“Great boutique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

Visiting Johannesburg on business and this is a great hotel to stay at. The hotel is fantastic from the lobby staff consistently calling the lift as you approach through to the lovely quality of the rooms and the way that they're laid out making everything feel personalised, a real change from the standard corporate hotels. Better price than many of the other 5 start hotels in the area.

Slightly annoying that my car wasn't at the airport to meet me but it was dealt with well by one of their other drivers at the airport organising an alternate car and the manager being at the hotel entrance when I arrived to greet me and apologise. I'm a firm believer that mistakes will happen but it's how they're dealt with that matters.

Really enjoying my stay and will definitely visit the next time I'm here.

I regularly travel to Joburg on business and always stay in Sandton. Although this is actually my second favourite hotel in the area (The Gautrain hotel wins by virtue of it's proximity to the station) it is the one I usually stay at.

Whilst the decor is a little "out there" it has grown on me over time.

The breakfasts here are very good, but I have never eaten in their restaurant in the evening.

The staff at the Da Vinci Hotel were all lovely - I did not have a bad experience. It just felt industrial; there was no personal touch. I felt completely safe and the turn-down service in the rooms was quite lovely. There is a lot of action in Nelson Mandela square and I would most-likely stay here again when I am in the area.

The location in Nelson Mandela Square makes for high traffic. The entry into the hotel includes accessing two lobby areas. The continental breakfast was just ok. And the staff weren't consistently enthusiastic to assist. The rooms were modern but not well designed. The shower leaked water under the glass door. Stay for the location but don't expect consistent service. Check out nearby options for better value and service.

Stayed at the DaVinci Hotel in August 2014 and it was outstanding! Hotel common areas and guest rooms very sophisticated yet comfortable. Staff very professional and accommodating. Convient location for dining if you chose not to eat at their restaurant. Only complaint was room was very noisy due to unrelated hotel construction.

Room Tip: avoid the street side

I spent a few nights at the DaVinci on a recent business trip. I chose it for its location attached to the mall, for easy access to restaurants at night as I was travelling solo. It was a lovely space and very convenient. A tad tricky to find the first time. The shuttle service within 1Km around sandton was very helpful for meetings or catching the Gautrain. While its very walkable to Gautrain, the cars saved some time, particularly useful on the weekends when trains are infrequent. Nice restaurant, though a la carte breakfast option was a tad slow in the room. Wifi free but a little weak - Wifi in the restaurant would have been nice.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights.
The hotel staffs were just too wonderful. To cap it all, on my 3rd night, I forgot to secure the safe vault knowing well that there would have been room services exercise before my wife and I return back to the hotel. I came back, met a well cleaned room with the vault wide opened but not a dime nor my valuables were missing.
I will always come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: We lodged in a standard double room and it was okay for a couple but a family.
