I've used this hotel on quite a few occasions and most likely to use it on several more. The location is great and some really good restaurants just across the road - one is spoilt for choice. The Orient, which serves pan-Asian cuisine is by far one of the best places I have sampled eastern cuisine in. Moyo, the African restaurant is pretty good too.
Rooms are very nice and roomy. The bath tub almost in the room was a bit disconcerting at first, but one gets used to it soon enough.
The bar is lovely and offers a great selection of drinks. Service at the bar is pretty good too. Menu choices are a bit restricted, especially for a vegetarian. But with the choice of restaurants nearby, it does not matter too much.
Overall, the Melrose Arch precinct is great, but about a quarter the size of Sandton. One tends to outgrow the place fairly quickly if one is a regular visitor or plans to stay for a long time.
