        The entire hotel staff was very courteous, polite and helpful. Room was spacious and comfortable.

        Breakfast was at an additional cost. It should be included in the tariff. Internet was chargeable. It should be free of cost for the guests.

      • Older travelers

        Excellent location, next to the guatrain station and sandton city shopping centre. Helpful staff and BMW courtesy car lift to the station!!

        They were having problems with the water whilst I stayed, hopefully only a blip!!

      • Couple
        8.8

        The staff is very helpful. I was travelling in honeymoon and they do their best for our satisfation. The room was perfect (executive suite). Thank you.

        The only downside is the lack of tourist service as citytour in Johannesburgo. The packages avalailable at hotel were pricy. Its a big city and the distance to attraction and the lack of public transportation force you to take a taxi, which is very expensive. Sandton is a business area only, although maybe one of the best.

      • Older travelers

        It appears that hotel accounting unit is not well versed in use of computers. They charged my credit card twice. When I pointed out to them, they took almost 2-3 days to sort out and refund the duplicate charge!

        10.0

        Although I was there for such a short time it was great. The staff where particularly curteous and friendly, Rooms where clean and comfortable and the shower room neat compact and well designed.The lobby was so spacious and welcoming

      • Older travelers

        Excellent dinner and breakfast and very friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable rooms

        Mid-week rate is expensive but comparable to similar alternatives

        Excellent restaurant dinner, friendly staff, very comfortable bed

        A little far from everywhere but hotel has a shuttle to nearby shops

        helpfulness and friendliness of staff and senior management

        i had only positive experience with the holiday inn sandton hotel and cannot complain on a single thing

        Location was convinient- in the heart of Sandton, with Nelson Mandela Square and other shopping malls, at a walking distance. However, check-in and check-out services could be made more prompt

        Breakfast was not included in the room rate!!

      • Single

        Nice Hotel, Good location

        Restaurant cheerless, 30 tables, 3 occupied

      • Single
        9.6

        The overall service was great (sometimes the service can feel forced in africa, however, this was genuine and welcoming), the bed and pillows perfect and the rooftop bar and pool was immaculate. I was surprised by the luxury of the hotel as I had originally thought of holidays inn as an average 3 star hotel, but this was exquisite and quite luxurious.

        Small things, the key cards were not always functioning on the first go (a issue they are fixing at the moment), and the water took a while to get warm. But again small issues that really didnt affect the overall stay.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        I liked the location best. Sandton is a safe area to stay.

        I had several misunderstandings with the concierge desk. It was un fortunate.

      • Single
        7.0

        Massively overpriced for things like breakfast ( I could get the same breakfast in the adjacent mall for less than half the price!), Wi-Fi access and meeting room costs are a total rip off. Worst of all they 'forgot' my reservation for a car to collect me from OR Tambo Airport which left me stranded for over an hour after flying in overnight.

      • Single
        10.0

        I thought the hotel was fantastic. It offered everything a traveller needs and I would most definitely stay again. My secretary booked your hotel.
