Stayed 1 night (10 Oct 2016), booked a Double Room on Expedia for just under USD110 excluding breakfast. Was in Johannesburg for transit, chose this hotel for the location. No clear signs inside the airport, had to ask a few people before I found the hotel. Had an early international flight at 7am, which meant check-in at 5am, so being...

This hotel is the ideal place for transiting clients. It's right at the airport, has excellent rooms, has wifi, and great breakfast. I was able to check in online and then just leisurely walk to the airport. The rates are very reasonable too. I'm no longer going to use the hotels away from the airport. The front desk staff was...

We had stayed here when travelling through OR Tambo airport in the past, so this was a return visit and we were not disappointed. The high standards have been maintained. The reception staff were very professional and efficient but not all were very welcoming. The first room that we were given had a fault with a blind that separated the...

We returned from Chiang May to Bulawayo and stayed for the night at City Lodge before our last leg of our trip back home. Rooms are smallish but the bed and shower are very welcome after >24h airplane/airport life ;-). Bathroom was accesible for physically impaired guests. Free Wifi worked just fine. Location on top of Parking 2 is very...

I don't mind staying here. Cost effective and a safe walk (a decent distance up along the carpark) to the hotel. Check in can be busy at certain times however staff are always helpful and try to push through as quick as possible. Only downside after a 14 hour flight is no room service and mini bar. Have to go...

Originally, we stayed here one night passing through Johannesburg on our 14 day Cape Town, Thornybush Safari, and Victoria Falls tour arranged by our tour company, Rhino Africa. We were surprised at what a nice property it was especially situated in a large airport. It was convenient, easy to find, clean, modern and had great service. For this reason, we...

Great place to stay, especially if you have a connecting flight. Very nice rooms and no airport noise. The food in the restaurant was great. Friendly staff, easy check in and check out. I would stay there again, no questions asked.

Stayed here for one night en route to another local destination. Landed at around 10pm and it was so convenient to simply walk to your hotel - undercover all the way.

Thank you for staying with us. While we’re glad you liked the location of the hotel and the comfortable, quiet rooms, we’re not so glad you didn’t like the food in our #Cafe. Although it is not a full-blown restaurant, it does offer a range of light meals to meet various tastes and budgets. We will certainly take your comments...

Third time here, still upholding highest standards! Friendliest staff too. Very clean rooms, best location for fliers, a few minutes walk from the departure and arrival terminals of the airport! Will stay here any time!
