Absolutely great service by the lovely Kgomotso at reception. She was so funny, patient and attentive making sure to upgrade us to a more suitable room to avoid the noise of a function happening over the weekend at their parking area. Great assistance with some cooler box storage we needed and made sure to send a reminder on the day of our event which we needed it for.

The hotel is now called the Onomo, and thats probably a good thing as there is not much "signature or lux" about it. Does not mean that it is a bad hotel, just call it a 3 star facility. The location is very good with the malls just around the corner. Premises are kept clean and most staff friendly and helpful. My room was small, standard lux!?, which does not have room for 2 suitcases, as a singletraveller I managed. Travelling two, would deffo create problems. Room looked new, comfy bed, kettle, tea&coffee, safe, aircon, tv. Not much storage space. No fridge! Wifi was good. Bathroom was of good size, waterpressure good and no problem with temperature. Towels changed daily and most days refill of shampoo & moisteurizer. Breakfast is served in the small cafe Aura, which can be pleasant if it is not too crowded, selection is not big, but you also have a choice from the menu. Service is a hit or miss, some staff are very guestoriented, some are not. I had one meal which was cold and not very tasty. Coffee & cold drinks were good. For a few nights I would recommend the Onomo.

This is the worst hotel ever I’m currently here at the hotel, here for a month I’ll be leaving next week. I can’t wait to leave this hell place. Will never recommend this hotel to anyone even my worst enemy. That’s how bad this place is.

Perth, Australia29 contributions31 helpful votes
The location is fantastic, 10/10 stars, just a few minutes walk from the gautrain which made getting to the hotel from the airport a breeze. It is very close to lots of shopping and restaurants. The staff are helpful and friendly and make the place seem warm and inviting. The room was small but suited our needs. It was quiet and had an airconditioning unit. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were lovely and soft. The shower was a let down. The temperature seemed to have a mind of its own and it was impossible to get the right temperature. The included breakfast at a nearby cafe was delicious with plenty of options. Overall, our stay was enjoyable and we would happily stay again. They are currently renovating (not that it interrupted our stay or caused any inconvenience) and I’m excited to see what the improvements look like.

We were on a holiday to SA and we decided to check into your property at SANDTON City. At th etime of Check in, the staff were curt and un friendly. What was more interesting was that the BELL BOY was more friendly then other staff’s. The bathroom in the room is terrible, it takes 15 to 30 minutes for the hot and cold water to mix up in the shower. We were told that we had a Buffet break fast along with our booking. But what we were offered is a very Simple Enligh Breakfast which was un worthy. The staff at the Restaurant were rude and not helpful. We asked for Vegan Breakfast and we were not treated well. Not only did it sound like someone was using a jack hammer next door, several requests to reduce the disturbance fell into deaf ears. Infact we went to the extent of requesting for a change of room, which finally didn’t happen…

Me and my husband stayed for one night two days. The room was extremely small. Suitcase holder was broken. Took quite a while to understand how to automate it with hot or cold water while taking shower. The hotel is under construction. So expect renovation. We were not inside hotel most of the time hence don’t know if there was any construction voice. Location- quite close to Nelson Mandela square. Hardly 50M. One can walk. We felt, we could get better hotels in Sandton in similar price point with better facilities.

I booked the hotel for 1 night to start on a group-tour in South Africa afterwards. The hotel is wonderfully located in the very modern and safe Sandton Quarter, 2 minutes away from Nelson Mandela Square incl. shopping centre. The staff was rather averagely friendly, but everything needed was available at the hotel. Free water and coffee in the lobby, Wi-Fi worked well everywhere. The room was big enough, a good bed with clean sheets. The corridor and the floor in the room were rather dingy, but basically OK. The hotel was under renovation, so noise was unavoidable, but it was quiet at night. For me it was OK for one night, but for longer stays there are certainly better places in Sandton.

Fantastic location being a 2 minute walk away from Nelson Mandela Square with access to the shopping malls and great restaurants. The staff are very friendly and helpful to ensure you have a good stay, every morning, we were greeted before going out.wl We were able to check in earlier after arriving from a long 10 hour flight without any fuss which was great. The hotel room has some nice blue leds which can add another ambient at night time which was interesting. There were construction works going on however we didn't hear them thankfully. The area is very safe and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I came here years ago and had a good memory so we booked again. Bad idea! The rooms aren’t well maintained, towels are old, we even found blood on the duvet, dirty overall… no minibar in room, no water, wifi is poor… Breakfast is ok, average and limited options. All staff was quite nice and tried to help but they have no ressources. The location is amazing and great potential but serious work and investment is needed to meet basic standards!

Ideal for a layover A group of 10 stayed at this little establishment in November on the way to and back from Botswana A very pleasant and comfortable experience with extremely helpful staff When we were checking in the electricity was cut off and Andile very patiently checked us in manually- despite constant interruption from a rude couple who came in long after us. Full marks to Andile for being professional polite and assertive.
