“Good hotel”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

I stayed in Room 349 at the Southern Sun Hyde Park hotel in Sandton. The hotel is a short drive outside of central Johannesburg in a nice, upscale neighborhood. The hotel is adjacent to a shopping mall. My room had a comfortable king size bed with an assortment of comfortable pillows. The room had individually controlled A/C, a flat screen TV, a desk and comfortable chair. The lighting in the room was good. The room was quiet and dark, with heavy black-out drapes. The bathroom was quite large, as was the shower, which had a large rain shower head. In-room free wi-fi was available and was adequate for checking e-mails. The hotel restaurant was quite good, as was the buffet breakfast. The hotel also has a pool and (I believe) a small fitness center, but I didn't visit either one. I had arranged with the hotel to pick me up at the airport and deliver me to the hotel. They were responsive to my e-mails and their representative was waiting for me at the airport with my name on a sign in spite of my flight being 2 hours late. I would definitely recommend this hotel were I ever to stay in Johannesburg again.

I appreciated the receptiveness of the reception personnel .But during dinner on the first day the restuarant personnel were not receptive and we had to leave the restuarant and eat somewhere else.Please you need to improve in this area

The Hotel features direct access to the Hyde Park corner shopping mall. It has a nice pool terrace with Bar. The rooms are usually clean and modern furnished. Personal is attentive. Sandton is about a 15 Car drive away.

The entire set up of the hotel is awesome. The locality is perfect as it is attached to the tasteful Hyde Park Corner shopping mall. The personnel are very hands on and are diligent with all requests timeously and professionally. With just one restaurant - there are not many choices but as you walk through to the mall you can be spoilt for choice. there is excellent security . the rooftop swimming pool, bar and lounge area is a stunning area to unwind after a long day. the waitrons are just so efficient . The restaurant BiCE has a stunning ambiance and bookings are essential - it is brilliant fine dining ,( prices can be a bit steep), - just loved it. The service at the restaurant is super-awesome- the waitrons ( Mandy, Sinethemba and Mthandazo) personify and deliver excellent professional service - vigilant at all times and serving delicious freshly prepared food . It was a good stay and the hotel is a well hidden gem for the busyness of Johannesburg

Southern Sun Hyde Park Hotel is one of the few I have experienced to seamlessly provide unobtrusive, genial service amid a strictly serene ambience - much unaffected by the surrounding bustle of an urban setting. Its graceful charm is as much therapy to the soul as its chic interior, whose centrepiece is a pool deck bar endowed with paronamic views that stretch heavenwards...
