Glenalmond Hotel are nice apartments in the amazing city- Johannesburg. They are clean, modern, well equipped, spacious and great value. It is a 5 minute drive to a supermarket and a roughly 30 minute to Johannesburg airport. The staff in reception are friendly which makes the stay enjoyable!

The hotel had a spacious and well equipped apartment with covered parking in front of the apartment. The location has good security.
Breakfast was very good - huge portions.
There is a small pool but it was too cold to be used on my visit.

The Glenalmond Hotel was a really nice surprise. More an apartment than a hotel, the rooms are a good size with a twin bedroom, large bathroom, sitting area, dining and small kitchen, plus 2 toilets. Nice outdoor sitting area too. The kitchen area could do with a little TLC but everything else was clean and comfortable.
For the money, I would heartily recommend it as a more intimate and friendly place to stay compared to 4 and 5 star hotels in Sandton and half the cost. Plus it has the advantage to self cater if you wish.
The location is good, but possibly best to have your own transport as it is a bit far to walk to the shopping areas more than once.

Staff were all friendly and helpful. I was very pleased with my 4 days there.

This hotel is like a motel complex just outside the Sandton commercial area. The apartments are spacious although they only have small heaters so it will get cold in winter. Sandton City is close enough that you can walk but far enough that we only did it once. They do have an in house taxi service you can use which also does the airport transfers. Wifi is free at the reception area. Customer service was below average when I made email enquiries and on checking in however the hotel does the job of providing affordable apartment accommodation in Sandton.

On arriving at Glenalmond you get the overall impression that somebody who owned a block of flats decided it would make great accommodation for the 2010 World Cup football tournament. It is centrally located and easy to get to but it is not a hotel. It is apartments. That said if you are a family of more than three you will have lots of space as the two room units are very spacious and have well appointed kitchens and a nice veranda. The reception is manned 24 hours and they are very friendly if a little laid back. I asked for extra towels and this was no issue at all. There is a breakfast room (extra charge) but for evening meals you need to do take outs (menus provided for local restruants and they deliver). There is free, secure parking but you wont always get close to your room so if you have a lot of luggage request a lower floor unit near the reception. Our unit had a bath, shower and WC ensuite and a second shower and WC in the small corridor. This is a clean, cheap and cheerful way to stay in Sandton. It is good for families but would suite one or two people doing business in JNB on a budget for any period who are okay sharing a living space. You need to be cautious (especially at night) if walking up to the shops at Sandton City. The Gautrain is nearby, as are the main highways. It is twenty minutes drive from JNB OR Tambo airport and thirty five minutes from Lanseria airport.

Room Tip: Ask for lower floor rooms near the reception if you have a lot of bags

Perfectly located in the sandton area of Johannesburg but very quiet and peacefull . Place is ideal for long term stay and for those who want to enjoy self catering . Rooms are big but basic , no Rolf Benz furniture but comfortable bed and a bathroom with shower and separate bath , actually everything one should need even a stove micro etc... in the kitchen and lets not forget the nice terras. Place could even do better if free wifi would be available in hotel rooms and not only in public areas and dstv service would have more then just 8 channels . I have been told by management they are upgrading and working on both issues. Will surely be back soon and i hope i can then still receive rooms in this hotel for the very good rate i received during this visit. My compliments to entire staff of this hotel always friendly and always ready to help.

This was a gem!!!! Perfect location you can walk to Santon Mall from here, friendly staff, amazing rooms. Safe and secure felt at home with easy access to cabs, Gautrain.
We basically loved this hotel and recommend it for anyone.

Room Tip: Book early....and they have a sister hotel in Cape Town
