+ good shower nice bedclothes. Executive rooms are well organized. - for breakfast be ready to pay 30-40 minutes of your life -Toll parking -Charged for minibar which I haven’t use. It’s my 5-st hotel in Johannesburg . Worst experience . I understand “Hakuna matata” and I don’t have any high expectation. A plenty of polite people doing nothing. There are several other hotels at Sandton with better service. Will never come back.

Popped in with friends to this beautiful venue and was shocked to pay R35 for a cuppachino that tasted as if it had been made out of mud and water, with not much mud, curry that was a weak combination of tomato sauce and potato, dry prawns and a burger ordered medium rare that arrived well done, R700 in total for really poor food and drinks.

Great hotel, great staff. Very fair prices these days but reckon its due to covid. Would recommend booking a room on a higher floor for good views. The hotel can be seen as luxurious. Great for business and families. (not a resort).

The staff really know how to deliver an experience. The concierge organised a brilliant driver for a day trip. Room service and restaurant staff were exceptional. Restaurant dining was a pleasure with good variety and great quality. Sandton is a bit of a bubble with lots of security but the staff help to make Joburg accessible to visitors.
