Be careful - there are two Michelangelo hotels in Sandton. This review is for the Michelangelo hotel, not the Michelangelo Towers which is different. This turned out to be a fantastic hotel choice, even if it was for just one night in Johannesburg. The hotel is in a great location. It’s a short 100 metre walk from from the Gautrain...

The room was spacious, the staff nice, the hotel is safe, I liked breakfast, there is a nice evening bar to get a range of cocktails (tip: get the drink served by one of the cocktail masters, not all barmen have this 'degree'). The hotel is next to Nelson...

This is possibly the most service oriented hotel I have ever stayed at. Responsive, fast, polite, nothing was too much. My room was very comfortable with a lovely bottle of wine waiting for us. The hotel decor is a little too "grand" for my tastes (think Vegas) but the quality is undeniable. Breakfast service was great and the hotel is...

After an fabulous trip to South Africa my report would not be complete with out pointing out the excellent service of Archie Christodoulides, the super concierge at the Michelangelo Hotel in Sandown, South Africa. Archie went above and beyond the call of duty to make my stay truly memorable. Cheers to Archie!
