Emperors Palace: Fit For An Emperor
Updated: Feb 22, 2019
Located near the O.R.Tambo Airport in Johannesburg, the Emperors Palace is a property that cannot go unnoticed. The total area is divided into four hotels, Peermont D’oreale Grande is a five star property, Mondior is a four star hotel and the Metcourt Suites and Metcourt are three star properties. The best thing about Emperors Palace is the fact that you get to choose the type of property you wish to stay in within the premises.

This is a four star property with 150 spacious rooms and suites. It is ideal for business and leisure travelers.
If you compare Peermont Metcourt to the four and five star properties, you might feel like you are being tricked! It is a three star property which has a private pool terrace. The reception is huge and welcoming. Since it is a business hotel, it remains packed throughout the year. There are 348 rooms which are ideal for a couple. If there are three adults, you might have to book a Family room because there is no option of an extra bed in a room. All the rooms are same in size and equipped with modern amenities. If you are used to a spacious room and luxurious bathroom in a three star property, you will be disappointed here. The rooms have very small bathrooms which as are good as those in a hostel.
