        Excellent Hotel”

        Great spacious rooms, location and staff

        The hotel was well located for the events I was attending on the Melrose Arch estate. Good friendly staff, a warm amosphere is maintained in the Lobby and the dining areas. The rooms where equal to other five star hotels I have stayed in. Another plus was the easy walking distance to all the resturants and shops on the Melrose Arch gated estate. I would recommend Africa Pride to any visitors to Johannesburg who don't want to hustle and bustle of Sandton

        Location

        The hotel is really good with great service in most areas except the bar which was annoying. For a 5 star, the hotel has nice sized rooms, good pool and decent food. The location is the best feature if you want to stay around the Melrose area as the hotel is situated in a square with plenty of places to eat and shop while feeling secure (Sandton another great area to consider).

        African pride is a comfortable hotel in a great location. The hotel has a good vibe and the service was great. The pool area is unique. There are tables and chairs in a shallow potion of the pool which is just right on a hot day for a cocktail or beer.

        This hotel is perfectly located in a safe and enjoyable area. Can walk around at night for drinks and dinner without concern. The hotel itself is also lovely, fun, quirky and unique which is always nice when on holidays. My only criticism was our shower... they really need to give the tiles a good scrub they were full of mould. But that’s all, everything else was perfect.
