The hotel is dated but clean(and I'm fussy) bed comfortable. The shuttle leaves every 15 minutes from the airport to the hotel and visa Versa and is only a 5 minute journey. They strongly suggest the shuttle and not to walk for security. The staff are great and the restaurant is as good as any I have stayed at in...

This was a great way to end our tour in South Africa. We stayed a few days to see sites in Johannesburg. It has all the amenities you need - breakfast included, laundry service available, room service, pool, gym and shuttle to airport for food court/gau train.

Comfortable rooms, good amenities, lovely buffet dinner, prompt service, and excellent staff - what more do you need? Oh yes it's a very short ride to the airport either by your own car or the airport shuttle.

The restaurant was very good. Very helpful staff and excellent food. The room was tired and in need of a makeover. On drawing the curtains they fell down. Wifi was slow and not given to us on checking in.

I loved the food, and the staff was very helpful. Their room service is 24 hours and quick. The place is very close to the airport and has shuttle service, you can never miss your flight. I also enjoyed the music that was always playing in the reception area during the evenings.

Nice hotel with good service and a good restaurant. Only catch is that a shuttle is required to get to and from the Terminals at OR Tambo and they only operate to and from at certain times of the day. In my case I arrived early one morning and had to wait 45minutes for the shuttle when I determined that...

It's a good hotel, close to the airport .... the room was clean... the only problem was that we booked a room for 3 people and they gave us a room with two beds.... They said there was none in this hotel.... Strange, we booked the room online...
