The Michelangelo 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.
