                          Check in was pretty average, the staff took 20 mins to check me in, and then told me that they did not have a room avail immed, and check in is from 2pm. It was 12.30 pm then, and I would have preferred that they tell me upfront rather than 20 mins into check in. he other thing was getting out of the parking was a nuisance, as I had confirmed with the reception staff on check out, that my key card was validated in order to let me out of the parking, however when I got to the gate, the card would not let me out, and this meant reversing back into other traffic, and going back to the 13th floor to get the card revalidated again. interestingly enough, the staff that checked me in, were the same that did my check out.......

                          Location was convenient, it was close to Nelson Mandela Square. Security was good - lifts required room cards to access the floor.

                          It was a disaster from start to finish. We drove up and waited 10 minutes for someone to even look at us then spent another 10 minutes waiting for someone to help us unload our luggage from the car. Meanwhile a porter was sitting at the main entrance in plain sight, talking on the phone with his feet up on the table. This was absolutely unacceptable, but I shrugged it off. The main lobby was actually on 13/F and to get up there, I spent another 15 minutes waiting for the lift because there was some malfunction. Once I got up there, the manager on duty Nadia made up for it with very attentive service and wrote down my grievances right away. More to say but run out of space!

                          The interior comfort and design

                          I was ripped off by Avis (based in the hotel) who where masquerading as a courtesey car for the Radisson Blu Sandton when in fact they were charging R575 to take me from the airport to the hotel. Radisson Blu could not organise a refund for me... they should not support a company who use such unethical business practices and should have compensated me for this exhorbitant charge.

                          The Hotel was good but price too expensive, it is not 5 star but the price was at this level.

                          Mostly I liked the friendly staff and the gym. The gym is really excellent - the only thing what I was missing there has been the possibility to relax during the use of the sauna/steam-room.

                          The elevator-system is very special ;0) but after I while it is easy to handle

                          Cleanliness,friendliness and breakfast was poor to say the least!

                          Very noisy, there was a constant bash/thumping sound early in the mornings, like they were cleaning or building

                          The staff ... especially the folks at the front door ... were among the best I've experienced. Have nothing but high praise for all those I had occasion to deal with.
