As usual Southern Sun Katherine Street has provided the best value all round especially in terms of client services. The Assistant General Manager, Gabi Ihrybauer, assisted me with arranging accommodation for the following 2 weeks for my family and myself. Gabi personally took accountability and kept me informed every step of the way right through to confirmation. I travel frequently... More

Great to stay in this hotel again. Rooms quiet and clean. Staff friendly and smiling! Quieter and less bustle than Sandton Sun, but need to use shuttle to get to Mandela square. Excellent Grill house over the road in Atholl Square.

The Southern Sun Katherine Street is in the prosperous suburb of Sandton, about a 20 minute drive from the CBD. It is about three blocks from Mandela Square and the restaurants and shopping at Michelangelo Towers. The rooms are spacious, well-appointed and clean. The bathrooms are especially attractive, with dark travertine tiles, large bathtubs, and stand-alne showers. The hotel itself... More

The staff were uniformly polite, friendly, and helpful. The property was well cared for, and clean. A very relaxing stay. The breakfast buffet offered many quality selections and the cooked items were equally good.

I have always seen this hotel looking "lonely and bored" on the roadside on my way to and from Sandton City Centre. Whilst at a distance it does look elegant, there is frankly nothing inspiring about it. I chose it quite recently because of its good rate at the time I was travelling. I was on business and was going... More
