My stay at the hotel was supposed to be a treat to my partner. We decided to stay there because of its close location to the airport and apparent 'great reputation' . First problem we encountered was that our cab driver took us to the wrong City lodge. This happened because the names are so similar and On Google Maps... More

Thank you for staying with us. We would like to apologise for the experience of the cold shower and for the fact that your special visit was not what it should have been. Having to have a cold shower is definitely a very unpleasant experience – especially in winter - and we will be taking this query up with the... More

Very convenient just a few mins drive from the airport, and in my case, the office too. The hotel is perfect for a businessman, with large comfortable rooms and spacious bathrooms; a small bar area where you can have drinks, dinner and snacks, which is just alongside the breakfast/dinner seating area, where you can also sit with a drink at...

The rooms were clean, good beds, nice restaurant and lounge.....it was a lovely, if short stay. The staff was friendly and efficient. We had a convenient and quiet first floor room. I would definitely recommend this hotel which, by the way, is also reasonably priced.

We were here to leave early in the morning for Durban. The comfort level was good and the hotel seems a very good alternative for the Intercontinental. They serve good hamburgers and some nice beverages. The hotel is spacious and more luxurious than expected for an average airport hotel. Rooms were nice and clean and they serve an excellent breakfast.... More

Traveling recently to Namibia, stayed here on a layover. Very nice room, nice, efficient staff, great restaurant. All around a pleasant stay at an airport. We had firearms and they had no issues. A very hunter friendly hotel onsite of the airport.

The room was spotless, with a comfortable bed and all the goodies one needs. Even though it was close to the highway, it was still quiet. The downside of this chain of hotels, is they are not vegan friendly, and for that reason i normally avoid them. Quite silly if you think it just takes some soy milk and maybe... More

Great, friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. 10 mins by Uber to the airport. Rooms well equipped and very clean. Although close to high way it was not at all noisy. Would be easier to write a review if you did not have to write 200 words.

Comfortable, clean, everything worked and the friendliest hotel staff I have ever encountered. Bit of a limited food choice but all of the menu options I tried were excellent. I stayed here for two weeks on a business trip and was incredibly well looked after for a three star hotel. Would definitely stay here again if I travel to Johannesburg... More

I have stayed at this CityLodge for more than 6 years and I find it improves every trip. The check in is a well-designed process with no hassle for credit cards presented on-line by colleagues (so I do not have the actual card).
