The welcome

When I checked out The Radisson Blu, Gautrain and saw how close it was to Sandton city, I got nervous because when I go away, I like to go to a place away from town. But, immediately when I arrived at the location, I didn’t feel like I was in a busy business district. It was tranquil; just the way I like it. I got a warm welcome from the staff that helped check me into my room.

Soft sheets and a comfy bed allow peaceful sleep. Free Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV kept my sister and I connected. This was my favourite part about my whole stay; I didn’t even want to leave the room.

My sister had the lamb shank, which she finished within minutes. I on the other hand, had their lamb curry because I love spicy food, which was scrumptious. The restaurant has a romantic feel, with a beautiful view of Sandton City.

The hotel also has a business feel about it. I can picture politicians and businesspeople living there for as long as their stay is in Johannesburg. Who would blame them? If you’re not a politician or business person, this hotel can still be for you. You can go bask in the sun next to the swimming pool and for fitness fanatics, there’s a fitness centre overlooking Sandton.

Why Radisson Blu

The location makes it the best place, it's right in the hub of Sandton, so it’s great for a quick getaway. Whether you want to take the whole family or just enjoy some me-time, The Radisson Blu is the best place for you.
