Reviewed 24 May 2016

I stayed at this hotel several times. This is my hotel of choice whenever I travel to Pretoria. I like the service and hotel and food prices. The rooms are smart. Staff is so friendly. As security is a big issue in South Africa, don't walk outside the hotel at night with valuables.

There has been a deliberate move to improve in the area of food, furniture and service delivery since our last visit in October 2015. We were delighted to note that our preferred floor (14th) did not have smokers as opposed to our previous visit in December 2014.

I frequent this hotel as part of my work in Pretoria. Hotel224 have definitely improved all round. Staff are ALL friendlier, the food is fantastic, rooms clean and well-maintained and I can only attribute this to good management. Thank you again! Best views of the Union Buildings especially at night are from the North East corner.

I stayed here for four nights on a business trip, attending a conference elsewhere in the city. Initial impressions were not promising as my reservation, made on my behalf, was somehow unretrievable in their booking system, even though other colleagues' reservations for the same event made by the same person were fine. Anyway, I finally got a room on the...

Good Afternoon Cibling Thank you for your review.

I previously gave Hotel 224 a good rating on TripAdvisor.

224 was the first hotel we saw in our trip in SA. Very kind staff who helped us kindly while checking in. Very small parking spaces but luckily we had a small car. The breakfast was good. And very nice that there was air conditioning because of the heat.

“my concern as an EAP practitioner is to request that you create some form of securing on your windows especially on the higher levels with reasons being, it makes it very much possible for a suicidal client to execute his or her act at your institution. Tea lover's like my self feel that the tea, sugar and milk provide in your rooms are very much little, please do something about it. other than that I love your place and I have been a client at your place for many years and will continue to do so.”
