“"HOME AWAY FROM HOME"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2011

Having stayed at the Randburg Towers Hotel as part of the IFBB executive on 2 occasions i can only say its like home away fromm home. the hospitality and staff are of the highest standard and you are made to feel like you have never left home.
ur restaurant is great and so are the chefs . I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to johannesburg. I can only see this hotel going from strength to strength. Eugene Van Schalkwyk.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of the highest standard and are very quiet.

I initially stayed in Randburg Inn, but decided to move across to the adjacent Randburg Towers. I would not recommend staying in Randburg Inn - the rooms were stuffy with old carpets. The service is equally bad. There is a restaurant and small bar downstairs, which serves both Inn and Towers. Both are OK. When I moved over to Towers, I found the rooms much cleaner with better service as well. However, there were no safes in the rooms and I had to pay extra to make use of the safes at reception. Internet service was a rip off at about 5 times normal rates.

Thanks for your review, We would like to respond as follows:

Renovations to the Randburg Inn bedrooms started in aug 2010 and ended about a month ago. The bedrooms and bathrooms have been totally renovated - new baths, granite counter tops, bedding, curtains, etc. All bedroom carpets have been removed replaced with beautiful tiles.

You dont mention what service you were unhappy with, but needless to say we are unhappy to hear this as we pride ourselves in the fact that our levels of service are way above average.

There are safes available for use at reception and we have waived our minimal charge of R10 per day from now on.

Internet is provided by and outside service company and is the exact same rate as at any of the other hotels they service. take note that internet charges in south Africa are high.

We invite you to see the pictures of our rooms and the comments in the various guestbooks on our website.
