The hotel has been around for many years now, and always been a solid choice. The bar has a pool table - but a stylish one. The restaurant is serving well prepared and varied food African/ European. Stylish African feeling and execution.

There is no gym in the hotel - guests can pay...

The hotel location within the Melrose Arch precinct is great. It's a very upmarket location with lots of great restaurants. The staff at the hotel are generally of a high standard, friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and well maintained. I dislike their plastic feeling floors in the room but that's a personal thing. The rooms are well decorate...

Very nice hotel in trendy Melrose Arch area in Johannesburg. Rooms are good size and comfortable beds. Quiet too. Nice pool and pool bar with plenty of seating- lounges, tables, bar stools. Helpful in arranging tours. Part of Marriott so we booked on reward points. Several nice restaurants very close to hotel. Safe area.
