Sandton Sun - where do I begin? Been here more than 5 times and I keep going back. Service from staff is excellent at anytime of the day, smiling always and ready to help at all times.

The food is okay. The rooms and the bedding is unbelievable. I never want to get out of bed. The rooms are spacious and the view is also nice. The shuttle buses/taxi drivers are very professional yet friendly always offering help.

Things to improve: the food. I would like to see a bit more variety other than sandwiches, and salads.

My best part - It is part of the Sandton Shopping Mall..... best part ever.... lol

overall, the only place to stay in Joburg!!

Receive good service at arrival. Beautiful hotel. Rooms are spacious and neat. Breakfast was very nice, but the hot food was the same as any other hotel. There was a lot of noise from the lounge area at night, which made it hard to sleep. Dinner and in room dinning very expensive.

There is simply no other hotel in Johannesburg quite like the Sandton Sun. The service is exceptional, the food is phenomenal and the staff are all super friendly. If security matters and access to one of the best malls is the world is important then this is the hotel where you should be doing your business. The San Deck is like an open air office during the day and an up market social get together for all from everywhere every night of the week.

I booked a night as a surprise for our anniversary and my boyfriends birthday. The service was incredible. The manager himself helped and organised lighting candles I had set up and the porters, doorman and car guard assisted with the surprise and our comfort for the night. Everything was absolutely perfect. The room had technologically advanced, modern features and most of all a spectacular view from the huge windows that open. Breakfast had a wide variety that was suited to all dietary requirements and the staff were most helpful and efficient.

The service, staff, food, and rooms were of the highest quality. The area is very safe and secure with easy access to attached shopping mall.

The WiFi was the worst Internet service I have had to suffer through on any business trip I've taken. The speed was so slow viewing simple webpages was a 5 minute process. The data caps were plenty high, even with the smaller complementary package. It was the bandwidth that was horrible.

The Internet is so unusable for business I am considering other Sandton hotels for my next stay, even taking all the other wonderful aspects of my stay.
