Visited JHB to see family and stayed here for 4 nights. They were running a special and it was attractive to book here but at the end I realized that I should have taken SS Hyde Park or Sandton. The rooms are fantastic and spacious will full Dstv and video player, very friendly stuff but few issues that totally put...

Dear Donald, Thank you for your review of Southern Sun Katherine Street. Unfortunately with all the road works in the heart of Sandton, Katherine Street does get busy during peak times as it is the only road that will get you onto the highway. We specifically make all hot items to order to ensure freshness and that items are cooked...

Friendly staff, excellent accommodation in apartment; great outsourced restaurant on premises. The hotel is situated in the new business hub of Sandton, but has a country- house feel. Close to Gautrain station with free shuttle to the station

This was the first hotel that I stayed in while in South Africa for two weeks in July. I've been back home for about 3 weeks now and can better reflect on my stay. This hotel had the best bed of the five hotels I stayed in while in South Africa. It was really soft. They also had the best...

This Southern Sun property is located just outside the heartland of Sandton. It is a well maintained property which takes you a little but out of the hussle and bussle of Sandton as it is situated on spacious grounds with a lawn, large pool and quiet rooms with a great on-premise restaurant. There are a wide range of amenities just...

The overall experience was good and I will come back to the Hotel. The Shower light did not work and the shower was dark inside. The shower door did not close properly. This resulted in me spilling water into the passage to the bedroom.

I have stayed over at this hotel over the years and whereas the restaurant used to be an absolute pleasure, the standards have continued to drop. This morning we had breakfast which was tasteless - tasted like it had stood in a warming drawer for ever. (Could it be because a member in our party ordered haddock?)The coffees were equally...

It is not one of your 5-star hotels but the hotel staff especially front desk staff are awesome and the hotel feels very cosy. Great location near major shopping Malls (not walking distance though). Breakfast was very good you get to order hot food from the menu and cold selections from buffet.

Rooms and food were OK but nothing exceptional. I did not find the staff very helpful. The hotel-arranged airport pickup was not well-handled at all: the driver dragged all of us, luggage and all, to the underground parking without assistance with luggage, trollies or lifts. We lugged our bags down a narrow staircase. Service was slow: perhaps the hotel is...

Nice and centrally located hotel. Rooms very spacious! Let down by poorly trained staff that are not helpful. Breakfast a total rip off! 165 for eggs benedict! Not all walk ways undercover and you get wet when walking from main building to parking and your room.
