Located just next to O. R. Tambo International Airport, the Southern Sun provides a great place to recover from that long flight (17 hours from the States) or if you want to be close and rested for an early flight.
Although small, the grounds are immaculately maintained, with blooming flowers and grass without a blade out of place. There are also a lot of things to see around the airport, which serves as a hub of activity.
The restaurant was excellent and provided a great selection for picky eaters and for kids, as well as an acceptable wine list. We ate most of our meals at the hotel while waiting for our next flights to Mozambique.
The lobby is very large and modern. The fitness area is adequate, but not too large. The staff is exceptionally friendly and happy, may be more so than other hotels we visited.
The rooms were very modern and super clean and fresh, but average in size compared to US hotels. The furniture has a modern look and feel with lots of white. The bathrooms are above average in size with very large walk in showers that have an opaque window between the shower and the master bedroom (see photo). The suites are nice.
One of the best benefits is the proximity to the airport.More
