Great decor in this hotel. The rooms are especially interesting with different material used for the walls, zebra skins mixed with gold furniture yet tastefully done so. If you want a change to your normal everyday hotel then this would be a great place to visit. Centrally situated in johannesburg also helps with easy access to the highways and attractions...

This hotel is brilliant. The rooms are spacious modern and clean. The beds are what I come expect from protea and the Marriott. The location is brilliant and I did my research and I never did not feel not safe in Melrose. There are a lot of restaurants to chose from for all different tastes and they do breakfast. At...

The African Pride in Melrose Arch Johannesburg is truly a 5 star property. Although the rooms could use a little TLC the friendly staff, location and service more than make up for this. The breakfast buffet could hold its own in Vegas and if you are paying with Dollars it is a steal.

The hotel is perfectly located as you have a lot of shops, restaurants and bars in this area and you can also walk around freely at night without having to feel unsafe. Rooms were modern, clean and nice, but a bit smaller compared to other hotels of this category. Unfortunately, the service was dismal, staff was neither friendly nor very...

What a great hotel. Everything is of the highest quality and the attention to detail with the furnishings is wonderful - the safe in the room for instance is behind a painting. The food was fantastic in the restaurant and very reasonably priced and the staff were very helpful an attentive. The location is about 20 mins from the centre...

Great rooms, fantastic staff, AMAZING breakfast!!! It's location makes out a real gem. Fantastic for any occasion. Upgrading to deluxe room is also worth the while. But still a great spot to stay at regardless.

The staff and management at African Pride were quick to respond to my initial request for a shuttle / driver from the airport. Despite it being December 25th at 11:00pm, our driver Patson was there waiting for us. I can't say enough about him, he was extremely polite, professional and engaging in conversation.

We can never fault African Pride Melrose As Marriott Elite members we received sparkling wine on arrival and a little gift in the room 😀 Nice rooms, etc (the hotel does the best breakfast in all of Johannesburg!!!) The lady at reception also helped us find a restaurant for New Years eve (thanks a million)

Whilst the hotel itself did not disappoint, there were a couple of downfalls in the service and pool facilities. The positives: great location, lovely rooms, accommodating front of house staff, cool and swanky decor. The negatives mainly lie within the pool area: With only 6 sun beds available, if you are looking for a hotel to relax by the pool...
