Me and a couple of friends stayed at the Holiday Inn Sandton for two nights. Ok the very first night we noticed that the A/C in our room was not cooling. Since we were very tired from all the traveling, we fell asleep, deciding to raise the issue with the hotel the next morning.

Stayed here for the first time- it’s a budget hotel but in the higher end compared to Garden Court near Maude Street. Extremely comfortable beds and very large rooms, with functional bathrooms. There is limited vistas/views from rooms. Breakfast was average and cannot match

I can only respond to the question related to nearby restaurants. Sandton this plenty of restaurants in walking vicinity. However, you may want to check with the hotel for areas that are safer than others at night

Is there a spa or massage facility near the hotel?
Hello, please forgive my delayed response. I have never had the opportunity to use spa facilities but I know there is a nice one located nearby. I believe it might also be possible to arrange for a massage therapist to make an appointment on-site in the hotel. I am absolutely confident that the staff at Holiday Inn Sandton will help you arrange whatever you request.
