During my business trip to South Africa i usually stay at Sothern Sun in Katherine Street and every time the stay is enjoyable. Quality in general is high and food at the restaurant is very tasteful. Strategic position in Sandton and very closed to Gautrein Station.

I've been recently at this hotel for 5 nights, my room was big enough, clean, comfortable and equipped with necessary facilities. Bathroom was big and fitted with both shower and bath tub!! Early check in has been accepted without extra charge. Restaurant is good (grilled beef is the one of the best) and cheap, service is good too.

Nice place to stay close to Sandton City, 30 minutes from airport and 30 minutes downtown. It's a quite place with garden. Service is very goog, super friendly staff. Sorry now is winter in Joburg and I couldt enjoy my breakfast in the beautiful garden. Will be there soon again.

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.
