breakfast was great, with pretty much everything you could want! We didn't use the gym (choosing to use a fully-equipped gym in the nearby mall), but it would have been sufficient with an elliptical trainer, stat bike, and 3 treadmills. It is appropriately called a "mini" gym, but it's better than not having one at all. This Holiday Inn is positioned approx 50m from the Rosebank train station, and the same distance to the nearby mall (which is currently undergoing a big renovation). Great location, close to all sorts of good eating places (in particular, "Love and Pizza Rule the World"!)

Many thanks for your very positive review of our hotel and I was pleased to note that everything was to your satisfaction. Our breakfast buffet in something that many of our guests look forward to during their stay and sets them on their day with a positive step. Our location to restaurants and shopping centres as well as The Gautrain Station is a unique selling point which draws many of our repeat guests as well as new corporate and leisure clients. We do hope to be of service to you when you are next in Johannesburg.

You don't expect this from a Holiday Inn. i always have the misconception that most holiday inn are just like cheap place to stay overnight. but this one is simply exceptional. staff are great. very helpful. hotel absolutely clean and good size room. the breakfast is brilliant. load of variety. good location. the mall of rosebank is just below the hotel and even linked with stairs and lift.

This hotel had a very nice location being right by a shopping center. At first this worried me that it would be noisy, but it was not a problem at all. It was really nice to have a variety of restaurants in nearby if you choose not to eat at the hotel and many stores to shop in. It was also in a nicer part of Johannesburg and was very safe to walk around. Although, I still do not suggest walking around at night by yourself.

Upon arrival the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were in our room in under ten minutes and settling in. They even took our suitcases up for us.

Our room looked very nice and had a balcony. There wasn't much of a view from our balcony, but it was nice to be able to sit outside at night. My traveling partner did say that she saw a bug when she got up in the middle of the night on our floor which made me think it could have been a little bit cleaner. But overall, our accommodations were pleasant.
