#1 FAVE IN SANDTON

New York City, New York

I formerly stayed at the Sandton Sun until I discovered the Michelangelo. I have traveled the world. The Michelangelo is in my top 5. The rooms are excellent. Spacious, comfy. I was fortunate to get a room overlooking Mandela Square. The staff is well-trained, warm, friendly, helpful. Great bar in the lobby. Unlike the Sun, Michelangelo is connected directly to Sandton Mall, with interior access to shops and great restaurants. Stay here!

Grand hotel on Mandela Square with connected shopping mall

Sydney, Australia

Grand Hotel in an impressive building. Reception desk service was efficient. Rooms clean, beds comfortable. Best to try and get a room looking out onto the Square. Breakfast in the restaurant was good. Lunch in the bar was also good. Dinner in the restaurant (Piccolo Mondo) was a disappointment (separate review). Airport transfers organised by the hotel were on time and comfortable. Good location with adjoining shopping mall for a stroll around the shops/cafes etc with seemingly good security.
