DaVinci Hotel and Suites
Ranked #10 of 47 Hotels in Sandton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 19, 2011

I stayed here twice in a week either side of a safari trip to KwaZulu Natal. The hotel is incredibly well located, just off Nelson Mandela square in Sandton and only a few minutes walk from the Gautrain. For first time visitors unsure of Jo'burg (as I was) it is perfect as the journey from the airport is very quick, easy and safe (there are security guards patrolling the entire route). The area around the hotel is a massive shopping mall with several restaurants around the square itself, which does make it a bit sterile but again feels very safe.

The hotel rooms are big and the bathrooms are very spacious as other reviewers have stated and are well equipped. As you would expect from a new hotel everything is in good order throughout. The gym was well equipped and there are computers that you can use to get on-line, the swimming pool was small and I don't think heated (I could be wrong) but was good to dip in to cool off if sun-bathing)

The staff were welcoming (especially on our return when they recognised us) and friendly and the variety of food at breakfast was excellent.

The only sour note to our stay which I gather is not unique to the Da Vinci was the price we were charged for a car. To go to soccer city and back (a 30 minute journey) cost 900 Rand! I live in central London and have used cars from 5-star hotels here are they do not cost that much - so be warned!

Modern, well staffed hotel in a great location. Very safe location for those worried about personal safety in SA.

I stayed here for business this week. The service was first class, free valet parking, wonderful breakfasts included in price and warm welcoming rooms with stunning bathrooms.

As it is located at Sandton square visitors just need to walk downstairs to a choice of restaurants and wonderful range of shops.

We stayed at the Davinci Hotel for 5 nights and the hotel was clean and modern. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious. It's a very nice well run hotel. What sets this hotel apart from others is the level of customer service. The staff are very well trained and in particular, the breakfast buffet staff. I stayed at another Legacy property in Cape Town and they had the same high level of service. My only complaint is that I had called twice for a wake-up call and both times they had forgot to make the morning call. Luckily, I didn't have a flight or important meeting those mornings.

I stayed here for business and would highly recommend it. It is reasonably priced (I was able to get it within our per diem which is generous but not outrageous). It is connected to the Sandton Mall which is convenient for shops and restaurants. The only thing is most of the shops close at 6 so I didn't get to shop much. However, the restaurants are all open late and are quite good. The hotel is beautiful decorated all in black and white. The pool and lounge area are very nice areas to hang out in. The room is spacious and there are curtains in front of the bathroom if you are staying with someone and want privacy. In addition to doors to toilet area and shower. Internet and breakfast are also included and the breakfast is quite nice. Also, the staff are very helpful. The only thing I would say is not to take a taxi from here because it is really overpriced. Other than that highly recommend for helpful staff, great location, and wonderful facilities.

DaVinci Hotel is a beautiful, comfortable and chic choice for your stopover in Johannesburg. It is well located in Sandton, near great restaurants and connected to a shopping mall for any last minute needs. The service is a little off at times but it still remains a great place to stay. Rooms are large and beautiful. Food in the restaurant is also excellent.

Much preferred this to the Michaelangelo Towers or Michaelangelo Hotel. Been open since the football World Cup in SA and rooms are very chic, with modern furnishings and fantastic bathrooms. The lounge and pool area on the reception level is a great social space and the hotel is slap bang in ther middle of Sandton, surrounded by excellent shopping and restaurants. I received a little gift box as a returning guest and the service throughout was excellent. The walk to the Gautrain is only about 10-15 minutes, so no need for a taxi to the airport or train station. Davinci attracts mainly a business crowd and on weekday mornings always seem to be very busy with loads of suits and briefcases all over the place. I will be back again I'm sure!
