We had arranged a pick up from the airport, we were very impressed with the professional service of the driver. Johannesburg can be quite daunting but we felt safe and secure in the vehicle and on arrival to the Monarch we were met by more friendly faces. The hotel is quaint and inviting its small being a boutique hotel but the grandeur of the rooms for the price its well worth the 30 minute trip from the airport. From the King size beds to the spacious well appointed bathroom, and that bath is just the place to soak after 14 hours of flying or being on safari for 10 days. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Johannesburg.
