I have stayed at the Southern Sun at OR Tambo in Johannesburg three times in the last 10 years on my trips to Botswana. All have required me stay one night in Johannesburg. I have stayed here in 2007, 2009 and 2017. All three times the hotel has been very nice, clean, the room well taken care of and the...

This one of the hotels that makes life around the airport very convenient. The bus service is reliable and convenient. The staff is very friendly and helpful. i would not rate internet connectivity very high. but the overall experience is positive. The rooms are also bigger than most rooms in the same price range in the area

At meal times the entire hotel including rooms is filled with fried oil smell. They should install an effective air circulatin system. Maintenance is poor. Hotel looks rundown. When I last stayed here in 2013 the conditions were much better. For a one night stay as a budget hotel to catch the flight, it is convenient. For longer stay avoid.
