I spent a week at the Moloko running various workshops. The service was excellent. Nothing was too much. Every staff member was friendly; helpful and very professional. Food was good. Overall a great experience.

Very conveniently situated. Welcoming staff. Plenty of parking. Large comfortable room with fridge and microwave. Good security. Numerous sets of steps to get to the room so not suitable for wheelchairs.

We where part of a large group, 10 rooms, to check in. The welcome note in the room was addressed to another person in the group. While the room was very spacious, the design and decor looked like they where from different eras. The air conditioning unit did not work. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. It was...

Items were wrongly priced on menu. There was a discrepancy between the menu and what we were charged. Spa staff were atrocious resulting the the cancelling of spa treatment. Lazy, rude and sarcastic. Book somewhere else.

We stayed at the Capital Moloko in early Feb 2017. And it appeared we were the only ones! We didn't see a single guest other than ourselves. But we are not surprised. The hotel itself is lovely. Our room (216) was huge with a small kitchen, open bathroom (separate toilet) and the bed was really comfy. But that the only...

Very disappointed as otherwise it is a really nice hotel but I don't expect a 5 star hotel to have a...

Having stayed at different Capital hotels over the past few years, my first visit to the Capital Moloko was a refreshing experience. While my go to Hotel chain has been the Capital Group, the Moloko proved to be value for money. Most imoressive was the size and cleaniless of the rooms. If you are looking for a comfortable, clean room...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay serene. Stay where you count. All our guests at The Capital Moloko, enjoy complimentary parking, complimentary scheduled transfers to Sandton and complimentary Wi-Fi access. In fact, there is every modern convenience you would imagine - all with the surprise of a hidden garden of tranquillity; calm amid the noise and haste. The Capital Moloko is sublime - especially when it comes to our particularly personal service; quietly attentive; reassuringly exclusive; excellence in supreme hospitality. In fact, while The Capital Moloko is miles apart from any other experience, it's perfectly positioned close to thriving centre of Sandton - the premier 'capital' of South Africa for shopping, business and commerce. For those crucial conferences when business need smaller rooms for important matters to be discussed or the details of big deals to be thrashed out in detail, The Capital Moloko provides the ideal environment - including 3 meeting rooms (that can also used as private dining rooms), a lounge and a restaurant perfect for cocktails. It's a venue perfect for smaller, more intimate celebrations. ... more   less
