Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel
Ranked #12 of 46 Hotels in Sandton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 4, 2010

Great Hotel for location, very glad we choose this hotel. Very close to Mandela Square for shopping and restaurants.
Rooms were a little on the small side but was clean and comfortable.
Taxi service provided via Avis was expenssive and not that good, we had to wait for over an Hour at the Apartheid museum before we were picked up, was not impressed, given how much they charge.
The internet was also very slow. If I was here on business I would be extremely upset about this, given the fact most customers that stay here are business customers
The best selling point is the location and the great breakfast

I stayed at this property for two nights(a Friday & a Saturday) because I was able to get a rate of ZAR 1200/night(no breakfast included) on the Radisson web site and I could take the Gautrain from JNB. The property is directly across the corner from the Sandton Gautrain station and it is an easy walk to Nelson Mandela Square. The front desk staff was pleasant, knowledgable and helpful. My room was clean with a comfortable bed and well maintained. The bathroom was clean and everything was in working order. The flat screen TV was in good working order with multiple channels available. Unfortunately my room was on the fourth floor just above the pool and veranda outside the bar area so noise was a minor problem on Saturday night but likely would not have been so elsewhere in the hotel.
My only two complaints were a lack of a "real" concierge(the people who meet the cars and move the luggage serve this role) and the lack of a "real" business centre(there were two laptops around the corner from the front desk in front of a meeting room).
That being said, I think this property seems to be a new safe and convenient option for someone who wants to spend a day or two in the Sandton area of Joberg. It suited my needs perfectly.

I stayed here for 2 nights in Sept 2010. Working elsewhere during the week, I wanted to see Joburg and preferred a modern style hotel at a reasonable cost. I secured a rate of only ZAR 1515 per night not including breakfast. The rooms are not large but well designed, very clean and with everything I wanted. The restaurant and bar were great - had one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. Above all however, the staff were superb. I really wanted a swim and this hotel does not have a proper pool - for that you have to stay at the other Raddisson in Sandton which is more expensive. The price for a day membership at their gym/pool was crazy, so Jay at reception obtained a free voucher for me at his gym - the Virgin Active and provided instructions on how to get there. Great service which left me feeling great about this brand - someone give him a pay rise!

Rate for a standard room was Rand8,000. Positive: good location to Sandton city n airport train station, efficient n friendly staff, good bf spread. Cons: design n finishing more like a 4 star business hotel, rooms too small, toilet/ bath too exposed, limited menu in coffee house, in house movie channel faulty, gym n pool a joke, newspaper not delivered despite two reminders . Really not worth the ridiculous high rate.
