Pleasantly surprised by this Hotel (former Holiday Inn).
Booked the Superior room. Clean and functional but a bit sparse. Difference with standard room was bedding. Quality of bedding, pillows etc, was really good.
The room lacked a fridge but I asked for one. Was brought in within minutes. Staff is pleasent and cordial.
Common areas nice especially the bar. The bar staff is good and the prices and service excellent. The restaurant is adequate.
Location in downtown Pretoria close to government buildings. When compared to Sheraton I like that this hotel is in the middle of a commercial area -- albeit not an attractive one. Just around the corner there is a shopping arcade with a Shoprite supermarket. So you can get some fruits, drinks and the like to have in the room. Walking in the day is oK.
All together, Pretoria choices are limited and not very good. I don't like the Sheraton and often stay in guesthouses. This is really a good place to consider, especially if you don't want to be at a place that is too isolated.
