The air conditioning in the room can be greatly improved. Did not work much at all. The rooms are very small but practical. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The breakfast included in the room rate was excellent(buffet breakfast with more than enough to choose from).

The bedding was clean and comfortable also the room. The wifi available although complimentary is unfortunately capped at 500Meg. That is unfortunate, because the in room entertainment(TV and DSTV) is very limited in channels. So you can’t even really use the wifi to stream Netflix, Dstv Now or Showmax.

Overall it was a great stay, but I would recommend not staying more than 2-3 nights as the room can become very small for lengthy stays.

I spent two weeks at the Piazza Hotel Montecasino for business, and it was amazing from beginning to end! Starting with Sipho, the taxi driver who fetched me from the airport and took me to the hotel (and helped with daily transport to site) - he was a gem! Always on time, efficient and friendly. I strongly recommend his services. My room was always spotless, breakfast was great and so was the room service - the best soups and sandwiches I've ever had. The staff were so welcoming, helpful and always friendly. Being within the Montecasino complex provided us with endless dinner choices - we didn't have one bad meal. I would highly recommend the Piazza Hotel.

Rooms are nice but whoever designed them, clearly feel no need for bathroom privacy. There is no divider between bathroom and bedroom. You feel like you are doing your toilet business in the middle of the room. Also - no light in toilet so you have to turn on lights in whole room to go to toilet at night unless you use your phone torch. Would not stay here with my partner. I can only imagine how embarrassing it would be to get a tummy bug whilst sharing a room in this hotel. Also, we had one tiny shower gel to share, no shampoo, lotion etc. A bit cheap for a 4 star hotel. No teabags in room either. Mini bar was empty. Breakfast acceptable but no more.

The hotel is ideally located for sleeping over after a show at the Teatro at Montecasino, being only about 70 m away. The Montecasino complex is only 150 m away with lots of options for dining. Parking conveniently beneath the hotel. Hotel was as expected and ideal for a short stay. Breakfast was superb.

My room is noisy. I complained about it in the morning and nothing got done, Complained again in the evening and the reception staff were just arrogant. They make you feel like you are not allowed to ask for something to be fixed!

The air-con won't go below 23.5 degrees!

Due to not wanting to speak to the rude reception staff, i opened the windows, this cooled the room down but also let in the noise from the fountain, and music from the restaurants.

This place is horrible! Rather stay somewhere else!

Strange room layout .Rather stay at the Hi Monti.
The room has a shower and bathroom only enclosed by glass not separate to the room. Basin is in the room.
One can get better value at a different hotel.

We have been staying at Sun Square Montecasino for a few years now over the festive season. It is a consistently pleasant experience. The hotel rooms are minimalist but are comfortable and have everything that you may need. Staff are friendly. Check in can however be done more efficiently.

Very nice stay as always. Breakfast could be better. Not a great deal of choice, especially when we compare to our last stay at Indaba Hotel which has a fantastic breakfast. Service at breakfast also slow with too little staff to clear tables and organise coffee etc.

this is a good business hotel. The rooms have everything but are really small. Breakfast great and well presented. lots of safe free parking.
Slight noise factor from the piazza at night but the a.c covers it a a little.
The montecasino precinct is a great stopover and has everything - feel like a small very festive Italian village with a casino.
my negative - the beds are small for two people .

No, the hotel does not have a pool as it is situated on the piazza that has the big water fountain that is made for running and playing in. All guest of the hotel can however use the pool of our sister hotel, Southern Sun Monte Casino which is just on the other side of the road about 120 meters away.
