You have to keep in mind that this review is being written taking the cost of this accommodation into consideration. If you're looking for luxury accommodation, look elsewhere. That said, for the price and area of Johannesburg (Sandton is probably the safest and most up-end suburb in the city), you'd be hard pressed to find better accommodation than the Glenalmond....

I stayed here 2 nights. The apartment was very spacious and clean and I think reasonably priced! It's walking distance to gautrain station and Sandton city. I didn't recieve the best welcome at reception but the service and friendliness over the next few days made up for it. I also was a tad concerned about the locks on the doors...

Hello lariebo, It is great getting very insightful opinions from out guests and for that we are grateful. The welcome was certainly not what we stand for but we are glad that it improved over the duration of your stay. We will address the issue of the locks and perhaps look into a better system. See you soon. NJBL

My apartment was much larger than I needed, and very spacious and bright. A couple of problems though: there was no privacy if the bedroom curtains were open, plugs in the bedroom not enough, kitchen was not well equipped, and noisy staff in the coffee shop (they shout at each other instead of talking) My arrival was late, and I...

This place is awesome if you have a big group of people. We got the 2 bedroom apartment which had two bathrooms (main bedroom en suite), a little kitchenette, lounge and dining room. It was pretty cold but there is a heater in the lounge and wall radiators in the bedrooms. Breakfast is available in a quaint little breakfast nook....

“If you not fit, choose the rooms closer to the reception or ask your taxi driver to drop you by the door step. If driving, then park right by your room.... walking has health benefits though.”
