We wanted to spend a night in Sandton to avoid having to drive after dinner, and found that the Balalaika offers reasonable value for bed and breakfast. Because of the renovations to the Village Walk centre next door, it was difficult to find the parking area, and one had to enter the hotel through the service entrance, which was disconcerting, and then it was difficult to find reception once inside!
However, once checked in we were assisted with luggage to the room, and the room swapped without complaint when we discovered that the fan made an incessant noise.
Accommodation was comfortable, and would be ideal for a visiting business person, with a desk and internet connectivity supplied, as well as TV.
Breakfast was as expected from a large international hotel.
