Short overview video about our room at Southern Sun O.R. Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg, South Africa.
For one night OK
We spent one night in the Southern Sun O.R. because there was no more feeder flight to the Kruger National Park. The hotel completely fulfilled its purpose to spend a comfortable and carefree night. The hotel shuttle brought us to the terminal the next morning in time to continue our journey.
The infrastructure of the hotel is in order. It was so far all neat and good at first glance. The lobby, the restaurant and the fitness center had all the comforts you would expect from a four-star hotel. The complex, as far as we could judge, was even handicapped accessible. In any case, there was a ramp that led to the elevators. As a Western European, one simply noticed the quality differences in the construction, but as already mentioned, everything was ok and clean so far.
We stayed in a Superior Room. Room No. 206. The room was equipped with a comfortable bed. The wardrobe was a bit plottering, but we didn’t use it anyway. The safe inside didn’t work – or maybe we were just too stupid to use it ;-). The bathroom and toilet were clean so far. The shower worked perfectly and you could meet your hygiene needs.
In the evening we went to the hotel restaurant for dinner. The service was very attentive and the food good. Basically the staff was very friendly to us, but we did not miss the fact that the service did not treat all guests equally. We believe that regardless of race, religion or any other characteristic, every person should receive the same attention and respect.
For a short stay (1-2 nights) the hotel is suitable and can be recommended.
