“Great location”
Reviewed July 31, 2012


I stayed at the Sun Square a few times already. The location is perfect. I stayed there for business. Breakfast at the Sun Square is excellent. The staff members are very polite, friendly and helpful.

With Monte Casino on our doorstep, it made it very convenient for dinner choices and entertainment. My husband had plenty to do during the weekends, whilst I was a work.

This hotel is definately a good choice whilst visiting Johannesburg.

Stayed August 2011, traveled on business

I stayed here for a short business trip over 4 nights, having never been to Jo'burg before I didn't know what to expect.

The actual Montecasino complex is quite nice for maybe a night or two after that it feels a bit claustrophobic, there are lots of places to eat and everyone we encountered were friendly and service was excellent. In fact what stood out was how friendly everyone was!

The room in SunSquare was very clean but a little odd in layout and I agree with previously reviewers you would need to know someone very well to share these rooms. The shower and toilet are in what can only be described as cubicles which open directly into the room. The glass wasn't completely see through but certainly wouldn't need much imagination!

I used the safe for everything including laptop etc as the door to my room didn't feel too secure and on one day I found another pass on the side, I'm sure it was someone cleaning the room but wanted to be sure my belongings were safe. That said I felt very safe at the complex.

Breakfast is excellent, there is a egg station and so much cooked/cold choice you wouldn't get bored.

My room looked over the fountain in the Square and on one night the music kept me awake, not really sure why they play it constantly!

All in all a good choice for a business trip for a couple of nights.

Rooms quite small and do not have a bath. Also if you like quiet, ask to have a room that does NOT overlook the courtyard area. My room overlooked the musical fountain which played extremely loud music until 10.30pm. Convenient location for all the restaurants in the complex. Breakfast excellent and staff very friendly.WiFi charged via vouchers but seemed to have a lot of problems with the signal. Would really suggest people use the safe - it is free!

Room Tip: As above, room overlooking courtyard can be very noisy.

Stayed here for Three nights, from a Business viewpoint it was Ok. Rooms were ample, Internet was chargeable, Breakfast was good, staff were helpful. Noted from many others that room security was not brilliant. The door in my room did not close unless you pushed/pulled it hard!!

Quite liked the restaurants around the "Italian" Courtyard" Good choice plenty of options. Food in the Hotel Restaurant was good but a bit limited.

Location was good for us as we were visiting a lot of firms within 15 minutes, just be aware the morning traffic trying to get onto the Motorways can be very busy.

If you go on a weekend and there is a big sports event on be aware that they mount a big screen in the Italian Courtyard and it gets noisy particularly if the BOKS are playing

Room Tip: Higher the better

Stayed there for a single night.
Good location, casino, cinema and shopping nearby.
Rooms are ok. I kinda like the bathroom integration, but in reality the rooms are small.
Friendly and helpful staff.
Breakfast ok.

A fairly standard nice hotel. Everything is fine and they really provide everything you expect in a hotel. It is priced accordingly. The rooms and modern, clean, but a bit small. The breakfasts are quite good. The location is wonderful on the edge of the casino. You feel really safe and there is plenty to do with the open amphitheatre, shopping and restaurants. There is obviously the Casino but we only walked through it once. You don’t have to visit the casino to enjoy the facility and area. A bit of an oasis in the otherwise difficult Joburg environment.
The tours from reception were quite limited, dearer and not as good as we had previously arranged from other hotels. Perhaps we would have been better to prearrange these before arriving at the hotel.
This hotel does not have its own pool, you need to walk to one of the other nearby/adjoining hotels. We didn’t bother so if planning a dip, you should investigate this more.
Staff were generally good and on one occasion helped us well beyond our expectations. We were very grateful.
In all. OK, many more pluses than minus’ and we would stay here again for the price.
