The service was good and the location was excellent if you're doing business in Sandton. My only gripe was that my room overlooked the construction site of 19 Rivonia and when I stayed there were casting concrete into the night. Food was great, too!

Friendly and welcoming front office staff. Good linen quality and bedsheets (standardized). Good and fast laundry service. Breakfast has good variety of choices. Unfortunately a huge construction is taking place next to the hotel, which might be disturbing depending on the floor or the side where the room is located. (Use earplugs). Shuttle service is provided to Mandela's Square and...

This is a standard business not unlike others in the Sandton area. It has a bit of an old-fashioned, "classic" look but it is fully functional both in terms of rooms and meeting rooms. Food is also standard - a little monotonous in workshops but the à la carte menu in the restaurant is varied enough. Good attention to the...

Why would you stay in a place if you cannot sleep in the room, food is below average with very limited range of cuisine for an international chain and worse of all very poor internet speeds that don't let you do video calls or even see Facebook video without buffering interruptions! A big construction is going on next to the...

The advantage of this hotel is the proximity with Nelson Mandela Square. As we stayed for only one night, it was ok. But I booked one room to 4 adults with one queen bed and one sofa bed. Ok, both were there when we arrived, but, when we opened the sofa, the size of the bed was not sufficient to...

The hotel is fine. The facilities are fine (I was staying there for a 2-day workshop) if a bit predictable and conventional. The food (I only had room service) was also just fine, nothing special. My room was fine, again nothing out of the ordinary but everything worked and I had no complaints. What made it special for me was...

This is a nice hotel with very friendly, helpful personnel. The hotel is modern, well-kept, safe and convenient for all places in Sandton. The restaurant was quiet when we went for a late night meal.

It was a perfect place to get away from stress. The place was beautiful, the staff members were very kind and helpful when needed, the food was excellent and it was served it on time. It has everything you needed. That will always be my favourite hotel.

Great time, modern hotel, helpful and friendly staff. I only stayed two nights, but felt well looked after in this up-to-date hotel. We had some good recommendations about eating venues locally and the hotel had a shuttle service.
