Well located near Johannesburg international airport, this hotel is given you a nice breakfast and quiet rooms for a reasonable price. Just ask not to be on the road side. Rooms are ok even if not that big...

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

I booked this thinking it was inside Joburg airport but it is not! There is another City Lodge hotel inside the airport! This one is a few minutes away by cab which cost 120 rand (about US $10.) They also have an hourly airport shuttle for 78 Rand. The hotel was fine - quiet room, friendly staff, good breakfast. Fine... More

I booked online for the City Lodge O R Tambo and the website automatically booked me into another hotel which was 15mins away from the airport, when I found out that I was booked into another hotel, I immediately cancelled the booking, I then phoned their call centre to find out why this was happening, they told me that their...

We erred with the accommodation booking at another establishment and when we phoned, a little desperate, the call was received courteously and so was the reception. The room was tidy and the request for an off-menu breakfast was dealt with in no time. Your staff was noticeably pleasant and the awesome greeting of your guard at the gate when we... More

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
