We stayed here overnight between two flights and it seems they are only used to business travellers, as service was almost not existing and handling was quite difficult. Only the breakfast made our stay a bit better.

From checking in, to checking out, the staff was wonderful. Our room was very comfortable, but the high lite was the buffet. We loved the wide selection of food all expertly prepared. The location is convenient to the airport, and when we travel this way again, we'll be sure to stay at the Southern Sun.

The general ambience of the hotel was good. However the experience we had on arrival was a bit of a put off as the gentleman manning the driveway by the entrance was a bit rude. We were driving as a family and wanted to drop off my family by the door and then drive away but he would not take... More

I spent a night at the Southern Sun OR Tambo as I had an early flight the next morning. I managed to catch the free shuttle bus to the hotel, which was prompt and efficient. The hotel itself is very basic, and I couldn't imagine staying there for an extended period. It is convenient for a short stay when you... More

Very pleasant hotel at the airport. Offers regular shuttle service to terminal which is close by. Room was nice. Hotel is relaxing place with friendly staff. The restaurant offers a variety of choices for dinner and has an extensive breakfast buffet included with the room. Quality of the food is very good.

My one week stay at the hotel was very peaceful, excellent and efficient. I liked more breakfast meals and quicker checking out process. Reception was wonderful especially checking out. Transportation service was good.

Stayed here between flights, so we weren't looking for anything special, but the hotel was clean, safe and had a good dinner buffet. One thing to note - you can't walk there from the airport terminal but have to get a shuttle bus. The bus only takes a couple of minutes and travels a few hundred meters, but you can't... More

This hotel is a great option for a one night stopover in Johannesburg. There is a shuttle bus to and from the airport at regular intervals. Staff were all really friendly, the food was great and overall good value for money.
