        Amazing couples retreat”
        The hotel is one of the best we have been to. The ambiance, decor and luxury are exceptional. The facility is very well maintained. The service is brilliant. On arrival and checking into our room, we noticed that the room type had 2 options, one with an open bathroom and one closed. We were given the closed bathroom. We called to request a change and within 5 minutes, were moved. Room service is also super fast and friendly. We enjoyed a 3 hour spa treatment as well which was exceptional. This is a definite must for couples that want a short retreat close to home. I will be back there for certain. Oh, and we were also given an hour later checkout (12pm).

        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.

        Location, Room Quality and Breakfast
        Hotel was great, clean, comfortable and all we needed for our short stay. Large rooms with a lot of white colour background making the rooms very luminous and appearing larger than it is. Well furnished with all that is required for a short stay. So thoroughly enjoyed it. As we were driving, the free valet parking was a great plus - just have to leave your keys on arrival, and call the concierge 15 before you need your car. This makes it very safe and enjoyable if you have a car.

        General observations”
        The overall staff from reception to porters, to concierge were brilliant. The let down was in the restaurant (Maximillien) at breakfast time. They are all happy, chirpy, smily but on my last day which was the day I was in a hurry to leave because of making it to the airport, they forgot the cooked breakfast that I ordered so I made do with a bowl of fruit as I had to leave. As in, they are a bit doo lally?! The room service ladies were good but had to get in to the room to replace towels that they had taken out in the morning even though I was in the room and about to leave? Surely replacing towels is not life threatening and could have waited the few minutes that I asked them to wait until I left to replace the towels? In general it is a fantastic hotel, with good value for money, ideally placed with overall good staff, cleanliness and service. Just a few hiccups which I thought you might like to hear. Thanks Agoda. Ferina

        The hotel itself is extremely classy, which is why it is unfortunate that the gym does not measure up to the same standard. It is very small, only a few cardio machines, and some of the equipment was broken for the duration of the week I was there. No option for early check-in is the other drawback. I could see that not every single room was occupied during my stay but for some reason they refused to even entertain the idea of letting me check in early so that I could get settled before my conference which began in the afternoon and
