The reviewer who recently gave this venue a 5 must have been staying in a different room if not the different era that the hotel harks back to . . . My room was more like a long corridor positioned over the kitchen (smells) and adjacent to a large compressor system (noise). My window overlooked an extremely dank and dirty raised yard - so much for the advertised garden views . . WiFi was a joke and the business centre did not have a printer, so I was unable to print out the documents I required for an early morning meeting (staff tried the reception printer but the results were unusable). Missed breakfast due to the printer fiasco so can't comment on that . . .Yes the area is well positioned for business meetings - but there are choices . .

Most things were marginal about this hotel. Rooms are OK, but after staying in two separate rooms over two week period, I had to call the maintenance several times. Pool was not heated, and not usable. The entire property was old and generally uninviting. Breakfast was good, but inconsistent.
Overall, I would suggest looking elsewhere unless location is a must for you. There are no other options that I know of in this immediate area.

Staff were friendly and went out of their way to help, particularly with the several bags needed at the beginning of our month-long trip. The hotel has a warm, old-worldly feel. Lovely grounds and fine woodwork in hallways are well-maintained. Room was comfortable and quiet.

I stayed at Sunnyside Hotel for 4 nights in May 2011 for business travel and found it disappointing. Wireless access is spotty. No iron in the room (and put in a request to have one delivered but it never arrived. My toilet broke and I had to have a service man in my room twice. I used the gym everyday but the machines weren't very good. Also, the hotel is in a fairly remote location and they are reluctant to have taxis come into the grounds and instead always want you to use their shuttle service. The beds were great and the staff was nice. But overall a very disappointing experience. I would not return.

The owners of the Sunnyside Park Hotel also own the Michalengelo - a ridiculously upmarket, over the top hotel in Sandton which is the epitome of bad taste. Hummers parked at the door, etc. But the Sunnyside Park, miraculously, is old, unspoilt, set on expansive, beautiful grounds and simply excellent in terms of its service and food and beverage quality. It is one of the best hotels in central Joburg period. As long as your business or leisure is central Joburg (and not the northern suburbs) you are well located. Travel to the northern suburbs is only about 20 minutes away; it's quite close to the highway. This is a spectacular hotel available at unbelievably good value.
