Best location, brilliant revamped rooms, comfy, great breakfast and you can't get a better location than this. Stroll from Gautrain or be collected by complimentary shuttle. Walk into Sandton City / ICC convention center. Don't need to even hire a car if you business is based in Sandton. Brilliant hotel, I frequent it always and stay nowhere else in Sandton....

Stayed at the newly refurbished Sandton Sun hotel in Johannesburg in June 2016. Outstanding service from this well established hotel . Centrally located and attached to the Sandton City Mall. The Breakfast selection was of the highest standard as well as the room service menu. Bedrooms and bathrooms are new and it has been a huge improvement to this hotel.
