Very good Front desk staff. Great rooms. Very safe. Really Enjoyed the atmosphere. Restaurants on the bottom also very cool. I would recommend it to friends and family. Very central for the area. In walking distance from Sun Casino Hotel and amnesties.

The AC was not operational and after several requests and after a shift change we were asked to move to another room well after mid-night, how can it take so long to resolve such a simple issue!!!! Months later and still no call from management!!

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay in this hotel for 3 weeks for work. This hotel was absolutely amazing! I stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment that came complete with a full kitchen and washer and dryer. The hotel has a shuttle which offers drop off and pick up service. And tours can be booked at the front desk. Right outside the hotel are some amaxing restaurants. Turn n tender, and the mexican restaurant. Turn n tender is a steak restaurant that has the best steaks I've ever tasted. There is also a Starbucks, 2 grocery stores, a pharmacy and a mini mall connected to the hotel. And numerous ATMs and a currency exchange. The staff was amazing, the hotel was beautiful. This will be my home whenever I visit Pretoria.

My stay was great but some things to keep in mind 1. Buy late night snacks at the nearby stores because there are no vending machines. We had electricity cut( load shedding) with covid lockdown curfew with no snacks from 8pm. No vending machines within the facility. 2. Room service restaurant is a weird fusion asian restaurant. If you love room service, you might not like it. There are many restaurant within 50m of the hotel so that's great. 3. Swimming pool closes at 5pm and you are right next to the patron of the restaurant who are all fully clothes and not staying at the hotel so it can be weird. 4. Free shuttle: Apparently not free and you have to book in advance. Had to uber around.

My family and I spent three months in a two-bedroom apartment in the Capital Menlyn Maine. It was recommended to me by colleagues and I'm glad that I followed her advice. It is incredibly convenient being that it is connected to a great mall with three grocery stores, multiple restaurants, banks, and just about everything else you could want including a copy shop, clothing stores, etc. We spent our two weeks of quarantine here after arriving in South Africa and it was easy to have groceries and meals delivered. Since we didn't have a car for the first few months, living at the Capital made life really easy as we could easily pop downstairs for groceries and meals, as needed. There are plenty of Ubers around when you need to go somewhere. Our apartment was great - a little tight for three people but not bad. It featured a full kitchen which included a washer and dryer (although they are small and take quite some time to wash/dry a load). The kitchen is stocked with basic pots, pans, cups, plates, etc. There is a television in every room and the wireless internet is generally quite fast and reliable. I teleworked from the hotel and my son briefly did virtual learning from there so we really needed a reliable connection. There are desks in the bedrooms where you can easily set up a virtual office. The beds are huge and super comfortable. I wish I could have taken it with me! The rooms are tastefully decorated. The hotel has a lovely (but relatively small) pool on the second floor that overlooks the restaurants below. The pool deck is a nice place to hang out on a sunny day and is rarely crowded so we felt safe, even during the height of COVID. There is also a small gym with the basics which was almost always empty. The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating (although I need to note they were less so to our African American colleagues who experienced a few challenges during their stay). My only regret is that the Capital chain has not yet rolled out a loyalty program which would have benefitted us greatly after a three month stay. With these few exceptions, I would definitely recommend the Capital for those looking for a comfortable, convenient place to stay in Pretoria.
