A Blend of casual elegance and comfort.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 04 Jul 2023
We enjoyed staying at Clico Hotel in Johannesburg, exceeded all my expectations. It is an elegant boutique hotel, We loved by its vintage charm blending seamlessly with modern amenities .Incredible shower. It was spacious, had great water pressure, The attention to detail was evident throughout, and the comfortable mattress combined with the soft and luxurious sheets ensured a restful night's sleep.

The restaurant at Clico Hotel was a true gem, especially on a winter night. It had a cozy and quiet ambiance, perfect for a relaxed evening. The elegant decor added a touch of sophistication, yet it remained comfortable and inviting. The menu offered many options, including several vegetarian dishes, catering to a variety of dietary preferences. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and service.
Another advantage of staying at Clico Hotel is its convenient location. Situated near a large shopping center, I had easy access to a wide range of stores and amenities. Additionally, the Sunday marketplace was just a stone's throw away, providing a delightful opportunity to explore local crafts and produce.
For those seeking alternative dining options, I discovered another fantastic restaurant, Marble just a block away from the hotel. While it was close enough to walk, I would recommend exercising caution when returning at night. Nevertheless, the short stroll was worth it, as the trendy restaurant offered exceptional cuisine and a vibrant atmosphere. I am already looking forward to returning to Johannesburg, and without a doubt, I will choose to stay at Clico Hotel again.

Good and safe location, not too far from city centre, also very close to JNB Zoo (which is a nice thing to do with kids or if you have plenty of time befor or after your flight...). Amazing food, nice and bright rooms, pool area very green and welcoming.

Had a lovely stay here - the place is intimate, well run, and looks beautiful.

The room was large, well equipped, and had a cute balcony with a nice view of the garden and the pool. Food at the restaurant was excellent too, I didn’t feel like eating anywhere else. Staff was lovely across the board, especially the ladies at the front desk, the security guards, and Spencer at the restaurant. The location was good - an easy walk to Rosebank Mall or Keyes Art Mile (during the day), and quick cab rides to most places of note in Joburg. They also helped me arrange a great airport transfer service.

I didn’t really have any complaints. At best, I’d ask them to soundproof their rooms a little better as the sounds from the reception, street, and pool could carry quite easily (however it was quiet when I stayed). Also, the hotel could think of leaving a small token for guests staying here over special occasions like most other hotels do - I checked in on my birthday and was solo, so it would’ve been a nice touch to have atleast a birthday card in the room (small oversight, I suppose, but every other place in SA I stayed at did make it a point to do a mini celebration of sorts the moment I checked in).

Room tip: If you’re a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the street and restaurant. Upper floor rooms with shared terrace have sunset views.

Very accommodating staff. We needed to set up a virtual court hearing in a bedroom at the last minute. They extended check-out, set up tables and chairs and kept the noise down.

The food at dinner was outstanding.

Booked transfer from the airport via the hotel and driver waiting on our arrival. Arrived before check in time but no issues at accessing the room . Friendly and welcoming staff . Room had small balcony area overlooking the lovely swimming pool which we didn't have time to enjoy. Large bed comfy and no issues with load shedding. Couple of minor issues with keys which were speedily sorted. The venue of the hotel is excellent and we walked up to Rosebank Mall in the early afternoon on the day of arrival. Breakfast good and varied choice. Good value for money

My husband and I spent a total of 7 nights at the Clico; we would unreservedly recommend this hotel. Our room was spacious, nicely furnished, very clean and comfortable. Both our daily breakfasts and the 6 dinners we ate at the hotel were delicious. A nice variety of food and drinks and very well presented in a cozy, intimate dining room. We could easily walk to the Rosebank Mall which offers numerous dining and shopping options. The highlight of our stay, however, was the exceptional level of customer service provided by all staff. We felt incredibly pampered and well cared for. This being our first visit to South Africa, we very much appreciated staff's willingness to share their perspective on both the joys and the difficulties of life here.
