Stayed for 2 nights. The room was very large and comfortable. The bathroom itself is in the size of a complete room in London including a shower, a bathtub, a toilet and a large sink - very comfortable (the water pressure was one of the highest i ever had in a hotel). The Nespresso machine in the room definitely helped...

Whenever I go back to Johannesburg South Africa, I will look no further than this hotel. The room was very clean and spacious, the staff were very friendly and hospitable, the food was actually tasty (for room service). Plus the fact that it's connected to the mall made it very convenient.

Stayed here for 5nights for a conference in the sandton ICC. Very convenient as the skywalk connects the two venues within 3minutes. The bed was soft and shower had good waterpressure. Also Nespresso machine in room. However dont think the hotel deserves 5stars: 1. The waiting is a bit sluggish. 2. Room service is slow and overpriced. 3. The scrambled...
