“No Frills. Very Comfortable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

I stayed here because my regular hotel- when I visit Johannesburg- was full. I didn't regret it. Check in was smooth even at 1 am in the morning and my room was very comfortable. The free Wi-Fi was fast, but the daily limit of 500 Mb is a bit restrictive if you're going to be doing much more than email or a bit of surfing.
The bathroom is kind of integrated with the room. It isn't a problem of course if you're by yourself or with a significant other but else if you happen to be sharing a room, it might be a bit embarrassing.
Oh, and the breakfast next morning was excellent.

I was happy to find that this was one of the newer hotels in Johannesburg. The day rate was super affordable - especially for that location.

The room was super comfy, stylish and compact; and the staff were efficient and welcoming. Added bonus: the best casino in JHB is simply a few steps away :)

I'd definitely stay there again!

Very nice stay. Nice to wake up to the sound of the fountain. Felt like I was in Europe. Service was efficient and friendly and the breakfast was outstanding.
Very good place to stay for the busy business traveler.

This is my fourth stay at SunSquare and I've always had a great experience. The queen bed room has everything that you would need, especially a comfortable bed. The location of this hotel is fantastic, and to be honest the reason why the prices are what they are. Great restaurant downstairs, and them the Monte Casino complex at your feet. I've always found the staff to be attentive and polite, with any issues remedied. Today when I checked in the phone is my room wasn't working. Because it was a line fault the offered to move my room, including all of my stuff for me. Couldn't have asked for more, but chose to put up with a broken phone...hardly the end of the world.

I recently stayed with SunSquare Montecasino and was disappointed with the exerience, especially after staying with the other Southern Sun at Montecasino. Room was nice and sufficiently stocked however the dinner and breakfast was not what I expected. The waiters were not friendly and responsive to our needs.

We spent the weekend of 10-12 Jan 2014 at this hotel for my wife's birthday. The entire staff went out of their way to make our experience as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. We stayed at this hotel before and can highly recommend it for efficiency, friendliness, professionalism, value for money, location, etc.

We stayed at this hotel on New Years Eve. The room provides no value for money. It is tiny and feels like 2 star rated accommodation. The worst part of our stay was finding feces in the toilet!!! It was absolutely disgusting and we checked out immediately at 2am! Drove home instead of staying a second longer in such a pathetic environment. Do not waste your time or money by staying here. Johannesburg offers much better, CLEANER accommodation.
