Sandton Sun is well-located right next to Sandton City and the Sandton Convention Centre. The hotel is luxurious but the key highlights for me are the San Deck, which is great for sundowners and the spa, which is one of my favourite spas. Read the full review on my blog. Link in profile.

3 of us stayed at Sandton Sun for a business trip and were very pleased with it. We did not realize the mall that is connected was so nice. The hotel restaurant and deck were fantastic. I would have preferred to have a dresser or some place to keep my clothes instead of my suitcase but that isn't a huge...

The hotel is connected on the 6th floor to the conference center, so you don't have to go outside if you don't want to. It is also connected to the mall and is also fairly near the Sandton Gautrain stop from the airport. The room was very nice and quiet. The water pressure was very good and you can drink...

I stayed one night for business reasons. The Sandton Sun is a very well managed luxury hotel, conveniently placed in the heart of Sandton. Service is superb, the room very well appointed & comfortable. Be aware that breakfast is expensive.

They are attached to a conference centre and a upmarket shopping complex, all of which in my opinion are secure areas. I have stayed in both hotels over the years, the Sun having being...
