We were shocked by our small room with black interior, not anything shown in web sites. also location is very restless in middle of non-safe area of Pretoria starion. Breakfast was good and service decent.

I do not recommend this hotel to anyone.

As other reviewers have indicated - the staff are friendly and obliging - the breakfast and dinner buffets offer something for everyone - and the rooms provide adequate but no-frills furnishings. What the hotel does not provide is double-glazing on its bedroom windows - and for some guests this could prove to be a really big negative - and for some, definitely a "deal breaker" !! Street noise is quite considerable due to the location. I stayed here with several colleagues and most of us attempted to block out the street noise by turning on the air-conditioners full blast; because the noise from the aircos resembled the droning sound of a jumbo jet one could fall asleep pretending one was on a long distance flight somewhere...

The Manhatten is a very friendly hotel with a great restaurant, but with some negatives. The score is really 3+.

The rooms are 3*, bigger than an Ibis room, but with much the same facilities. The soundproofing between rooms is not great and dreadful between the room and the corridor. We had some extremely noisy fellow guests on the first night that we were there, revving very powerful bikes throughout the night. This, however cannot be held against the hotel staff, who were as distressed as the guests.

The bar had very loud music playing, but the lounge was better.

The restaurant was very good. Omelettes made for you for breakfast put them up a notch in my book. They offered a packed breakfast for early risers and a large packed lunch for 90 R per person. Dinner was buffet style and very good.

Staff were consistently good and a special mention for the manager who dealt sympathetically with the noise problem.

Was there over the weekend with my husband to be, and we had an amazing experiance. The hotel has very friendly staff, the atmosphere is relaxing and calm and very very clean.

I also must compliment them on the free shuttle service they have for visitors,so you need not worry about transport in and around the cbd area.

At the Rockefella Resutrant the breakfast and food in general was amazing, very well prepared,compliments to the chef indeed and amazing decor making you feel right at home,and the hours are very flexiable you need not worryabout waking up too early.

You will hardly realise that you in the cbd,until you leave the building.

Am looking forward to our next visit!

Keep up the good work!

Its clean,staff is excellent.
Near Gautrain station. My room wasn't what I expected. It wasn't a wow experience when I opened my room as compared to my previous stay at other places. Room needed some refurnishing. I would stay there again given the chance.
