“Nice location and a good business hotel”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

Enjoyed the stay though it was quite a distance from my office. Good business hotel with a great restaurant. I am vegetarian and the chef was very nice to cook me a good Indian dinner (esp when not on the menu). They had taken the extra effort to please me, speaks really good of them. Concierge organised for the transport and the stay was very pleasant.

This hotel is definitely well located in Sandton, with a shopping mall across the road.

I loved the layout of the hotel, very beautiful. Clean and tidy rooms.

The staff were friendly and helpful, great service all round.

I will definitely go back here :)

Well laid out - has a resort ambience. Comfortable and spacious rooms. Clean and well maintained.

Staff was courteous and helpful. I had to call them a few times to get my internet connection to work, and they were always willing to help and could quickly resolve my problems.

I didn't know quite what to expect when travelling to SA, however any concerns I did have were soon quashed by the staff at Southern Sun Hotel on Katherine Street. A great hotel in a prime location with gorgeous food & exceptional service. I would certainly visit again.

Many thanks for making me feel so welcome.

We stayed at this hotel for the World Cup Final, and it was brilliant! Previous reviews mentioned it wasn't within walking distance of anywhere, but ithe Nelson Mandela square was only a 10 minute walk away or if you prefer, (a must if its dark) a 50 Rand taxi drive away.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful, and even though we had one restless night where the boiler was banging continuously (which was fixed first thing), and having to endure a cold shower (again, fixed straight away) I would highy recommend this hotel!!

Walking into the hotel reception - it has almost a colonial feel about it. The rooms themselves are clean and of a decent size. The best part of the room was the bathroom - the power shower must be one of the best i have ever seen at any hotel.
Breakfast was included in our room rate - and there was a wide enough choice to satisfy most tastes (both continental and hot). The weather was fairly warm when we were there so it was always nice to have breakfast outside in the morning. The restaurant within the hotel is OK - though there is a wider choice in the nearby Sandton City Mall which is within walking distance of the hotel (though walking is not recommended after dark). Security was visible. Overall a decent hotel.
