"Warm welcome "
Superb hotel in trendy area of JoBurg which was surrounded by nice shopping area and enough eateries. The hotel had fantastic furniture everywhere with lots of art and funky chairs. Great pool area which was well looked after. Rooms were lovely , only criticism was lights were operated only from one side ( husband's !) Breakfast superb , so many choices .... even oysters. The staff were exceptional .
"Trendy upper class excellence "
Great decor in this hotel. The rooms are especially interesting with different material used for the walls, zebra skins mixed with gold furniture yet tastefully done so. If you want a change to your normal everyday hotel then this would be a great place to visit. Centrally situated in johannesburg also helps with easy access to the highways and attractions Johannesburg has to offer. Oh yea and you can sit in the pool on chairs and a table that doubles as a restaurant! Great!
"Amazing Hotel "
This hotel is brilliant. The rooms are spacious modern and clean. The beds are what I come expect from protea and the Marriott. The location is brilliant and I did my research and I never did not feel not safe in Melrose. There are a lot of restaurants to chose from for all different tastes and they do breakfast. At the top of the road is a red hop on hop off bus stop which I wish we knew before we went. If you want a hotel and want to feel safe then this is the hotel for you.
"Five Star Hotel"
The African Pride in Melrose Arch Johannesburg is truly a 5 star property. Although the rooms could use a little TLC the friendly staff, location and service more than make up for this. The breakfast buffet could hold its own in Vegas and if you are paying with Dollars it is a steal.
"Nice hotel with dismal service and ridiculous gym pricing"
The hotel is perfectly located as you have a lot of shops, restaurants and bars in this area and you can also walk around freely at night without having to feel unsafe. Rooms were modern, clean and nice, but a bit smaller compared to other hotels of this category. Unfortunately, the service was dismal, staff was neither friendly nor very helpful when you asked something. Often we even received conflicting information on very simple questions. I also think that a 5 stars hotel needs a gym and it should not have its guests pay extraordinary amounts for going to a public gym nearby. They charge you 275 Rand per person per day for using the Virgin Active Gym nearby, which given local purchasing power is like charging a guest 50USD++ for a gym visit. I also cannot recommend booking any activities via the travel desk of the hotel as you will pay much more for the same thing (e.g. a Soweto Tour).
