2/10 Poor

Probably the worst hotel room in Sandton
Literally terrible experience in a shabby and worn out and hugely overpriced room. I'm traveling on business and booked this property because I thought I might benefit from the lounge area and kitchen but the carpet was soaking wet from leakage from the patio, the sofa was beyond worn out, the wardrobe doors didn't slide / close properly and the bedroom still has a square CRT TV as if it's 1994! Really a terrible shambles of an experience, not to mention lifts not working on the day I arrived.

2/10 Poor

Good location, but not living up to expectations
Good location next to best shopping and dining. Good breakfast served at nearby hotel. Spacious rooms. Mold in the rooms, poor and not very friendly service, many technical issues, for example they could not make keys for our rooms and wifi worked only half of the time. Tried to charge extra for breakfast that was included. All in all, not what to expect from a 5 star hotel

Zentrale Lage beim Nelson Mandela Square
Um es vorwegzunehmen, die zahlreichen Restaurants am Square sind nicht so lärmig. Die laufenden Airconditioner allerdings schon. Das Apartment ist ein bisschen in die Jahre gekommen aber Preis/Leistung stimmt. Ideal für Familien. Im Herzen von Sandton City mit Zugang zu all den Shops und Restaurant. Nähe Gautrain. I
