Very nice classy hotel. Comfortable, spacious rooms with friendly staff. Breakfast is really good and I especially enjoyed the variety with smoked salmon, fruits, pastries and even oysters! The hotel is close to the Gautrain station as well. Overall a pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Choose a room close to the elevator if you can, it can be a long walk if it is on the other end as t...

My family of 5 went during the June Holidays to Sandton Sun. The staff were really wonderful and the breakfast was excellent. Alhough the hotel is more a corporate hotel, we loved the atmosphere and the hotel is linked to the Sandton Mall and Nelson Mandela Square. Breakfast was excellent and my 3 kids ate for free. The rooms were absolutely comfortable. I will go back to Sandton Sun any day

Very good a overall. Thank you for allowing me to focus on my work.
I visited Johannesburg for business. And insist on Sandton sun. In addition to being close to Mandela square. A plaza with many restaurants that is relatively safe. The service is great compared to what I have experienced in Johannesburg. Staff are courteous as long as you are kind to them ;-)
South Africans in general will not let anyone get away with disrespectful attitudes.

It is a easy and very good business hotel at Sandton, good services, near to the train, very friendly people and that`s the important point. To the train station I need 10min max. Good view from the room, not cheap!

We had wonderful stay, It was my husband's birthday, The hotel surprised him with a bottle of champagne and a desert platter that read "Happy birthday". Later in the evening we got more surprises!!. the room was decorated with rose petals and more chocolates!!.
We were very spoiled and humbled by the attention we received.!!
We are very grateful to Sandton Sun and we look forward to staying with you soon.

Stay here regularly for work. It's a nice area of the city with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. Hotel facilities are excellent and has a walkway leading right into the shopping mall.

Everything about the hotel is impressive from the hotel lobby to the luxurious spacious room. Great coffee machines in rooms too!

Stayed for 3 nights at Sandton Sun on business and was very impressed by the quality of staff, surroundings and service.
When not in meetings at the Business Centre which was excellent - the Mall was across the way as was the Convention Centre. Gym across the Skywalk had all that is needed for a good workout.
Rooms lovely and despite a building site next door, noise was limited.
Saw a lot of families obviously on holiday - so it appears a good place for both work and holidays.
