Johannesburg, South Africa

Virgin rating

The hotel

Just around the corner from the Johannesburg stock exchange, but also within touching distance of Nelson Mandela Square and Sandton City Mall - this hotel can be a great base for whatever reason it is that you're in Sandton! If you are interested in visiting these popular landmarks, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to get you there in no time, as well as to Sandton Gautrain Station if you're looking to carry on your South Africa travels elsewhere. Back at the hotel you can relax at the outdoor pool, complete with the Gazebo bar so you can grab a tasty snack or a glass of wine in the sun. Whoever you're travelling with, there is a room for you - with interconnecting rooms available for families. Or if you're travelling on business, an executive room might be a great option, giving you access to the Executive Club Lounge to enjoy complimentary breakfast before your meetings, and a private space to relax with refreshments after a hard day.

My room was beautiful clean and comfortable. Whenever I needed room service there was no delay in time. The breakfast was the best food. Nice and fresh. Delicious omelets made to order by Chef Frank with a courteous spirit. I truly enjoyed my stay at the Hilton in Sandton. All the staff was gracious courteous and professional from the beginning to the end of our stay. Thank you all for making my visit to Johannesburg one of my best memories for life! I’m hoping to visit again and the Hilton Sandton I will stay..I highly recommend. Viola from America😊 Read less

Stayed for 3 nights. Even if room is OK I need to highlight a real bad service. Arrogant at the check-in and waited 30min for a lunch with empty restaurant. Sauna is not real sauna, just a room with an electric heating system. I will not return and I do not recomment to stay.

We stayed here probably for the last time. The Hotel lost its glory and now Hilton pulls out of this property mid 2024 with no alternative options in Sandton/Johannesburg from the Hilton Group. After they pulled out of Cape Town also the end of Hilton in Gauteng. It is concerning that there are no options left and I will have to find a new alternative for the future trips. The service was showing that it is 'end of life'. A sad affair considering what it used to be. Read less
