“Great short break in Hyde Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

My frind and I booked into this hotel as it was close to the wedding we were attending on the weekend. On arrival we were early so sat upsairs in the bar which has an awesome view of the surroundings. we were not there very long before being told the rooms were ready (11am). As we had travelled from the UK and had been on the long flight this was great news.

The rooms are tasteful and have everything you need for a normal business hotel.there is a also a gym on the top floor which is well stocked with equipment.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff from getting ur suit dry cleaned and back in time for the wedding to arranging our various taxis to sandton city and the surrounding areas. It is also attached directly to the Hyde park corner shopping centre so easy to get anything you want if you need to take a break from the hotel.

A big thank you to the reception, chaffeur and cleaning staff for a great stay.

We spent four days at the Sun Hyde Park and found the staff to be very friendly and extremely accommodating. One of the front desk managers even located and purchased an electrical converter (not any adaptor) for our medical devices. The hotel is very modern and now offers free Internet access in all rooms. The breakfast is delicious and provides a variety of offerings that should meet everyone's tastes. The room was tastefully decorated, complete with a flat screen TV and personal toiletries. The bar area is quite lively at night, if that is your thing and the hotel's connection to a mall enables one to shop without having a concern about the weather, as well as to access to a number of wonderful restaurants. It was too cold for us to use the outdoor pool, but it looked inviting and clean. The hotel has a modest fitness center with modern equipment (did not use it). The hotel is located in a northern part of the city and is just a short cab ride from many of the city's attractions. At 10 rands to the dollar when we were there, this hotel is quite a value, especially if you choose to include the breakfast option.

Wonderful stay, quiet room with view of city. Breakfast is fresh and tasty, great variety and good bread. Safe underground parking. A great pool bar with view for pre-dinner drinks. Many good restaurants and shops in Shopping centre underneath the hotel. All in all a very good value for money stay. The hotel is good for a romantic week-end break in Johannesburg. It is probably a good business hotel during the week as well. We liked the huge, extra long, king size beds and the modern bathrooms.

Room Tip: Superior rooms have great view over Sandton or Randburg

We are pleased that we delivered an excellent 5 star experience for your one night stay.

Thank you for taking the time to, in a few words explain exactly the view we would like future visitors to Southern Sun Hyde park to have in mind when deciding on our hotel, for a business or a leisure trip to Sandton, Johannesburg.

We would really like you to make use of our sunset cocktail deck and bar again next time youre in our neighbourhood, especially this time of year with the great sunsets

Stayed here 3 nights, 2 separate occasions. It attaches to a mall in Sandton; handy for running to replace things, eat a meal, or get some grocery items at the PIck and Pay. The breakfast buffet was lovely--everything you could want. Room service was good. Check-in/out smooth as was bell service. Quiet. In -room amenities are very nice. First time I've seen free cookies. Didn't try them. Recommended.

A faultless stay at a very convenient location.
Excellent staff and exemplary services that they provided.
Dinner in the restaurant was an unexpected delight - this is not a 'normal' Hotel Restaurant if your in the shopping centre and are looking for a far better than average meal - by pass the 'good' mall restaurants and head for the hotels restaurant.
The room i had was excellent - in layout, size, condition and amenities.

Located in an the "upmarket" suburb of Hyde Park, the Southern Sun Hyde Park hotel is a great location to have sundowners or evening drinks after dinner at one of Hyde Park mall's many amazing restaurants.

With a bar area overlooking western Johannesburg, it's the perfect setting to watch breathtaking African sunsets in an urban jungle setting.

Another great plus about it being a hotel, is that if you've had too much of a party in the bar, the opportunity to grab a room to crash for the night is available. It's a bit on the pricey side, but with an amazing breakfast included in the room price, it's well worth it.

We found the room to be as one would expect, with the bathroom being very decent (we had a shower and bath in the room that we occupied). There was also a king-sized bed with ample hard & soft cushions - hard for me, soft for the wife; which to her was a winner.

The hotel is located in close proximity to many of Jozi's hottest night spots, so if you're planning on staying over a night or two while in transit...I'd highly recommend the hotel.

We found the staff very friendly, extremely competent and accommodating, even after only requesting a room close on midnight.
