Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.

Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.

My arrival experience: Quick check-in. No escort to the room.

What I loved: The design and the smoke-free environment.

What about the service: It was hit and miss. Some staff are truly great, while others need more training. I was disappointed with the breakfast buffet as it was far below the other standards of this great hotel. The complimentary shuttle to Nelson Mandela Square and the Sandton Gautrain station is very nice and runs every 15 minutes.

What about the rooms: Beautiful contemporary rooms. Mine had a comfortable bed, two flatscreen Tv’s, freestanding bathtub, double sink and a large separate rainshower. The bathroom has Molton Brown amenities and the room were better than at similar business hotels.

Number of rooms: 281.


Type of property: Johannesburg, South Africa.

Location: Johannesburg, South Africa.

Facilities: Swimming pool, spa, gym with out-dated facilities and business/meeting facilities. I am surprised this is only ranked as a 4-star hotel. It is better than many 5-star hotels in both service, accommodation and facilities.

Complimentary internet: Yes, unlimited and quite fast.

My overall impression: Great experience. A lovely business hotel that exceeded my expectations. I would love to stay here again.
