Like some other fellow travellers, I got the wrong hotel though. However, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise as there are more amenities in this one compared to the one at the airport. The shuttle was available in 30mins interval with a minor fee, back and forth about 5mins each direction. Staff from both hotels are friendly and... More

On check-out I mentioned to the check-out staff that this was the best hotel I had stayed in during 2015 - and I've stayed in many this year. The room was clean, neat and very quiet - I got a very good night's sleep. The food in the restaurant (both breakfast and dinner) was excellent. The Wi-Fi was easy to... More

When we arrived after a very long flight and what seemed like a very long walk through the parking garage, we were told we did not have a reservation and they were full. After about a half hour, it was determined that we had a reservation at the "other" airport City Lodge. We had to pay for a cab to... More

We stayed just 1 night en route from safari to Mauritius. It is so convenient you don't even have to leave the airport. I was pleasantly surprised by how new and clean everything was. We were able to have a very nice meal in the restaurant and although we had a 6am departure, they provided us with a very full... More

Very appropriate for short stay especially for business trips. Very comfortable with everything that a traveler needs - Food, amenities, nice hotel, nice views, within the airport vicinity. You don't have to rush. You can shop around at the airport leisurely.

Stayed here 3 nights (individual stop-overs) over the span of 2 weeks. Each time was pleasant, rooms were clean, staff were friendly. Service in the cafe/restaurant can be a bit slow. Be aware that food there seems to be more pre-prepared (ie re-heat and serve) than made fresh for each order. However the food is still acceptable. Bar service was... More

We went recently to Johannesburg and stayed here overnight on our way to and from Cape Town. On arrival I Found the staff to be pleasant and very helpful. The Rooms were clean and comfortable.
