Reviewed 26 October 2013

Again with the help of Trip Advisor confirming that this was the No.1 in Sandton, I booked this hotel which is of the "leading Hotels of the World" and was pleased I did so. From the very beginging the service was perfect, from being collected at the airport, to my 2 day stay at the hotel, and then being brought back to the airport, Very good restaurants nearby and how nice to see the high bronze statue of Nelson Mandela on the square named after him at the location of the hotel
The service and food at breakfast was outstanding.

This was a very nice property with an excellent restaurant. The breakfast buffet was impressive including raw honeycomb. Our room was spacious and had all the amenities we needed. The whole hotel was elegant yet friendly. It had a very nice atrium with a bar and a separate bar/lounge and restaurant. There was an ATM. We were there as part of a tour and the hotel provided good service for our group in the restaurant.

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights early in October during touring visit with a large group. Especially liked the service in restaurant at breakfast, the waiters are very attentive and friendly without being intrusive and there is plenty of choice to satisfy the biggest appetite. Overlooks Nelson Mandela Square and has shops and restaurants reached from escalators in the hotel so you don't have to travel far to shop or eat. Also very central to visit other places in and around Jo'burg.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Nelson Mandela Square - there's a bit of noise because it's a buz...

We stayed for a night and found it lovely
It is ideally situated in Nelson Mandela square in the vicinity of great dining and shopping malls

The hotel decor and the rooms are very chic and nicely decorated

The breakfast was luxurious to say the least with a wife variety buffet

Stayed: September 2013, travelled as a couple

Excellent location. High quality hotel, even if a bit "too much" to my taste: gold stuff is nice; gold everywhere is a bit too much... Very good restaurant, even if it cannot compare to the fantastic steak house on Mandela square next door. Good indoor pool. Small but functional gym. Friendly staff, in particular the person at reception who seems to advise customers in as many languages as one might think about. Very good business hotel, in essence. Been there many times, and will probably do it again when I have to be in Johannesburg.

After spending 3 nights at a tree house, coming to this palace was a treat. Service was excellent. Pictures of the lobby shows a humongous opulent place, but there is still a cozy feeling. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choices even fresh raw honeycomb. The nicely heated indoor pool was relaxing. Since this hotel is attached to the shopping mall, one can shop till you drop and have plenty of choices in restaurants, cafés and fast food. We were supposed to stay only one night, but we end up staying 3 more nights since we had to go to the American Consulate that was conveniently located across the mall.

My wife and I spent two nights at this fabulous hotel in Johannesburg adjacent to Mandela Square. The staff is courteous, friendly, and highly, service oriented. Breakfast is a smorgasbord of wonderful choices with an attentive wait staff. The hotel is adjacent to a monstrous shopping mall of shops ranging fron GAP to Gucci. My wife could not get enough time to visit everything this mall had to offer. Many restaurants within the Square and no need to venture very far away from a safe and friendly environment.
