This hotel is in a fantastic location across the road from the Gautrain and Sandton city. Easy check in, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast all at great value. Only fault...we were woken up very early by the welcome message blaring on the tv in the empty room next door. Problem sorted after a quick call to reception. All in all very... More

It is a hotel without anything special or extra, but it still has this something. It just is an average extreme. All is good, in right place and at the right time. Rooms are big enough, service is good enough, food is delicious enough, you feel at home enough. And I'm returning again and again.

Besides the location which is excellent, the hotel is nothing special. Is it clean? Yes, but that's to be expected. Is the staff friendly? Yes.

As always, I need a versatile platform to conduct meetings, create athmosphere for my business partners and be quickly at my clients' site if so required. Sandton is in the midst of all these aspects, but often traffic will test ones resilience and patience. Not so in the Radisson Gautrain, where you have all the proximity to Mandela Square plus...

Excellent location across the road from the Gautrain making access to airport safe and easy. Also walking distance to Sandton shopping centre and the area did not feel unsafe at all.

Stopped over for two nights before international flight. It was ideal location, near transport links, and lovely shopping/eating Mall just across the road. Primarily a business type hotel, but did not lack amenities for leisure. Breakfast was a huge buffet, every choice you could think of or want, with top quality food. Rooms large, well appointed, great bathrooms. The only... More
