Amazing stay

Posted Apr 24, 2014
Pros: The location of the hotel is good, safe and the decor is pleasing. great value for money and service was good, staffs went out of their way to assist.
Cons: the pick up/drop off to the airport was very expensive..more than the airport charges.the Gautrain (public train trnspt) is a much better alternative.
Location: there is free shuttle to the mandela sq and the train station which can link you to anywhere! very easy & convenient and much better price.
My room was located as per my request, room was in excellent condition. The staffs were extremely nice and helpful, very friendly and cheerful. no noise, great value for money, good breakfast and good service overall. there are free shuttle to the train station and mandela square which was very good to go around. Its better to use the train and the shuttle service if you want to go to the airport rather than hiring a cab.

Convenient and relaxing

We stayed here as a convenient location to Sandton central, shopping, and consulates. Easy walking distance to the shopping areas and dining locations.

Really close to offices & facilities in Sandton.

Not for comfort. Not for Fun. This place is not worth the money paying for it. I mean all u get is the chef making Omlettes for Breakfast in the morning smiling and rest all is a mess.

Home Away From Home

Posted Jan 23, 2014
Pros: The hotel is within easy reach from the train station. As you walk around, you feel very secure and at home.
Cons: Include a Bible in the rooms.
Location: The environment is very clean and very pleasing to look at. Its quiet and it suited me very well & near the train station & shopping centre.
I and my three children were privileged to stay at Holiday Inn Hotel, Rivonia Road. Much as we only spent one night, it was worth it. The hotel is beautiful. The hotel staff makes you feel you are in your own home country. They make you feel very comfortable. The breakfast Oh my God!!!! Am still salivating. My children loved the food and the care in the dining. The staff are very welcoming.

Less than 16 hours in Joburg

Posted Jan 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
I had a 14 hour layover in Joburg before flying domestic to Durban. I decided to skip the airport hotel and try to see something even it meant a 30 minute cab ride. The property puts it's stateside sister properties to shame. Beautiful decor. There was also close proximity to Nelson Mandela Square (either walking or hotel shuttle).

Great Location, average service

We asked for a pair of wine glass in our room and were told to get it by ourselves from the bar in the lobby or else they would charge us 100 ZAR for room service.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your positive rating of our hotel ! We regret to hear we dropped the ball when it comes the service offered in the lobby area as this is not the standard in place. Clearly, we will address this with the relevant team members. Warm regards, Nikola Jelenovic - Acting General Manager
