"Good choice "
A good, large, new hotel. Mostly used by businesses travelers, but ok for other stays as well. Clean, spacious rooms. Restaurant and bar in hotel available if you don't want to go out. Good buffet breakfast. A 30-40 minute ride from/to airport. At the concierge desk they provide several tour options in Johannesburg. We booked a private Soweto-tour. Not a cheap option, but because we travelled with a young kid, for us this was a very good experience and well organized this way.
"Great hotel for business trips"
I spent more than a week at this Radisson and found it quite good in all respects. The rooms are clean and functional, the food and beverages are quite good and the staff helpful and attentive. There is a very nice deck on the third floor adjoining reception--a great place to sit and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. I think this is a great option if you are in Sandton on a business trip. It is also very close to Nelson Mandela Square and many restaurants.
The Radisson Blue Gautrain is a very new hotel and very conveniently located to the Gautrain which operates to the OR Tambo airport and a very short stroll to one of the best shopping precincts in South Africa. As a very discerning and regular international traveler, I can report the room was lovely, spacious, modern, well-equipped, very comfortable bed and has a great bathroom with a massive shower with a rainfall shower head & good quality bathroom products. Only thing missing were bathrobes, but they were supplied when requested. Only glitch was the lack of cutlery when we ordered room service. The restaurant was fantastic (I'm generally wary of hotel restaurants), but the food was brilliant - we had the ostrich and springbok which was the essence of perfection and came with the matching service. I'll be back!
"Great location and modern hotel"
Excellent hotel for location in the middle of Sandton by Gautrain station so it is easy to get to and from the airport. It is well designed and has comfortable rooms for the business traveller, has UK EU and local plug sockets👍 provides good quality breakfast and lunches together with work or meeting areas inside and outside on level 3 where reception is based.
I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in May 2016 during a business trip to Johannesburg and found it quite impressive. Most impressive is the location, especially for commuting via the Gautrain and the quality of food at the restaurant compared to nearby restaurants. The rooms, especially the business class rooms, are of reasonable size and adequate. The hotel is modern and the staff are courteous. I was able to hold a few business lunch meetings at the hotel lounge and restaurant. I recommend this hotel for business trips.
