The Hotel,as is and Restaurant "Running Bull"
The reception isn't very helpfull, most of the time long waiting row. Everytime again need to fill in paper work although they have all info Telephone from inside/outside not answered resulting in various missed calls
Friendly concierge staff who gave helpful local knowledge.
THE TRADITION OF THE HOTEL. VERY CLASSY AND WARM.
Room was comfy and clean. The consiege were brilliant
The lady at reception was rude
Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. A lovely, quiet and relaxing garden courtyard area and a great swimming pool
The staff were friendly, check-in was easy and it is extremely well situated in the heart of Sandton
Rooms and general facilities are very outdated, room had no kettle for tea and we stayed in room 1133 on the ground floor and the noise level was terrible.
Everything about the place is great. Not the friendlisest staff though at reception. Impatient
I arrived at 14h00 to check in. I was told rooms are not ready and offered a single bed. Really?? I needed a bed for a nap before my valentines dinner with my sweetheart. We got to check in 1hr30min later.
Hotel is excellently located,close to Sandton Mall, Mandella Sq and train station, with shuttle service to all the locations. Room & bed were comfortable and food was quite good with extra late room service . Excellent value for the money. Would return if given the same deal.
the bull run restaurant
long wait for room service
After being allocated my correct room...my stay was quite pleasant
My confirmed booking was fr a standard king room...They gave me a twin room and said that they didnt hav any other rooms available.This was disappointing as I had a confirmation fr d king room.I complained andafter a while the founf a king room for me
Access to the business district
Nothing I can put my finger on
always like the atmosphere of balalaka sandton
staffing now re custom service has dropped since i last visited balalaka. when they advise you that they will advise you when a room is ready as i booked would have been good, but i had to always go back and ask. then i got from under her breath that rooms dont become available until 2pm. i saw at least 10 people come in around 12 noon and get their rooms. it was quite a disappointment re custom service. it has gone down a bit since i have been there 4-5 times
staff went all out to make us comfortable
Television is still on antenna.very poor reception for a hotel of your standards
Central but quiet, nice gardens, well-assorted bar, sensational ribs in the affiliated "Bull run" restaurant
Route to the parking and to be given 2 single beds and I had booked a king size and it was confirmed. Requested an upper floor but given a ground floor
room size and facilities soaps shampoo excellent brand
poor ventilation of bathroom found the odd fly and mosquito the aircon display very bright and distracting at night. overall a very good hotel
Location central but quiet, perfect to explore Sandton
discussions at reception desk about billing
They have a free shutle from the Sandton Train Station that was helpful.
The Staff is very rude and nothing helpful. They were very annoying disturbing us to pay the breakfast while we were doing breakfast, what suppose we would pay on checkout as the girl on reception just told us on the very first day. We had to pay extra 100 dolares for late checkout to stay untill 8:30 pm and about 8pm they called the room to make us run. The room is very small , we paide 300 dolares for 1 day and a half in the end didnt worth it !!!
Nothing I can point out
Excellent resting and relaxing in the beautiful and well-kept gardens
Taff being expected to carry heavy trays long distances to the extremes of the hotel facilities, particularly room service. I would prefer to see the provision of trolleys or similar.
The room is obviously big enough compared to other hotels around. There is privacy as well. Breakfast was good. Wi-Fi a good idea.
The lady at front desk that I assisted with the check-in was sweet but the other one mean. When I called the reception from my room, she answered and was so cold. I didn't like it.
