If you need a well-located base in Sandton, this is a very good choice. The staff are friendly and my standard room was amply spacious and well-appointed. The bathroom was squeaky clean and had a walk-in shower. I enjoyed a dinner in the restaurant and a lunch on the pool terrace. Breakfast included a good choice of fresh fruit, juices,... More

The most significant point has to be the location - directly opposite the station. Rooms, facilities etc. are what you would expect. I had reason to use the laundry service (thanks to the BA cabin crew member who deposited a full glass of red wine over me on the flight out) - which was excellent (the laundry service, not the...

I have stayed here dozens of times the last few years. In the last few months, prices have increased rapidly. It's a nice hotel, but R40 for a coke, R60 a beer, is a bit outrageous for South Africa, even Sandton. Tray charges ensure R55 for a coffee to be brought to your room. Also, the lights in the rooms... More

Enjoyed staying here. The hotel is in the best location, directly opposite the Gautrain station. This makes getting to and from both the airport and Central Johannesburg or Pretoria a breeze. I booked the cheapest room directly through them online which was cheap by both SA and international standards. When I arrived I asked if I could pay more to... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Appreciated the early check-in. Room was clean and comfortable and well thought out. Location is perfect. Across the street from the Gautrain Station which we took from the airport and across the street from a beautiful shopping center (there is a shuttle but we preferred the quick walk). The breakfast was beautiful with everything somebody could... More

Decent mid range hotel close to all Sandton amenities with nice rooms and a decent gym which is always quiet. Didn't eat there but the bar is good and quite lively if there is a conference in town. Would I stay here again? Sure...
