When you arrive at the Michaelangelo you will be greeted by smartly uniformed doormen and escorted upstairs to their stunningly marbled reception area. Light floods in from the central cupola and the beautiful centrepiece of the hotel - a statue, pool and fountain - is visible from the balcony.
The glass lifts, affording a sensational view, whisk you to your room, where all comforts await you. A marbled bathroom well-stocked with toiletries is standard, as is air-conditioning, and all decor is richly coloured, with a modern take on renaissance style.
All rooms feature Florentine-style fabrics, supremely comfortable beds, gilded lamps and neo-classical prints. Having unpacked, you might wish to eat at The Piccolo Mondo, which serves traditional Mediterranean fare, or alternatively, refresh yourself at the Il Ritrovo lounge and bar which is extremely popular with local society.
The Michaelangelo offers unparalleled shopping opportunities. It is situated on Sandton Square (those rooms which face the square are perfect for watching the world go by) and is in the centre of the Sandton City Shopping Centre which is one of the premier shopping malls in the country. The helpful hotel staff can book beauty treatments and hair appointments, or you might like to use the on-site gym, sauna or steambath. In addition, the lovely hotel pool is open 24 hours a day.
The Michaelangelo is not only excellently placed for business purposes but also offers marvellous shopping and relaxation facilities. It is the perfect base for a trip to Johannesburg.
