“No complaints at all”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

My husband was on business and I joined him for a week. I have to say the Radisson Blu was a lot better then I expected, in fact I really enjoyed my stay there. The positives: large, modern and stylish room, really lovely rooftop pool with great sun beds, very modern and open atrium and great breakfast. The service is generally very good and professional, concierge excellent for restaurants etc, and staff helpful and pleasant. Great location in that we were right in the middle of Sandton and the shuttle to the shopping centre was very useful. The only negative I could say about it was I didn't think the spa was brilliant (I had a pedicure) but that's not a good enough reason not to go back there. In fact I would go back and I would recommend.

I think Raddison Blu have got the formula right. Good size rooms, well equipped and good restaurants. However, this particular hotel has got the added value of excellent staff, very responsive to customer requirements or needs. I had a problem with the shower in my room and after my call, the problem was resolved immediately. I would highly recommend this hotel which is also convenient to shopping centers and the airport train.

This hotel is one of the better radisson blu hotels I have stayed at. The reception and bar areas are large and stylish. The rooms are very large with all the amenities you would expect from top class hotel. The. Pool is great and the gym is simply fantastic, set over three floors wth everything you could possibly want from a gym including classes. The wifi is very quick and free. The food was very good and the service was quick and efficient. I would recommend this hotel very highly.

Really enjoyed this stay. Staff very friendly & helpful. Amazing views from room. One of the best gyms in the building I've ever been in. Restaurant/ food needs a bit of polishing but they had just changed the menu before I arrived. I'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The higher the room , the better the view.

We stayed one night service was really bad, everything seems ok but this hotel is more concerned with trying to be stylish and hasn't trained their staff.
For R2750 we were very dissatisfied.
We've stayed in both in Jo'berg and found both to be overpriced, however Gautrain I'd certainly stay in again.

Comfortable in a lot of ways, but the little flaws in the modern decor (drafty whistling windows, a malfunctioning check-in computer that kept assigning me to occupied rooms, and the poorly designed elevator system) seem out of place in a "modern" hotel. I'm not saying it's bad, just not quite as upscale as it ought to be at the price, but worth it if you get a good deal. The restaurant food is very good and room service is very efficient.

This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are nicely-appointed. The restaurant is top-notch. In spite of all the good about the hotel, there are some quirky things.

1) The elevator system is very confusing. (Trust me.)
2) In the bathroom, the toilet is separated from the shower by a clear glass wall. So, if there are two of you in the room and both of you are in the bathroom...
3) The hairdryer is in the bedroom, not in the bathroom. Strange.
4) The gym is FANTASTIC. Why do they wreck the experience by putting anti-theft tags on all the towels?
5) There is no convenience store in the hotel.
6) Room service messed up my order, on two separate occasions.
7) The folks at the Reception Desk are very nice.
8) I asked for an iron and ironing board, twice. Once, the iron was BEYOND scorched and it groaned. Fortunately, when I called to get a replacement, Housekeeping took my shirts and ironed them for free.
9) Room walls are thin.
10) Free WiFi was included in my room rate. Nice!
