RECOMMENDATIONS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

Start off your morning with breakfast in our Atrium restaurant. Guests can enjoy sumptuous international cuisine in a five star environment. We have a continental breakfast buffet fully prepared and features a wide selection of cold and hot dishes. We also have an egg menu available so that we can serve any egg items fresh from the kitchen. After a sumptuous breakfast you must definitely go on our jogging trail.

AFTERNOON

If you are new to our fabulous City, you must definitely enjoy a cultural experience. With our history and large variety of changing events there is always something happening in Johannesburg. We are located next to the Sandton Convention Centre where a host of enjoyable events are held year round. We encourage you to visit Soweto, because here you can gain some insight on the apartheid years and you get to visit Mandela`s former house which is now a museum. The Apartheid Museum is a must and stopping in at Gold Reef City for an educational gold mine tour is a special experience.

EVENING

Nothing beats having sundowners & snacks on our magnificent pool deck. Here you can relax after a busy day and watch the sunset while enjoying an ice cold drink or two. If you feel up to going out you must definitely pay Montecasino a visit. Whether you’re looking for the thrill of gaming, a memorable night at one of our theatres, an evening of side-splitting comedy, thrilling live concerts on our stages, magical events in our outdoor spaces, sports screenings on our big screen, fine dining or fast food, luxurious hotel stays, shopping, the latest movie releases or fun and games for the whole family, Montecasino is Gauteng’s No. 1 entertainment destination.

INSIDER TIPS

LOCAL CULTURE

Water

South Africa's tap water is safe to drink and is regarded as one of the ten best purified waters in the world.


Safety

As in any other big cities in the world, it is not advisable to carry large amounts of cash around or wear ostentatious jewellery. Be discreet when carrying cameras, video equipment and mobile phones.


Tipping is at your discretion. Ten to Fifteen percent is customary.


Transport

We offer a complimentary shuttle to and from the Gautrain station. The Gautrain is a convenient and easy way to travel to and from the airport as well as other popular destinations such as Johannesburg City Centre, Rosebank and Pretoria. We do not recommend using local buses or minibus taxis. Ask our assistance in booking the hotel's chauffeur service or accredited taxis through the Concierge desk.


Mobile Phones

Although the hotel rooms have telephones, South Africa has very few public telephones so it is advisible to bring your mobile phone (called a cellphone locally). If you are going to be in South Africa for some time, investigate the possibility of buying a local SIM card so that you can make calls at local rates


DID YOU KNOW ?

Johannesburg

Johannesburg is also known as Joburg and to locals as Joey's or Jozi. It is referred to as the City of Gold and is the largest city in South Africa by population. Johannesburg has the largest economy of any metropolitan region in Sub-Saharan Africa


Sport

The South African people are very passionate about sport. The local community is particularly proud of their rugby, soccer and cricket teams and are popular spectator sports.


Cultural Hub

Johannesburg is the cultural hub in South Africa and has a wide variety of cultural venues, making it a prominent area for many creative and cultural industries. It is home to the National School of Arts and the South African Ballet Theatre as well as the Apartheid Museum and other prominent cultural landmarks


Nelson Mandela Square

Nelson Mandela Square, formerly Sandton Square, was renamed in 2004 after the previous South African president and freedom fighter. It is located across the skywalk from the hotel as well as Sandton City and the Sandton Convention Centre. A must to capture yourself with the bronze statue of Mandela in the Square.


WHAT TO PACK

Don't overpack!

Johannesburg Sandton Towers has access to all necessities and amenities so it is not a concern should you forget anything. Try not to pack too much so you can leave room for souvenirs and all the Sandton City mall shopping.


Clothes

Although our summers are quite warm, it is always advisable to bring a sweater or jacket with you for the evenings. Afternoon thundershowers are common in Summer while the Winters are generally dry. Jackets and gloves are recommended for winter as temperatures can drop in the early mornings and evenings.


Money

Exchange some currency into South African rands before you leave preferrably enough for airport incidentals and transportation to the hotel. You can pay hassle free with your credit and debit card at the hotel and in most shops. The hotel also offers quick local currency conversions.


Camera / Phone with Camera

South Africa has beautiful views as well as many local attractions and cultural activities that are a must to be captured on camera for a lifetime of memories
