        Superb location!”

        Conveniently located in the heart of Sandton, attached to Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton convention center just in the corner. Breakfast was great, room was spacious and nicely decorated, WiFi was good as well. Traffic can be bad around this area on weekdays late afternoon.

        Perfect hotel with great location/service”

        We only stayed one night for flight transfer, but feel more than satisfied for what we get. The hotel is quite new with black/white simple style, all facilities maintained well. And the location is perfect, it’s at Mandela square with nice restaurants around and also connected to huge shopping mall. We don't really need to step out the building to get everything. And what really differentiate the hotel is the service level. From pick up service till check in, could really feel the hospitality from all staffs. Especially when we have early check out like 7am in the morning, and we mentioned that we would like to send the postcard to friend. The receptionist told us could go to Concierge for help. Not till two seconds the porter named Marcus approached us and said he could help us take postcard to Concierge. And he noticed we have early check out without breakfast. He actively help us make coffee and even pack croissant for us. He’s such a considerable and humble person, and do one step forward for his customers. It’s such a pleasure experience to stay here, we would definitely choose Da Vinci hotel again if come visit Johannesburg.

        Strategic location, great breakfast and beaitiful room/gotel decor

        It was just a short stay but we loved the modern classic décor to the hotel and room. The hotel is at a very strategic location and is just walking distance to the Nelson Mandela Square as well as the Sandton City Mall. The thing that upset us was that this hotel has a very early checkout time, 10am! Wish the checkout time was 12pm just like other hotels.

        Easy access from JNB O R Tambo airport by Gautrain or taxi. Located in Sandton adjoining the Nelson Mandela Square complex so easy and safe to walk to shops, bars and restaurants. Hotel is well designed, being quite contempory without being ultra-modern. I would return without hesitation.

        Outstanding hotel in every way”

        Superb bathroom; plenty of lights in the room; great location

        This hotel sets a standard that I wish all those overrated 4 star hotels in the UK and US came even close to following..... Spacious, thoughtfully appointed, modern and bright room, big window, very comfortable bed, plenty of lighting which you could dim or brighten according to your needs. Well designed, from the spotlessly white beds and chairs, to the silver-toned curtains and beautiful richly-toned wood of the desk and dresser. Plenty of drawer and shelf space for you to put away your things, far more than in most hotels. And the bathroom is state of the art--all glass walls and very bright, a deep tub that it was a pleasure to soak in, a separate rainshower with plenty of water pressure, and an excellent modern design. I loved the entire experience. I've stayed in so many hotels world-wide, because of my work travel, that I have generally don't enjoy hotel experiences, but this hotel was a pleasure to stay in, with the all the thoughtful comforts of home combined with an elegance and style that you seldom find outside of Asia. In short, Davinci was definitely the best hotel I've stayed in. As an added bonus, it has great security and is located next to a safe mall with excellent shopping.

        Wonderful hotel. Made to feel very welcome the moment I stepped into the hotel. Check in was easy and hassle free. All the staff from the reception desk to the porters and cleaning staff were always smiling and willing to help me to make sure I had a good stay at the DAVINCI hotel. I was given a large spacious room with a king size bed and it included a huge bath as well as a huge shower in the bathroom. There was a complementary coffee machine to use and unlimited free bottles of water included too. The room was fabulous and very clean. The breakfast buffet each morning was very good and the staff were quick in cleaning up and providing really good coffee once ordered. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant and was made to feel very welcome by the manager who went out of his way to speak personally to all of his guests not just me. Nothing seemed a problem for either him or his staff. Had a wonderful steak dinner. Overall, one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at. Fabulous!!!!

        Very convenient for business travellers. Hotel is found within the nelson mandela complex which is not only convenient but safe. The only issue is that the access to the rooms has to go through the lobby level first. If you have stuff to carry then it might be an issue if they do not have staffs or porters to help you. Also beware, everything is about tips so if u need assistance, please do have some money to give. In case u have a car, there is a parking lot just annexed to the hotel. U need to ask the security guy. They will give u access and before u leave have ur ticket scan or stamp at the lobby area.

        I absolutely loved our weekend stay at the Davinci it was 5 star all the way, was super impressed with the cleanness of the place, the restaurant, the room, the pool. The only downer was reception when we wanted to check in they asked for an ID which I had left in the car and i had no problem going to get back but upon return the guy also requested we go and get my friend's which he had failed to mention in the first place. Was so super annoyed coz walking up and down to the reception in our heels wasn't fun. I loved the breakfast great choices. Overall we had an amazing experience would recommend it to anyone
