I would stay here again
The hotel and the staff were greatly accommodating. The breakfast provided to guest in the morning was absolutely delicious and filled with all the morning favorites from pastries, eggs your way, fruit, yogurt, fresh juice, coffee, tea, sausage, etc. I really appreciated the staff's hospitality. I do wish the surrounding area was better but Maboneng is about a 10 min drive. I would stay at The Reef again.

This hotel is a average. The neighborhood is much to be desired, we did not feel comfortable walking anywhere from the hotel. It is difficult to get food as everything closes early and will not deliver. We were able to pay Hotel staff to go pick up a pizza for us one night. They have a restaurant attached but the choices are slim, and they did not show us the separate menu that was not displayed on the wall. I would not return to this hotel.

Friendly clean hotel, with minor aggravations.
Nice hotel. Lovely open air bar on the 15th floor. Good wine, and food. Hotel restaurant was closed over the holiday, so only a "coffee shop" open, but good food. Staff very friendly, but quite incompetent. Took two or three people to check in and out, but they were always smiling. Local neighborhood OK, safe to walk in daylight, I as an elderly single lady did not try it at night.

First time in Johannesburg
Stayed at the hotel for 1 day each on 2 separate occasions. First time, there were toiletries missing from bathroom and wifi wasn't working properly. Second time, the room was on the 15th floor and I could hear music in my room from the party taking place on the rooftop till 2am - the room walls provide no sound insulation. Otherwise, the staff was helpful and efficient and the complimentary breakfast was "da bomb".
