of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I have just 24 hours in Johannesburg and for years I have wanted to go to The Lion Park. The wonderful Concierge help set everything for the next morning and ensured we made it back for our flight late that afternoon. The entire hotel staff were wonderful. The hotel is well kept close to shopping and wonderful restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to everyone and most importantly stay again whenever I am in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Sandton and connected to the convention centre, the mall and surrounded by other restaurants and shops. I was allocated a room on the top floor and had the most amazing views over Sandton. The rooms were spacious and luxurious and I had no trouble with the wifi. I felt completely safe during my stay and staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!
"Great location and amazing service"
Good room size with a massive bathroom and shower. Great location next to Sandton City. Amazing service from the friendly staff - nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast was excellent. Loved the ambience of the lobby.
"What a terrible service!"
I had booked the stay for 4 nights in this hotel but I had to leave after first night. A terrible hotel - a definitely not an IHG standard. While the room is very nice the service quality is disaster. I had to wait 20 minutes for check in, the dinner was overpriced and the food quality was very poor - I had to return soup and steak was over salty. Breakfast is pricey and another disaster - no fresh juices and had to wait for scrambled eggs 20 minutes. Please stay away from this hotel
The hotel is beautiful, the staff extremely helpful. The restaurant was very good and the location and proximity to other restaurants excellent. Good base for touring the area. The only problem was the incredibly loud music banging our heads when we approached the elevator bank in the morning and exited in the lobby. It was the loudest music I've ever heard in a hotel lobby or hallway and I've been to 45 InterContinentals and hundreds of other hotels. Also, there was a lovely outdoor pool, but if the water had been a little colder, we could have ice skated on it.
