This was my second stay at the Radisson Blu, Gautrain, and again I have had a pleasant stay.
The linen and matress was great ensuring I got a good night's rest. The towels were of good quality, however, the water pressure in the shower unfortunately was too weak for my liking. The Nespresso machine in the room was very welcome, pity it didn't work and that I had to follow up twice before it was replaced. Breakfast was good. As per my previous visit, the wifi was sporadic which is disappointing - especially in a business hotel. It should not be a mission to get connected.
I have sent a mail to reception two days before arrival and a follow up the day before arrival requesting a quiet room on a high floor away from the lifts. I have still not had any response. Nothing was noted on the system upon arrival, however, a suitable room was allocated upon request. Unfortunately I did not have my Club Carlson membership number with me and the receptionist was unable to help me look for it. I was told to look for it myself on the net and can then bring it to reception to be added to my booking... I did not think that was very helpful or professional.
Minus the minor gripes and service failures, I like this hotel and will stay here again.
