My fiancé and I stayed at African Pride, the service given by Wynard, Pinkie and Maggie was excellent and made us feel right at home. I would go back to stay at the hotel just to talk to them some more. We booked a larger guest room. If you like modern decor, this is the place. Plus you can walk to restaurants, a bar and shops. I really enjoyed my stay.

Date of stay: September 2020

I had to move to The African Pride Hotel after Marriott Johannesburg shutdown due to the coronavirus lockdown, and i stayed there for 3 weeks.

But, now this hotel will be my first choice every time I am in Johannesburg ! And here are the main reasons for that

-1) Their GM, "Tania Malan" who went out of her way to make sure i had a comfortable and pleasant stay. Her attention to detail in ensuring the comfort of her guests is exceptional !

2) Her entire staff - Hotel Manager, " HEINRICH GöTTSCHE" and Front Office Manager " Chad Louw" , Katharina, house keeping, in room dining and restraunt staff, all made sure that in-spite of the tough coronavirus situation, the comfort of the guests was not compromised

3) Also, the decor and ambience of the hotel is quite nice.

A+++. When i Jo'burg and looking for a place to stay........head straight to The African Pride !

I really liked this hotel, it was a safe area surrounded by places to eat and some shopping so basic needs could be easily met without being completely dependent on the hotel. Melrose Arch is a cute little area, geared at pedestrians and feels really safe. I did go for a walk and felt a change once out of the immediate little bubble but I still felt safe. The hotel itself was nicely appointed, comfortable, clean and the staff were pleasant. I would recommend the hotel and think I would have liked it even more if the weather had been nicer so the pool area would be more welcoming. The hotel really was all good, no complaints, even decent value for money. However, I would likely stay on more of a train line if I returned. I didn’t like that transportation had to combine train plus Uber or bus. I think there may be other safe areas that also feel less isolated.

Date of stay: December 2019

Business type hotel though of better quality than most. Check in after a long flight from the UK was a pain 'not until 3pm' Good location for the Melrose Arch complex which is a 'town' encompassed by security, so wandering about in both the daytime and at night to the many restaurants and bars is relaxing and enjoyable. Lots of shops here too. Good restaurant and a bar looking out towards to square, adequate pool and limited sunbeds plus outside tables some of which are uniquely placed in around 300mm of water to keep you cool!

Room tip: Rooms at the front overlook the square and at the back overlook the pool

Dear Parottuk,

Thank you for taking the time to complete this review with regards to your recent stay at the African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel, Autograph Collection.

It is, however, quite saddening that our Front Office TEAM failed to exceed your expectations on this occasion. We pride ourselves on them being our ambassadors, who deliver the most excellent service. Please rest assured that we will most certainly use your feedback to look into where it is we went wrong on your check-in process, and of course, to re-inforce our culture and commitment to service excellence with the TEAM.

We are so pleased to hear that you so enjoyed the appointment of our bedrooms, and of course - we are exceptionally lucky to call the Melrose Arch lifestyle development our home – a safe and secure destination where one can eat, play, shop and of course stay – all in an al-fresco style, cosmopolitan environment.

Thank you once again for choosing us, and we hope to have the pleasure of serving you again in the future.

Regards,
Lihle Mposula

A really lovely hotel and my favorite in Johannesburg. The staff are friendly and charming and go out of their way to be helpful. The food is excellent and they happily accommodate dietary needs. The bedrooms are really comfortable and stylish. My only complaint is the perfume smell in the reception area that makes me sneeze! Melrose Arch has good security and as a woman travelling on my own I always feel safe walking around the shops.

Dear moirac677,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on your recent stay with us at the African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel, Autograph Collection.

At the outset, we would like to thank you for rating us a whole 5-star!

We so appreciate your feedback, and are of course so pleased to hear that you found our STAFF to be welcoming, bedrooms to be at your comfort and of course our Team takes immense pride in offering an unrivalled and passionate food experience.

Thank you for bringing the perfume smell to our attention. Our signature scent, Davidoff Cool Waters, cannot be used when the Hotel’s heating system is on thus we resorted to a mobile unit, which might then need to be adjusted.

Thank you for the amazing review on everything as we are ecstatic to see that we could make your stay Exactly Like Nothing Else!

Regards,
