Super-comfy hotel with great food, convenient safe location and excellent service. An excellent value!

What a wonderful stay I had at this hotel, just one week ago! I visited while on business in Johannesburg and decided to make the journey along with my husband and three children in tow. African Pride did everything right, from the moment we arrived until we departed! In advance, we booked a family arrangement (two rooms that shared a common hallway and door). And there wasn't a single thing that we ever wanted for, while occupying them! My two sons, nine and seven, were pleasantly surprised to arrive to a boys guest room that was kitted out in batman decor, with kid friendly snacks on the table, and their most prized room feature, a Playstation, hooked up to their television! Thanks to Reception Manager, Sharon, for handling this and our other many demands! Plus for business, when I needed to send a fax, the hotel did so within minutes and without hesitation. When something needed to be printed and distributed to other guests, they did so immediately! On top of this, they welcomed our 17 month old daughter with open arms! Requests for milk came within minutes, and on our final day, they brought her the cutest lion stuffed animal, accompanied with the sweetest note, encouraging her to remember her visit to African Pride. And flowers for me, seriously, can this hotel be anymore wonderful!?! I will only stay at African Pride, when I come to Johannesburg! Thanks for the amazing experience!

Amazing hotel in a great location. Perfect for business or pleasure. Staff were great.

Good spot if you are in town for work and not a bad place if you had a night or two before traveling outside the city. There are plenty of shops/restaurants in this safe and gated complex. Not a resort or leisure spot.

Great hotel with modern, trendy flair. cozy, dimly lit atmosphere in dining area during dinner. Classy,upscale, funky decor catering to singles, couples and the business community. The visit was part holiday and part business. I have stayed at many upscale hotels, however, the service here far exceeded those establishments. Loved the restaurant. Great location with tons of eateries nearby, but the hotel restaurant, March, was by far my favorite. They even catered to my request for some of the local cuisine not on the menu. Lovely pool, excellent staff, who actually became my friends for the the extended stay. Loved the gated community surrounding the hotel complex, very safe, lots of security. I went out often at night without any problems. Loved the cool attire of the doormen and friendly service, they actually do know you by name. Very comfortable rooms and impeccable housekeeping. Kudos to the Manager who took care of every request. Did I mention the restuarant and the staff, ok, I guess you can tell I really enjoyed breakfast every morning as well as some dinners for over 20 days!! Did I mention the staff, ok I really enjoyed the company! Very cozy library bar,perfect space for meetings or friendly gatherings, has a surround sound private movie viewing room as well as pool table. Loved the in room DVD movie collection as well as the upgraded in room sound system. Far exceeded my expectations, Upscale but not stuffy! We will definitely see you all again in the future!
