Johannesburg Hotels

The Michelangelo

Pros

  • Great shopping (especially for designer labels and high-fashion items from Gucci and Louis Vuitton) in the Square and adjoining Sandton Sun Mall
  • High security is omnipresent

Cons

  • Nelson Mandela Square is very popular and never quiet
  • Service can be inattentive at times

Fodor's Review

As though taken from a street in Florence, this hotel forms the northern facade of much-touted piazza-inspired Nelson Mandela Square, also called Sandton Square. Although the hotel is unusually tasteful, even grand, the square lacks the authenticity of an Italian piazza. Still, this hotel has all the class, comforts, and facilities you'd expect from a top establishment. The atrium-style pool area is notable. The restaurant, Piccolo Mondo, focuses on Mediterranean cuisine

and features plenty of seafood from Mozambique, such as rock cod, prawns, lobsters, langoustines, and mussels.
