Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel
Ranked #12 of 47 Hotels in Sandton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I have been seconded to Sandton for the last 6 months and stayed with the Radisson almost every week. The team became like family which made the time away from home a lot more bearable. The service is always friendly across the board and you are always met with a smile. The front desk is friendly and efficient. They made an effort to always giving me the best room possible (not that there are any bad rooms). The restaurant has great variety with friendly service. Being a regular I was greeted by name and most of the team knew my preferences. The cleaning staff is considerate and friendly, giving me a extra bedtime chocolate for the kids at home. I am now based back in my hometown and will miss my friends at the Radisson.

Room Tip: At the moment ask for rooms facing the street as they are building next door

The location is at one of the busiest junctions and is in the hard of sandton city. The rooms are spacious and the breakfast buffet is elaborate. It just doesnt end.

Sadly they dont serve Pancakes or waffles and are little not clear how to work up eggs. I have had the worst omelette of my life, there. The chef presents the same menu everyday though he claims to be a masterchef.

One big caveat with the business rooms: They have glass bathrooms with no curtain. How do you expect two business people to stay in this room. I would have bath before the other one got up and then leave the room for him. What were you thinking, Radisson?

Room Tip: Go for the road view.

I was advised by friend to stay in Sandton area and was glad that I chose this hotel. You cannot find another hotel situated nearer to the Gautrain station. It is located diagonally opposite the station.

Train ticket costs 137 Rands per person if you are traveling from the OR Tambo International Airport. 3 stations and only takes approximately 15 minutes to reach the hotel.

Hotel offers free shuttle service to Sandton City Mall and Nelson Mandela Square. Room is comfortable and new. Wi-fi connection in the room is good. I particularly like the bathroom. Everything is from Grohe.

I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling to Johannesburg.

Very nice hotel and well located. It is close to Gautrain station, Sandton Shopping Centre and Nelson Mandela Square.Nice well designed rooms. We ate breakfast on the last day, it was great. The only let down is the service, it is not consistence, it depends on who you are dealing with. I also liked the complimentary magazines and the internet. Otherwise this is a great hotel, I recommend it.

Room Tip: 1. Internet signal is weak in some rooms, ask for a room with strong signals. 2. Parking is charged...

I stay in this hotel every time I stop in RSA. It is convenient, clean and relatively central in your business is in Sandton. It is also conveniently located close to the hotel, in a "safe" part of town

The rooms are functional, and the hotel serves its basic purpose. But don't expect a great service, nor anything other than what a Radisson Blu has to offer: a place to lay your luggage and head for the night.

On a plus side, the breakfast is not too bad, and they have a good selection of wines for dinner...

Great hotel, nice design, very good service. Very close to Nelson Mandela Square with great steakhouse "The Butcher Shop & Grill". Only small problem was a consruction site next to the hotel that created some noise during the day. But no big deal.
