“80s90s delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Spacious room, good bed with good quality linens/pillows, amenities and furniture, good size beige bathroom and good water pressure separate shower cubicle.....tv good channel selection (more european channels would be a welcome addition)....internet good connectivity.
In general very good sleep quality and quietness of the room despite same building work happening during the day in the near by surroundings..
Interesting, welcoming nice terrace with open fires to meet for drinks under the stars, good swimming pool area, gym shared with the Intercontinental Hotel (temporarily) small but well equipped...in general a good Hotel establishment, perfectly located with good amenities and friendly staff in need of a few touches of general maintenance which by the look of it it is work in progress...

The staff were amazing from the young lady that checked us in, the lady in the business suite where we waited while our room was prepared. The porter who brought up our bags and gave us a brief tour higlighted how good our stay was going to be. Being from New Zealand, i was really looking forward to that oh so popular african hospitality. The highlight for my husband and i was the breakfast team, wow!!! From the hostess to the young man Norman who served us on 4 of the 6 occasions we had breakfast, he remembered that i drank apple or cranberry juice and my husband drank orange, it was a small detail but each time we set down he would bring our juice(s) without the need to ask what we even wanted!! All i can say is when i come back to South africa i am definately coming back to the Sandton Sun, and i will be sticking to the Tsogo brand, i have even joined the rewards programme. This hotel definately made the start of our honey moon very memorable.. Thank you so much, i will definately advertise this wonderful stay we had. My only suggestion is please make sure the shower doors close, as this made it a mission everytime one got out of the shower because the water would have pooled on the floor.

I stayed in Sandton Sun in April 2014. I really liked staffs professionalism and their hospitality. The ambiance is superb. Suitable both for business and leisure stay. Me and my family liked it very much. The rooms were clean, and spacious. Breakfast were satisfying. We liked family vise, and strongly recommend everyone who will go to Johannesburg.

Beware of rooms facing the outside terrace on the 6th floor.Guests drink , chat and laugh loudly until all hours and the noise carries up to the rooms.

Well situated hotel with good service and breakfasts

Easy access to the Sandton Mall and its restaurants, Security is a high priority of the Management and above all very friendly..When the work in the next door office ends ... the hotel will be the niche for Business travellers.

Rooms though very neat are very old-fashioned thus urgent need to bring them up to standard in keeping with latest trends. TV screens for example in the executive room should have internet connections, etc
