Reviewed July 3, 2013

Had a splendid stay at Da Vinci
Clean, neat & safe
Service was outstanding
Location was great and just next door to the shopping mall
I had requested the front office for a membership for legacy hotels and was promptly given a card.
However I am yet to receive the password from them for the same
Pending this, I will decide to stay there or not in my next visit
A suggestion, they could do with some variation in their breakfast menu, during my 8-9 days stay, it remained pretty much the same throughout

I booked for a group to stay at this hotel along with using their meeting space for two days. From initial contact requesting a quote through to onsite service this was a really great experience. The location of the hotel is perfect for business and leisure as it is attached to Nelson Mandela Square and the huge shopping mall that surrounds the area. This is full of great restaurants and the shopping options are extensive too. It is also opposite the convention centre. The decor of the hotel is very modern and chic, I personally really liked it but some of my group were not so keen. The layout of some of the bedrooms was also interesting, I had a bath tub in the centre of my room which looked very cool but didnt lend itself to private bathing, there was of course a separate shower cubicle which provided more privacy. The room had lots of huge windows which made it feel light and airy but the views are nothing to write home about as it is surrounded by high rise buildings. The staff were so helpful and always smiling, they were a pleasure to deal with on all counts. The meeting rooms were very well appointed and our meetings went very well with staff on hand at all times to provide assistance if necessary. Overall a very good hotel and one I would certainly visit again.

Dear cbaatt,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write the above TripAdvisor review.

It is always wonderful to read the positive reviews our guests write upon experiencing the true DAVINCI standards and I am glad to hear that you find our décor modern and chic. You stayed in one of our executive rooms and thus the bath was open plan to the bedroom, whereas in all of our other room types, the bathroom is separate to the rest of the hotel room. I will definitely pass your review on to all our staff and we look forward to welcoming you back with smiles to the DAVINCI Hotel in the near future.

Kind regards,

The DaVinci hotel has a great location. The Mandela Square !!!! with plenty of restarurantes and shops to choosse from and across the street the Convencition Centre.
Food es very good with an excellent breakbast and better service. Rooms are ample and confortable.
Unfortunately the views are not so good as it is souranded by tall buildings with scaffoldings.
Probably the best option if you need accomodation in Johannesburg.

The hotel is ideally located as it is attached to the mall and Mandela Square. The hotel was clean and well kept. The rooms were large with huge windows so there was no hemmed in feeling. The hotel staff was exceptional and had great customer service skills. The housekeeping staff did a good job with the room, never had a complaint.

We stayed here twice during a recent trip to Southern Africa, both times while transiting within South Africa or going on to nearby countries. We found the hotel location to be ideal, adjoining a large shopping mall and a short internal walk to Mandela Square with its many restaurants opening to outside dining and with diverse cuisine.

Any request to the hotel staff brought a quick response, whether with information or personal guidance to nearby locations. Each of our rooms were well appointed, clean and quiet. One problem with the safe brought not only a worker but a manager to ensure correction.

We did not travel outside the hotel since everything we needed was close at hand.

We strongly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: End of the hall in some locations afford multiple windows

The staff was very helpful, but they seemed to be overstaffed. They would do just about anything you wanted. Shortly after I got into my room, they even called to make sure I didn't have any questions. The hotel was attached to a huge shopping mall. There was a courtyard with many places to eat there also.
