We spent one night at this Barbara Road City Lodge and were very impressed. Having said that, they don't offer any proper evening meals, just sandwiches and wraps, but you can get food sent in.They more than make up for this with the amazing breakfast, everything you can think of appears by magic overnight. Hot, cold, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, pastries,... More

5 minute's drive from the airport without traffic and there's plentiful free parking. Rooms are decent and clean as can be expected from this chain. I had a room facing away from the freeway and there was almost no noise at night with the window open. Breakfast is good and service fast and friendly. Not designed for long stays or... More

Great service, great food, great accommodation. Geared for businessmen more than families, especially those passing to and from Oliver Thambo Airport, there are shuttle services for ease of transport. I had a problem with my door key....it was literally sorted out in 5 minutes! Service at this hotel is paramount. What puts the cherry on the top for me is... More

As evidenced by many of the reviews of this hotel that incorrectly peg it for the actual City Lodge Hotel Tambo attached to the airport, this City Lodge on Barbara Road is a 10 min. ride (taxi or shuttle) from the airport. I came in for a business workshop with several other colleagues.from different parts of the road and we... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night whilst transferring from Mozambique to Kruger. Very convenient as one doesn't have to go outside. Quite a long walk, but well signed and we found people very helpful in pointing us in the right direction initially. Rooms beautifully clean. All usual facilities, comfortable bed. Evening meal and breakfast were excellent, good... More

The rooms in this hotel are very nice and clean, with a desk for working as well. The wifi is complimentary for an hour and US$18 a day. You can do by the hour as well, but still rather expensive. The in room dining menu is more extensive and has better options than the coffee shop downstairs. The food was... More

This hotel is attached to the airport, making it very convenient if you have an early flight. It's easy to get to the departure gates for both national and international flights without having to exit the building. Plus, you have a full range of goods and services available within this huge airport. I found the most knowledgeable staff to be... More

I booked this reservation at the wrong hotel thinking you are at the Airport. When I got to the OB Tambo airport location they called your hotel for me and spoke to your hotel who arranged my cancellation BUT the charge is still on my Credit Card. I didn't stay here and didn't get my refund because it was booked... More

Always stay at this hotel when having to do business in the area. Staff are great especially the dining staff. Never too much hassle from staff to assist with queries or to accommodate a request. Been going to this hotel for +-11 years.

I think people are confused about this hotel - there are two City Lodges - one is literally attached to the airport which we tried to get in to but it was full so they referred us to this one which is about 10 mins drive by taxi (or you can get a shuttle from the airport). We found the... More
