Burgers Park Hotel
Ranked #30 of 74 Hotels in Pretoria
Reviewed 10 April 2013

I understand that this hotel is frequently used by the government to host seminars. The lobby is very nicely decorated with African themes. Although I gave the hotel itself three stars, I would give the conference service five. There were not that many comments in Tripadvisor at the time of this review, so I tried my best to give the information I would have liked to know. I even uploaded some pictures, which I normally do not do.

Location: the hotel is next to "Burger Park" in the outskirts of Pretoria. It is very well located in case you need to work downtown or visit government offices, but I would definitively choose a different hotel for tourism. The hotel is close to some shopping centres during the day, but there are not many options nearby for dinning and I would definitively not recommend walking in the area during the night. However, it is possible to get a taxi to Brooklyn mall, where some of the nice restaurants are grouped. The Union buildings, one of the main tourist attractions in Pretoria, are not particularly close (about 30 minutes walking distance).

The rooms: mine had good space and had all the amenities you normally enjoy in this kind of hotels, but it felt a bit old and tired (in particular the bathroom). Walls are thin, so you may hear noise from the adjacent rooms. The air-conditioning didn't cool much, but the area is relatively calm during the night, so I enjoyed opening the window.

Breakfast: Lots of variety and food quality was very good. I liked, in particular, the big availability of fruits and, to my taste, the outstanding caramelized onions.

Service: Excellent. All employees I dealt with were quick to help and always with a smile.

Conference services: my company organized an event and we were very happy with it. They are clearly used to dealing with large groups and complex requests. Absolutely no complaints in this respect.

A humble hotel in a not so nice area, yet from the receptionist tot he lady who cleans the room, there is graciousness and humility. The staff go out of their way to accomodate thier guests and call you a family member. I have styaed there about 6 tiomes- -2 times this year and the staff remember me.. The menu i the week is ok, the staff who chat to you during dinner make up for the food. I visist alone for work and feel safe to stay there. The rooms are clean, linen absolutely clean.. try the family Hotel-- you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: 7th floor - best view- least noise.

This was definitely a good choice - a nicely located hotel with friendly staff and clean rooms. I was happy with the breakfast, the selection was good and it varied a bit every morning, and there were plenty of fresh fruits. The restaurant was somewhat expensive compared to the price level in the city, but the food was excellent. During my stay the hotel was full of young, noisy people having party every evening, which revealed that the walls were quite thin... Nevertheless, my sleep was not disturbed, so in all I was very satisfied with my experince.

Room Tip: Just remember to ask for a non-smoking room, if you are not a smoker...

In Pretoria CBD, this is a good location to stay for business. I liked the interiors although it may need refurbishing. The service was good. The restaurant food wasn't much variety but tasted good.

Room Tip: 南向きの部屋は、繁華街が近いせいか、夕方から騒々しくなります。北向きの方が静かだと思います。因みに南半球ですので、太陽は北側を通ります。
