I love to use this hotel when I’m in joburg on business. Very centrally located It’s a neat 3⭐️no frills hotel. Check in was quick and efficient. Room was clean and neat. Decent breakfast. Just what you need for a decent nights sleep. Always a pleasure.

I was booked for a stay just shorter than a week. The rooms are very basic with the unusual drawback of not having any cupboards or drawers that can close. Very inconvenient for a business stay. I don't like the idea of my clothes etc on shelves against the wall. On the plus side the staff were friendly, professional and helpful. Also a very comfortable bed!

There is a Holiday Inn in Sandton which is gorgeous. Go to this one. The Holiday Inn Express Sandton is not nearly lovely as the other one. Actually, it is located in a quite dangerous area on an industrial park, so you are surrounded by a fence. You are not supposed to go alone on a walk or a run even in the fenced area. There are no restaurant or shops in walking distance, so you always need to take a taxi. The hotel has a restaurant which is okay, but after 3 days of the same choice, you get sick of it. The room was clean and fine.

Second time staying here. Good value. The rooms are minimalistic but clean and hotel has all the amenities. The hotel team friendly and helpful. Breakfast minimal but suffice and line with hotel rates.

The hotel is situated inside a business park and has good security at gate for safety. Also being in the business park after hours makes it quite peaceful. Standard breakfast included in price was very nice and filling. Room was very clean and comfortable with standard TV & limited TV package programs. Complimentary Wifi was limited to fixed amount and therefore streaming or Youtube is not possible, would have to buy extra airtime. Staff were friendly and efficient. This is not a brand new hotel and if you want to be picky, the room shows slight wear and tear, but definitely not enough to bother your stay which overall was more than pleasant

HIE provide standard and basic service and accommodation. This one goes beyond basics. Location is 25 mns from the airport, 15 mns from Sandton City and less than 10 mns from the Mall of Africa. It is situated in a business park and off a highway. Newer property with open concept reception and dining / lounge area, including outside terrasse. Rooms are small but make efficient use of space. Breakfast buffet is way above what one usually gets at a HIE. Food was fresh and with good variety. Keep it up. Front desk staff were efficient and responsive. Hotel uses a private taxi service. Recommended. Restaurant next door. Did not use it so cannot comment on food and service. Overall this HIE is highly recommended.

Being a regular patron at the City Lodge Group, my experience at this establishment was a bit disappointing. I had no cupboard in my room to unpack for my 5-day stay. Found two maintenance issues in my room that was not addressed. Breakfast was pleasant. Staff was helpful, but management seemed to be absent during my stay.

Lovely reception, always ready with paperwork when I get there. Always happy to help where they can. Room nice and clean. Breakfast was wonderful, always a pleasure and the staff always friendly and willing to help.

I don't really like to give three stars, but "very good" often feels like too much praise in some cases. Here's one of those examples where "average" is a good thing. This is place is not going to win any awards for individuality but it is exactly what you expext from a chain hotel. Professional and helpful staff (if perhaps slightly disinterested), very well presented rooms and reception, and a good breakfast. If you want convenience at a reasonable rate. This place ticks those boxes.

Was looking for a weekend hideaway and this express hotel was much more than what we bargained for. Location is within reach and close to freeway and major shopping malls within 5 km' s, Rooms were clean and beat most on quietness , breakfast is similar to most hotels I've stayed in, just enough to start your day. Staff are friendly and helpful
