Positive Reviews

A good location

The location of the hotel is convenient enough. Guests are happy to be within proximity of Sandton Mall, where they can shop until they drop. They like that they can eat out hassle-free, too, as a number of eateries are only a stone’s throw away. Moreover, guests suggest that the surrounding area is safe, considering the hotel sits a block from the well-guarded American Embassy.

Rooms are clean and spacious

Featuring clean rooms, the guest house makes for a comfortable stay away from home, which is a delight for guests. Patrons also report enjoying the generous space in these accommodations: it’s no big deal spreading out or stowing extra luggage.

Clap for staff members

Guests report that staff members make their stays memorable. They are friendly and helpful, ensuring a comfortable stay for them. They are especially good at offering a reliable room service, which guests say is availed 24 hours a day.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast issues

Most guests note that breakfast on this premises is relatively costly, which can be unfriendly to their pockets. That’s not all, as this first meal of the day not only lacks in variety, but also the same options are served every day which is something guests find to be monotonous.
