"Nice hotel, no free breakfast for Marriott members :("
I was super excited to stay at this particular hotel and booked it via the Marriott rewards website. As a platinum member (4 platinum members with group) I expected free wifi, breakfast, and executive lounge access. Only free wifi was offered. Extremely disappointed in the breakfast, we will not come back to the hotel in the future.
"Appalling Management - AVOID!"
This is a good hotel, spoilt by a duty manager that was rather ignorant and entirely unhelpful. We booked 3 nights- 2 with points and 1 paid for. We were told by the check in person that 'breakfast is included in the stay'. On check out we found that not to be the case. Only the 'paid' night was with inclusive breakfast, so we had to pay for the others. if we had known, we'd have got a cheaper breakfast elsewhere. I pointed out what the check in person said. The duty manager advised me that the details were in the small print on my booking and I should have read it. He said he would have deleted the charge if he could have checked with the check in person but she was on holiday. He was dismissive and rude. We had to pay.
"Great Hotel and Location"
In the upscale area of Melrose Arch. The hotel and service were beautiful. Good location, close to most things in Johannesburg. The pool and lounge area are also very nice and the breakfast is delicious.
"Nice hotel in a Safe Zone"
Nice and big rooms in the heart of Melrose Arch. Design is interesting and quite particular. Ideal for a one night stop in Jo'burg. Plenty of nice restaurants around. Unfortunately, staff was a bit distracted when we arrived (wrong room and no excuses, forgot to hand back passport,...). Breakfast price is quite over-rated as well as the tours organized by the travel desk. Still a good option in the area.
"Modern luxury with excellent old fashioned service"
Stayed at the African Pride overnight on my last night of a two week trip around South Africa. The hotel is modern and very comfortable and in the heart of the Melrose Arch precinct. Check in was a breeze with the added bonus of an upgrade :) The room was spacious, immaculate and the bed divine. I was very tired after a long night so ordered room service. The food was good and arrive relatively quickly. Next morning breakfast was delicious and matched by the service. A late check out as my flight was not until 5pm. Finished my stay sampling a couple of the numerous scotches in the excellent atmosphere of the bar. I would happily stay at the African Pride again.
