This 4-star hotel is centrally located with a lovely swimming pool to enjoy on the hot summer days. Very friendly and helpful staff. We really enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful breakfast. We will definitely stay here again. An enclosed sky bridge links the hotel to the Mimosa Shopping Mall. Abrie and Natalie

After a 2 week holiday I got the best nights rest of the two weeks. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and quiet. So many hotels have noisy passages - not SS Bloem. Breakfast was very busy but good. Real value for money.

The perfect stopover after a long drive from PE en route to Durban. Spacious room, awesome shower and comfortable bed. The dark curtains allow no light in allowing for a wonderful sleep. Adjoined to a mall is a real convenience for a choice of supper.

The well established Southern Sun Bloemfontein in the city of roses offers guests a warm welcome in very convenient and tranquil surroundings. The Mimosa Mall is a welcome neighbour and the hotel is pleasantly quiet, although it is in the heart of the metropolis.
