I stayed here while exhibiting at the Sandton Convention Cente, which is just around the corner.
The room was fresh and clean and the bed very comfortable.
Bathroom likewise very clean (although the toilet roll holder kept falling off the wall).
Breakfast takes place in the coffee shop next door, and includes coffee/tea, juice, and one of 5 set breakfasts.. a good range. And well prepared. Note that it can fill up at peak times.
Location wise it can't be beaten. A short walk from the Gautrain station (300m or so).. adjacent to Nelson Mandela Square (restaurants of every type)... and about 200m from Sandton City and the Convention Centre.
There is a lock-up facility to leave your luggage if you arrive early (free) or leave late (for a tiny fee).
Reception desk was quick and efficient, and you can expect smiles and greetings from all staff, even if you pass a cleaner in the hallway.

I have visited the hotel about 5 times, since 2019 on business. The reception staff friendly but the lady that cleans the messy coffee bar is very cold and treated me like an irritation, you have to go to ground floor to get coffee or tea which in itself is a huge irritation, I wanted to get coffee at 05h00, the water was ice cold. Surely, it is not a huge investments to buy kettles and mugs for the rooms or at the least have a coffee station and ice machine in each floor, had to go to the ground floor restaurant to get ice. The passages to the rooms are not air-conditioned, humid, In high traffic sweep and clean more than once a day.
The rooms are very small but very clean and the beds and linen fresh and comfortable. The service is fairly quick, the lady who brought me the ironing board was professional. Please improve because your location is superb.

There are always people going home from having a night out that you hear about midnight. I am a light sleeper though. The staff are friendly and yes room is tiny but you get what you are paying for and good enough for a business trip. I always feel secure here and not at risk at all as location is ideal and you can walk to all the restaurants in Nelson Mandela Square no matter what the time is.

We travelled here from the UK with the sole purpose of using it as a base to watch South Africa versus England in the cricket.
The hotel is well connected to OR Rambo airport by the Gautrain and Sandton station is a 3-5 minute walk.
After an initial disappointment of being allocated a room which had not been cleaned we returned to reception. After a short 15 minute wait we were given another room and also a gesture of goodwill to waive the charge to hold our bags securely on the day of our departure.
The room itself is basic but very clean and comfortable. Nice double bed (although wed asked for 2 singles), modern bathroom with great shower (once you could find try right temperature) and good Aircon. There is a small safe in the room to lock valuables away along with a hairdryer attached to one of the walls. A massive plus unlike other hotels I've stayed in is that there is a window that you can actually open!!!!
This was purely a base for us and we weren't there during the day so I can't fairly comment on the hotels other facilities. But as somewhere to start and finish the day in it was all we could ask for.
The location of the hotel in relation to Nelson Mandela square is probably it's biggest asset. You are spoilt for choice of fantastic restaurants and you will never go hungry. As we were there for the cricket it was great to do a bit of cricket celeb spotting and were not disappointed.
Would highly recommend Trump's Grill and the Butcher shop and grill to eat in.

I have been staying at this hotel for the last 6 months on business and the service levels just gets worse with each visit..No matter how many times you complain or send emails or advise on media website ,hotel and staff have a do not care attitude..My trip now will be the last I will use this hotel..Do not be attracted by the competitive rates -It’s a fools paradise ..
I checked in last night the 21/02-from bad reception to a poor quality room no bother..
This morning on the 22/02 the hot water hardly came out of the tap./
This afternoon at 18h00 before leaving for dinner there was no hot water at all..
At 22h00 this evening no hot water again..Is this what you pay for ./
On querying for the 3 time the reception advises because of low occupancy the maintenance turns hot water off in evening..So are the guests expected to have a cold shower or do not shower at all??
I will never use this hotel again and advise people to stay clear of there rates as it’s a fools Bargin..

The highlight of my visit was the lighting. The place is really beautiful but its way too small. There's no space to move around. Everything is cramped. The tap is in the bathroom and you are expected to believe that the water is extra clean and can be used for drinking as well.

Most visitors would think that this is value for money considering the retail price, however I have seen a lot better for similar or less rands per night. The decor on arrival is certainly well done for a value hotel with low dust finishings yet pretty.
The rooms however are clearly done on a low budget. The finishes are cheap and created from painted surfaces that we very well designed in terms of the colour pallette. I personally do not appreciated laundry that has been in the tumble dryer for too long especially the towels. Nothing less inviting than over dry and scorched towels at the end of a long day and reasonable shower. The headboard is very noisy due to the poor quality of workmanship and low quality of the materials used. I love the led night lights. The floor lifts are well managed and quick. The coffee machine on each floor is a disaster in taste and execution. Good selection of channels and television and good size screen. The room needs an iron considering that this is a budget hotel with low expectations of room service.
I would recommend an above average vending machine for alcohol. The restaurant is a confusing mess and I am sorry that I booked breakfast. The entire design of the restaurant is poor on every level. The restaurant is cold due to bad airflow and poorly designed in general.
Either pricing needs to drop or the hotel needs to explore improvements to the problem areas.
The major plus is the outstanding position close to the gautrain, though the paving outside needs to be improved.I may be back.

We spent 4 days in this hotel because of a business trip. The hotel is very clear and clean. It also has a small "restaurant" where you can have breakfast. But we did not use it, because the Nelson Mandela Squire is only 1 minute away and there are many restaurants. We took breakfast in the surrounding area. The only thing I criticize about the hotel, there is no closet for clothes ! If you arrive with a big suitcase, you have to put it on the floor and that makes the small rooms even smaller. But otherwise it is OK and I would come back too.

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.

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.
