Reviewed 15 January 2017

Good location, good staff very nice rims with good views towards down-town. Like very much the roof terrace with a pool and bar. Excellent breakfast. The meny for room service could have been better, but after all this is a very good hotel. Stayed here twice for in total 6 nights

Great view, nice vibe. Ordered sushi - pretty pricey but thought hey, sure it'll be worth it. Smallest salmon in roses (if you can call them that) for R30 each. Rest of the sushi so tiny and poorly assembled. Hungry and disappointed

Loved the access control right from the elevator (lift) to the rooms. Quiet and modern furnishing. Friendly staff and direct access to Hyde Park Corner. A little far away from everything but it's also a plus (i.e. safe).

I stayed at SS Hyde Park for a two-day business meeting. Conferencing staff were very helpful and friendly, the meeting room was well equipped and had enough daylight. My hotel room was also comfortable albeit a bit difficult to navigate as there wasn't a lot of space. Noteworthy is their bar with a pool deck which has a nice vibe.

It's gifted with magnificent views and a warm atmosphere. Loved the rooftop swimming pool and classy lounge. The service was great. Watching the sunset over Jan Smuts Avenue from the roof top was stunning. Will definitely visit again.

The bar was great. The service great and the view over Johannesburg. It's a must if you want to see the sunset with a nice drink in your hands. The food is nice, fresh and delicious. I enjoyed my stay and so did my friends.

This is a very nice and modern hotel, located in a good part of Jo'Burg and attached to a small luxury mall. Their roof terrace is super cool and a great place to have a glass of wine and chill. Rooms are large and comfortable - was upgraded to a deluxe room. Primary reason why not 5 stars is that...

Friendly staff with an excellent location especially for first time visitors to Johannesburg, South Africa. Huge rooms and bathrooms. Excellently appointed. Breakfast is exceptional, quaint pool bar and great customer service. The mall that is attached to the hotel offers guests the option to shop for food, shopping and entertainment without leaving home.
