              Nothing. I moved out after one night. Hated the hotel. It was like a concrete jungle. Tried to cancel but I wasnt able and so got no refund.

              Terrible sterile concrete jungle of a hotel. No atmoshphe. Absolutely terrible. Wont go back again. Moved out after first night of a 3 night stay. Got no refund!!!!!

              Right next to the new Gautrain for the best airport connection, direct access to Sandton shopping, and everything about the service just perfect

              6.2

              The Hotel is ok, but it cannot be classified as 5 star luxurious hotel. It is a very good place to stay without excess. Staff is friendly and helpful, but the room was small and a bit too much fake italian style. Location is excellent right on Mandela Square. It is anyhow way overpriced.

            • Couple
              7.0

              The rooms are very good and the restaurant as well. Great location and direct access to the shopping center.

              Parking system is terrible and staff completely clueless on how to handle it.

            • Single
              9.6

              I loved the close proximity to the shops and amenities as I had no car whilst in Johannesburg and I found everything within easy reach!

              perhaps the only thing I did not like was the price, but I do realise it was a top class hotel. lol

              The friendliness of the staff and their ability to personalise the experience.

              My room was next to the noisy service exit. I was woken up at regular intervals from 4am onwards due to staff moving equipment through the service exit (Room 1025).
