“A very good choice!”
Reviewed July 19, 2008

The hotel Mercure Randburg was everything I wanted it to be. Clean, modern, helpful and good location.
We arrived there at 7am and were thankfully allowed into our room. What bliss after 24 hours since leaving our home in Paris!
The staff were very helpful, helped to arrange a city tour with a local guide (well worth it if you have an afternoon to kill) and we could leave the bulk of our luggage secure in a locked room for the four days that we left to go on safari.
I particularly liked the location. Just next to a very safe shopping and restaurant complex, there was plenty of variety in the evening and when it came to getting picked up to go to the Kruger, the safari company willingly picked us up from our hotel. South African friends of ours wondered why we didn't just stay in Sandton( about 15mins away). Well, the cost was the main reason ( 50% cheaper than comparable hotels). Talking to other guests at Sandton hotels who, like us were staying there for a day before going on safari tour and then returning for a final day, they seemed to have been no better off than us and didn't have the convenience of such nearby facilities.
My only grumble is a lack of free internet access - there was no computer available to guests and a rather uninspiring but pricey breakfast.
I would certainly recommend this hotel.

We booked the hotel through last minute website for our 3 day stay in JHB.
The hotel didnt have any reservations for us, as there seemed to have been some sort of mixup on the website side (the site we booked through hadnt notified the mercure inn of our stay, but the manager called the UK and rectified the booking.

The hotel is nice and central to all things we needed access to, and a walk away from the brightwater commons (shopping/entertainment center)

The rooms were nice and clean, well maintained and pretty upmarket. Slightly on the small side but comfortable never the less. The food in the dining area was delicious and well cooked (we had the breakfast buffet included in our stay). Nice friendly staff and very happy to assist you with whatever you need.

nice place, well worth the money

i have stayed at the mercure inn randburg at least one week per year since it opened. if i'm correct, the hotel is about 5 years old.

being only 5 years old, the rooms and en-suites are clean and up to standard, and carpets are not muffy like new york hotels.

each year i spend hours on the internet wanting to book at a different hotel. believe me, i've done all the searching for you, .... you just cannot beat the total package, especially compared to their rates.

it is walking distance from the randburg waterfront (now called something else), a good place for restaurants, but i won't shop there, though safe etc. you are near to sandton (+- 8km's), mandela square etc.

if your'e unsure where to stay for a place OF SIMILAR VALUE, go for this one!
