We really liked the interesting design of the rooms and the bed was nice a comfy. We also liked that there were a lot of channels on the tv. The only thing that was weird was that the hotel doesn't have very much to do around it.

+ i like the industrial design, the clean and comfortable bed, the view from the rooftop bar, the espresso at the bar on 3rd floor and the helpful f&b manager - stained carpet and chair in bedroom, the noise (music 100db??) during evening and most of the night, in and from the rooftop part

What was advertised on the internet (pictures) and what we saw was totally different. Place was poorly maintained. Very noisy and did not receive value for money. We were booked for 4 nights but just stayed for 1 night and booked out as the conditions was disgusting to say the least. I have also sent an email requesting a refund of the 3 nights that was booked, paid for but we did not stay. Sincerely Tashya Giyapersad

Not impressed on arrival! !!!”
I had booked 2 separate rooms for me and a friend. We arrived earlier around 10 we were told to wait as check_in time is at 14H00 but we waited until 16H00 still ROOMS NOT READY. ..only got one key around 16H25. The hotel rooms very clean and beds VERY COMFORTABLE. The staff members WELL TRAINED but the hotel needs some upgrading especially reception on 3rd floor and their couches very old.....seemingly it use to be THE HOTEL but needs revamping. The corridors had noise from other guests.

The hotel is well maintained although the lifts (elevators) need some work. We got the room we paid for and we tried both restaurants and both were good. The steaks at the third floor restaurant were excellent. The roof top bar is lovely and wow, the orchids!

Come for Joburg; Stay at the Reef; Fall in love with the people ”
As a young single women, traveling alone comes with its own unique set of challenges and concerns, including safety. However, while staying at The Reef, I felt right at home. When I first got to the hotel, I was greeted by Moses who led me to the reception desk on the third floor. Throughout my stay, I was able to count on him - as well as Quincy, Thammie, Anxious, Garth, Petronella, (the list could go on forever really) - for the best advice about the city including places to visit and transportation routes. When it comes to hospitality, the staff at The Reef is unmatched; though, I did expect a bit more for the accommodations. I was unable to reach the staff at the hotel before I arrived at the airport to arrange a ride to the hotel and had to use a taxi. The room itself was clean enough, but I did find myself hand washing my towels and wiping down services. I also found a few bugs during my stay. But, kudos are deserved for energy saving measures like motion sensored lighting. 👍

Very friendly ”
When we arrived in Johannesburg after a long flight, we got our rental car and drove directly to The Reef. The staff there was exceptional friedly and took every opportunity to make our stay more comfortable- always with a warm smile. We are ourselves front office manager and chef in a hotel in Switzerland - we found nothing to complain about. This is a good hotel in South Africa which is absolutely worth its 4 stars. You should ask the concierge team what to do in the surrounding. We only wanted to do a small tour as we've been tired after the long journey. Quincey guided us personally and was eager to give us some interesting information. The lady who prepared our omelettes did an outstanding job and demonstrated so much enjoyment proudness with her big smile. - it was great to see that she loves her job as much as we do ours. Thanks a lot to all of The Reef's staff for making us feel welcome to South Africa at the beginning of our journey
