About Hotel Morning Star Express

Featuring 125 modern rooms and business facilities, Hotel Morning Star Express is located in the heart of Pretoria, a city known for the beautiful violet-blooming Jacaranda trees that line the streets.

The snug double, triple and family rooms offer a sleek décor and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. Creature comforts include air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and a tea/coffee station. There’s also a small wall-mounted television showing satellite channels.

Two fully equipped conference rooms provide space for up to 100 attendees in each. Hotel Morning Star Express also provides free parking and laundry services are available for an extra fee.

An English breakfast starts the day and the two on-site restaurants serve dinner buffets which showcase South African cuisine. The Lounge Bar offers a selection of spirits, wines and beers to enjoy.

Around ten minutes by car, the impressive Voortrekker Monument provides stunning views over the city. Just outside the hotel is a bus-stop with connecting Gautrain services for onward travel to Johannesburg.

Positive Reviews

A friendly service

One of the stand-out features of the hotel is the great service it provides. Guests are very content with the way they are dealt with and appreciate all the advice they receive and friendliness displayed by the staff members.

Well-cleaned accommodation

The housekeeping staff members receive a pat on the back for the way they keep the rooms and public areas clean and tidy. Guests appreciate this high level of cleanliness and would choose to come back here in the future.

Convenient location in central Pretoria

The hotel’s location provides guests with easy access to the nearby business and government districts in Pretoria. They also welcome the close proximity of the Gautrain bus which is ideal for travel to Johannesburg.

Negative Reviews

Noisy at times

Guests mention being able to hear noise from other guests such as loud talking emanating from the corridors. This is particularly annoying when it happens during the night and interrupts guests’ sleep.

Showers could be improved

It seems that the en-suite showers don’t provide the best shower experience. Guests report that the showers are without a head which results in the water flow not being as relaxing as it could be. Guests would like to see this issue addressed.

Small rooms

While the accommodation here is generally found to be comfortable, the size of the rooms doesn’t always meet guests’ expectations. They find the rooms quite small and this isn’t ideal when a few people are sharing the space.
