Reviewed 27 July 2014

The stay at this hotel was very pleasant. The staff are very courteous. The rooms are not luxurious but are very clean. The shuttle service is also an added bonus if you require transport. The driver, Nelson, is excellent. He is so polite, drives really well and certainly is an asset to this hotel. He is a true gentleman. Breakfast provided a good variety of options to enjoy. The location is also good as there is a nice selection of restaurants and a supermarket across the road at a shopping mall.

I have always loved Katherine Street for the provacy it affords me. One can actually go in and out without being seen by anyone except the security guard. The units are also independent and big enough for one to be able to make a long stay without feeling trapped or suffocated.

The environment, although in the busy Sandton, makes it easy to forget that you are actually in town because you do not see anything of the outside world.

This is my preferred stay when in Johannesburg

Room Tip: Always request to stay in the outer independent units, NOT in the main building. Your privacy will b...

I enjoy staying at this hotel as it is very easily accessible from all major roads especially if you do not stay in this province or your knowledge of Johannesburg and Sandton is limited. It is small enough to be cosy and intimate without the feel of bigger hotels where you are lost in the crowd and just become a number. The service is personal and the rooms offer the warmth of a classical style yet with all the modern facilities. I recommend the suites and units that offer a degree of self catering ability. This is one of the few hotels that offer you a stand alone shower and bath as opposed to those clumsy arrangements where your shower is in your bath and you have to use a horrible shower curtain that leaves your bath drenched in water. I was here for business and enjoyed my stay and this is one of my hotels of choice in Johannesburg.

We stayed here recently with a young adult son. We picked this place because it had a 2 bedroom suite so he did not have to have a separate room, and because the location was close to shopping/Gautrain station. Also, we needed a place with a restaurant because we were arriving in the evening and did not feel comfortable going out to find a place to eat. I know Sandton is safe, but we just did not feel comfortable. We had already stayed in a similar hotel in another part of Johannesburg earlier in our trip to Africa and by comparison I have to stay we preferred the other place because the Southern Sun was not as friendly or convenient (location wise). When arriving it was unclear how to check-in. There were two desks with people sitting at them but they did not look up and invite us over, so we were not sure if that was where you were supposed to check in or if they were part of a business office. We had to awkwardly stand around until the porter came over to greet us and I asked where to check in. After we checked in the very friendly porter helped us find our room and get our luggage in, and asked if the check-in person had told us about the on-site restaurant, eating establishments nearby, etc. The check-in person had not, so he told us everything. If it had not been for the porter all we would have would be the room with no idea about the pool, restaurant hours, bar, business facilities, etc. and there was no "book" in the room that described the hotel services. It turned out that the hotel was a good distance from the Sandton shopping area it was located near, but the hotel had a free shuttle that was easy enough to use to get there. One minor oddity was that even though we had a two bedroom suite there was only one shower, which was ensuite with the twin bed bedroom. The master bedroom had a nice bathroom but only a bathtub. So overall the stay was nice, and the restaurant was very good, but the friendliness of the staff and convenience of location was less so than the hotel we previously stayed at in Rosebank, and the price of the Southern Sun was more.

This must be one of the best Southern Sun hotels. The concept is great and service is always very good.As a business hotel I always like to visit this place and have also been here when on holiday.The concept of having the rooms as apartments is great.
