Radisson Blu Hotel Sandton, Johannesburg
Ranked #14 of 47 Hotels in Sandton
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Nicely located close to Sandton Mall, I think of this as a great gym (three floors, pool, running track....) with an adjacent hotel, so if you need to have a solid workout, this is my favorite hotel in Sandton. The hotel is very correct, large rooms, great breakfast, good service, but not necessarily charming or lively.

Room Tip: High up gives a beautiful view of Sandton and all the way to CBD in Joburg

check in staff are rude and unhelpful.... not the best welcome arriving at hotel a first thing in the morning after a long night on a plane.
Hotel itself has good security in that you cannot access rooms without a room key. However the majority of rooms look out over the atrium (noisy sports bar) and despiet the check staff weakly trying to reassure you that ''noise doesn't trivel pest the fourteenth floor'' (south African dialect) believe me IT DOES!
Happy hour is a nice touch and if the bar staff served guests in the final ten minutes of happy hour instead of standing there as a talking clock telling you the time and that happy hour ends soon there wouldn't be the confusion and grief when you are then told that 'happy is now over' and that you didn't get your drinks order in in time...... This is not a constructive approach.
Food and service in the restaurant is ok - mediocre with service being quite slow. The 'manana' approach to service appears to be in employment here.
I would stay here again based the fact that security is good, the rooms are comfortable, clean but not quiet. Also the step up into the bathroom is a hazard!
I was offered ear plugs at check in with my room key - never a good sign really.

Room Tip: request a room away from the lifts and the atrium.

A good functional hotel. Well located with a convenient shuttle to the Sandton City and Mandela Square attractions which are also perfectly walkable in the day time. The Gautrain station is also an easy walk which was convenient to do a day trip to Pretoria. A nice park across the road too. Food and drink is reasonably priced and nice enough although a single restaurant limits choice. The lift arrangements are very secure but otherwise a bit of a performance. Reception on the 13th floor has to be an unusual feature compared to anywhere!

Im here on business, I travel to Jburg once a month and will never use this hotel again.
The room advertises wifi, yet after I am checked in and unpacked there is a handwritten note in the room: "wifi doesn't work in this room". Why was I not told on check in? Impossible for a business stay.
The shower drain is blocked and floods the bathroom floor after a 2 minute shower.
The hire car company drivers got lost, leaving me late for meetings while driving circles. My destination was not uncommon. I called back to the hotel while we were lost on the road and no one was able to help or direct the driver.
Only 1 treadmill in the gym works, with people there before work, it's impossible to use the equipment.
All in all this hotel isn't suitable for a business trip when you need efficient and convenient service.

A modery city-centre hotel with large,spacious rooms and good facilities. Food and cleanliness were excellent and all staff very friendly and helpful. Overlooked Mushroom Park, which was a delightful space in which to walk.
