    Perfect hotel with great location/service”

    We only stayed one night for flight transfer, but feel more than satisfied for what we get. The hotel is quite new with black/white simple style, all facilities maintained well. And the location is perfect, it’s at Mandela square with nice restaurants around and also connected to huge shopping mall. We don't really need to step out the building to get everything. And what really differentiate the hotel is the service level. From pick up service till check in, could really feel the hospitality from all staffs. Especially when we have early check out like 7am in the morning, and we mentioned that we would like to send the postcard to friend. The receptionist told us could go to Concierge for help. Not till two seconds the porter named Marcus approached us and said he could help us take postcard to Concierge. And he noticed we have early check out without breakfast. He actively help us make coffee and even pack croissant for us. He’s such a considerable and humble person, and do one step forward for his customers. It’s such a pleasure experience to stay here, we would definitely choose Da Vinci hotel again if come visit Johannesburg.

    Strategic location, great breakfast and beaitiful room/gotel decor

    It was just a short stay but we loved the modern classic décor to the hotel and room. The hotel is at a very strategic location and is just walking distance to the Nelson Mandela Square as well as the Sandton City Mall. The thing that upset us was that this hotel has a very early checkout time, 10am! Wish the checkout time was 12pm just like other hotels.

    convenience - Gautrain,Sandton, Nelson Mandela Sq”

    location - design - rooms

    Easy access from JNB O R Tambo airport by Gautrain or taxi. Located in Sandton adjoining the Nelson Mandela Square complex so easy and safe to walk to shops, bars and restaurants. Hotel is well designed, being quite contempory without being ultra-modern. I would return without hesitation.

    Outstanding hotel in every way”

    Superb bathroom; plenty of lights in the room; great location

    This hotel sets a standard that I wish all those overrated 4 star hotels in the UK and US came even close to following..... Spacious, thoughtfully appointed, modern and bright room, big window, very comfortable bed, plenty of lighting which you could dim or brighten according to your needs. Well designed, from the spotlessly white beds and chairs, to the silver-toned curtains and beautiful richly-toned wood of the desk and dresser. Plenty of drawer and shelf space for you to put away your things, far more than in most hotels. And the bathroom is state of the art--all glass walls and very bright, a deep tub that it was a pleasure to soak in, a separate rainshower with plenty of water pressure, and an excellent modern design. I loved the entire experience. I've stayed in so many hotels world-wide, because of my work travel, that I have generally don't enjoy hotel experiences, but this hotel was a pleasure to stay in, with the all the thoughtful comforts of home combined with an elegance and style that you seldom find outside of Asia. In short, Davinci was definitely the best hotel I've stayed in. As an added bonus, it has great security and is located next to a safe mall with excellent shopping.

    Fantastic hotel in a safe a vibrant district.”

    We were worried about staying in Johannesburg, but the Davinci was brilliant! Extremely safe and secure in the most upmarket area of South Africa. Close to Tambo airport and the best of shopping. Hotel was 5 Star plus...

    First class hotel with first rate staff.Great value for money in a great location. ”

    Wonderful hotel. Made to feel very welcome the moment I stepped into the hotel. Check in was easy and hassle free. All the staff from the reception desk to the porters and cleaning staff were always smiling and willing to help me to make sure I had a good stay at the DAVINCI hotel. I was given a large spacious room with a king size bed and it included a huge bath as well as a huge shower in the bathroom. There was a complementary coffee machine to use and unlimited free bottles of water included too. The room was fabulous and very clean. The breakfast buffet each morning was very good and the staff were quick in cleaning up and providing really good coffee once ordered. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant and was made to feel very welcome by the manager who went out of his way to speak personally to all of his guests not just me. Nothing seemed a problem for either him or his staff. Had a wonderful steak dinner. Overall, one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at. Fabulous!!!!

    Very friendly, serice orientated staff

    We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Da Vinci Hotel in Sandton. We had a small problem with our shower which was rectified speedily and successfully. The staff are very friendly and service-orientated. The Hotel is very modern, decorated in black and white and silver. Very different from any other hotel I have stayed in. The restaurant was very nice and the food very good. Very well placed hotel for very convenient shopping in the adjacent Sandton City Mall.

    Well situated and convenient”

    Very convenient for business travellers. Hotel is found within the nelson mandela complex which is not only convenient but safe. The only issue is that the access to the rooms has to go through the lobby level first. If you have stuff to carry then it might be an issue if they do not have staffs or porters to help you. Also beware, everything is about tips so if u need assistance, please do have some money to give. In case u have a car, there is a parking lot just annexed to the hotel. U need to ask the security guy. They will give u access and before u leave have ur ticket scan or stamp at the lobby area.

    Dear Michel, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review on Agoda. We truly appreciate all feedback from our valued guests. For the safety of our guests we have different lifts for patrons who make use of the mall facilities and another that is exclusively used to access the hotel rooms by our guests, and as an added layer of security each floor has a glass door that can only be accessed by guests who are staying on that floor. Please accept my sincerest apologies if this was not explained to you during your check-in. I have shared your comments regarding the lack of available porters with our Head Concierge who will be investigating the matter and taking the necessary corrective action as this is not the service standard we pride ourselves on. I am pleased to see that you find our location to be most convenient and safe for all our travellers and we look forward to welcoming you back to the DAVINCI in the near future.

    I had an amazing time with my bestie for her 30th”

    I absolutely loved our weekend stay at the Davinci it was 5 star all the way, was super impressed with the cleanness of the place, the restaurant, the room, the pool. The only downer was reception when we wanted to check in they asked for an ID which I had left in the car and i had no problem going to get back but upon return the guy also requested we go and get my friend's which he had failed to mention in the first place. Was so super annoyed coz walking up and down to the reception in our heels wasn't fun. I loved the breakfast great choices. Overall we had an amazing experience would recommend it to anyone

    Quality hotel in the heart of Johannesburg ”

    Great links to transport and shopping centre in the heart of Sandton. Quality hotel with clean rooms, friendly front of house staff and reception staff. The evening Room service staff still need a bit more training but it shouldn’t make a huge difference to your experience. Food quality and buffet / alacarte breakfast is fantastic and restaurant staff are very accommodating.

    Close to conference centre and Sandton Square with all the entertainment, dining, shopping and all other facilities within very short walking distances within the Sandton city complex

    i went to Da Vinci as i was attending a conference in the Sandton Conference Centre - that's just across the road and very convenient. The hotel itself is very nice, good comfort, clean and staff very helpful. No problem to park your car as valet parking is available free of charge to hotel guests 24 hours. Breakfast was a feast everyday.
