“Mercure Johannesburg Randburg”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

The Mercure in Randburg is a budget hotel located outside of Johannesburg, If you have a rental or access to a car, this is workable but you get what you pay for at 60 bucks a night.

I arranged a pickup from the airport that cost R450 or $50. What you save on the daily rate, you will give back in expensive taxi fees. The hotel restaurant only serves breakfast but there is a small mall (bridgewater commons) nearby but with very good restaurants at decent prices. There is an African restaurant called Homebaze that serves great food. The other complaint is that the only is quite stingy with the internet and charges for access. 50 rand for 40 minutes or 89 rand for 289 megabytes. You get 20 megs for free daily.

The staff is ok, I was able to save some money by getting a taxi to the sandton train station for 200 rand, I then took the very efficient train to the airport which costs 115 rand from Sandton

Great hotel with very reasonable prices. I was very happy with my stay and was able to check-in at 10pm with no problem. The staff was very professional and everything was great. The only negative thing I would say is the sound proof is not great, I heard people from other rooms.

Built for purpose - definitely not for a holiday but perfect one or two night business purposes. Staff very well trained, friendly and helpful. Will surely go back there if I need to be in Randburg area for quick business visit.

Room Tip: No spa or room service on site but available from nearby mall

Weend staff @ reception were not so great; but everyone else was fantastic and friendly. Rooms were not huge but very clean and more than room enough. Good security also. Only complaint would be disappointed that their restaurant only serves breakfast, so needed to get deliveries for dinner. Would definitely recommend them and stay there again.

I visited my brother and parents in south Africa for Xmas and new year from Michigan USA .my brother lives in rand burg Johannesburg in a one bedroom apartment and he booked a room for me and my family in mercure hotel for a week.it was an excellent stay.every day they cleaned our room and the rooms were pretty big and spacious .they had excellent room service and bathrooms were awesome .it was so far the best hotel I ever stayed in.you wouldn't get a hotel like this in USA for this cheap price of 500 rand a night.i highly recommend it and the location near the waterfront is a great plus point to shop for souvenirs.aww..I miss south Africa.

My last stay at this hotel was disappointing. I am very pleased to say that my stay here last week was the opposite. All staff from reception to housekeeping were friendly, greeted me, and made me feel at home. My takeaway food was also heated up when I purchased dinner. The room I stayed in this time was perfect,clean,in excellent condition and welcoming. Breakfast was fantastic and again very very friendly staff. Well done mercure. Now that I have confidence in this hotel, I will defintely stay here again this year. Keep it up.

My wife and kids stayed there in October. It was a good choice being in close proximity to a shopping area plus the fact that they provide washing machines. My family had a long trip from Asia and have been moving into different hotels in Johannesburg for two weeks. The room size was ample size and clean. The kids appreciated the comfy beds.

Room Tip: If you're looking to do some shopping and also need to do some clothes washing, this would be a...
