We stayed at the Tsogo Sun for two nights, the hotel is conveniently located, adjacent to the upmarket Hyde Park Shopping Centre. There is also secure covered parking with direct access into the hotel and the shopping centre, which has many good restaurants. We were not happy with our first room so reception moved us immediately to a brighter room with views over Sandton.
The service in the restaurant and around the pool is excellent. The sushi menu is extensive and the breakfast buffet and menu are superb. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the gym has all the latest equipment.
Just one negative, we asked reception for directions to the airport and unfortunately we were given printed Google directions which were incorrect! If we had not left the hotel early we would have missed our flight back to the UK. We had to ask a motorist on the busy N1 for directions, extremely dangerous on a busy freeway! There doesn't seem to be a concierge service at the hotel and reception could not help us locate a well known design centre. Our afternoon was wasted, as we could not find the centre after another set of incorrect directions were given to us by reception.
