Stayed there recently when I attended an exhibition in Johannesburg.
Nice business hotel, Rooms are comfortably big enough for my colleague & myself.
Hotel had the normal 3 pin & 2 pin wall plugs at the study table which I felt was really good so I did not need an adaptor. In-room electronic safe was also provided. Good variety of tv programmes so I could watch TV in my limited free time.
They also had a comfortable lobby which we could sit down and discuss work with our laptops or at the lazy corner where they had ample seating.
Service at the conceirge was very friendly & helpful. They were always ready to answer your questions or get you a taxi.
The hotel also had someone who was standing by the lobby lift (presumably to deter unwanted "guests"). We all know that it could be a little unsafe in South Africa at times, but generally, Sandton is safe.
Did not use the Skye Bar nor the business centre so I cannot comment.
However, i felt that wifi could be provided free in the rooms (being a business hotel) since the rates are quite steep actually.
Breakfast was sumptous but a bit pricy (again).
Had an incident when i was in the shower late at night (about 1am) when the water supply stopped suddenly. I was stranded in the shower for about 15 minutes with soap all over my body. Fortunately the water supply came back on and i quickly finished my bath.
Barring that incident, it was a pleasant stay.
