I was given a room on the first floor. Nice view from my room. Well maintained rooms and pleasant front desk staff. The staff in the coffee shop have to be trained. It has a nice restaurant within the campus. You can do a morning walk in the campus.

My wife and I were booked into a different Jo'burg hotel for one week, I was on business and my wife sightseeing etc. We checked out of the first hotel because of a lack of facilities and poor location after just one day. Expecting possibly more of the same we we were very pleasantly surprised to find this chain hotel... More

After my disastrous attempt at staying somewhere other than a City Lodge when in Johannesburg on business I decided to stay at the Katherine street City Lodge. I have not stayed in this lodge before, as I normally stay in the Bryanston location. I will however, from now on, stay in Katherine Street. Look, City Lodge's are good, a consistently... More

With a great location and it's nice spacious rooms - this hotel is a gem. Eventhough their motto is 'Be kind' - I must admit that I have never been to a hotel where the staff were so helpfull and in all trying to meet our needs. We had a late flight out of Jo'burg and really needed a late... More

We were visiting Johannesburg for a quick trip and we stayed again at this City Lodge - close to Sandton City Shopping Centre. The lodge has now improved the availability of an adjacent restaurant - Carpe Diem - excellent value and very friendly staff. No need to journey oput for the relasxing evening meal.

This hotel served its purpose as a pleasant, relaxing overnight stay. It s very well positioned in the heart of Sandton, close to the highway, Sandton City mall and the Gautrain station. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms a good size, with everything required for the one night stay. Breakfast was an extra cost, but well... More

It was good enough for me - you can easily take a walk to Nelson Mandela Square and you can connect to OR Tambo from the nearest Gautrain station with no hassles. The room I stayed in could have been lovelier with a mini-bar. If you don't want to eat in there's convenience of deliveries and the numbers of most... More
