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

Stayed here for 3 nights. Booked the 2 bedroom suite. Breakfast is average and being halaal I guess makes the breakfast options a lot less. None the less, cereals, fruits, juices etc were enough to start us off for the day. The pool area is a bit small but there are one or two places to sit around and enjoy... More

The rooms were good but the staff tried to con us out of our proper booking of the superior rooms and when they realized we knew they offered a free 'upgrade' to the rooms we had paid for in the first place. Food was average in the restaurant. Nothing to write home about. Located in a quiet neighborhood so not... More
