Michelangelo Hotel, Johannesburg

Deluxe - ££££


The Michelangelo Hotel sits right in the heart of the richest part of South Africa: Sandton. The iconic building oozes class and sophistication, which matches its affluent surroundings. It’s not too far from Nelson Mandela Square, which commemorates the city’s heritage and is also a vibrant hub of activity; it shouldn’t be missed.

The entire hotel is built in a Renaissance style and includes many sculptures in the manner of that period. Every room is bound to leave a big impression on you. There are a few accommodation options for you to choose from; whether you go for a deluxe or superior room, or an executive, premier or presidential suite you’ll be greeted with a comfortably elegant room that has a sense of grandeur and class.


Within the Michelangelo there’s a lovely swimming pool where you can relax after a long day exploring Johannesburg. It’s right next to the gym, and the glass dome above it brings in beautiful natural light.

The Michelangelo Spa is also a great place to relax. It has beautiful views over the city and focuses on healing remedies for both your physical and mental self.

There is one restaurant in the hotel, the Piccolo Mondo, which is amazing and serves a range of traditional dishes with a modern spin. Thanks to its position near Nelson Mandela Square, the hotel isn’t far from some of the best restaurants in South Africa – so definitely try a few of them too.

Why We Love It
