We had an amazing experience at the Michelangelo Hotel after our wedding. The bed was turned beautifully and an amazing Champagne breakfast was brought to our suite the next morning. The staff were beyond exceptional. I would highly recommend staying here for couples.

This is the worst hotel. The bathroom flooded. The staff were unhelpful. The staff proceeded to blame me, the guest for, the blockage. The staff were incredibly disrespectful. The guest relations manager Mario Merola, offered no assistance whatsover. He only said I can put you in your previous room, he raised his voice and was incredibly rude and unprofessional. The...

Dear Mr Padayachee Thank you for your feedback and your version of events. Herewith our feedback: The initial room you checked into had an issue with the shower not draining as quickly as normal.

The entrance to the hotel is exasperating as there is work being done to the building in front which often results in chaos. The street taxis are at war with uber and taxing and makes the front of the hotel look like happy hour at a brothel. Therefore any sense of ease or luxury is immediately knocked out of you....

From check-in to check-out everything was seamless. The hotel is well located and has an amazing indoor heated pool. The hotel is well run and every staff member we interacted with was attentive and friendly. Every request was handled quickly and efficiently. The best service we've had at a Johannesburg hotel to date. The room was clean and well-equipped. We...

I had many meetings there over many years with local and international business people. It lends itself excellent for this. Quiet often there is somebody playing on the piano. The service was always excellent and the quality of the restrooms superb.

The hotel is brilliantly located, a bit old with small rooms, but very decent. Breakfast is excellent and service is great. Excellent value. We didn't use teh outlets, as there are plenty of restaurant outside which are not always good. very profesional team there.

Visited Michelangelo hotel again after 10 years and it's in a great position on Sandton Square. Staff were excellent but the hotel is very tired and is defiantly due for a refurb as you are paying high prices. As just things like switches and plug sockets and in general are broken or damaged. I asked for a iron and I...
