My partner and I are currently staying in this hotel. We arrived as a gay couple, having booked a double room. On arrival we were however allocated a twin without being given any choice, obviously because the staff aren't trained to understand that two men might conceivably want to share a bed. We had to go do back down to... More

I have stayed twice, both times on business. The hotel is modern, clean and centrally located with easy access to/from the Gautrain. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed, food is plentiful and well cooked and the staff are friendly and helpful. The roof terrace is a great place for a sundowner with a fine view of the Jozi skyline. A minor... More

This was the first time I stayed at this hotel, and what an eye opener it was. So conveniently situated, literally across the road from the Gautrain station, so close to Sandton City, with friendly efficient staff, modern comfortable rooms with everything you could need, 24 hour slick room service, and all at a very affordable rate. I will be... More

Great Place to visit for business and leisure, walking distance from Gautrain Station, modern and world class, Car rental facility on site, they have free transport/shuttle that takes you everywhere you want to go. Great restaurant and variety of food, professional service. Right at the heart of Sandton with best views. International standard. Highly recommended

I had a great stay at the Radisson, with outdoor bar and great service. The breakfast was exquisite. Although it seems to be part of a new development most of the shops on the basement had no tenants. The pool was also quiet small in view.The staff was very very frownsly and helpful. Would def return!! :-)

We loved staying here. It is over the road from the Gautrain from the airport. It's also only a few hundred metres from Nelson Mandela square. The decor of the hotel is vibrant and the lobby has a lovely modern feel. The room was quite spacious and an interesting bathroom - you could stand in the shower while watching TV.... More

Nice property, but had to wait a lot to be in! I did a request in advance and just before arrival, after overnight flight we were had to wait for 5 hrs to be in! Being Silver Elite cc members, no recognition appeared. Hotel is nice, service is slow, very slow, sometimes nothing about it!
