Booked a spa stay with Indaba sometime in advance of our stay, we had stayed here before and had a very pleasant stay. The package included a suite. On the day of our arrival after a long flight and torrential rain in Johannesburg, we arrived at the hotel to be told that there was no suite and that they had...

Stayed at this hotel on the first night of a tour of S Africa. The hotel is tired and needs a facelift. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food in the Chefs Boma is no more than average. Our worst experience however, which we did not realise until we had moved on up country, was that my wife's jewellery...

Thank you for taking the time to complete a Trip Advisor Review as all guest feedback is appreciated. The incident reported of the alleged jewelry missing from your room was indeed unfortunate, but from my understanding this matter was only brought to the attention of our Operations Manager, Charles Drewe, 2 weeks after your departure from the Indaba Hotel.

This hotel is ideal for groups or possibly for business in the Fourways area . I would not recommend it for holiday makers visiting Johannesburg unless you are using Lansaria airport or visiting the Cradle of Humankind. the hotel is very large and my room was a drive away! The room itself was comfortable and fully functioning with wifi and...

Stayed here overnight as we had a conference happening at the hotel. I must be honest the rooms are a rather old style, and I simply stayed over as the traffic to get to and from the hotel during peak hour would just have been too much of a nightmare. The location is ok, but as I said traffic in...

We received a warm welcome from Portia at the Reception Desk, enjoyed our nicely lay-out room but the highlight was our dinner at the Boma Restaurant. Highly recommended. If you go out for some activities, book your dinner at the Boma beforehand. Probably the best restaurant meal available in Johannesburg! Staff and Management very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

A group from our work recently had a conference at the hotel. The rooms were dirty and not serviced properly. The mattresses have bed bugs and there are cockroaches everywhere. I will never visit this establishment again. The food was terrible and I got the impression that the meals were recycled each day. Not a pleasant experience at all.

Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Joberg, Indaba is kind of a self contained unit. Clean rooms (didn't see rats or cockroaches like other posters said), fantastic breakfast buffet........kept me full till dinner time. Monte Casino is a 5-10 taxi ride away. DO NOT WALK THERE! Take a taxi. All in all, I enjoyed my stay at Indaba...
