Reviewed 26 June 2014

Really enjoyed my stay at the Michelangelo. Amazing rooms and very central to everything. Would recommend it to business people as it is within walking distance of the Gautrain and the ICC in sandton JHB

Room Tip: Rooms have mini bar that is very expensive . Rather walk down to the square and enjoy the vibe

Thank you for a ensuring our recent stay in Joburg was a memorable one.
What made the stay so comfortable apart from the obvious luxurious surrounds and amenities was most definitely the level of service shown to us by the staff.
Every point of contact with the staff at the Michelangelo exceeded our expectations.
From Elmarie in reservations to the team in valet, Ashley, Doreen and the team on the front desk to the attentive housekeeping staff who could not do enough to ensure we had a truly special stay.
If only all hotels not only in Joburg but worldwide could have such genuinely friendly, attentive and professionally trained staff.
We thank you and will continue to recommend this property to anyone who needs to stay in Joburg.

We stayed here for one night during a long layover between travel from Cape Town to Kruger. The hotel is very nice and conveniently located with direct access to a shopping mall. Hotel bar and restaurant for breakfast buffet were nice with good service. Room was clean and very comfortable. We were originally given a room overlooking Mandela Square but it was a bit noisy so we switched to a room with a city view. Since we only had one night, we didn't have much time to explore the city, so it was nice to be at this hotel which was close to the square and shopping.

Great luxury hotel that is a haven of peace and safety in a busy city.

Welcome was good with drinks provided on arrival, the lifts in the lobby and through the hotel show off the luxurious interior. The rooms were ok - slightly functional rather than the splendour the building could suggest. Breakfast was great and the bar was good. We didn't have time to use the spa or eat in the restaurant as we were on a flying visit.

Location is great if you want to shop In sandton mall and also very easy to get to by the Gautrain from the airport - so fantastic for first time visitors to Johannesburg as an intro to help get their bearings.

Overall, great luxurious base, slightly business orientated rather than holiday, but then I guess that is the majority of visitors to Johannesburg who are there more than just as a stepping stone to he rest of South Africa. Would definitely return.

My husband needed to see a doctor during our stay. The concierge was wonderful. A doctor called us back within 5 minutes and came to our room within an hour with all the meds my husband needed based on our phone conversation. The Hotel was elegant and the Restaurant was outstanding!
