Had a two day stopover and decided to sample this five star rated hotel. Firstly, the location is great with a short shuttle to Sandton City and the Gautrain stations. The hotel reception staff and restaurant staff were also quite friendly. However, the hotel itself is not really five stars. As a frequent traveler I would say that this was more likely a three star hotel. The room was small (the bed took up most of the space) with no insulation from the corridor. The maintenance staff are quite noisy and this echo's through the large gaps in the door. There was no information in the room (contact no's, local information etc) as you would typically find and the bar fridge had a half filled jug of water. The experience felt a bit sterile.
For the cost per night and the marketed rating, I would not recommend this hotel.
