I stayed in the grand presidential suite with my family. Absolutely amazing experience, staff were quite friendly. The room was huge and out of this world with lovely complimentary items from the hotel. The hotel leads directly into the Sandton City Centre which provides a unique shopping experience.

Stayed: February 2016, travelled with family

Each year we spend the last three nights of the year at the Sandton Sun (for the last couple of years).

The hotel definitely deserves the five stars its rated, the food is amazing, the staff are friendly and ever ready to please. From the time we arrived we were welcomed by Vinny, we were checked in by Betty and from then on everyone was just as fantastic.

The room very well appointed, good coffee machine and brand new amenities. We were given an upgrade which was welcomed! Breakfast has everything one would expect from a 5 star hotel, pity we couldnt get seating for dinner at the restaurant at new years (apparently booked out months in advance) but that wasn't a big issue.

The hotel is connected to Sandton City so shopping is very convenient as well as other eateries.

Room service was efficient and well presented, through to checkout.

Thanks to all at the Sandton Sun for a great stay!

Lovely place to stay especially if you plan to shop at Sandton City mall. Staff is very friendly and helpful, even had a waitress who greeted us with a big hug and smile every morning. Terrific concierge. Reason only 4 stars: other than great service by staff at breakfast, there was nothing else particularly good about the breakfast so I cannot give it five stars. The hot food was never hot and instead of refilling buffet dishes when they half empty, the staff would wait until there was not much on the dish before refilling them. If we ordered hot food from the kitchen, it took a very long time to come out even on days when the restaurant wasn't busy. The menu had V next to an item we ordered but it came with fish and the entire rest of the dish tasted like fish. The over easy eggs I ordered were hard, there weren't enough plates when the restaurant was busy. The refreshments in the room were not replaced consistently during our stay and after we used two mugs the first day, we were given only one from then on. (There were three of us in the room). The binder in the room was broken, (same problem as last year), the telephone did not always work, nor did the face light in the bathroom. Definitely not a lively hotel and over the time we were there, there were very few people around the lounge and bar area. I would not recommend it for singles but for families it is good value. Rooms not as chic as newer hotel such as Da Vinci but less expensive than it too.

Room Tip: As high up as possible so quieter

The hotel is superb. Service is acceptable as they provide what they supposed to do without being friendly. Breakfast is the worst in the Tsogo Sun group. I think they employed their worst chefs at this hotel. Housekeeping is very efficient. Will not recommend as there are far better hotels for the same price range.
