I often use the Southern Sun Hyde Park when visiting Jhb. I find the staff to be welcoming, the rooms are clean and spacious (deluxe) and very comfortable. Breakfast is great and the restaurant has a spectacular view of Jhb. If you choose one of the higher floor rooms you will also have a magnificent view of the city from...

I was there with a group and rooms were clean and comfortable. Room was on 2nd floor and looked out to a parking lot. Breakfast was good and plenty. Rooms on higher floor might be a better bet if view is better. Next door to a good shopping mall.

This was not a very friendly hotel. No warmth in the decor nor from the staff. Most importantly, the power went out on our second day and they operated on generator for the rest of our stay. That meant limited lighting and no TV. No lights in bathroom at all. They only refunded us for one night. There were other...

Stayed for one night for a business trip. Fantastic experience right from the start. Parking was a dream and once inside, the friendly and professional young lady we dealt with got us checked in quickly and effortlessly. The room was spotlessly clean and the I must say that the interior decor is quite stunning. Enjoyed a brilliant supper at one...

Great Hotel. Superbly located adjacent to Hyde Park Shopping Centre which allows one to walk across from the Hotel to the Shopping Centre. The Bar is extremely popular with the locals on Friday evenings for after work drinks and has a real vibe to it. Rooms are funky and stylish.

An excellently appointed room with comfortable bed and good work area makes this hotel a joy to stay in. The food is excellent and if you like cheese then you must try the four cheese pizza, by far the best meal I had during my stay. However, it was the staff that was the icing on the cake. Wonderful service,...

For many years I have visited this hotel, and after a one-year hiatus, I am happy and relieved to report that it continues to keep up high standards of comfort and service. Although listed as a four-star property, I would rate it as a 4.75 star hotel, not decadently luxurious, but nonetheless extremely pleasant and comfortable. The staff continue to...
