My wife and I spent 3 nights in the Southern Sun Hotel, Hyde Park and were really impressed. From some of the most courteous staff I have ever encountered, to the comfortable, functional rooms, to the high quality cuisine (both breakfast and dinner), we could find very little to fault. My only gripe would be that the swimming pool is...

Hyde Park Hotel has been a regular favourite haunt for a number of years. The staff are always brilliant from those on the door, to reception to the Rooftop Terrace Bar. The bar buzzes on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons! The Terrace is a suntrap if the weather is kind! Fabulous sunsets.

Great family hotel providing the perfect base to explore johannesburg. Perfectly located for easy access to most attractions as well adjoining one of the top shopping malls.

The most frustrating issue was the limited internet.. I had to resort to using international data on my phone just to make an airline reservation.. For this reason I would not choose to stay at any on the Southern Sun Hotels again

Good location, good staff very nice rims with good views towards down-town. Like very much the roof terrace with a pool and bar. Excellent breakfast. The meny for room service could have been better, but after all this is a very good hotel. Stayed here twice for in total 6 nights

Great view, nice vibe. Ordered sushi - pretty pricey but thought hey, sure it'll be worth it. Smallest salmon in roses (if you can call them that) for R30 each. Rest of the sushi so tiny and poorly assembled. Hungry and disappointed

Loved the access control right from the elevator (lift) to the rooms. Quiet and modern furnishing. Friendly staff and direct access to Hyde Park Corner. A little far away from everything but it's also a plus (i.e. safe).
