There is a family feel to the way the Da Vinci is run, although it is a business hotel. That's because there is a family behind the business, and that personal connection shows. I travel frequently to Sandton on business and almost exclusively stay here. Facilities are perfectly geared for both business travelers and tourists. Rock solid, good value and values. The management and staff are well integrated, friendly and are well-synchronized as a team. I will keep on returning!

The hotel is great, ideally located for business, excellent rooms. Some downside is the fact that there is sun at the pool area only for some hours per day and especially most of the afternoon is without sun at the pool deck. The biggest downfall is the fact that signs are asking for saving water and energy and reusing the towels, if possible. But despite the fact that I put my towels back on the rack every day they were exchanged. Bad environmental management!

We stayed there for 2 nights and in general we liked it. We actually asked for the room as high as possible, but we have got the lowest floor. The room was spacious enough, comfortable bed and great shower. Service was good and breakfast was very good. We used swimming pool as well. It was good hotel for 2 nights with shopping available just under the hotel and many places to eat around. But: you could hear you neighbors coming in and out all the time, no view at all. We asked for later check out and were allowed to check out at 12 without additional payment.

Room Tip: ask for the room as hight as possible

A very good, welcoming and efficient hotel - the room was spacious and clean, with a comfortable bed and good quality fittings. Staff were friendly and helpful. Direct access to the shopping mall was a bonus as was the free wifi, accessible in all areas bar the restaurant, which is on another level in the mall.

I was in Johannesburg very briefly from the 25th of October 2012 to the following day. I opted to stay at the DaVinci due to the excellent reviews I had read online, as well as its central location in Sandton.
One needs not go outdoors in order to get to Sandton City, one of the largest shopping complexes in Africa. Takes about 2 minutes from the reception area to the mall.
I booked a double room (even though I was alone), and was very impressed with the whole layout, especially the bathroom !
It is situated behind curtains and glass doors. The bath looked lovely (didn't use it) and big enough to fit two adults. I loved the faucet design. Something I would put in my house.
Being someone who lives on the internet, I was glad to find high-speed wireless internet which seemed to be unlimited.
All in all, I would stay at this hotel again. It was tastefully furnished, and it best of all, it was affordable.
I chose to commute to and from OR Tambo Int'l Airport using the Gautrain metro rail service, which is a mere 5 minutes walk from Nelson Mandela Square. DaVinci Hotel & Suites also offers a complimentary shuttle service to and from Sandton Gautrain Station.

Had a flight cancelled and needed to stay in the city for a night--did some quick reviewing online and luckily booked the DaVinci. The hotel is in a nice neighborhood outside of Johannesburg with malls, restaurants and even some nightlife nearby. The staff was incredibly friendly and gave us an upgrade for 3 people at no extra charge. Breakfast included for 2 and free wifi. There was really just nothing wrong with this place. Would definitely stay here again.

We recently stayed at the DaVinci Hotel and Suites in Sandton. Hotel staff was extremely courteous, made checking a breeze. Great location with direct access to a lovely mall beneath it. Very close to Nelson Mandela Square, where there alot of great dining options. The hotel itself had a great look, very modern and up to date. The rooms were kept immaculate as well. I would have no problem recommending this hotel to anyone who wishes to stay at a luxury hotel in Sandton.
