I've stayed in almost every Southern Sun hotel in South Africa due to my previous profession. As the name says, this is a "Stay easy" and not a holiday hotel. Perfect for quick stays and comfortable enough to make you feel "at home"...but not for too long. Greatest part of the hotel is its location to the Eastgate mall. We had dinner at the mall. Check in and check out was quick and pain-free. Staff were friendly enough. Our one complaint would be with regards to breakfast, unless you're an early riser and get there early most of the buffet breakfast finishes quickly. The tables weren't cleared quickly and we had to stand around for a few seconds to try spot a clean, free table.
All in all its a good budget hotel. We tried to log on to the WiFi but didn't understand how it worked so gave up. We will use it again if we're in need of easy and affordable accomodation.
