The Sandton Sun is a brilliant hotel. The facilities are excellent, and the location, near Mandela Square in Sandton, is perfect. However, the best asset for the hotel is the staff, who are truly excellent. Thank you! My wife and I will definitely be staying in Sandton Sun whenever we travel to Joburg for business or leisure.

I would highly recommend the Sandton Sun Hotel. The hotel was refurbished almost a year ago and this has provided a very elegant look and feel. One feels extremely special walking around such stylish environment. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Whilst we did not experience the main restaurant the San Deck as to be one of my favourite... More

Everything about this hotel is flawless. The rooms are spacious, clean, modern with plenty of sunlight. The affordability for such luxury within the area is welcoming. The service is impeccable and prompt. The Sandton Sun struck the right chord with us upon check-in. We were close to everything from our hotel room. Direct access to a plethora of shops, ATMs,...

The Sandton Sun is an excellent hotel, good service, lovely size rooms, well situated in the heart of Sandton and with direct access to the Mall. Friendly receptionists. Breakfast is another experience with a good variety of food and helpful staff.

Excellent location, right next to the Sandton Conference Center. Very good service - personnel are very attentive. Beautiful deck, outside the restaurant, which is ideal for sundowner drinks. One small negative, some of the cooked food is very greasy and calorific!

My stay at Sundton Hotel was very good and recommendable to friends and high standard seekers people! Unfortunally nobody from the staff could communicate directly with my family since just me speaks English, and although the geografical distance between RSA and Mozambique none staff speaks Portuguese, our native language.

Sandton Sun was the chosen hotel for a friend wedding at the conference center. With easy access to and from the venue made the most suitable choice. The hotel location overall is excellent. The breakfast has a huge variety and it well worth it. Unfortunately, the room service slow service was the only disadvantage.
