I spent a full week at Holiday Inn Sandton. Very well located, walking distance to Nelson Mandela square with several restaurants around. Regular shuttles. Very welcoming and kind staff. A bit disappointed by the food though. Good rooms, well furnished. Nice bathroom.
Good place to stay for a business trip at affordable rate.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled on business

Typical Holiday Inn - great quality and centrally located. They have a great business lounge with snacks and coffee and drinks all day. Only stayed one night so not much else to add but always a pleasure to stay here. Thank you.

Visited the hotel on business and I must admit it was a great experience. Meeting rooms were well set, service was great and the set up was impeccable. Great food and really enjoyed a cocktail party. Not far from the Gautrain station and the sandton shopping mall; walking distance.

Thanks for the memorable service to Nikola and the entire team. Will be back! :-)

This was my second trip to South Africa and the Johannesburg/ Sandton Area. Work had brought me to South Africa the first time and I chose the Holiday Inn at random, but looking back, I would not have wanted to stay at any other hotel. I was overjoyed when I had the possibility to stay there again.

I would go back to the Holiday Inn Sandton for the people and the food. The fresh papaya and passion fruit for breakfast are out of this world, and the staff, both in the hotel and the restaurant, felt like family. The proximity to the Mandela Square shopping center is perfect for tourists and the hourly shuttle from the hotel is very convenient. The Gautrain station being only a few walking minutes away made working on projects in Johannesburg and Pretoria fairly easy. The wifi was very reliable and so was the front desk staff in terms of recommendations for tours and safaris.

On the first night I highly recommend trying the ostrich carpaccio (please see the picture) along with an ice cold Castle Lager. However, the rest of the menu is worth trying at least once.

A big thank you to the entire staff: Nikola, Precious, Bafana and Thandi at the front desk, Lyford and Victor in the restaurant among all the others!

I look forward to my next trip to South Africa and my stay in Sandton!
