Standard Holiday Inn layout and feature. A bit disappointed with the lounge. There was not anything to offer other than drinks. The hotel's best feature is the location: close to airport transportation, shopping center, and walking distance to Avis car rental. I was able to return my rental car to save a day's cost and took the train to the...

The location is very good and access is easy, two mins from the N1 and central in Sandton. The rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained with iron And safe. Breakfast good with nice variety and quality coffee. The staff are exceptionally friendly, especially Chuene at reception who was very helpful and welcoming. Will certainly be back!

They are constructing a new holiday inn 50 meters away. Impossible to sleep with the single pane windows and the hammering, jack hammers and heavy equipment at work. If you want to sleep past 6 am, either get a room away from the construction or go to a different hotel. The staff are very nice and the rooms are modern...

Stayed here on two nights, whilst travelling via Johannesburg Airport. All I can say it is a typical holiday inn type accommodation, nothing special. The room was clean, but basic. The restaurant was nice and offered good food. There was a good selection for breakfast.

I only stayed here 1 night as a stopover. It was your typical Holiday Inn except for the fact, there was tons of construction going on right next door. I believe they were building an addition and a mall. I arrived at 6:00 am after a long flight from the US. Was super tired and all i wanted to do...

Comfy large bed and great pillows - most important to us. Spacious rainshower - lovely. Well-functioning aircon, nice view. Good-sized room with desk, chair and armchair. Staff made sure we were given a quiet room away from building site next-door as we stayed 5 nights. Restaurant good (except below standard pasta dish).

With a construction site right next door running 24 hours around the clock the noise levels were unacceptable. At one point a jackhammer was in use at 3 am.. The site is also lit with huge lights shining into the rooms at night. Holiday Inn Sandon to be avoided!
