      It is simply a quality hotel, very well managed and in an excellent location for Santon's many fine restaurants, shopping and business centres. It is also a very short walk from the Gautrain with excellent services into Johannesburg Airport.

      The staff at the restaurant areas were great, friendly and service and food was excellent.However on checking in I was not told about restaurants, lift keys, or facilities in the hotel.Checking out was efficient and quick.

      The lift security system. And the free mini bar.

      The room did not have a heater that warms up the heat. The heater went up to 30degrees and it was freezing during the night.

      This is just the perfect hotel experience. Nothing else to add, besides my pure recommendation, if you stay in Johannesburg as a foreigner.

      Great location

      The room was small for three people, we were there for one night which was fine, any longer would be a problem.

      The location of the edifice is spot-on,magnificently designed and built. Hotel staff were quite friendly and offered assistance when needed. I will surely like to stay here over and over again. Was indeed an experience.

      We were disappointed with the variety of food offered. We expected more than we got and had to looking for food elsewhere. African dishes were missing in your menu.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      Very attentive staff, service was generally prompt and very friendly. Directly on the Sandton Mall was a big plus. No shuttle service to the airport was a negative but taxi was only $50 for a 25 mile ride so no great loss. Room was very well appointed and the beds were extremely comfortable. Bathroom needed some updating but were generally ok. We would stay there again for the location and the attentive staff. Service in the bar restauarant for an evening burger was spotty but the food and drinks were good once we received the attention necessary.

      Excellent location in central Sandton and close to the Gautrain station to the airport
