I cannot say enough about just how good this place is, we ended up staying here under difficult circumstances, and every single member of staff was first class. Hoxani the receptionist took our call at the airport and was very pleasant at all times. The food is first class and available at almost any time from 6.00 am to 11.00 pm. If you are staying in Johannesburg this is THE place.
We also had a tour guide Lebo, who cared for our every need including tours of Soweto downtown Johannesburg and all points in between. LEBO 27-82-7227036

We are not satisfied with our stay at this hotel. We arrived by car and were asked to park in the very back of the lot and were not allowed to pull up front to unload our luggage (only after insisting I parked in the middle of the road to unload)

The receptionist checking us in was unfriendly, if not rude!

After checking in, we found several things broken/dirty in our room: Mini Bar couldn't be opened (not a big problem, since it was empty anyways except for two bottles of water), hair in the sink, drain of the sink broken.

Overall the room was rather old and not what is expected of a souther sun hotel.

We decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant. The first three waiters and waitresses ignored us, until the fourth offered us a table right next to the open door, which we friendly declined and asked to be seated more in the middle of the restaurant. After a shrug of the shoulders, we were seated. We were served by waiters who were extremely arrogant! Always seeming to laugh about us, we felt very unwelcome.

The food was okay (4/10), but you have to keep in mind that for the same money there are tones of good restaurants near by like the Bull Run or the Butcher.

Overall they stay was very disappointing and unsatisfactory. I would recommend this hotel to nobody, especially considering the price. Money for value is awful (1/10). The only positive thing to say about this hotel is that its location is pretty good.

Staying at Katherine Street is always a pleasure, I love it, the kids love it. It really is a Home-away from home. The check in and out process is always very swift. The staff is ALWAYS very friendly and professional.

I have stayed at this hotel many times, simply because from the top to the bottom, the service is outstanding. Rooms are always clean and functional.

Housekeeping is on its 'toes' All the time. The location is accessable to Sandton City and the Gautrain Station. There is also a small shopping centre with Spar as anchor.

Peace and quite gauranteed. Stay in the suites, they comfortable and spacious.

I always choose this hotel when on a business trip to JHB. The rooms are spacious and the breakfast is good. The location is perfect for someone seeing clients in the Sandton area. The dinner and lunch menu is not the best compared to other hotels that I have stayed at, there is limited variety to choose from.

A really nice hotel with very helpful staff. The location is the greatest plus. Just walk into Sandton Mall, with lots of restaurants and cinemas. Rooms are nice, the buffet breakfast is spectacular, room service also great.
