    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.

    Overall highly recommended.”

    Pros: Well-appointed and spacious rooms. Breakfast is good and location superb. Cons: There are no nice areas to sit and have a drink or light meal. The only cosy and comfortable area is the downstairs bar in which the hotel unfortunately allows guests to smoke. The reception/lounge area and pool have seating areas but they are not cosy or pleasant. Most staff members are great and very friendly but some could use more training in customer service.

    First class hotel with first rate staff.Great value for money in a great location. ”

    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!!!!

    Bad guest service ”

    The manger at night at the bar I believe his name is Warren. I came to the bar to ask the staff behind the bar if I could use the microwave, Warren walks up and say we don’t use microwaves nor do we have one. He ask if I had a room I said yes, he said well it should be one in your room. I told every room doesn’t have one. He said well we can’t help you. He was totally rude and of course he lied. One of the staff waited until he walked away and walked me to the microwave that was in the building. I also witnessed him being rude to the employees as well. This gentleman should not be a manager. I stay at this hotel often but I will be checking other hotel out because I don’t have to spend my money where guest service is as rude as this gentleman. I hope that this review is read by upper management in order to speak with this gentleman about his behavior.

    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.

    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).
