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. Check in staff are very pleasant and in general the location to Sandton is good. There is a problem with electricity in South Africa but this is taken care of by the hotel having a back up... More

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.

I have stayed in Tsogo Sun Katherine Street again this week. Over the years I have tried many hotels in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. Eventually it was Tsogo Sun Katherine Street that became my home away from home. I am one of the regulars here. I stay in this hotel an average of one week every month and that... More

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.

So I recently stayed at the Southern Sun on Katherine Street. To my surprise it was small and quaint. The rooms and bathrooms were fairly large. Basic amenities. Clean rooms. Comfortable beds. The breakfast could be better but the service was great! Such friendly staff members!

I have stayed at Katherine Street at least half-a-dozen times in the last few years, and love going back there. It is an older style of building, which has been kept up-to-date internally, and is set in beautifully maintained gardens. It is just on two floors (in contrast to the impersonal glass-and-steel monstrosities which have sprung up in the area).... More
