I called the Manhattan Hotel asking about shuttle services, I was put on hold for more than 10 minutes I spoke to Jonnie and he put me through housekeeping. I spoke to the lady called Phumla and she told me that they dont have shuttle services in their hotel and she hung up the Phone.

As most guests have stated, the location is noisy as it is in the middle of town. However, the service that I experienced more than made up for that! As I was here on business, the free shuttle to and from our conference/Gautrain/Airport was efficient and safe. The drivers and manager were so helpful, even when we made a last...

This hotel is situated in the Pretoria CBD, which has its positives and negatives. Be prepared to wake up to the morning traffic. Lots of food outlets nearby and there is a Caltex garage directly opposite the hotel. The rooms are nice but a bit aged. The buffet dinner is devine with a huge selection which justifies the price.

The hotel is OK. I think maybe its location isn't that good. It's on the roadside and the place is a bit crowded and they couldn't have amenities like a pool which is a great place to relax after a long day. Otherwise great place. The service is great.
