Stayed here yesterday and today. The hotel lacks the grandeur of a Five Star hotel but nevertheless provides services like any great hotel of Five Star status - good room, good bed, great breakfast and WIFI worked with no problems. Staff are helpful and friendly. Munir D

After we missed our flight to New York, we were stuck in Joburg for another 24 hours and needed a last minute hotel. We chose the Radisson Blu in Sandton for its proximity to the Gautrain and Nelson Mandela Square. The price was very reasonable, and they were great to let us leave our luggage with them for the day...

I spent 3 days in Radisson. After a bad start, the manager decided to upgrade me. Rooms are not that big but very well organized. Close to one of the major mall, people who like to go shopping will be happy. Breakfast is nice with food for everyone. Bar is also very ok even if service is not optimal. Without...

If you need a well-located base in Sandton, this is a very good choice. The staff are friendly and my standard room was amply spacious and well-appointed. The bathroom was squeaky clean and had a walk-in shower. I enjoyed a dinner in the restaurant and a lunch on the pool terrace. Breakfast included a good choice of fresh fruit, juices,...

The most significant point has to be the location - directly opposite the station. Rooms, facilities etc. are what you would expect. I had reason to use the laundry service (thanks to the BA cabin crew member who deposited a full glass of red wine over me on the flight out) - which was excellent (the laundry service, not the...

I have stayed here dozens of times the last few years. In the last few months, prices have increased rapidly. It's a nice hotel, but R40 for a coke, R60 a beer, is a bit outrageous for South Africa, even Sandton. Tray charges ensure R55 for a coffee to be brought to your room. Also, the lights in the rooms...

Enjoyed staying here. The hotel is in the best location, directly opposite the Gautrain station. This makes getting to and from both the airport and Central Johannesburg or Pretoria a breeze.
