    African Pride (Melrose Arch) in Johannesburg
    A very trendy hotel in a very trendy part of the golden city. African Pride offers stylish accommodations to its oh-so-stylish residents and, while the hotel itself boasts a magnificent restaurant dishing up Masterchef-class cuisine, the fact that it's surrounded by some of the trendiest dining spots in Joburg helps to solidify its place near the top of the charts.

    This last week I was a guest of PwC at a business function here. It was exceptional!
    The facilities, parking, refreshments, and general ambience of the venue made it feel very personal and special.

    I think I'm being somewhat biased here by not giving them a 5 rating as I am comparing them to Crystal Towers, which I feel is in a league of it's own.

    Nevertheless, I too fancy the modern entrance and lounge area. I love the floral arrangements at reception, unique designs.
    Whilst I won't rave about the view from the room, I will rave about the gourmet milkshakes.

    The buffet breakfast stands out for me, especially their mushroom sauce...yes...a breakfast mushroom sauce.

    I pretty much liked the wallpaper and frames in the room. At a glance, I almost thought the print on the carpet was real rose petals.

    Conveniently located in Melrose Arch with a hub of restaurants and shops, and easy access to the highway. A superb hotel, with exceptional staff from reception, to cleaners, to waitrons, to management. Beautiful room/suite, comfortable, personalised, warm, inviting. Fabulous evening dining. Good breakfast with oysters and salmon stealing the show. Lovely pool / outside area too. Only praise for this hotel and its staff.

    In an establishment that 'sets the bar', one can be hyper critical. The reception area, lounge, dining area and pool are simply peerless - trendy, interesting, and classy (the designers and decorators have done a fantastic job [to say nothing of the builders of course !]. Rooms in my view, are a bit 'tight' (although what else does one do but sleep, really ?) Lighting not conducive to reading (apart from the bathroom area) Otherwise great. I enjoyed the little 'touch of green [recycling]' - where glass vases in the bathroom screen held a beautiful long stemmed rose - made with talent and flair from old coca cola tins ! Really super shower / 'wet space', shower was about 1.3m square - so plenty of room ! Room probably better suited to the younger, yuppier person. HOWEVER, when it came to the dining room and breakfast, Protea have surpassed themselves - from the grey shades decor, to furniture, to a classy and unique menu, to the simply superb food, friendly and efficient service, this experience is truly world - beating, and a pride of Africa. I would be confident to entertain anyone from anywhere at this venue ! Take a bow, Protea !

    I've not stayed at this hotel but I do frequent the venue for either business meeting in the conference rooms or for the odd meeting in the lounge. This has to be one of the flagship hotels, perfectly located in Johannesburg with a diverse range of restaurants and nightlife. It's a pity the Gautrain does not stop here.

    Set in the heart of Melrose Arch, this is the "Pride" of the Protea Hotel group. Amazing restaurant, well trained staff and awesome rooms. You pay a bit of a premium but you are close to the best restauarants in Jo'burg.

    The 5-star African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel is a very trendy hotel in Jo'burgs upmarket Melrose Arch area. The decor is modern. The rooms are stylish and the amenities are state-of-the-art. The stunning swimming pool area is a haven amongst the high-rise buildings. The location is perfect for business travellers with meetings in the area. The menu offers a variety of sumptuous choices. I highly recommend this hotel.
