Gym is good and modern, breakfast is good.
Room is small, the electrical adapter never delivery even promised and the Internet charge is high for me 600M/3days max@R200, as they don't have a daily flatrate, charged by traffic rate, that's not good as I need to download a lots.
Ease of access to Sandton City
Expensive third-party internet - there is no reason, in this day and age, for hotels not to offer free wireless and many in RSA do.
Cheking in is priceedures appear complicated and are unacceptably slow. I would strongly suggest that a modern efficient system be put in place!
Great location; good breakfast included in room rate.
A charge was made for use of internet. It was both very slow and expensive - not good.
The check-in and out was super fast. They let us check-in 6 in the morning and they didn't charge me for the night before, which was very nice of them. The staff in general are very helpful and professional. The location in Sandton is perfect, just across the street from Nelson Mandela Square and Sandton City Mall. The breakfast buffet is huge and has great varieties for everyone.
Just very minor things like not leaving enough toiletries by the room service staff.
For the Location and price its the best place to stay.Very central and comfortable stay.I Would stay every time I am in Johanesburg
Clean layout, helpful staff, gym, excellent location for airport train and shopping/business..
Only downside was expensive internet.
Very friendly staff; good breakfast buffet; excellent hotel gym - including spinning bikes; fabulous location.
Nothing. All good.
The hotel is very closed to Mandela Square. The silence in the room is ok and the breakfast is very good. The attendant tried to resolve my problem with the credit card with the company and the staff is very friendly.
closeness to the shopping mail
It took a long time for them to retrieve my booking details. I was almost giving up.
Near the Mall and in a clean location.
The Staff forgot that it is a hotel with different nationalities and endlessly engaged themselves in their vernacular language instead of speaking english. They should learn to speak the language all can understand. English.
Best value you can find in Sandton. 50M from the conference centre, and literally across the street from Nelson Mandela Square. Perfect. Great breakfast, great staff, very kind and always available and smiling. Can't see the point of spending more !
Nothing to say against the hotel (perfect location, great staff, nice room). One word against their wifi internet provider : g Wireless (a third party) : a scam. This company is selling voucher by the volume or time. For the volume : they count 10 times the volume used ! I ended up having reportedly used 600Mb in one hour... Of course the wifi is completely unable of such speed bandwidth... And sending 4 mails, one of them with 600k mail was accounted as 8 Mb !!! I called g wireless : they did not see a problem, and never called back following their "technical analysis". Crooks.
The friendly staff
The room was too small The absence of a bath tub
Staff was kind, breakfast excellent location the most appropriate, service not very fast, pool to small
Great hotel and location for shopping n Sandton city
Hotel caters for conference and business was not able to help us as tourists as to where to go/visit no maps or tourist info available
