I have always loved Katherine Street for the provacy it affords me. One can actually go in and out without being seen by anyone except the security guard. The units are also independent and big enough for one to be able to make a long stay without feeling trapped or suffocated. The environment, although in the busy Sandton, makes it... More

I enjoy staying at this hotel as it is very easily accessible from all major roads especially if you do not stay in this province or your knowledge of Johannesburg and Sandton is limited. It is small enough to be cosy and intimate without the feel of bigger hotels where you are lost in the crowd and just become a... More

Within close proximity to all that Sandton has to offer (ie Gautrain, business district, entertainment). Clean rooms, modern decor, excellent and friendly service, delicious food, great value for money...what more can you ask for?

We stayed here recently with a young adult son. We picked this place because it had a 2 bedroom suite so he did not have to have a separate room, and because the location was close to shopping/Gautrain station. Also, we needed a place with a restaurant because we were arriving in the evening and did not feel comfortable going... More

This must be one of the best Southern Sun hotels. The concept is great and service is always very good.As a business hotel I always like to visit this place and have also been here when on holiday.The concept of having the rooms as apartments is great.

Check in to be more efficient. Consider having and taking phone call bookings outside the check in area(back office). It is not good reception when you come in and the person is on the phone taking a booking.

Dear Fundi, Thank you for your review of the hotel. I am delighted to see that you enjoyed your overall stay with us. We have a dedicated reservations office in the back, but some times guests ask to speak to the reception person they know to make their booking exactly to their liking. We sure hope to see you back... More

Spent three nights here while on business travel to South Africa. The staff are very friendly and courteous, the showers have tremendous water pressure, and the restaurant serves a hearty breakfast. The only downsides about the hotel are the terrible internet connection and air conditioner that barely cooled the room even when set on the lowest setting. The hotel is... More

The hotel is very different from most around Sandton. You have a homely warm feeling whenever one arrives at the hotel. From the Staff that is courteous to the type of accommodation. One gets a suit for a price of a room with good wifi connectivity. The parking arrangement is also unique to a hotel. One can easily park at... More
