Radisson Blu Hotel Sandton, Johannesburg5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The one thing with a high rise building is definitely the views, and from this property no matter what room you are in, you have superb views of Johannesburg and a great opportunity for that African Sunrise or Sunset picture - whether it be from your room or the pool deck on the 8th floor. The gym is FAB! 3 floors, running track and a pool and all the equipment that you need. The staff at concierge are so helpful with everything - the confusion of concierge on the ground floor but check in on the 13th floor is quite interesting but such a good surprise - - views from the restaurant, gym, pool deck and the bedrooms. Business or leisure the location is ideal. Less than 1km from the Gautrain Station as well as Sandton City shopping centre where you can shop and eat to your hearts content and they can drop you off and collect you as well - just make sure you check the schedule or take down the drivers number. BREAKFAST - that's all. Ive never been disappointed by a breakfast at Radisson Blu and this breakfast is superb. Look forward to being back next April!
We arrived after 1pm and they couldn’t find our booking and the rooms were not ready. We opt to have lunch where the service was friendly but very slow. We had to enquire twice about our rooms. In the room the turndown turned out to be a turn up-side-down with the duvet cover not covering the duvet! The water pressure in the shower was very poor and the hot water turned out very luke at 5am in the morning. Sorry, but I expected more from a Radisson Hotel.
Our first time in SA and our first 2 nights after a long flight and how lovely to arrive at this hotel. Reception and check in was welcoming and efficient. Our room was stunning and the bar and restaurant just perfect. Breakfast service and selection was outstanding. We loved it. The shuttle service to Nelson Mandela Square was excellent and we felt very safe and well looked after by all the staff. Well done folks. Usually big chain hotels can feel a bit sterile but the team here are exceptional and we were delighted that we had chosen it for our 2 days in Jo'burg. Thank you
Checked in radisson blu sandton and it was the perfect oasis from the rat race of work travel work.... the staff were friendly facilities clean and food fresh... it was the best place to escape and re group. I strongly recommend staying here when in town for business.
Nice bar area, decent restaurant, excellent breakfast and gym, (neither which I got to use sadly). Pleasant staff, although the reception check in was very slow. The rooms are average and the shower could do with being harder. Decent beds however. Annoying there are not any sockets accessible from the bedside, not great in today’s world.
Was on a business trip with a large group. Rooms were allocated without asking the guests whether they prefer a smoking or a non-smoking room, I was allocated a smoking room and I had to go down to reception with all my luggage, stand in a queue again requesting for a non-smoking room. Check in went smooth. Room was spacious but ok with free wi fi. Buffet breakfast was excellent with a large variety to choose from. Service was a bit slow. Only frustration is the card system they use for the lifts. You have to enter the car 3-5 times before it registers. Hotel situated close to Sandton City Mall and they have a shuttle that will drop you off.
The room was very spacious and bathroom to die for. Room service was excellent. The view was not that great. The staff at the help Desk was extremely professional. Very Central and easy access to Johannesburg, Rosebank, Sandton, Pretoria and surroundings
Terrible service. When i arrived and check-in the attendant told me that she couldn't find my reservation. I showed her my voucher but she continued saying that I had no reservation. In the end, I had to make another reservation online. Besides this, when we were going to the room, we opened the door and verified that were another people in the room. YES, THERE WERE PEOPLE IN THE ROOM THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MINE. I went to the reception again and she just told me "I am sorry for this". We called the travel agent and he didn't understand what happened because our reservation was active and was clearly a misunderstood of the hotel's employee . In the end, I still with no answer about what happened with my reservation!!!!
Excellent Service, Neat & Very Tidy Rooms, Staff Very Friendly, Its a home away from home, Best Hotel in Sandton & close to Shopping Mall & have a Shuttle Service to & from Sandton Mall & Gautrain Station.
So impressed with this hotel a short walk from the Gautrian. Excellent service received from reception, beautiful gym and spa and transportation service which will take you wherever you want to go. Only negative was the room service menu which did not have enough healthy options for me - so I ended up having a burger with all the toppings. Unfortunately the meat was a standard supermarket processed and compacted burger and not good. Please can we have real food real mince like most burger restaurants and so good vegetable or a stir fry on the menu. Overall and excellent choice. Be sure to take your bathing costume for a swim, sauna or whirlpool
