    Loved everything. luxury all around but in a sophisticated (Old english) way. Luxury bedsheets, cutlery etc. Huge rooms, huge bathroom, delicious bath gels; you couldn't ask for more. 5 Star in every way. Wonderful staff especial Zack at the reception. Food is excellent and well priced, the breakfast in the sunny room is such a great way to start the day. The general manager too made sure to ask all is well every time we met. 5 star treatment all the way and at an affordable price.

    Loved everything, nothing negative to write about.

    The coffee served at breakfast, I have a feeling is Nescafe. The taped music also gets a bit much after a while.

    The suites of this hotel are total luxury. The living area is large with a dinning room, living area, fresh fruit upon arrival, flat screen TV and a guest bathroom. The bedroom was excellent, a completely comfortable bed, flat screen TV, private patio attached to my ground floor suite. The main bathroom, had very large bathtub plus a separate shower with wall jets. Toiletries are first class. Towel warmer is the largest I've ever seen. The business center had a state of the art computer and printer for guest use at no charge. Breakfast was included and was excellent. WiFi free with a very good signal. Everything at this hotel is top notch. It is easily the most luxurious boutique hotel in Jburg. A great find for the price, it was cheaper than all the other hotels in the Rosebank area. The Gautrain is a few steps away, the staff will meet you there if you let them know. A wonderful shopping mall in next door and the staff if great.

    This is a very minor design flaw, only one electrical outlet in the suite for recharging all my gadgets.

    This was easily my favorite stay in a hotel in Gauteng, we love weekend getaways to joburg and we do them regularly, The Monarch's design and fabulous interior took our breath away, but what made our visit the greatest was the staff, upon arrival, Jan met us at reception and chatted to us about the reason for our visit, and then surprising us with a bottle of fine sparkling wine in our room. They were all so accommodating and friendly, we felt right at home. Upon arriving in our room, we noticed that it was a non smoking room, we phoned reception to ask if they offer smoking rooms and in about 5 minutes we were in our new room, which was definitely a much more luxurious and expensive room, so without asking we got upgraded. We had room service and breakfast in our room; they did so much for us through our entire stay, and as Sunday morning arrived, and we got a phone call from reception, telling us that we are free to stay as long as we want, as the checkout time of 11am, didn't matter. We stayed until 3pm, sitting on the veranda, going to nearby attractions and walking the beautiful streets of Rosebank. The Monarch Hotel has a policy that they don’t allow any under 12's. Some people might not like this, but we totally loved this, as there were no disturbances, and they kept a certain old world charm, where the grown-ups are allowed to taste wine, smoke cigars and delight in cocktail hour at 11am. There is simply not one thing that I would want to change about our stay at this Fabulous Hotel. Thanks again Jan and your team.

    Exceptional interior finishes, decor and art. No other hotel in Johannesburg, offers the quality of finishes and original art, this hotel has. Yet, it costs a fraction of hotels with far lesser facilities and worse locations... pity, it will appeal to a small, select group of sophisticated customers.

    Everything is great.
