Stayed here for a week and was very happy with the overall experience. To begin with we were upgraded to a suite straight away. Room was big and comfortable and bathroom was adequate. Staff are really well mannered and the indoor swimming pool was of a decent size. Breakfast was excellent and all food and coffee in the lobby was brilliant. The hotel is on the Nelson Mandela square where you will find the best steak and wine at really low prices. The mall is very convenient and offers everything you need including a cinema.

As stop overs go, this is an amazing place, Gautrain from OR Tambo, safe and no need to leave the precinct makes this my perfect place in Johannesburg. It is a little expensive, but what price do you put on safety and luxury?

I love this hotel. I really do. Though I don’t know why. It’s brash and garish but it’s also comfortable and safe and it works. Great setting in Nelson Mandela square with escalators down to shopping mall. Super car service in lobby. Friendly and helpful staff and best room cleaning I’ve ever encountered in Africa. Very convenient for everything really

Stayed here on a business trip and it was perfect. Located at the end of the Gautrain from the airport it was very easy to find. The hotel is big with a number of restaurants and a great reception area. The fact that its part of the shopping centre just helps you get around and do a bit more. The staff were very friendly and helped make this a pleasant stay with their warm welcome. The rooms were clean and tidy and very spacious. The bar area is good and comfortable to drink by yourself or with guests. As for the breakfast, very filling and tasty. Thank you, I'll be staying again next time.
