I had the worst check-in experience of my life. It took more than 1 hour! Apparently there was an issue between Hotel.com and Sandton systems and my reservation was missing one room. The receptionists handled the issue terribly saying that we were missing a room and couldn't check us in (even after I showed him the confirmation email). The issue only begun to be solved after I started to get angry and then they called the manager, who took care of the situation. However, once we arrived in the rooms, two of them had beds different from what I had reserved (during the check-in I highlighted, and showed the reservation, to the manager which kind of beds each room should have). Therefore, after more than 1 hour to check in, I had to return to the reception to complain about the beds and then the manager changed the rooms with the wrong beds (she gave a free upgrade to one of the rooms only because of that). In a nutshell, the entire check-in plus changing rooms due to wrong kind of beds took us much longer than what is minimally acceptable. To make things worse, there was a leakage in my shower (the rubber on the door wasn't sealing completely and the bathroom floor got wet.

Dear Valued Guest

The service you received was certainly not befitting a five star establishment and I truly regret that your experience fell short of any expectations one should have of a five star Deluxe hotel restaurant. I would therefore like to use this opportunity once again to offer my sincerest apologies for the inconveniences caused to you.

Please feel free to contact me should you wish to discuss this further.

Warm regards

Rooms very spacious and good location to explore Sandton City. It is directly connected to the mall and Nelson Mandela Square. Breakfast was abundant but of average quality. We would have liked the opportunity to try some local South African breakfast cuisine. Wifi is free and each room could have up to have 5 devices connected. But their daily wifi limit is per device and is frustratingly small. And if you have less than maximum 5 devices your can't access the other potential devices allocation. Was very helpful to be able to rent the room for half a day to accommodate a very late flight.

We stayed there for one night when we arrived in South Africa for a round trip and we liked it so much, that we went there again before leaving South Africa. Already the transport service picking us up from the airport was perfect, upon arrival we were checked in by Nqobile at the reception desk. She was outstanding, and so warmly welcoming us, that we felt really good. They mean when they say your second home. Concierge sevice was also very good and efficient. The room was very nicely decorated and spacious. The breakfast had a great choice and was delicious. The hotel has a direct link to a luxury shopping centre with a big foodcourt. The outside bar looked very nice, but we had no time to go there. When you check in early during the day, they have special facilities to shower and rest.
