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). The hotel now provided 1 hour of free internet each day which is more than enough to... More

I have stayed in many a City lodge in my time and normally really enjoy my stay. This time however I was dismayed! Check in took over half an hour the service staff were rude and the hotel was understaffed. We sat down to dinner which took over an hour to get to us, the 3rd time I asked for... More

I stay at this hotel quite often as it is close to our office in Edenvale. The checkin is quick and uncomplicated, the rooms are clean, fairly modern and the beds comfortable. Perfect for a good nights rest.

Perfect place to stay if you are in transit and don't want to be just next to the airport. It is five minutes from the airport and the shuttle bus departs every half hour from the airport. Lovely rooms and bathrooms and breakfast is delightful.

We stayed for a short night after a late night - early morning arrival from Nairobi. Note this is not the airport city lodge but it is the City Lodge "near the airport" ZAR 150 proposed each way for a pick up but consider renting a car as we did and it was cheaper. Hotel room is small but comfy,... More
