Second time i have attended a conference at this Hotel. I was really impressed with its style and layout. The facilities are really nice especially on our last conference which was on the 3rd floor so during our break we could catch some sun and fresh air on the outside deck with the pool and with it being on the 3rd floor u obviously have a nice view.The Food was also great just what i needed. Staff always friendly and don't hesitate to help which i really appreciate as i was also once in the industry and know how difficult some 5 or 4 star guests can be. I was not one lol. i honestly can say i only have positive feedback and not Negative what so ever and not hard to see why u guys just won the award of the best business hotel for 2013. Keep up the good work.

Only stayed here for 2 nights but enjoyed the stay. The hotel was excellent - big size, very clean and very well equiped. Used room service as well and that was excellent.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very good. We also had an evening meal there as well and enjoyed the food on the menu.

Overall, a fantastic hotel.

- Excellent location: center of Sandton. Right across from Gautrain station and at walking distance from Mandela Square and Sandton City shopping mall.
- Super friendly staff, always smiling and patient to answer all questions.
- 5 star hotel facilities: we stayed at business room, with big bathtub, shower, super big bed and great view from room. They even clean up the room twice a day!

I spent two nights here before flying to Namibia for a safari. I had a 2-day layover in Jo'burg and chose the hotel for the location near the Gautrain and Sandton City. Here's a summary of my stay:

The good:
- great location across from Gautrain and a 5-minute walk from Nelson Mandela Square/Sandton City. Hotel was easy to find after my long flight, and the mall was a nice place to have lunch.
- modern hotel with nice rooms and bathrooms
- AC, wifi, etc. all worked well
- well-appointed gym

The so-so:
- dinner in the restaurant was great, although a bit overpriced
- service was great in the restaurant, but was average at the reception and at the street-level entrance. No major issues, just not very friendly or welcoming.
- the hotel was somewhat overpriced in my opinion

The bad:
- on Saturday night the bar was extremely loud until approximately 11pm. I could literally hear every word of the songs being played downstairs (and I was on the 8th floor). I was awake and it didn't really bother me too much, but this would be a problem if I had an early flight.

All in all the hotel provided what I was looking for: a modern and comfortable place to spend my 2-day layover, with a few restaurants in walking distance and easy public transit access. I would choose the hotel again in similar circumstances, but might look to another hotel for an extended stay.

Very comfortable room and good atmosphere all round.
The location is very convenient, as it is opposite the Gautrain station and a short walk away from Sandton City.
Although on a busy intersection, the windows are sound proof and there is no traffic noise.
The deco is modern and very pleasing.
Very good security.

The information desk is almost on the roadside and the reception is very impersonal. Room was small without supply of even a bottle of water or a fruit basket. The airconditioner could never cool down the room sufficiently. I ate my dinner at the hotel restaurant- a pan fried salmon fish and I was down with food-poisoning that night and the following day. The hotel flatly refused any responsibility for my problem and was completely unsympathetic. I had a very harried time staying at the hotel and would not recommend it to anybody.

Room Tip: Better choose another hotel

Firstly we would like to thank you for making the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel your hotel of choice during your recent visit to Johannesburg and also for taking the time to tell us about your experience here on Trip Advisor.

We are very concerned to hear that your stay did not meet all your expectations, it really concerns us that you mentioned you got food poisoning from our restaurant and that no assistance was offered, our procedure with regards to food poisoning is very strict and includes that medical assistance needs to be offered, we spoke to the Manager on duty on the night and it was confirmed that medical assistance was offered however declined.

Our Executive Chef has done the investigation on the mentioned items and all was in order according to the Health and Safety Board, we really do apologize that you did fall ill during your stay with us however we can assure you that we only use the highest quality of ingredients and trustworthy suppliers.

We really do hope that you give us a second chance to make it right and we hope to see you again in the near future.
