I stayed here for the past 12 nights, was checked into an apartment on level 5 or 6 but after 24hrs asked to be moved as there were a number of issues with stuff not working as well as the apartment being generally worn. SHower head was also awful, barely lets out water to wash your hair, and the floor to the shower is broken tiles set into cement. Yuk. There was a LOT of traffic noise on this level, as the apartment is set on the corner of 2 very busy roads. Traffic noise commences around 6am for a good 12 hrs Mon - Fri.
Staff moved me 24hrs later into an apartment on the 11th floor (highest floor is 12th), that was of a much nicer fresher standard. However Water pressure was really poor, and the shower floor was still broken tiles set into cement. The apartment was much nicer and cleaner than the one on the lower level and a LOT quieter in terms of traffic noise. Kitchen is well-stocked so you can happily cook if you want to. The cleaner comes Mon - Fri and washes dishes, does laundry and irons, all for no additional fee, major bonus.
Balcony was tiny, could barely fit one single chair, but the view was quite pleasant overlooking other apartment blocks set into green leafy Sandton.
At no time during the 12 days was I able to connect to the Internet, the wireless signal was all over the place and completely unstable, which caused me some issues as I was in JHB on a work trip.
The proximity to shops/supermarkets/restaurants etc is great, you can get to most places you need in 10 mins on foot. Onsite parking is available and secure.
The staff were the real highlight of this place, especially Shaii the reservations lady, she went over and above to try to assist me, thank you very much. Given my mixed feelings on this one am not sure I would return.
