The Sandton Sun was an outstanding relaxation and breathe away from the busy world. An oasis in the heart of Jozi!
We were treated with the utmost courtesy at all times and blown away at how friendly the staff were. A definite return destination!!!

I spent four days here on a business trip. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable, and the people were friendly and helpful.
Due to time constraints, I ended up taking dinners in the hotel, and both the restaurant and bar food were excellent. I recommend the seafood platter at the restaurant, and the beef burger at the bar. The burger was practically meat loaf in a bun!

Everything was really nice, specially when you have walking distance access to Sandton Sun mall.
I Enjoyed the Nespresso machine in my room every morning.

What I really hate was the wifi connection, it was VERY SLOW and keeps asking for username/password every once and a while.

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.
