This is my basic go to hotel when in Johannesburg on business. The value proposition and location works well for me, centrally located adjacent to the Melrose Arch Precinct. The rooms are comfortable and clean if not the most modern and appealing design. I never select a rate to include breakfast as I rather "pay as I go" which is...

The room and hotel over all is not bad but the service is terrible ! We made booking to hotel shuttle to take us from Sandton at 10pm and they did not send the shuttle and made us wait 40 minutes in a very insecure place with beggars and drunks and prostitutes ! Johannesburg is not a safe place and...

On entering this "establishment " it looks "ok". However, the rooms are dirty and in good need of a proper clean , especially the bathrooms. The bad bit, however, is the absolutely shocking customer service that you will suffer in the bar area of this so-called 4 star hotel. Dirty equipment , not washed between one Customer service game the...

Quiet place where to relax after a work day. Good food, nice and kind staff. Unfortunately the fee shuttle is not connecting to the airport, but it brings you to the Rosebank mall in 5 minutes. It's a pleasure to stay here. Nice sport club "the wanderers" in front of the hotel if you want to enjoy a good pizza.

Tea and coffee facilities with a bottle of water and just for an extra touch an apple which was placed in a small space in the wall next to the TV. Comfortable, stylish bar area. A glass of sparkling wine costing about £5.30. However the air con...

I cannot recommend this hotel property to business travellers. The building is old. The decor is dated. It has a dingy feel. Not a four star (three if lucky). I had holes in my stained bed sheets. Food in the restaurant was sent back. Laundry service sent me warm (and wet!) laundry back. They forgot my wake up call. Disaster,...

The hotel is comfortable and clean, however, not trendy. Has more of an old fashioned look and feel. I would suggest a revamp of decor in the hotel rooms. Breakfast was good! An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Apples in the rooms! Free wifi! Friendly staff.
