We stayed at the Southern Sun in May 2015, it was our first stop in South Africa. Located quite some distance from the Airport would suggest you organise a transfer, which we did. It is located in the City of Sandton which also is not Downtown Johanesburg. The area seemed quite safe and we felt comfortable walking around the area... More

I will not stay anywhere else in Sandton for my business trips. I have been coming to Southern Sun Katherine Street for about 10 years now. Yes the hotel is getting a bit dated BUT it has that home away from home feeling. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and cater for all your... More

The hotel facilities were a big surprise. Being a platinum card holder and having stayed at other hotels within the vicinity of the same brand, I asked myself why I had not been staying at this hotel all along. The is a small mall opposite the hotel and in close driving proximity to downtown Sandton. Definitely a place to stay... More

We stayed a night here before catching a flight and found the staff friendly as always, for the price, it is what you pay for. Good but not amazing, can't complain about anything though as the room was nice enough and breakfast was ok. Good as a stopover for a night.

Pleasant staff. Request outside room. Rooms in the hotel are noisy and the rooms let light into the room, not a comfortable night.

The hotel is in a very quiet area. The full English breakfast I ordered at the restaurant was always tasty and fresh. All the employees I interacted with during my stay were always friendly and helpful.

Home away from home ! I would recommend anyone to use the facilities at this hotel whenever in Johannesburg. The atmosphere is ideal for a very good visit. The members of staff are very friendly, and the location is well suited.
