"Fun boutique hotel"
I enjoyed staying in this hotel. The hotel sets in the middle of Melrose Arch, a high end shopping area in Joburg. There are a number of restaurants and cafes within steps of the hotel. The hotel has fun details, including soaker tubs and the safe is located behind a picture of a safe. Even though Joburg does have issues with safety, I felt safe walking in the vicinity.
"Some staff could be more helpful & friendlier"
Nice boutique hotel in a complex of shops, restaurants and other hotels, safe to walk about. Reception by front door staff and some front desk was lukewarm at best. The crew upon our departure were much better. While having breakfast in the dining room, we had to ask for a menu and explanation (ie a la carte or buffet). Once settled some staff there were good. buffet reasonably priced ($25 cdn pp) and lots of variety. The room was a good size, we had a balcony (unused). Treats were left for us (although we may have received someone else's room, as the welcome letter wasn't addressed to us, lol). Bed was comfortable, sheets were crisp (literally), pillows were fluffy. Towels large and fluffy as well. Water pressure really strong (first thing in morning it did take a bit for the hot water to come through) and bath amenities great (soap, shampoo, lotion, body wash, etc in copious quantities). Wifi excellent, strong signal, even well outside the hotel. Free bottled water in the room, m&m's in the lobby. Hotel transport to/from hotel can be arranged (750 zar)
"Comfort meets Luxury"
African Pride came highly recommended by past guests. And there is no doubt that the service, staff and accommodations were all as expected. We were offered drinks upon check in and brought up to our room. It was a lovely, large space with all the conveniences that you could ask for. We also received a choice of turndown service and drinks to receive. African Pride also held our baggage while we spent time on a Safari Tour providing a safe and secure location for those items so we were able to travel light. The public spaces are well appointed and staff offered service with a smile.
"Beautiful funky hotel"
From check in with a glass of champagne to the buffet breakfast with glorious pastries, everything was perfect. Our room overlooked the pool with dining tables set in the water, really beautiful. The room was elegant and well laid out with a stereo system. Premium toiletries. Wonderful area filled with shops and restaurants within walking distance. Interesting decor.
"Amazing stay in prime location"
I had the pleasure of staying at the African Pride Melrose hotel in November and my stay was fabulous. The staff here was very accommodating and went above and beyond to assist. The hotel was located in a prime location with tons of food and entertainment options within walking distance. The room was very well appointed and even had surround sound as well as DVDs already in your hotel room. I wish I could have spent a few more days at this beautiful location but I will certainly be back. I wish I could remember the name one of the staff member who greets you at the front door. you. Really tall and big stature but he really went above the call of duty to show me around town. Once he got off work he walked me around to the various restaurants and clubs and introduced me as family and told everyone to take care of me. For the remainder of my trip and anytime I walked in this area the workers and owners were coming out to greet me and ask me and my family if we needed anything. No pressure to come in and purchase anything just being kind and making sure we were having a great time. Big shout out to staff at this hotel I will certainly be back to visit again and I recommend you check this place out.
